Ayurvedic diet : an individual approach

Ayurveda has always had an individualized approach to nutrition. Fine out how you structure your diet to fit your constitution. One of the fundamental ideas in Ayurveda is that your body is intelligent and seeks health if you support it through good habits. Additionally, health is defined as a dynamic state – not just the absence of disease as in modern medicine. The idea in Ayurvedic nutrition is that health can be increased not just maintained through right lifestyle and diet. Thus, an Ayurvedic diet is an individualized approach that brings a dynamic state of being.

look at what other people are offering

We at EIVS feel that we bring the best of India and the West together in the practical clinical application of Ayurveda as well as the most advanced methods of teaching from modern universities in the Western world. If you are looking for a university level program on Ayurveda that is practical rather than intellectually based then our staff fits this requirement. Just look around on the web at other schools and try to match the clinical experience with the modern teaching abilities of our staff - we are knowledgeable, innovative, passionate and exciting teachers. Ask yourself, "why is this school putting up the contacts of their competition?"


If you find that some of the links and schools not longer exist (I posted them in 2010) then you should think about it - my school has been running no-stop since 1998.......

Make sure you compare the price with the number of TEACHING CONTACT hours, not only the total hours. Also note that many people are not listing the costs. See our transparent costs here.

Update 19 July 2011

I have not looked at the schools in the last year to see what people have changed so the above information may not be correct for September 2011. Check it out and see. If you are going to spend thousands of dollars or euros on a course you should compare as many schools as you can. I feel that ours is the best because we train students to practice Ayurveda. So if your goal is to really become a practitioner then you should study with us - at least you will have a good foundation based on Caraka and not New-Age naturopathy with an Indian name :) Atreya

Update 04 January 2012

The main question we get from students who are looking into different schools is about teach contact time. I am very present for our e-learning students. I feel that we offer more quality time with our students than other schools do with a classic structure. We have students all over the world and some cannot be at our live question and answer sessions each week. This has not posed a problem for students as they send us their questions and I answer them in detail even if they are asleep on the other side of the world. Our forum is also an inter-active way for us to work with students and for them to interact with each other. Hope this helps - Atreya

Update 16 September 2015

Hi, I have no idea if this information is still accurate - if the links don’t work most likely the school is dead. What I can say is that I moved to Europe from India in 1994 and opened EIVS to train practitioners in 1998 and I am still doing the same work in 2015. We are now in our 6th year of teaching Ayurveda in the e-learning platform. I love it so much that beginning in September 2016 I will only teach through e-learning. Hari Om! - Atreya
