Course Sample

Anatomy and Physiology

To become a competent alternative healthcare practitioner, a sound understanding of physiological functioning is essential. The course base is expanded to include an overview of organic and systemic interrelationships in an optimally functioning body.

Anatomy and Physiology

The Upanishads are among the most important parts of literature in the history of Indian religions and culture, that played an important role in the development of spiritual ideas in ancient India. In the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad, it is written: “Om purnamada purnamidam purnat purnamuda chyate purnasya purnamadaya purnameva avashishyate.”

Translated to English, it says: “That is the Whole. This too is the whole. The Whole comes out of the Whole. Taking the Whole from the Whole, the Whole itself remains.” As an herbalist, it is this concept of holism that guides our practice.

This course posits that before we can even begin to discuss how the human body works, we first need a model to describe how it exists in time and space. Therefore, anatomy is our starting point, the study of structure and the relationships that exist between different structures. It provides us with a model with which we can study human function, or physiology, and how ultimately the two cannot be separated. So we take them one at a time, and then integrate them through the coursework.
