I deal with many issues such as psychological disorders, disorders of the skin and blood, including eye diseases, with focus on traditional Kerala Ayurveda formulas and specific diet and lifestyle advice. To this, ancient Yogic techniques are brought in.
Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultations, Yoga and Ayurveda Consultations. Ayurvedic (Medical) Astrology readings and Consultations.
We are affiliated with AAPNA and the American Institute of Vedic Studies through our Academy of Traditional Ayurveda.
We also conduct various Ayurvedic Awareness Courses and Programs in New Zealand also.
Durgadas is the founder of the 'Vishwa Ayurved Samaj' and the 'Academy of Traditional Ayurveda' as well as an Internationally-read published author of over thirteen books on Ayurveda and Vedic sciences.
As a Certified "Veda Kovid" (Proficiency in Vedic Sciences) and Yoga and Ayurveda Teacher from Dr. David Frawley and the American Institute of Vedic Studies, I furthered by study into Ayurveda, after Ayurvedic Lifestyle Certification in India.
Here, under the Ashtavaidya system of Kerala, originating from the Seer Vagbhata, I learnt with several doctors and traditional vaidyas, in Ayurvedic and specific Kerala methods of treatment, diagnosis, ayurvedic pharmacy, massage, diet and beauty techniques.
I have hence tried to keep the Ayurvedic teachings more traditional than most, bringing in Ayurvedic Yoga and Ayurvedic Astrology, as also Hindu spiritual methods into practise.
Specialising in these specific fields of Ayurveda has hence helped me to bring in a more overall traditional approach to the mind and body.
