About the Course:
This Course is written by Traditional Practitioner - Veda Kovid and Yoga and Ayurveda Teacher Durgadas, who has studied the traditional system of Ashtavaidya Keraliya Ayurvedaincluding the deeper sides of Clinical Ayurveda, Ayurvedic Pharmacy and Astrology and is a study-guide of his books. He was grown up in a traditional Brahmin Vedic lineage spanning several generations and is a student of Dr. David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri), the noted author and authority on Traditional and Spiritual Ayurveda and Vedic teachings. You can read about Durgadas HERE.
There are now several online courses in Ayurveda. However, few are sympathetic to the clinical side of Ayurveda and also tradition.

This course contains much information on deeper aspects like Mantra-Yoga, intricities of Karma and Karmic diseases as well as the use of herbs and healing various Nervous System Disorders that is not seen elsewhere in other Ayurvedic courses, neither in the West nor in India. Much of this is due to Durgadas's deep study and expansion of the traditional classical texts and traditions that is commonly ignored in the modern world.
