The Ayurvedic Health Practitioner (AHP) interns work on supporting their patients to adopt a healthy lifestyle that is in harmony with their constitution. When a patient sees an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, they will learn your constitution as well as the nature of any imbalances. They will also receive support to adjust your diet and lifestyle accordingly and to normalize your digestion and elimination. As part of the program, an intern can include ayurvedic herbal medicines, aromatherapy, color therapy, sound and mantra, and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy. This is the best of preventative health care. If a person has a specific condition and is looking for clinical management through Ayurvedic Medicine, they should consider having a consultation with a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist intern or graduate.

"Ayurveda was a remedy to a life of imbalance. I walked away from a successful career in technology ten years ago. After years of shcmoozing with zany technologists, government agents, Chicago stock-brokers and a nearly-endless bevy of unhealthy, unfulfilled co-workers, I decided that the corporate patriarchy was slowly sucking the soul-marrow out of my bones. I had a hunger to know myself. I watched as people who had full tanks of cash, cars, designer clothes and power, slowly drowned their minds in alcohol, drugs and other pain killers. It was more than my heart could watch.
I wanted to know my life’s purpose -something that all of the money, beautiful power-elite friends and my current understanding of the world would never satisfy. I wanted to live a life of fullness - the kind of life that continually allowed my heart to open - whether it was breaking from sadness or bursting with awe. I wanted to live in integrity with my own version of God. And I wanted to heal my own body and mind.
I felt that the body was a wise, spirit-infused animal, intimately connected to Nature and her rhythms. When I first heard of Ayurveda, I understood immediately that there was an entire life-science affirming what my inner intuition was whispering. From then onward, I was a student, and will continue to dive into Ayurveda’s wisdom and mystery as long as I live."
