Are you intrigued by Ayurvedic Herbalism, but unsure how to get started?
Certain myths can make Ayurveda seem more complex than it needs to be...
Don’t let these myths deter you from receiving the benefits of this powerful system for healing, which is utilized by more than a billion people around the world (and is more than 5000 years old).
You don’t need to understand Sanskrit, perform complex spiritual rituals, or work for months (or years!) with an Ayurvedic practitioner or teacher.
Ayurveda is actually totally accessible (and practical), giving you simple and effective remedies to address anxiety, stress, hormones, improve your mental clarity, and more...
If you notice for example, that you have trouble focusing mentally, or you often forget where you’ve put your car keys (or forget people’s names!), certain Ayurvedic remedies address “brain aging,” and can help sharpen your mind.
Ayurveda also offers a holistic approach for healing and preventing inflammation, the underlying cause of a number of illnesses and conditions — from autoimmune disorders to digestive issues to rheumatoid arthritis to cancer.
Ayurveda is the oldest continuing form of medicine, predating all other approaches. It places emphasis on the ability of the human body to heal itself, with the assistance and support of herbal remedies and medicinal foods.
In Ayurveda, “food is medicine and medicine is food.” Many, many Ayurvedic herbs and preparations are easy to integrate into your diet and daily routines...
K.P. Khalsa, one of the world’s experts in herbalism, has a grounded, practical, systematic approach, allowing you to easily prepare and apply — with the right dosages for your body — Ayurvedic remedies to balance your body’s three primary metabolic forces known as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
And if you’re trying to eat and live “clean,” K.P. can guide you in choosing the right remedies and recipes to help deep-clean your tissues.
You can also apply Ayurvedic herbs for “external” healing, using daily remedies for clear and luminous skin and healthier, stronger hair.
Since ancient times, the herbs of Mother Earth have been used to heal and soothe. Safe and natural, yet powerfully effective, here are some of the valuable Ayurvedic herbal remedies, which K.P. will show you how to apply — and that offer you unlimited potential for improved health and wellbeing.
Guggul is a deep detoxifying tissue cleanser as well as a potent anti-inflammatory for joint and cardiovascular health
Gokshura is Ayurveda’s go-to urinary system remedy for soothing the bladder and preventing urinary tract infection. It is also a famous herb for the mind that promotes mental clarity and optimizes sexual function.
Neem, is a potent anti-inflammatory remedy also is used for detoxification, digestion, and healing colds and flus. The herb has so many medicinal benefits that it’s called the “village pharmacy.”
Asafoetida: a powerful remedy that helps deep-clean your tissues.
Shatavari has many applications, including anti-aging and treatment of menopausal symptoms. In Ayurvedic medicine, the roots of the plant are used, following a regimen of processing and drying.
Gotu Kola is used for fatigue, anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and improving memory and intelligence.
Ginger is used for fatigue, anxiety, depression, psychiatric disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, and improving memory and intelligence.
Aloe is a healing herb for skin burns and also internal inflammation.
Guduchi can clear your mind and increase your mental focus.
Arjuna if you have digestive issues, Arjuna can help.
This course is intensely practical, avoiding the mysticism and deep theory of many Ayurveda teachings. Instead, you’ll receive you tools and guidance so you can apply herbs safely and effectively, for years to come.
So you can better connect with K.P. and his teachings, all of his sessions will be live streamed on video. This video connection will be easy to use and will enhance the impact of his teaching. Or, you can easily connect via audio, either through the Internet or your phone.

Translated from Sanskrit as “the science of life,”Ayurveda is a huge collection of holistic practices that oversee literally every aspect of a person’s health and lifestyle. Ayurveda places particular emphasis on the science of longevity, of course focusing on promoting good health throughout that lengthened life.
Ayurveda looks to create a balance between body, mind, emotion, spirit and environment, and places emphasis on the ability of the human body to heal itself, with the assistance and support of a variety of nontoxic therapies, including herbal medicines, but also medicinal foods and dietary programs.

Eating “clean” is the new buzzword. Sounds good, but how exactly do we do it? Does everyone have to do it the same way? And, what exactly is “clean?” More than 80,000 chemicals are currently used in the United States, most of which haven’t been adequately tested for their effects on human health.
They are in your food, your clothes, your air and your house. What is your strategy for keeping them out of your body, and, if they have sneaked in, which they do, how do we get them out? Smart, evolving people want to get clean and stay clean. Let’s take detox past the realm of smoothies and sugar-free diets. Join us for some cutting-edge natural Ayurvedic herbs to dig deep into your tissues and dump the garbage.
Ayurveda says it starts with an optimal digestive system. Learn tactics to shop for, prepare and think about Ayurvedic herbs to get clean and stay clean. Along the way we will dig into treating some common digestive issues, including heartburn and constipation.

Inflammation is your body’s natural short-term response to damage, so it’s a normal, healthy process. Long-term inflammation, though, is another matter, and it can be destructive and cause a whole family of problems including circulation issues, digestive problems, allergies, and food sensitivities. Further, these problems can be exacerbated by fatigue, stress, and improper diet and nutrition. You’ve become a hot mess.
Ayurveda has talked about inflammation for thousands of years, and has devised a holistic way to recognize and conquer this issue. We’ll dig into what causes inflammation and how to control it fast, before it becomes a crisis. Herbs can stop inflammation in its tracks. Learn how to tackle this hot monster and detour around inflammation before it derails your future.

Herbs covered in this session include Turmeric, Aloe, and Neem.
A normal inflammatory response gone into overdrive is a big problem. This reaction can take many forms, but the inflammatory reaction is the seed for most chronic disorders, from heart disease to dementia.
Usually this healthy and normal reaction rids the body of temporary threats. What is not normal is when the body escalates this type of response to “chronic subclinical inflammation”. The body considers itself vulnerable to attack, and prepares to launch a defense against any perceived invader at a moment’s notice.
Fortunately, the ancient Ayurvedic sages recognized this threat and created herbal options. We’ll study a lifelong program to avert inflammation, reduce organ damage, and ensure a healthy old age.
In this session, you’ll discover:
Herbs covered in this session include Guggul, Kutki, and Arjuna.
Forgetting the occasional name or losing your car keys? It’s every baby boomer’s nightmare, and it may be annoying, but it’s pretty common. Forgetting a friend’s name, but also how you know the person, can signal something much more serious.
Maybe for you it’s just a little glitch in concentration, or you feel like your personal hard drive is full. Wouldn’t you rather have a razor sharp mind? Lucky for you, Ayurveda specializes in preventing brain aging. We’ll take a deep dive into clarity, focus, memory and concentration. Learn how to keep your marbles and sharpen, not just your wit, but also what used to be your rapier-like memory.
Remedies covered in this session include Shankpushpi, Guduchi, and Castor oil.

The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
