Part 3: 6 States of Disease

Disease in the body typically progresses progressively over time. It is known as ‘samprapti' in Sanskrit, which translates as ‘the birth of suffering.'

Module 6: Ayurveda Early Symptom Detection

In Western parlance, the term "diagnosis" refers to the detection of illness after it has completely manifested and the "symptoms" are visible. However, in Ayurveda, the term "diagnosis" refers to the ongoing control of the body's ever-changing relationship between "health" (order) and "disease" (disorder). The'symptoms' are regarded as a sign of tridosha imbalance. As a result, if the 'nature' of the imbalance is identified, balance can be restored by the appropriate 'treatment.'

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Tongue Diagnosis

Part 3: Doshas and Diet

The ideal diet for a person's dosha will be determined by their simple constitutional form (vatta-pitta-kapha). It is the supreme test of the adage that "one man's meat is another man's poison," as what is beneficial to a kapha dosha can be harmful to a pitta dominant human. As a result, it is critical to adapt a person's diet to their relevant dosha constitution.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • VATA Dosha Food Choices
  • VATA Foods (Fruits)
  • VATA Foods (Vegetables)

Pittas may have voracious appetites and must be careful not to overindulge in one sitting. Normal sweet, salty, and astringent foods can be eaten to maintain a healthy constitution.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • PITTA Foods (Fruits)
  • PITTA Foods (Vegetables)
  • PITTA Foods (Grains)
  • PITTA Foods (Animal Foods)

Part 5: KAPHA Dosha Food Choices

Smooth, gentle, cold, stable, wet, thick, and sticky are qualities associated with the Kapha dosha. Kaphas are naturally solid and well-built. As a result, they should restrict high-calorie meals. Try to stick to lower-calorie options. Sunflower and corn oil are ‘good' oils for kaphas since they are mildly heating. Ghee (clarified butter) should be used sparingly, but it can be beneficial in increasing a person's ‘agni’.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • KAPHA Foods (Fruits)
  • KAPHA Foods (Vegetables)
  • KAPHA Foods (Grains)
  • KAPHA Foods (Animal Foods)
  • Fasting
  • Vitamins

Module 9: Ayurveda & Taste

Part 1: 6 Essential Flavours: RASA

This 'connection' between a person's senses is especially significant in Ayurveda. It emphasizes that 'taste' is much more than what happens on the palate. The definition of 'taste' incorporates a person's sense of scent, texture, and emotional state. According to Ayurveda, all of the senses respond to food, and "flavors" are part of a very sophisticated mechanism that produces chemical and emotional substances.

Part 3: 6 States of Disease

Disease in the body typically progresses progressively over time. It is known as ‘samprapti' in Sanskrit, which translates as ‘the birth of suffering.' The influence of Ayurveda is evident in its capacity to cure disease at any point. Because of the causative causes, such as consuming a poor diet or eating inappropriate foods, each illness takes a specific path.

  • #5. Manifestation: Symptoms Appear (Vyakti)
  • #6. Diversification/Specification: Complications (Bheda)
  • Lifestyle and Health
  • Inner Wisdom

Module 6: Ayurveda Early Symptom Detection

In Western parlance, the term "diagnosis" refers to the detection of illness after it has completely manifested and the "symptoms" are visible. However, in Ayurveda, the term "diagnosis" refers to the ongoing control of the body's ever-changing relationship between "health" (order) and "disease" (disorder). The'symptoms' are regarded as a sign of tridosha imbalance. As a result, if the 'nature' of the imbalance is identified, balance can be restored by the appropriate 'treatment.'

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Radial Pulse
  • The Meridians (and the 5 Basic Elements)
  • Tongue Diagnosis
  • Facial Diagnosis
  • Lip Diagnosis
  • Nail Diagnosis
  • Eye Diagnosis

Module 8: Ayurvedic Diet & Optimal Health

Part 3: Doshas and Diet

The ideal diet for a person's dosha will be determined by their simple constitutional form (vatta-pitta-kapha). It is the supreme test of the adage that "one man's meat is another man's poison," as what is beneficial to a kapha dosha can be harmful to a pitta dominant human. As a result, it is critical to adapt a person's diet to their relevant dosha constitution.

Topics to be discussed include:

Pitta dosha constitution have qualities such as lightness, liquidity, sharpness, heat, and a mild oiliness. Pitta doshas benefit from foods that are nourishing, refreshing, and sweet. Pittas may have voracious appetites and must be careful not to overindulge in one sitting. Normal sweet, salty, and astringent foods can be eaten to maintain a healthy constitution.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • PITTA Foods (Fruits)
  • PITTA Foods (Vegetables)
  • PITTA Foods (Grains)
  • PITTA Foods (Animal Foods)

Part 5: KAPHA Dosha Food Choices

Smooth, gentle, cold, stable, wet, thick, and sticky are qualities associated with the Kapha dosha. Kaphas are naturally solid and well-built. As a result, they should restrict high-calorie meals. Try to stick to lower-calorie options. Sunflower and corn oil are ‘good' oils for kaphas since they are mildly heating. Ghee (clarified butter) should be used sparingly, but it can be beneficial in increasing a person's ‘agni’.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • KAPHA Foods (Fruits)
  • KAPHA Foods (Vegetables)
  • KAPHA Foods (Grains)
  • KAPHA Foods (Animal Foods)
  • Fasting
  • Vitamins

Module 9: Ayurveda & Taste
