The perfect herbal series for the Ayurvedic professional
The success of an Ayurvedic Practitioner or Doctor is paramount to their expertise in selecting and combining herbs and formulations. The root texts of Ayurveda provide the recipes of thousands of formulations for various clinical situations. The Ashtanga Hridayam explains that 25% of clinical success depends on the herbs and formulations suggested. The herbs and formulations recommended in the right context, form and dosage, with the right adjuvants can achieve impressive results in various health conditions. We developed this series to address the vast amount of knowledge on herbs and formulations required of a successful Ayurvedic Practitioner or Doctor.
What to expect in this course
In each session of the series, you will learn the most commonly used and effective Vedic formulations as documented in the classical texts. Each class will cover multiple formulations and single herbs. You’ll receive an overview of the formulation, contents of the formulations, method of preparation, specific indications, dosage forms, and appropriate adjuvants. Additional discussions will include special precautions, plus do’s and don’ts while taking formulations based on the specific nature of the recipe. We’ll also review case studies to evaluate the usage of formulations and how they worked in real client scenarios.
The primary root text followed in this program will be Sahasrayogam and Ashtanga Hridayam for the formulations, and Bhava Prakasha for the individual herbs, which are part of the required books for the AD program.
