Anna Vaha Srotas: Ayurvedic Management of the Digestive System

Digestive disorders from acid indigestion to celiac disease, ulcers, and vomiting are all indications that the function of anna vaha srotas is being affected by one’s diet, lifestyle, environment, or other factors. How can these disorders be managed Ayurvedically?

A srotas is a physical and energetic pathway through which water, food and air enter the body; feces, urine and sweat leave the body and the mind and three doshas move within it. Anna Vaha Srotas is the food-carrying channel or gastrointestinal (GI) tract, often referred to as Maha Vaha Srotas (“great” or “large” srotas), due to both its size and importance.

In this live, online webinar, explore the various ways a channel of the body can become imbalanced and the signs and symptoms that show imbalance is present, with special reference to anna vaha srotas. The first line of treatment in Ayurveda is to remove the cause. Vasant Lad shows you some of the causes for imbalance in the digestive system, which often stem from diet, lifestyle and environmental factors.

Drawing from his decades of clinical Ayurvedic experience, he then teaches you ways to manage common anna vaha srotas disorders in yourself and clients by using aushadha (Ayurvedic herbs), ahara (diet), vihara (lifestyle) and other tips and techniques to restore balance and health to this critical channel of the body.

You will also have the opportunity to submit questions about the topic to Vasant Lad. As time permits, he will answer some of these inquiries during the course of the webinar. Due to the high volume of questions received, we ask that each participant limit their questions to one per session.
