Let's Learn AyurvedA

Have you had an opportunity to learn about Ayurveda and felt an invitation to learn more? Perhaps even a notion that the concepts felt familiar?

That happened for me too. And now I have created an experience of Ayurveda, oriented for clinicians who are busy in their practice who would like to feel revitalized and learn about this ancient healing system without taking a long break from working.

Practical Tools to Apply Ayurveda in Your Life

Cultivating health and vitality in your body supports the work you feel called to do in this world.

Ayurveda is a system of principles derived from insight over thousands of years of observation of how humans get sick, healed and live fulfilled lives. ,

So much more than nutritional recommendations like golden milk (though valuable), it offers a window of insight into our connection between our interior world and exterior influences. 

Continue your journey of life-long learning, and benefit both personally and professionally as you incorporate the principles of Ayurveda in this unique experience. 

Next class starts spring 2021

Join Us

Join this community of clinicians who are on a path to depth in the creation of health. Through cultivating both personal health and professional health, we are finding our niche in medicine outside of the pathways that were defined for us. 

By learning these principles, we can reach new areas of understanding on how self-healing begins though experiential and introductory lectures in Ayurveda. The contributors to this pathway are guiding a new generation of healers to rise in themselves to serve those who need healing.

Nutrient Vitality

With COVID 19, physicians are experiencing unprecedented challenges in their practices. And this is in the setting where there was already a concern of increased stress.  Clinicians feel constrained by time and not being able to offer the care that they know would best serve patients.

Now is the time to search out and use the timeless principles in Ayurveda that can sustain and support resilience and vitality. And  do this in connection to others working through similar issues. 

In this course, it we will look at mindset work as found in Lifestyle Coaching but also how to manage to the status of the doshas and agni to create space for a natural awareness on how to stay healthy and return to health when we are out of balance.

...it's hard to find someone who understands the Journey.

While working in an insurance based medical practices, Dr. Siri Chand began to see how offering lifestyle measures in a group based format could allow for scaling and implementation of valuable knowledge about the pillars of lifestyle medicine that can then be refined within Ayurveda. In this introductory  journey, you are provided with insight about how Ayurveda would tailor lifestyle medicine based on Ayurvedic principles. Tailored just for you in this time and space.

ABOUT

Learning a new medical system takes time

Based on my study Ayurveda while staying current as an Internal Medicine in primary care, I began to understand the ways in which the high yield recommendations offered in Lifestyle Medicine could be refined within Ayurveda to offer focused changes.

All the pillars of Lifestyle Medicine can be supported within Ayurveda are: 
  01: Plant-based eating
  02: 8 hours of restorative sleep
  03: 150 minutes/week moderate exercise 
  04: Meaningful connection with people 
  05: Daily relaxation time to lower stress
  06: Not smoking

I have been so grateful for the wisdom that is offered through these timeless teachings and gathered relevant high yield elements for our time together. I have personally seen that when applying these principles to our own lives, clinicians can have renewed vitality to do the work we feel called to do

ABOUT

I've lived the problems & I've lived the solutions

I was first introduced to Ayurvedic principles while in college in 1991 when I developed health challenges. The invitation to learn in more depth has continued since then and I am daily grateful. At that time, the principles held within this healing pathway sustained my life in such a powerful way that I even began to question my decision to become an allopathic doctor. 

Ultimately I decided to get a Master’s Degree and go through allopathic training however not before I had investigated other options in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Naturopathy and Ayurveda. As I searched the schools at that time, I realized that adding the depth of modern science would only enhance my understanding of these ancient principles. 

I completed a residency at Mayo Clinic in Internal Medicine in 2005 and moved to the southwest of the United States to learn from leaders in the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. Contributing as a guest lecturer in the fellowship enhanced my understanding of the unique depth and issues that Integrative Medicine providers have. 

After working primarily in Hospice and Palliative Medicine I left my allopathic clinical practice from 2011-2015 to study Ayurveda with Dr. Vasant Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque NM and at his Pune, India education center. After gaining board certification in Integrative Medicine I worked in an insurance based integrative primary care practice and left in 2018 to work on creating a lifestyle and culinary medicine clinical center of excellence. 

Enter COVID and plans have changed. After getting several ill with influenza A and pneumonia in early February, 2020, I doubled down on my Ayurvedic self care program and found such wealth of infomration again around creating and maintaining vitality that I decided to be open to mentoring others physicians interested in learning. And that’s how we got here together. Now. In this time.
