This seminar is oriented to health care providers from all backgrounds. Dr. Lad will lay the foundation for Ayurvedic assessment of disease by discussing evaluation of the three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha), prakruti (constitution), and vikruti (current state of imbalance.), as well as present the means and skills with which you can better address your patient’s disease. Dr. Lad will provide a unique integration of the fundamental Ayurvedic concepts of etiology, pathology, and treatment with the contemporary medical paradigm. This is also an opportunity for you to deepen your understanding of Ayurvedic clinical examination through clinical practicum.
