“Pain is a universal symptom from which many people desperately seek relief. Ayurveda views pain as the body’s method of prompting self-awareness, by communicating that something is wrong and needs attending to. It is the language of the body.”
“Everything is medicine but we should know how to use it.”
Vasant Lad, MASc
First aid therapy in Ayurveda is called sadyah phaladai chikitsa or “that which is instantly fruit-giving.” Whether it is a headache, backache, painful menstruation, common cold, bug bite, allergy, nosebleed or other non-emergency* situation, Ayurveda provides natural, safe, and effective remedies for common disorders, with many ingredients no farther than your kitchen!
Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, will show you how simple household staples like cilantro, turmeric, ginger and honey along with herbal teas, essential oils, meditation and yoga can come to the rescue in times of discomfort and help restore your body to natural order – without side effects.
Your first aid and pain management skills will be further enhanced by learning about and practicing some basic marmani—vital energy points on the body—that can be used on one’s self and others to bring relief from headaches, abdominal pain and more.
