Yesterday I was fortunate to get to sit in on a presentation by Reuben Schooler introducing ayurvedic medicine. Ayurvedic medicine (or simply ayurveda) is an ancient Indian practice of medicine. Reuben is a practitioner of ayurvedic medicine, a yogi and registered yoga teacher, and a licensed massage therapist.
Ayurveda is the only currently practiced medical system that may actually pre-date Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. I have been curious to learn more about ayurveda for some time, so I was really excited for this opportunity.
With only a couple of hours to present on thousands of years of medical history Reuben had quite a challenge before him. I thought he did a great job that left me wanting to know more. I came away with a lot of respect for the food-based therapies of ayurveda especially.
Reuben, thank you so much for generously sharing of your time and knowledge.
Readers, if you have a personal experience with ayurvedic medicine I’d love to hear about it. Did it work for you? What was the experience of treatment like? Please leave a comment below.
