Diet, Inflammation, and Immunity: Modern & Traditional Perspectives

Ayurveda–India’s 4,000-year-old system of medicine–can provide modern healthcare professions with many time-tested, lifestyle-based approaches to mitigate the burden of chronic inflammatory diseases that affect so many of our patients.

In this free webinar, the core faculty members of the Maharishi International University (MIU)–the leading US ayurvedic training center–share their experience applying ayurvedic principles for improving digestion, strengthening immunity, and balancing inflammation.

  • The links between diet, chronic inflammation, and overall health.
  • The fundamental principles of the anti-inflammatory diet.
  • Ayurvedic concepts that further illuminate the connections between digestion, immunity, and chronic inflammation.
