What you will learn

  • Course Summary

  • When macronutrients or micronutrients are abnormally metabolized, metabolic toxins are generated which trigger inflammation. These toxins also interfere with normal tissue metabolism and immune function. In Ayurveda, the term AGNI represents metabolic activity at various levels in the body; the gut is the primary site of metabolism. Disturbance in the psycho-emotional balance or gut-governing factors can result in the production of metabolic toxins. In Ayurveda, a patient-centered approach is adapted to customize diet, herbs, supplements, lifestyle modifications, yoga and detoxification protocols. Prevention and management of inflammatory pathologies are accomplished with various detoxification procedures such as PANCHAKARMA. A practitioner can administer these protocols seasonally to prevent inflammation and inflammatory pathologies. This presentation systematically discusses and enumerates Ayurvedic protocols for management of inflammatory pathologies, including evidence-based clinical case presentation of selected pathologies.

    • Describe the Ayurvedic concept of inflammation
