Anna Vaha Srotas: Clinical Assessment of the Digestive System

Webinar Taught by Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc March 29 and 30, 2019
Anna Vaha Srotas: Clinical Assessment of the Digestive System
  • What questions should we ask of our clients or ourselves in order to efficiently and accurately assess the state of digestion?
  • How is pulse diagnosis used to assess the energy of anna vaha srotas, the channel of food?
  • What can looking at the lips, teeth, tongue, facial lines, eyes and nails tell us about the state of the GI tract?

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. 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.

Drawing from decades of clinical and academic experience, Vasant Lad will introduce the structure, function, and significance of anna vaha srotas and guide you through an Ayurvedic clinical assessment of this critically important channel of the body.

From the comfort of home, you will have a bird’s eye view of Vasant Lad conducting a traditional Ayurvedic assessment on a client, visually and verbally guiding you through the process in a highly informative yet approachable style of teaching. 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.
