This course is designed for students of all kinds whose main desire is to focus on preventative health care. It is no secret that in these modern times, we have deviated slightly from a holistic perspective. What does that mean? That we have forgotten that we are all interconnected beings, not only with other humans, but with nature itself. What happens in nature, happens in us. We are the five elements. Learn what those five elements have to do with your health.
This topic and many more may be found in this course. Most people are looking for a way to lose weight and find their original weight; that is as a result of an imbalance. In this course you will also find a very thorough assessment so that you may better get to your perfect state of balance and discover in which area(s) you are out of balance.
This course is a comprehensive compilation of the most fundamental and basic topics of Ayurveda. Yet, don't be fooled that because it is a foundational course it is not powerful! The exact topics that you are about to learn are the ones that have kept me healthy for the past eight years without having to visit a doctor. I no longer suffer from any ailments that would blow up into a full manifestation of dis"ease".
Ayurveda is yoga's sister science, and they both act as an integrative system for healing, bringing awareness to your consciousness, and transformation to all levels of your existence. This is no small matter. The time has come to expand your horizons and explore what other methods of prevention have to offer. Invest in your most valuable commodity - your health.
- The course is intended for anyone who wants to learn the Basic Laws of Nature in order to have better health. No specific level of knowledge or experience is needed. Anyone is invited to partake in this course. Individuals who are willing to take some extra effort in their own health education and be willing to change some "old patterns" will benefit most from this course.
I applaud your choice to have made an investment in yourself and to take the "Road Less Traveled". You will be pleasantly surprised to discover how powerful Ayurveda really is and its essential teachings. And this is only the beginning!
Why did I start teaching Ayurveda? What led me to this obscure and unchartered path of Ayurveda? It must have been something very transformative and unexpected to have had such a powerful influence in my life.
Learn the difference between that these terms mean. Understanding the difference between Prakruti and Vikruti will help you have a better understanding of how to take the Dosha Assessment that follows. Most people have no idea how to truly take the Dosha Assessment and do not have enough education to know what they are doing. The Dosha Assessments are so popular online, yet they don't explain this very important concept.
This lecture will help you prioritize what Dosha to "treat" first? Now you know your Vikruti & Prakruti and you are asking yourself, what do I do with this information? It is important to keep in mind that you prioritize what is causing you 'dis-ease' while still 'eating right for your dominant Dosha (so that it does not go out of balance). Disclaimer: This lecture is not intended to have you self-diagnose. I would highly recommend that you visit an Ayurvedic Practitioner. Yet, it is good for you to understand what you should prioritize in terms of treating a specific Dosha.
According to Ayurveda, there are causes of disease that we as Westerners are not accustomed to thinking about. Yet if we heed this knowledge, you will find after years and years of living (such as I, close to 50 years old) that there is so much wisdom in this topic. Great knowledge to pass on to your offspring.
Learn the 5 Pitta Subdoshas (Bhrajaka Pitta, Alochaka Pitta, Pachaka Pitta, Ranjaka Pitta, and Sadhaka Pitta) and what diseases arise when Pitta is out of balance in your body. This knowledge will better enable you to make changes in your lifestyle early on so that you may alleviate related symptoms.
Learn the 5 Kapha Subdoshas (Kledaka Kapha, Shleshaka Kapha, Avalambaka Kapha, Bodhaka Kapha, and Tarpaka Kapha) and what diseases arise when Kapha is out of balance in your body. This knowledge will better enable you to make changes in your lifestyle early on so that you may alleviate related symptoms.
At the time your disease has manifested and Western Medicine has diagnosed it and given it a name, you are in the 5th Stage of Disease. Since Ayurveda is a preventative medical system, it is recommended that you have knowledge of what the earlier four stages are in order to prevent getting to the 5th stage.
This is a real life story of how Ayurveda healed my own mother's "Kapha Disease" back in February of 2006. Disclaimer: Not every 'story' or disease will be this easy to heal, but it just goes to show that the cure may be simple. I still do highly recommend that if you are suffering from chronic discomfort that you consult a qualified professional Ayurvedic Practitioner.
Abhyanga is an amazingly powerful practice to perform on a daily basis before you bathe in the morning. This is equivalent to taking care of your furniture and car (when you wax these items to increase their shelf life). Our skin actually absorbs these oils and it is nourished immensely. Massage oils may be purchased at Banyan Botanicals (link below) or at the Ayurvedic Institute (link below).
In order to explain the last and final subject of the most important concept, you will listen to an individual who had a "Near Death Experience" and then watch a mini-clip of what the 4th Dimension looks like. This concept is what the new science of Quantum Physics tries to explain. It is a fascinating subject that the Rishis of India explained so perfectly well at least 5,000 years ago when they explained the subject of "Who Am I?"
