Balanced Living: Ayurvedic Consultations with Jessica Blanchard
Ayurveda is the world’s oldest form of medicine, and has been practiced across India for thousands of years. It has influenced the traditional medicines of China, Tibet and Thailand. Like any emerging eastern modality, it does not have widely accepted standards, apart from the National Ayurvedic Medical Association, which reviews Ayurvedic training programs and has a list of qualified practitioners.
Jessica has been studying Ayurveda since 2003 with some of the most respected teachers in the field, including Dr. Robert Svoboda, Dr. Sunil Joshi and Vaidya Atreya Smith.
In 2007 she completed the four-year Practitioner’s Training Program at the European Institute of Vedic Studies, studying directly under Vaidya Atreya Smith. She is a member of NAMA, the governing body for the profession of Ayurveda in the United States.
Ayurveda is an ideal way to improve your health, whatever its current state, because it looks at individuals on a holistic level. It is especially helpful for those with problems which western medicine cannot treat.
