FREE Webinar

Introduction to Ayurvedic Detoxification: Treating Diseases Caused by Amavata
Date: Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM PDT

Free and open to the public! Are you looking to eradicate the root of chronic disease for your clients or for yourself? The East Indian Ayurvedic tradition considers amavata, or deep level toxicity, to be the seat of chronic disease. Join Todd Caldecott, clinical herbalist and author of Ayurveda: The Divine Science of Life and Dr. Alan Tillotson, Ph.D., clinical herbalist, licensed acupuncturist and author of The One Earth Herbal Sourcebook, for a discussion about how you can integrate Ayurvedic herbal, dietary, and detoxification methods into your approach to resolving chronic disease.

This webinar is hosted by Michael Tierra and the East West School of Planetary Herbology, and is appropriate for students and practitioners of herbalism.

Space is limited.
