Pain Management: The Superstars of Ayurveda
Updated: Jan 2, 2020
AANP CE APPROVED: 1 credit hour
Pain Management: The Superstars of Ayurveda will allow healthcare practitioners to incorporate Ayurvedic herbs easily into their practices to help patients dealing with acute and chronic pain. Pain is multifacaceted, so we will review the types of pain, various aspects of pain and the perception of pain. We will then discuss herbs, oils and daily practices that have been used in Ayurvedic Medicine for over 5,000 years. Some of the herbs may already be a part of your practice but new ways of incorporating the herbs along with diet and lifestyle will be offered. Unique herbs and oils will also be introduced that are specific to Ayurveda. Case studies, research, Naturopathic Principles, and Ayurvedic philosophy will be woven into the webinar. The webinar will be live so that individuals can ask specific questions in regard to case management.
