"Multiple Sclerosis: Ayurvedic Perspective of Causation, Progression and Treatment"

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive disease characterized by inflammation, demyelination and neurodegeneration of the central nervous system. Canada has one of the highest rates in the world with an average of 12 people per day being diagnosed. Despite decades of research, the cause of MS remains a mystery. The treatment provides temporary relief, is partially effective and can create side effects.   Micheline will address Ayurveda's role in finding the multiple determinants of MS. She explores the Vata, Pitta and Kapha imbalances in dhatu theory, especially in majja dhatu. Treatment is a multi-modality approach that balances daily practices, foods, herbs, medicines, mind, senses and emotional patterns.  Ayurveda looks to find a "middle road" for MS patients, to help repair and restore the Whole Being.

11:00 am-12:00 pm - Neelam Toprani, Founder of Sewanti Ayurvedic Series,

"Promoting Ayurvedic Medicine in Light of Health Canada Regulations"

Modern Ayurveda is a complex phenomenon that is both practiced as a whole system of medicine and as various forms of self-care, including Ayurvedic massages, diet, yoga, etc. Ayurveda has its historical roots in India but its present expressions in the West, are a product of globalization, partly through migration and a growing interest in alternative health in the west. In India, Ayurveda is central to health provisions nationwide. The Indian Government has in place various acts and councils to regulate and control the practice of Ayurveda training, practice, and Ayurvedic medicine standardization. However, in Canada, the practice of Ayurveda is self-regulated and its medicine falls under the category of natural health products regulations, which does not provide a viable complement to the biomedicine as a whole system of medicine. Neelam believes that Ayurveda has the ability to revolutionize the modern healthcare system and make the future medical system more sustainable.

12:00pm-1:00pm - Vegetarian Lunch 

1:00 pm-2:25 pm - Keynote Speaker Dr. Eduardo Cardona-Sanclemente, D.Sc., PhD., MSc., Ayurveda Doctor (NAMA),

"Ayurveda & Cancer - An Integrative Approach with Modern Medicine"

Cancer, malignant tumours or neoplasms are dysfunctional manifestations of cellular, tissular and systemic homeostatic imbalance. They can affect any body part, ultimately reaching conditions of metastasis. We will study the mechanism by which body imbalances result from genetic predisposition, lifestyle and/or environmental conditions which allow these alterations in our 100 trillion cells despite our immune system’s “routine inspection”. Ayurveda, the oldest documented method of the personalized medical system of prevention and health promotion, has recognized the multifactorial characteristics of cancer. We will review and consider Ayurvedic knowledge strategies with modern medical technology to yield a deeper awareness of the complex and fascinating interplay of genetic, biochemical, physiological, psychological, and environmental contributors, in order to rebuild and optimize our body/mind/conscious balance.

2:30pm-3:25 pm - Glynnis Osher, C.A.P, Ayurveda Alchemist

"5 Elements and 5 Senses For Integrative Wellness Education"

Within any learning environment open to integrating the wisdom practices of Ayurveda, lives the great opportunity for a future of holistic harmony in our collective wellbeing. Over 20 years of teaching, Glynnis has experienced from students the desire to incorporate daily Ayurvedic practices when inspired first-hand through the portals of the five senses. Using spice-medicines and the intelligence of the aromatic botanicals, it is possible to convey deep concepts and complex theories simply - so that participants can be infused with an elemental knowing. Awakening the mind with the understanding of the five elements is an embodied way of sharing our united purpose of a peaceful, healthy, and fulfilled life and this has proven profound in a class setting where healing and transformation has been witnessed and shared over time. We will apply some of these practices here to rejuvenate our own true path of wellness.

3:30pm-4:00pm - Tea Break

4:00pm-4:55pm - Dr Arun Kumar Garg,  PhD. MD. FRCPC.

"History & Future Of Ayurveda Education in Canada" (video appearance)

As with all-Natural Medicine, there has been an upsurge in public interest in Ayurveda/Ayurvedic Medicine. Canada is one of the developed countries in the world that has recently taken a high interest in Ayurveda. Today globally Ayurveda is increasingly acknowledged to be a comprehensive, traditional system of natural medicine and has reached the threshold of entering the realm of evidence-based science. Upholding the educational & practicing standards lies in the hands of visionaries, leaders & stakeholders: Governance, Providers, and Influencers. The current scenario of Ayurvedic Education in Canada does require an upgrade to reflect on the global needs, demands and development of Ayurvedic Medicine. Let's review together the Canadian standards of Natural medicine education and possibilities to set a learning model for the future of Ayurvedic Medicine.

"Ayurveda As Integrative Medicine" 

Ayurveda, the knowledge of life and longevity, is perhaps the oldest existing body of knowledge on the healing process. It is not a mere medical knowledge system; it is a way of life that considers not just the body and mind, but also the human spirit and consciousness. Integrative Medicine is, in many spaces, defined as healing-oriented medicine that takes into account all factors that influence health and disease including the body, mind, spirit and community. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient and makes use of all appropriate therapies. Let us together explore how Ayurveda in the context of Integrative Medicine, can contribute better to the individual healing process.

2:00pm-3:00pm - Dr. Eduardo Cardona-Sanclemente, D.Sc., PhD., MSc., Ayurveda Doctor (NAMA) ,
"Ayurveda & Depression - How to Restore Your Balance and Reclaim your Health"

Depression is a multi-level disorder manifesting as severe despondency and dejection, often coupled with feelings of inadequacy, impacting daily functions. Ayurveda calls depression manovasada, and its management is through individually tailored treatment plans based on the concept of body and mind constitutions -prakruti and manas prakruti and the recognition that without restoring balance, there will always be ill health. Unlike Western medicine, Ayurveda does not treat you separately from your mental condition and has long-established techniques for meeting the roots of health issues and challenges to restore body/mind/conscious balance by inviting you to participate actively in the process of healing instead of passively waiting for potential recovery by taking a new drug regime. We will be discussing mind-state evaluation and the various tailored protocols to improve mental balance.

"As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, educator, student & devotee on the Ayurveda path, I was so nourished & inspired by attending & participating in the 2018 Share Ayurveda Conference.

It is always so important to the deepening of our practice to attend a community event of like-minded souls who understand & enjoy the wisdom & benefits that Ayurveda & Yoga bring to our wellbeing & consciousness.

For me, it felt like drinking from the well, with such incredible Ayurvedic keynote speakers as Dr. Vasant Lad, & Ramkumar Kutty amongst other generous wisdom teachers & healers.

The depth of Ayurvedic knowledge & practical insights coming together in the conference filled me up & brought the Ayurvedic community together to celebrate, learn, share, & connect.

If you are committed to your healing path in any modality, & especially in Ayurveda & Yoga, I highly recommend joining the next conference, to fill your own cup & pass that light along sincerely to others."
