Online "Basic course in Ayurvedic Nutrition" Background:

AYURVEDA means "The Science of Life" and is the oldest and most comprehensive system of medicine invented for mankind. It is believed to have originated in 2500 B.C. Actually Ayurveda is rather a way of living to keep one in harmony with nature. It contains profound knowledge of maintaining good health, curing of disease and achieving a harmonious balance of body, mind and spirit. Central to this healing science is the doctrine of Tri- dosha (the vital energies of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) and the connection with the Pancha Maha Bhootha (the five elements - ether, air, and fire water and earth.)

Ayurveda teaches a way of life that enables us to be centred and focus on the healing that comes from within

online course in Ayurvedic NutritionNutrition is the most important because from proper wholesome and balanced diet all the body constituents- dosha, dhatu and mala are formed. That is why it is said that 'we are what we eat'. Food is not only essential for our physical well being but it provides nutrition for our mind as well.

What we eat influences not only on our physical activities but on the psychological also. The digestive fire requires food to keep it constantly active. Improper food can extinguish this fire and produce toxic substance called as ama. Hence food and digestive fire are interdependent on each other.

Ayurveda has given lot of importance to Eight factors in dietetics, which are called as 'ashtavidha smskara'.

Ayurveda teaches you to recognize your self - your constitution, so that you can have the correct food, herbs and exercises for improving health and preventing diseases.

If these rules and laws are taught to others, Ayurveda- science of healing will be useful to every one.

This course provides a clear understanding of the fundamental principles of Ayurvedic Nutrition including the Energetic Principals, Food items and their metabolism.
