Ayurvedic Herbalism for Reproductive Health
Below is full lecture outline (Friday lectures are just an Introduction)
There are past seminars, from May 2012, and a May 2013 seminar, which cover the individual srotamsi (bodily channels). This intensive is an in-depth focus on the systems that contribute to reproductive health. Listening to the CDs of the two previous seminars may enhance your learning experience in this intensive. Recordings of these two seminars are available for purchase through our office.
This intensive is an advanced weeklong study of herbs and herbal preparations that affect the srotas influencing the male and female reproductive systems. Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician, will present the theoretical principles of Ayurvedic herbalism as they apply to the health and vitality of the reproductive systems in the body. Practitioners will gain greater knowledge in how to specifically target the health and wellness of a client in cases involving inspiration and the senses (prana vahasrotas), lymph (rasa vahasrotas), the male and female reproductive system (shukra and arthava vahasrotas), the nervous system (majja vahasrotas), and the mind channel (mano vahasrotas). Herbs have their own intelligence. They can change the aggravated dosha and then can unfold cellular intelligence. They enhance the span of life and support rejuvenation. The intelligence of the herbs can be used to stimulate specific systems in the body. Vasant Lad will demonstrate augmenting this intelligence through the use of different preparations and carriers (anupanas).
