Ayurveda basis for doctors - concepts and disease factors

This Ayurveda basic course is the foundation of every medical-therapeutic oriented training at the European Academy of Ayurveda. This module is specially designed for medical practitioners and focuses on the use of Ayurveda for local doctors.

The seminar gives an overview of the whole building of Ayurvedic teachings. You will get to know Ayurveda from its classical side and will be initiated into ancient Indian thought.

By means of a wealth of examples, the basic course establishes the practical reference to our life situation and allows us to recognize outdated concepts in our everyday life. Besides the theoretical basics, the seminar also offers important practical information. You will learn how to determine the Ayurvedic constitution, health-preserving measures and get an introduction to diagnostic procedures and food science.
