New 7-Week Live Video Training Starts

Explore an ancient yet proven system for activating whole-being health that harnesses the wisdom of your body’s senses, innate constitution, digestive power, and microbiome to help you metabolize the totality of life including your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical responses in a balanced, enlivening, and optimized way.

 

You may have heard that poor digestion has been linked to all forms of disease.

While most of us are likely aware of how the gut microbiome influences our digestion, immunity, and health, we also tend to look at digestion as a localized event.

The ancient Indian medical system of Ayurveda considers whole-being digestion and our ability to metabolize the totality of life  mind, body, and spirit in a gentle, effective, and coherent way to be the foundation of our health.

In fact, as Ayurvedic doctor Marc Halpern teaches, the digestive system regulates every other system in the body. This allows us to use our digestive systems as a barometer of wellbeing for everything going on inside of us...

... including our physical health, thoughts and emotions, spiritual wellbeing, and sense of inner agency, such as heightened clarity, higher purpose, and connectedness.

In learning how to align with our true body constitution or dosha through nutrition and our daily habits, we can also consciously work with our digestive systems to create our health.

During this thought-provoking course with Dr. Halpern, you’ll explore an ancient yet practical system for activating whole-being health that harnesses the wisdom of your dosha and your body’s digestive power to help you metabolize the totality of life and optimize your health.

As the founder and President of the California College of Ayurveda, the oldest school of Ayurvedic Medicine in the United States, Dr. Halpern is a leader in the development of Ayurvedic Medicine in the West.

During your time with him, he’ll share the most potent Ayurvedic techniques for self-regulating your health by aligning mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically with your dosha.

 
 
 

In this health-enhancing course, you’ll:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of your digestive physiology and the role each digestive organ plays in your ability to metabolize food and life
  • Discover the role doshas play in common digestive imbalances and how aligning with your true dosha can help you balance your digestive system and overall health
  • Explore the six tastes of Ayurveda and the healthy and unhealthy tastes for each dosha
  • Recognize how your Ayurvedic prakruti (constitution) is a living map to your most optimal health state and wellbeing
  • Consider the best daily routines for each dosha that nourish the body and mind and optimize health and wellbeing
  • Elevate your consciousness and reconnect to Spirit
  • Uncover why psychological imbalances are often the root cause of digestive challenges
  • Help restore healthy digestion using common kitchen spices
  • Understand how your gut microbiome functions like an organ and underpins the characteristics of the doshas
  • Identify the foods and meals that help each dosha return to balance, and those that aggravate each dosha and create imbalance
  • Remove blockages to the flow of energy prana (energy) through your subtle body
 
 

Dr. Halpern will share which foods, herbs, spices, and tastes your dosha needs to ignite the health of your gut microbiome and nourish your entire being...

... and the best daily routines and lifestyle instructions for not only keeping your dosha on track for success but restoring balance to your body systems and life.

From there, you can catalyze spiritual growth and expand your consciousness in a more easeful and natural way.

You’ll explore the role your mind plays in forming your experience of health and why physiological imbalances are often the root cause of digestive issues.

Ultimately, you’ll activate whole-being health by cultivating the inborn wisdom of your dosha and digestive system and applying it within the time-tested practices and philosophies of an ancient healing system.

If you’d like to discover how your digestive system and dosha work together to inform your health and help you metabolize food and life, join us.

Dr. Marc Halpern has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I found that he was able to share this knowledge in our sessions in a way that I could understand and easily implement into my life.

Module 1: Use Your Digestive System & Dosha to Trace Your Ailments & Rebalance Your Body Systems (April 19)

 

The digestive system is the root, or core system, of the entire body. If it’s functioning well, the rest of the body has the best chance of remaining healthy.

Too often, however, its physiology is disturbed and the rest of the body slowly begins to suffer.

You’ll explore your digestive physiology and digestive system functions through conventional Western and Ayurvedic perspectives...

... and integrate the knowledge of both disciplines to accurately connect any digestive symptoms or imbalances you may have to the physiology of your body.

Dr. Halpern will also share the deeper functions of gut microbiome, which is significantly more complex and influential on your health than most people realize.

This week, you’ll:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of your digestive physiology and the role each digestive organ plays in your ability to metabolize food and life
  • Explore where Western conventional medicine and Ayurvedic medicine ideas of digestive physiology converge and diverge
  • Understand how your gut microbiome function like an organ and underpin the characteristics of the doshas
  • Discover the role doshas play in common digestive imbalances and how aligning with your true dosha can help you balance your digestive system and overall health
 

Module 2: Align With Your Dosha to Correct Imbalances & Toxicity and Harness the Power of Digestion (April 26)

 

At the heart of Ayurveda lies an understanding of the doshas and how they influence agni the power of digestion.

You’ll explore agni and a variety of classical Ayurvedic concepts this week, including prakruti (constitution), vikruti (disturbed doshas), ama (toxicity), and ojas (endurance)...

... and learn how all disease begins in the digestive system and then spreads to other areas of the body.

As you reflect on your deepest tendencies and patterns nutritional and otherwise you’ll gain a deeper sense of how aligned you are with your dosha and how your body is functioning in relation to that alignment from an Ayurvedic perspective.

You’ll also gain powerful insights on how to restore health digestion, optimum health, and peace of mind as the path to health that is most aligned with your true constitution begins to come into focus.

This week, you’ll explore:

  • How your Ayurvedic prakruti (constitution) is a living map to your most optimal health state and wellbeing
  • How your Ayurvedic vikruti (imbalance) can be used to gauge the quality of your digestive health and illuminate the path to rebalancing your system
  • The deeper role and complexities ofagni, the power of digestion
  • How ama (toxicity) occurs in the digestive system
  • How ojas (endurance) protects your digestive system and your entire body and mind
 

Module 3: Choose Health-Supporting Tastes & Foods to Prevent Imbalance, Harmonize Your Physiology & Optimize Your Digestive Health (May 3)

 

Our experience of life is a combination of our inborn tendencies and the choices we make.

You’ll learn how your choices impact the physiology of your body from an Ayurvedic perspective.

You’ll begin by exploring the six tastes, which include the same five elements of the doshas space, fire, air, water, earth and the role they play in supporting and repairing your health.

Dr. Halpern will share how each taste can be beneficial or lead to imbalance, depending on your dosha, and offer insights on which foods and spices are beneficial overall to prevent and treat disease.

This week, you’ll:

  • Explore the six tastes of Ayurveda and the healthy and unhealthy tastes for each dosha
  • Discover the foods that help each dosha return to balance and those that aggravate each dosha and create imbalance
  • Gain potent insights and techniques for preparing healthy meals for each dosha
  • Realize how to help restore healthy digestion using common kitchen spices
 

Module 4: Avoid Digestive Upset by Creating a Healthy Daily Routine That Minimizes Stress & Nourishes Your Body and Mind (May 10)

 

In Ayurveda, your lifestyle plays a huge role in the foundation of your health. How you eat and your overall lifestyle around eating is more important than what you eat.

Unhealthy lifestyle choices can lead to physical and emotional stress that upset digestion, the balance of your entire physiology, and potentially, your health.

You’ll explore healthy daily routines that nourish your body and mind from the time you wake up until you go to bed. This includes how you relate to and consume your food.

Dr. Halpern will share healthy eating guidelines and explore common work-life balance issues that arise and how to mitigate them from Ayurvedic and yogic perspectives.

  • Discover why how you eat is more important to your overall health than what you eat
  • Explore the best daily routines for each dosha that nourish the body and mind and optimize health and wellbeing
  • Consider how to mitigate work-life balance issues that commonly interfere with maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Gain deeper insights on how physical and emotional stress upset digestion and the balance of your entire physiology
 

Module 5: Calm & Balance Your Mind to Restore the Health of Your Body Systems & Spirit (May 17)

 

Disease moves from the subtle (the mind) to the gross (the body). If the mind is not at peace, the body’s physiology will be disturbed. In Ayurveda, the first place that disturbance is felt is within the digestive system.

Dr. Halpern will guide you through the healing and hampering mechanisms of the mind from Ayurvedic and yogic perspectives and how the doshas affect not only digestion, but the mind as well.

You’ll learn why restoring balance throughout the body requires a holistic approach what you eat, how you eat, and your ability to bring the mind back to a state of peacefulness...

And you’ll explore key concepts for keeping your mind healthy and your physiology in a balanced state.

  • Explore how to elevate your mind to its highest potential
 

Module 6: Establish a Solid Spiritual Foundation to Prevent Mental & Physical Turmoil and Fortify Your Overall Wellbeing (May 31)

 

According to Ayurveda and yoga, disease begins when we lose our spiritual connectedness, resulting in a ripple of internal disturbances that begin in the mind and move throughout the physiology of the body.

The first place affected in your physiology is the digestive system. A strong spiritual foundation is therefore necessary for a peaceful mind and a healthy body.

You’ll explore how to establish a solid spiritual foundation that supports optimal health and peace of mind. And be encouraged to find your own unique relationship with the Divine, in any form or tradition that resonates with you.

Dr. Halpern will also share many aspects of yoga and practical suggestions to enhance your connectedness to the greater whole of life.

This week, you’ll:

  • Explore how the four traditional paths of yoga are a guide to optimal health

Yoga nidra is a traditional technique utilized to calm the body and mind, establish a healthy flow of life energy, enhance healing, and support creating the experience of reality that you desire. This process of creation is called sankalpa.

Dr. Halpern will guide you through a yoga nidra meditation that focuses on creating the experience of optimum digestion.

You’ll then have an opportunity to share your experiences and ask Dr. Halpern any final questions.

This week, you’ll explore:

  • The meaning and implementation of sankalpa (creating your experience of reality) and how it relates to healthy and optimized digestion
  • How you create and live your own experience of reality, including the way that you metabolize food and life
  • How to remove blockages to the flow of energy prana (energy) through your subtle body
