The California College of Ayurveda is pleased to introduce the Ayurvedic Health Practitioner Interns 2014. Interns have completed their academic studies and work under the supervision of experienced clinical instructors. This semester’s talented group of interns comes from throughout the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.
Ayurvedic Health Practitioner (AHP) interns work on supporting patients to adopt a healthy lifestyle that is in harmony with their constitution. Patients learn about their constitution as well as the nature of any imbalances. They will also receive support to adjust their diet and lifestyle accordingly and to normalize your digestion and elimination. As part of the Ayurvedic program, an intern can include ayurvedic herbs, aromatherapy, color therapy, sound and mantra, and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy. This is is the best of preventative health care! For those who have a specific condition and are looking for clinical management through Ayurvedic Medicine, they should consider having a consultation with an Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist intern or graduate.
Interview with Candace from Ohio
1) What inspired you to study Ayurvedic Medicine?
I was first introduced to Ayurveda in 2007 at my yoga teacher training. It was not until many years later after a car accident in 2014 that I began my studies. I was healing my body with western medication and did not like the side affects. I decided to try Ayurveda as an alternative. I began to feel better and was able to stop taking the medication.
2) What do you think makes Ayurveda attractive to the public?
Ayurveda makes perfect sense. It is simple, practical, profound and natural. Ayurveda helps you understand yourself better. It holds you accountable and responsible for your own healing. The journey into your truest self is empowering!
3) What do you think about the future of Ayurveda in your country?
The future of Ayurveda is bright and beautiful! People are hungry for alternatives to healing themselves. It is a very exciting time for Ayurveda because awareness is shifting to a more natural way of healing ourselves, not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Ayurveda heals on all levels!
4) What is your favorite therapy in this traditional system of medicine from India?
My favorite therapy is yoga. Is has provided structure and strength in my life. It has shown me how to live a more harmonious life with in myself and with the world around me. I also love abhyanga, oils nourish the body and make me feel loved.
