Advanced Ayurvedic Herbal Studies (Nighantu) – Summer Intensive

VBA420: Advanced Ayurvedic Herbal Studies (Nighantu) class – Summer Intensive is a third year level BAMS (India Ayurvedic physician training) equivalent education for postgraduate study in herbology. 

Dr. Bharat Vaidya will focus on over 70+ herbs covered in classical Nighantu texts. While still abundant, many of these herbs have fallen into disuse since the post-British Raj chaos and its impact on Ayurvedic education and Indian government.

The lectures integrate basic concepts from western pharmacology, the biochemistry of important active ingredients in medicinal plants, as well as their absorption, transport, metabolism, and excretion properties. Principles of administration and drug-herb interactions will be covered in depth.

In this course you will also learn: 

  • To understand the concept of pharma co-dynamics and pharma co-kinetics.
  • To understand the therapeutic index, measures of toxicity, and measures of safety and efficacy.
  • To become familiar with Nighantu descriptions of 70 or more of the commonly prescribed Ayurvedic Herbs.
  • The list of herbs in order of appearance in Bhavprakash 

All students will receive professionally detailed notes (in a power point presentation) with pictures of herbs for identification, just prior to class.
