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.

Our Course Material

All of my course material is original and has been revised and updated completely as of May 2014. This material is now available in book form as January 2015. See the links to Amazon below. I brought a new textbook in January 2016; see below for Vol. 5. New plant monographs, new formulas, treatments of over several hundreds of diseases for all ages; from fetus to old age. I hope I live long enough to write down what I have learned in the 29 years of clinical practice - makes a good scratch in clinical protocols and treatments. Still so much more to share! Don’t worry, the next book is in the works already, just need a few years to get the data written up.

My course lessons are based on the classics of Ayurveda - Aṣṭhāñga Hṛdayam and Caraka Samhitā.

All other material has been prepared over the last 16 years by myself (Vaidya Atreya Smith) during the time I have taught at my schools in Bristol, England; Zurich, Switzerland; and Montpellier, France. What makes this material interesting is that I am a practicing Vaidya since 1987. Therefore, the information is practical and usable for Western practitioners. I do not waste time on much of the traditional information taught in India because it either cannot be used in the West or we are not able to use it legally.

All of our textbooks are for sale on Amazon (if your browser blocks advertisements you will not see the images and link below):

Application of Ayurvedic Treatments Throughout Life (Volume 5)

Dravyaguna for Westerners (Volume 4)

Clinical Protocols and Treatments in Ayurveda (Volume 3)

Pathology & Diagnosis in Ayurveda (Volume 2)

Anatomy and Physiology in Ayurveda (Volume 1)

I hope this helps you see that I am a professional and clear in my teaching and that I enjoy the challenge to create new texts and material for my students.

Overall the E-Learning program has more than 1200 A4 size (like Letter size) pages of material available to students.

In our Clinical Study Program with Dr Sunil Joshi everything is verbally taught directly from the Caraka Samhitā. He is a dynamic and exceptional teacher whom my students from Europe have been enjoying since 2006.

Update 26 August 2013

I just want to add that we have now organized 8 clinical programs with Dr Joshi and they continue to improve. The student satisfaction level for the last course was 95%. Atreya

Update 30 May 2014

I spent the last 10 months re-writing the whole course material as well as the Quiz questions. The result will published in several books in the next two months for all Western students of Ayurveda to benefit from this information.

Updated 21 May 2015

All the course material has been published after a long edit. We are still editing out minor errors. If you do not have the money to do the e-learning course with me you can buy the textbooks and study alone. Hari Om
