About the Course

"Without wholesome food, medicine will not work; with wholesome food, there is no need for medicine"

Paraphrased, from Vaidya Jivana by Lolimbraja, (16-17th Century AD)

Globally, there is an increase in non-communicable diseases and diet is an important risk factor in several of these. With increasing lifespan, there is also a desire to live a quality life, for which Ayurveda contains detailed advice. Despite overwhelming evidence, from clinical observations to scientific trials, regarding foods and diets to lead a healthy disease-free life, training for clinicians in diet design and counselling remains woefully inadequate.

  • This course is an introductory level offering to help clinicians combine aspects of nutrition, food science, Ayurveda, physiology, public health and dietetic sciences to better serve their patients.

  • For those interested in public health, it will help you see to the scope of nutrition for population level well being, especially traditional food concepts.

  • We will use research articles and new published studies to understand the evidence for select dietary guidelines. This will help gain confidence in reading papers in nutrition science.

  • The course will point you to web resources that will help with life long learning that you can use in your practice.
