Vedic Earth Medicine is the integration of deep Ayurveda and Shamanic practice. In ancient times, Ayurveda focused much less on individual doshas and much more on aligning with individual and cosmic rhythms. In Vedic Earth Medicine we honor this. Our emphasis is on learning how to perceive and align with the rhythms of the seasons and the cosmos. We also explore how to connect with our own innate long-forgotten rhythms. In the ancient Ayurveda practitioners found harmony with inner and out nature and by this found radiant health.
The truth is, if we want to heal we must form relationship with our wounds. We must listen deeply and understand that true healing often means that ‘business as usual’ simply won’t work. In fact, it is just that sort of disconnected living that fosters imbalance and disease. Vedic Earth Medicine is a body of healing practices that reinstate meaningful connection with ourselves, our bodies and all of life.
Our toolbox is substantial. We bring consciousness to our daily and seasonal routine. We learn how to eat as a healing practice that creates balance, energy and radiance. The dietary guidelines we follow are about finding joy in healthful eating, not about being restrictive, fearful or shaming ourselves.
The herbal medicine we practice is about recognizing the healing vibration that plant medicines can offer to humankind. We partner with these sacred herbs to enhance the effects of the medicine.
We also employ healing ritual. Ritual is a dominant factor in human life. However so much of our ritual has become unconscious and destructive. Negative behavior patterns and addictions are a fundamental human energy gone awry. In Vedic Earth Medicine we learn how to employ conscious ritual in our life for cultivating healing and connection.
Fundamentally true health is found by creating connection; connection with one’s Inner Self and with the immense universe that surrounds us. When we live in concert with life, radiant health is the inevitable result.

In our time the Western Medical model is the dominant avenue through which individuals seek resolution to health issues. And though this system saves lives in case of emergency and is filled with dedicated doctors, nurses and other professionals, the system itself is not designed to regard individuals as whole. The problem area or problematic symptom is the focus.
Vedic Earth Medicine is a tradition of healing that utilizes the deep and ancient practices of Ayurveda and Shamanism to heal the whole person. The premise of this medicine is that you cannot truly resolve a symptom or disease without healing the whole person. In these sessions individuals are acknowledged, heard and given support in their healing journey. We have quite a toolkit in this natural medicine tradition and so each person’s recommendations will look different. Often we incorporate working with diet, herbs, oils, yoga therapy and ritual medicine practice.
Vedic Earth Medicine can be used harmoniously in conjunction with Western therapies as well as other alternative and traditional forms of healing. It can also be utilized with great success on its own. Any health condition be it physical, mental or emotional can benefit from implementing these methods.

Pancha Karma means ‘Five Actions’ in Sanskrit and refers to a family of healing therapies meant to restore harmony to the elements and bodily humors (doshas). By restoring this balance the root causes of disease and illness are eliminated. Ayurveda recommends that as part of our observance of seasonal practices we partake in these therapies to enhance the rejuvenation and health of the tissues.
Snehana (Abhyangam) is an oil massage using specially prepared herbal-medicated oils. It is an important preliminary therapy that allows the doshas to mobilize and thus be exited from the body. Oil is applied to the entire body with a particular type of massage helping toxins to move towards the gastro-intestinal tract. Snehana makes the superficial and deep tissues soft and supple, thus helping to remove stress and to nourish the nervous system. This therapy relaxes the body and enhances our ability to stay healthy during environmental changes.
Udvartana is a full body exfoliation and lymphatic drainage massage similar to snehana but more invigorating. It uses a specially blended, deeply penetrating herbal paste, made with various organic grains, flours, herbs and oils. This energizing exfoliation treatment conditions, tones and tightens the skin, leaving it feeling fresh, young and silky smooth. It improves the tone of the muscles, enhances blood circulation and eases joint pain. Udvartana presses stagnant lymphatic toxins out of the body and is especially good for weight loss, cellulite and stimulating sluggish circulation and digestion. Udvartana balances Kapha dosha and cleans the skin. It increases the metabolic rate and works mostly on rasa dhatu (lymph), enabling the vayus to flow and activating the nadi system.
Swedana is sudation or sweating therapy and is given following the Snehana. The body is steamed similar to a sauna. An herbal concoction is added to the steam to further loosen the toxins from the individual. Swedana further enhances openings of the pores, flushing out impurities through the sweat glands and increasing the penetration of curative oils and herbs used in therapy. Ancient medical texts compare the body to a dry and brittle stick which, after anointing (snehana) and heating (swedana), regains its suppleness. Oleation and sweating cause long-entrenched toxins to drain into the digestive tract where they are expelled through the eliminatory channels of the body.
Shirodhara is a purifying and rejuvenating therapy in Ayurveda that involves gently pouring therapeutic liquids on the forehead for a specific time continuously and rhythmically allowing it to run over the scalp and into the hair. Shirodhara is a unique form of ancient therapy. The liquid is poured on the forehead from a specific height and for a specific period continuously and rhythmically allowing it to run through the scalp and into the hair. This therapy is also offered as a stand-alone therapy, 90$. Shirodhara has been used to treat a variety of conditions including eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying of hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, insomnia, hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo, certain types of skin diseases like psoriasis, and for relaxation.
Shirodhara has many benefits in as it offers a way to purify and rejuvenate one’s body and soul. Shirodhara helps to remove all the built up harmful elements from the body. It generates energy through the body and helps the nutrients flow freely to the brain of a person, facilitating healing from within. Shirodhara also improves the functions of five senses and helps to stabilize the nervous system of the body. It is proven in helping people get rid of insomnia. Problems such as headaches and hair loss are also treated to great extent following shirodhara. Shirodhara cools the body, promoting greater concentration and relaxation. It has been used over thousands of years to treat eye diseases, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, graying hair, neurological disorders, memory loss, hearing impairment, tinnitus, vertigo and psoriasis.
Nasya is the nasal administration of medication either as herbal-medicated oil or an aromatic smoke. The nose is the doorway to the brain and it is also the doorway to consciousness. An excess of bodily humors accumulated in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas is eliminated by means of the nearest possible opening, the nose. This therapy cleanses and opens the channels of the head, thereby improving the process of oxygenation (prana), which has a direct influence on the functioning of brain. The therapy is beneficial if done on a regular basis, because it keeps the eyes, nose and ear healthy. It prevents the early graying of hair and beard, and helps to relieve migraines, facial, neck and jaw stiffness as well as sinus issues of all kinds.
