Ayurveda Conference

September 6 @ 8:00 am - September 8 @ 5:00 pm

About the Conference

Autoimmune diseases are some of the leading causes of death among young and middle-aged women in the United States of America. Over 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disorders, and the NIH spends more than 590 million dollars each year on autoimmune disorders alone. Common autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, celiac sprue, vitiligo, scleroderma, IBS, Hashimoto’s, Sjõgren’s, Graves, Type 1 diabetes, pernicious anemia, and others. Metabolic and endocrine disorders are also prevalent among both men and women.  According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), 9.4 % of the US population, an estimated 30.3 million people, suffer from diabetes.  Incidences of metabolic syndrome and obesity are increasing, and an estimated 84.1 million adults have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes.

An Ayurvedic analysis of autoimmune and metabolic disorders reveals compromised tissue metabolism.  Doshas in their imbalanced states disturb the digestive fire, leading to tissue metabolism turbulence, and subsequently, to various types of autoimmune disorders.  Ayurveda observes disease manifestation differently from person to person.  When prana (vital life force), tejas (vital energy), and ojas (vital immunity) are disturbed, this leads to autoimmune and metabolic imbalances.  Ayurveda adopts various methods of healing the body, mind and spirit through natural herbal supplements, dietary guidelines, lifestyle management, yoga asanas, pranayama, meditation, natural physiological detoxification and purification (panchakarma), and rejuvenation (rasayana) therapies.
