Madrona House Apothecary + Healing Arts
1423 34th Ave Unit C, Seattle, Washington 98122
This class is a cornerstone to my approach to herbalism, and I highly recommend it to people who have taken the Intro class and are seeking more. Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and Western Herbalism all use constitutional types to explain patterns of disease. For example, some people are susceptible to heat (irritation, overstimulation), others to cold (lack of function). Knowing types can instruct your health regimen and what herbs are best for you. This is a hot topic for those interested in holistic health!
In this two-hour class, we'll learn:
— the traits of the three Ayurvedic constitutions and the four humoral temperaments of Greek medicine.
— The four elements and how they pertain to constitutional types and body function
— The four qualities (hot, cold, damp, dry) and how they show up in the body
— basic tongue reading and other assessment techniques
— herbs as they pertain to these topics
We'll take a few simple tests to determine which constitution you are in both systems. Come with a notebook and your curiosity!
