Healing the Gut and Boosting Immunity A Deep Dive into How Digestive Health Promotes Immune Health


As Ayurvedic health counselors and practitioners, your clients arrive with an array of digestive imbalances. Ayurveda teaches that disturbances in digestion is a primary root cause of many diseases, and immunity is rooted in digestive wellness. 

Join esteemed Kripalu School of Ayurveda faculty Dr. Anusha Sehgal and expand your clinical knowledge and application in this brand new on campus Ayurveda training. You will

  • Dive into etiology and pathology of digestive imbalances including indigestion (ajirna), peptic ulcer (amlapitta), colic (udara sula), and IBS (grahani)
  • Learn how to guide our clients back to health with medicinal foods, advanced herbal remedies, correct food combinations, and lifestyle practices
  • Discover the direct correlation of a robust digestion supporting a robust immune system
  • Participate in didactic sessions with daily hands-on practicum sessions and fill your Ayurveda toolkit. 

Working intimately with clients to balance digestion can empower them to care for themselves. The end result of digestive health is strong ojas—and a lifetime of resiliency.
