About this course

The Ayurvedic approach to using herbs is quite different to the Western approach and a great deal can be learnt by applying these very old and tested principles. Ayurveda does not focus on “biochemical components” and isolating “active chemicals” from plants.  This approach is considered to ignore the plant’s capacity to work on the conscious intelligence of our body. 

Ayurveda takes a much more holistic view of a plant's abilities and how to use them to very good effect. Mona will take you through the age-old principles used and refined by Ayurvedic clinicians for centuries and shows you a new way to apply many of the herbs you currently use and resources to some new ones. Join her for this valuable exploration of Ayurvedic herbology.

  • Clear protocol explanations from some of the world's top practitioners
