Welcome to the Ki-Atsu Ayurvedic Lifestyle & Health Consultant Course.. You are about to join a healing tradition that dates back over 5000 years. This course will teach you to incorporate the ancient teachings of Ayurveda into your life and into the lives of others. Through these teachings and through the practice of Ayurveda, you will discover a new way of looking at overall health and a new and unique way of defining disease.
Even though the principles in Astrology can be used in any system, I find the Vedic system to be the most rich and detailed conceptually. In fact, the Vedic people themselves do not call their teachings “Vedic” or “Hindu”. The teachings from which we will start are actually called “Sanatana Dharma” - or “The Eternal Truth”.
Ayurveda believes that everything in this universe is made of five great elements or building blocks and these elements are earth, water, fire, air & ether.
Ayurveda looks at the physical structure of the body in terms of the tissues of the body (the Dhatus), the membranes of the body (the Kalas) and the channels which allow substances to be transported through the body (the Srotas). In this section we will examine the seven dhatus, the seven kalas and the seven srotas, and how they are related and work to form the structure of the body.
The kalas, Srotas, Malas-Ayurvedic Physiology
Ayurveda and Disease When considering the development of disease in the body, it is important to understand the three doshas, Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. How the Doshas increase and decrease in the body based upon a variety of factors can cause imbalances of the body.
In this module we continue to look at the disease process and Assessment of Disease
When considering the treatment of disease with Ayurvedic treatments, it is important to consider the Ayurvedic concept of diet/tastes. dinacharya/daily practices, purification techniques, meditation, asana, gem and color therapy to name a few.
