Ayurvedic medicine has been refining itself for over 3000 years. As a result, the nutritional advancements Ayurveda has made are myriad. In this lecture, Dr. Sodhi will pull from his over 35 years of experience in treating patients with Ayurveda and Naturopathic medicine to enhance and inspire naturopathic doctors who are already using food as medicine with each patient. The doshic system of nutrition will be introduced as well as the modern research, including nutrigenomics and food matrix concepts will be discussed alongside a plethora of case studies. Lastly, attendees will leave able to immediately utilize basic Ayurvedic diagnostics and pathophysiology to consider in tandem with their usual treatment styles.
