The doctors will help participants know more about these plants and teach them how they can use these plants to prevent and cure diseases on their own.
Participants also get a chance to win a scholarship for a short course on Ayurveda. This will be conducted from December 1 to 10, 2011 by the guest doctors from India. Cooking demos of healthy Ayurveda foods, as well as Yoga sessions are part of the weekend program. Ayurveda, which translates to “the science of life”, dates back more than 5,000 years in ancient India. It is a non-invasive and holistic medicinal approach that is ideal for Pinoys who want to live a full, healthy, and well-balanced life. Combined with yoga, which focuses on keeping an individual’s energy in balance, Ayurveda can help people achieve total wellness and be on the path to holistic health.
