Diploma course: Nutrition Module I (60 contact hours)
This course is for those who wants to know what ayurvedic nutrition can mean for them in a modern western life. Going deeply into the basics of classical ayurvedic nutrition, this course translates this ancient knowledge into whatever is needed here and now in the west. This is a unique feature of this course: modern nutrition has gone haywire and presents a lot of difficult issues. Many of these issues will be addressed in this course from a modern ayurvedic perspective. The purpose of this course is to offer an in depth training in Ayurvedic nutrition.
This course has originally been developed by Atreya Smith to train practitioners according to the Medical Association of Switzerland where he taught clinical ayurvedic nutrition to doctors and other medical practitioners. Hence, the orientation of this course is also to actually train professionals to use and become proficient in traditional nutritional medicine.
There are five written exams and one written case study required by the student. On completion a diploma of 180 study hours (60 contact hours) in Ayurvedic Clinical Studies will be awarded as ‘Ayurvedic Nutritional Advisor’.
If this is your initial course in this or in the Ayurveda field we strongly advise you to continue with more studies before actually starting professional advices. In this case the course does suffice - however - to give advice to friends and family.
Continuation on Module I:
This course is meant as a practice-oriented follow-up for Nutrition Course I. The course is specifically dealing with practical case histories. More ayurvedic physiology will be taken into the discussion of the case studies at hand. Also advanced nutritional knowledge, such as nutrition for each of the Dhatus, will be taken into account. The course will also deal with nutrition as part of the treatment of certain diseases, such as initiated in Book 5 of Atreya Smith's material used in Nutrition Course I. Read more...
