The Ayurvedic Woman is a program that shares the unique Ayurvedic perspective of women’s health providing guidance for dealing with menstruation, menopause and other issues faced by women.

The Ayurvedic Woman opens up ways to not just reduce or eliminate disturbances in your reproductive system, but also make you a more efficient, more joyful, more optimistic, healthy individual who can responsibly lead the baton of good health for your family, friends as well as your community.

This program is not just for any young woman having crossed the stage of childhood, but for every woman at all ages and stages of life-  right from her child bearing age to her menopausal stage.

Why is it important to learn about the Ayurvedic Path to Women’s Health?

Through Ayurvedic education, you learn the language of the body. You can interpret your regularity of menses and the quality of menstrual flow to understand the impact of the doshas in the body. Without this education, you may think that an imbalance is normal or seek treatment that will relieve the symptom but not eradicate the cause.

For menopause, by learning the effect of the hormones, you can apply practices to support balance when the hormones are not being produced and use natural treatments to alleviate symptoms you may experience prior to or during menopause so that you can have that control over your mental and physical health.

This course is designed to give practical dietary and lifestyle recommendations that women can apply in their lives today to create better health now and in the future.

You will learn:

  • How you can correctly understand doshas and use that knowledge to prevent diseases
  • How to ensure a smooth monthly cycle and healthy functioning of your complete body tissue systems
  • How to handle symptoms like cramps, painful periods, scanty menses, hot flashes, nausea, anxiety and other symptoms related to your reproductive system
  • How to prevent or deal with a stressful, painful transition through menopause
  • How to use Ayurvedic knowledge to feel more energetic, upbeat, youthful and positive by enjoying true, symptom-free health
You will also get 5 valuable bonuses:
- A video on Tips to Maintain an Inner Sense of Self
- Access to a webinar with Mary Thompson about Mental Health
- A video on a Special Breast Massage Ritual with Melanie Sachs

    Mary Thompson, C.A.S., P.K.S

    A founding member and former Secretary of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine, Mary graduated from the first graduating class of the California College of Ayurveda in 1997 and now is a senior teacher there.

    She is a Certified Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist and Pancha Karma Specialist and has also studied in India in 1999 at the International Academy of Ayurveda, spending time on field trips to Ayurvedic schools, clinics, and hospitals.

    In 2008, she received the Charaka Award for Excellence in Ayurvedic Teaching and was given the title "Ayurvedacharya" (respected teacher of Ayurveda).

    Before finding Ayurveda, Mary was an elementary school teacher and a child-care director. As a child-care director for school-aged children, she was concerned about the rate of diagnosis of ADD/ADHD among this population. One program that she worked with had about 10% of the children on medication for ADD/ADHD. She thought that medicating this age group was a frightening trend. When she looked at their lives and into their lunchboxes, she thought that there had to be a solution in diet and lifestyle, but didn’t know exactly what that solution was.

    This is what initially spurred her into the study of Ayurveda with the intention of working with this population. Mary saw this condition as being a family condition, as everyone in the family was stressed and trying to manage their stresses with a typical American diet. She felt that Ayurveda would give her a greater insight into the cause of this imbalance and a template for its treatment.
