Ayurvedic Health Counselor Unit 8: Clinical Applications and Graduation

Welcome to the final unit in your quest to become an Ayurvedic Health Counselor! In this last unit, we will seek to integrate what you have learned through the review of case studies and small group inquiry. This insightful review will help you experience how ayurveda applies ashtavidha pariksha (eightfold examination) to physical and mental symptoms and diseases. You will learn how to apply the tools of diet, lifestyle, herbs, and the practices of yoga to design specific ayurvedic treatment plans.

In this session you will:

  • Continue to integrate and assimilate the ayurvedic tools and concepts you have learned by working with real-life case studies
  • Present your final project with your learning group
  • Use the tools of diet, lifestyle, herbs, and the practices of yoga to design specific ayurvedic treatment plans
  • Consider the code of ethics and professional conduct for Ayurvedic Health Counselors according to NAMA (National Ayurvedic Medical Association)
  • Receive support and tools for developing your personal ayurvedic consultation practice
  • Participate in a graduation ceremony to celebrate your accomplishment

As you prepare to graduate, you will present your final projects within your learning group to continue practice implementing your new skills in the practical application of ayurvedic treatments and concepts for real-world consultations. Prepare to work one on one with clients by discussing the code of ethics and professional conduct for Ayurvedic Health Counselors according to NAMA (National Ayurvedic Medical Association). This unit will culminate with a special graduation ceremony to celebrate the completion of the program!
