Ayurveda Basis for Physicians - Constitution and Healing Science

This Ayurveda basic course in two parts is the foundation of every medically and therapeutically oriented training at the European Academy of Ayurveda. This module is designed for medical practitioners and also addresses the use of Ayurveda in European (medical) practices.

The seminar provides an overview of the overall structure of Ayurvedic teachings. You will get to know Ayurveda from its classical side and be introduced to ancient Indian thought.

Using a wealth of examples, the basic course establishes a practical connection to our life situation and highlights the behaviors in our everyday lives that disrupt our balance. In addition to the theoretical basics, the seminar also offers important practical information. You will learn how to determine your Ayurvedic constitution, health-preserving measures and receive an initial introduction to diagnostic procedures and nutritional science.

The basic course for medical practitioners contains additional content that addresses the integration of Ayurveda into modern medicine.
