Vedic Formulations: Clinical Applications Part 5

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. There are thousands of formulations documented in the Ayurvedic root texts. In this series, improve your knowledge of how to select, combine, prepare and apply the most broadly used herbs and formulations in clinical scenarios.


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. 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.

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.

Dr Jay’s words are like sitting in a Gurukul, listening to an Upanishad, from a Rishi. They are so inspiring. So blessed.
Dr. Jay is able to breathe in an incredible liveliness into any the classroom experience. What I really enjoy about his classes is his unique ability to show the same subject matter from many different angles: if you don’t see the subject from one side (due to your own particular way of perceiving things), he will find a way to illuminate for you from the other side.
Dr. J is a true Vaidya. What makes him an especially effective teacher is that he takes great effort to bridge the obvious cultural divide that exists between India an North America. It’s tough, but he does it with ease!
