About the Program:

People with an array of health issues may show up at your door. As an Ayurvedic Health Counselor (AHC) you are equipped to assess baseline criteria like one’s constitution or doṣa imbalance. What happens though when its more than just the doṣas on the rise?

The Advanced Ayurveda Practitioner Training (AAPT) course dives into the aspects of pathology and disease as understood by Ayurvedic parameters and explores the possibilities of its management. At this level of training one will learn about the anatomy and patho-physiological factors which contribute to the progression of an imbalance as well as the later stages of pathology such as vyakti (manifestation) and bheda (classification).  Therapeutic measures as indicated classically as well as simple local aspects of remedial measures will be covered, with attention to scope of practice within the USA.

To create a well-rounded idea of a disorder, it is important to understand the components involved as well as the mechanism, for which this program touches on the conventional basics of disease and pathology.

The program is divided into modules based on various systems in the body. Each module will cover the Ayurvedic anatomy, physiology, pathogenesis and disease description as well as management options including herbs and herbal formulas. The module begins with live sessions which includes lectures, discussions, practical training and case studies followed by weekly webinars. A combination of live as well as online hours allows for convenience and ease of study for those who have full time commitments.
