Western Herbs for Ayurvedic Practitioners

March 25, 2019 with Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa, A.D., D.N.-C., R.H.

Are you a well-educated Ayurvedic practitioner who uses Ayurvedic herbs, but would like to extend your skill set to include Western herbs?

These days, most Ayurvedic students learn at least a little about Ayurvedic herbs in Ayurveda school. What they don’t learn, though, is anything about Western herbs. We will deeply discuss the similarities and differences between Western and Ayurvedic herbalism and how to connect the knowledge you already have with an understanding of effective Western herbs in your clinic or practice.

If you are ready to take your herbal knowledge to the next level and use all those unfamiliar herbs your clients are bringing in, let’s get together and spend this class in the realm of Western herbs for Ayurvedic practitioners.
