What is Living Wisdom?
I am a Medical Herbalist and an Ayurvedic Practitioner and as one of the few Ayurvedic practitioners in the UK I have seen the ever-increasing popularity of Yoga raise awareness of its sister science, Ayurveda. With its emphasis on preventative health, healing and promotion of longevity, Ayurveda is more than a system of medicine, it is a way of life that aims to enhance well-being through the union of physical, emotional and spiritual health.
Feedback from my books ‘The Ayurveda Bible’ and ‘Dispensing with Tradition’, made me realise that there was a need for an easily accessible, yet in-depth, introduction to Ayurveda. So, I collaborated with my friend and American polarity therapist, Gina Mastroluca, and in 2015 we launched our online course Living Wisdom: The Foundations of Ayurveda – www.learnlivingayurveda.com.
Living Wisdom offers a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practices of Ayurveda based on my extensive experience presenting Eastern philosophy in an accessible way for the Western mind. The course has been carefully structured to appeal to a range of people including yoga teachers, herbal practitioners, nutritional therapists and medical professionals, while still being accessible to everyone interested in improving their health and wellbeing. Covering 700 pages of Ayurvedic nutrition, herbal medicine, sattvic lifestyle and meditation practices over eight online modules, students will have access to online student forums, plus optional seasonal workshops to support their studies and journey through the course.
The course is only £395 for access to all eight modules for 18 months. For more information please call the clinic on 01451 810096.
Hay fever season is in full swing and anyone who suffers knows how miserable hay fever can be. Here’s a handy homemade remedy that can help to ease the symptoms…
This mix contains echinacea, chamomile and lemon balm to soothe the allergic response that sparks off symptoms, while agrimony and ground ivy calm any inflammation, drying up secretions.
Ingredients (makes enough to fill a 500ml (17 fl oz) jar)
400ml (14 fl oz) plant glycerol
100ml (3.5 fl oz) alcohol (vodka or brandy)
250g (9 oz) each fresh or 100g (3.5 oz) dried agrimony, chamomile, Echinacea, lemon balm and ground ivy
How to make
First mix the glycerol and alcohol together, then place the herbs in a wide-necked jar and pour the mixture over the herbs.
Leave to macerate for at least 2-3 weeks, stirring daily, and then strain through a fine mesh sieve or muslin, or press using a wine press, making sure that you squeeze as much liquid from the herbs as possible.
Pour into dark, sterilized bottles, label carefully and store in a cool, dark place.
How to use
Take a teaspoon 3-6 times daily in a little water, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
