Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician, will present the theoretical principles of Ayurvedic herbalism as they apply to the health and vitality of specific systems in the body. Practitioners will gain greater knowledge in how to specifically target the health and wellness of a client in cases involving the blood channel (rakta vahasrotas), the muscle channel (mamsa vahasrotas), and the fat channel (meda 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) Note: the first installment of this series, Ayurvedic Herbology with Special Reference to Specific Pathology, was taught May 4-6, 2012, covering rasa, prana, anna, and udaka vaha srotas.
