Certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor Training

For those wishing to expand their current health practice, or obtain additional knowledge and resources, becoming a Certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor (CAHC) is a path to consider. A CAHC is trained in preventive health care with a specific focus on diet and lifestyle. Studying the Ayurvedic principles of mind-body-spirit connection will uncover the root cause of illness and reveal how the body can heal naturally. 

Join Dr. Somesh Kaushik, an Ayurvedic and naturopathic physician with over 35 years of clinical and academic experience, in January for a year-long online course in Ayurvedic Health Counseling. “This course follows the curriculum of the Ministry of Ayush, Government of India, which represents the finest in education of traditional Ayurveda,” says Kaushik. The curriculum consists of lectures, clinical practicum, self-study and case reports. Concentration areas are concepts of Ayurveda, history and philosophy, skills and competencies, as well as recommendations, treatments and other interventions. Monthly weekend meetings may be augmented with additional weekends if necessary, and an internship is advised for completion.

Trained as an Ayurvedic physician at Kurukshetra University, India, and as a naturopathic doctor at the University of Bridgeport, Connecticut, Kaushik also holds a dual MA in public health and public administration from the University of Alabama. He has taught Ayurvedic medicine throughout the U.S. and recently founded The Institute for the Advancement of Ayurvedic Sciences, a research and teaching institution.

Dr. Kaushik’s Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic is located at 792 Rte. 35, Cross River, NY. For more information, call 646.670.6725 or email [email protected].
