How can one take the leap from Western Medicine to Ayurveda?
After 17 years working as a clinician in the western medicine model, my discovery of Ayurveda has been a blessed awakening.
Ayurveda is correct medicine. I am confident that as I am deepening my understanding of Ayurveda and holistic health, I am now able to adhere to the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm.
The truly holistic nature of Ayurveda provides a complete approach to health, on all levels of the human experience and universal, cosmic understanding. We are learning avenues and explanations of ultimate truth, through the balance of elements & doshas in the body, in our world. In understanding the tri-dosha theory of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, in relation to anatomy and physiology, my view of the human experience has been expanded.
This fundamentals of Ayurveda course has provided an intensive immersion into the deep and complex, yet simple world of Ayurveda, in its homeland of India.
I truly look forward to deepening my understanding and knowledge of this ancient science.
