With public perception of a crisis in our healthcare system, it is now becoming accepted that the future of medicine lies in our nutrition and lifestyle. What could better help us understand how to manage our health than the original source of knowledge and the most enduring and sophisticated system of healing?
Ayurveda is the ancient and timeless, science of life and has been experientially proven over many centuries to help us achieve an optimum state of health and well being.
What you will learn:
- Recognise the person (patient)
Identify their constitutional (genomic) make up (Prakruti); get to know each person’s (including your own) risk factors for disease and their particular nutrition and lifestyle needs to achieve/maintain health
Pulse rate information as predictor of disease
The digestive system is the key to all diseases. Learn about the key role of “agni” aka digestive fire on digestion and assimilation of food and, how you can balance it with diet and lifestyle.
- Connection with the patient
Learn how to get to the root of the issue quickly so that the patient leaves feeling understood and re-assured with new tools for their health
- Connection with the original intention
- What is the intention with which you set out to become a healthcare professional? Learn the tools that actually reconnect you with that orignial intention to relieve suffering
- Connection with intuitive practice
When faced with the problem of what you should do with a patient, learn how to trust your intuition as a healthcare professional.
- Connect with universal energy
How to connect with the source of our energy through practices such as mindfulness and meditation
In Ayurveda we can recognise the constitution of the person through the particularities of their physiological functioning. This is a sophisticated predictor of future disease as well as a reliable gauge of many physiological and mental imbalances, such as inflammation, infection, allergens, immunity, digestive functioning, mental capacities, behavioural aspects, sustainable immunity, hidden / stagnant disease and much more.
Through this knowledge we can discover the causes and the pathogenesis of disease and provide an entirely natural, effective approach using diet, lifestyle, treatment therapies and the harnessing of universal energy.
