from MSU News Service
BOZEMAN — Montana State University Wonderlust, in partnership with the Belgrade Community Library, will host an online presentation of “Ayurveda Then and Now: 5,000 years of Medicine in the Making.” The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, and is free and open to the public.
Doctor of Ayurvedic Medicine Leviyah Kern will discuss ayurveda, a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent. She will describe the ancient traditions of Indian medicine; how the Wise Ones, or Rishis, viewed the world through five elements of life; how this medicine came to the rest of the world through travel and trade; and how ayurveda is finding what she calls a new life as scientific studies delve into the efficacy of customized medicine.
Kern holds a doctoral degree in ayurvedic medicine from the California College of Ayurveda and said she is committed to restoring optimal health for people through energy integration, lifestyle alignment and nutritional wisdom. During a year-long stay with her Polish grandparents, Kern found a passion for the elderly and decided to specialize in elder care.
