Study tour: Ayurveda Nutrition Therapy in India - Food as Medicine

Study Ayurveda at universities in the country of origin

The study trip on Ayurveda dietetics and phytotherapy was developed by Kerstin Rosenberg in collaboration with the leading professor of Dravyaguna (nutritional and herbal therapy) in India, Prof. Dr. Tanuja Nesari, now director of the renowned All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) in Delhi/India. The travel group is accompanied by Kerstin Rosenberg and receives daily lessons in theory and practice. This enables the participants to deepen their knowledge of the therapeutic use of foods, spices and herbs. The knowledge of menu composition and preparation of dietary dishes is deepened every day in practical cooking units on Ayurvedic healing cuisine.

The intensive program is designed as advanced training for Ayurvedic nutritionists, therapists and physicians. The study program includes at least 6 hours of daily lessons in theory and practice from selected Ayurveda specialists and professors as well as excursions.
