About the Event

This event will expand on Ayurveda’s role in managing both the physical and mental effects of COVID.

While it has been practiced continuously for 5000 years in India, its emergence in the USA is recent, and

has become more popular in the past months, since India with its population of 1.3b people has nicely

survived during the pandemic. Ayurveda provides tools for prevention from its immense herbal

pharmacopoeia and its philosophy of understanding and treating disease. Legally recognized and

practiced as a medical system in South Asia, Ayurveda provides tools with plenty of human clinical data

showing that there is indeed a scientific basis that helps people build their immunity and recover from

illness during a pandemic. We will discuss practical tools, how to strengthen our mental health, and how

to ground ourselves for the coming seasons.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe how to implement 5 non-pharmaceutical tools for strengthening mental health.

2. Discuss 5 herbal formulations for building immunity.

3. Locate 5 practical ways to recover from illness during this post-acute phase of the pandemic.
