Bach & Flower Essence Therapies: Theory & Applications Training
In the 20′s and 30′s of the last century, Dr. Edward Bach, a leading English physician and bacteriologist, turned his back on his cutting-edge vaccine research and on the orthodox medicine of his day and lent his every effort to developing a natural, plant based system of healing so simple and straightforward as to be utilizable by all, physician and layperson alike. Over a decade, he formulated 38 plant essences using a unique method of extraction and potentization. His method, which employs one or more of the remedies on the basis of mental and emotional status rather than disease symptoms, is used around the world today with startling success by physicians, nurses, social workers, psychotherapists, educators and parents. The Bach flower remedies are an excellent complimentary modality to existing wellness practices.

Sai Announces 13th Anniversary Celebration with planned creation of third-year doctoral level program in Ayurveda
In April of 2013, the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) approved tentative standards for the implementation of a third year add-on program for graduates of two-year Ayurveda practitioner programs to qualify for a newly created professional membership category of “Ayurvedic Doctor.” This category includes Ayurvedic professionals who have specific specialized training in Ayurveda with overview training in conventional medicine that enables them to interface with Western medical practitioners and provide comprehensive Ayurvedic healthcare to their clients. Note that the use of the term “doctor” may be limited by individual state licensure statutes and regulations.
Because many of Sai Ayurvedic College’s two year graduates (among others) have expressed a desire to advance their education beyond its current level, Sai Ayurvedic College started a third year Doctoral level program in Ayurveda. In addition to meeting the needs of our graduates, this program may also be beneficial to graduates of other two-year programs as well as Indian university Ayurvedic graduates holding the degree of BAMS or higher, in orienting them toward practice in a North American environment. This third year Doctoral program will be offered in the classroom as well as via live webcast. We have upgraded our audio system to a high-tech high band UHF communication system so as to facilitate distance learners’ participation in this and other College programs.
Doctors of Ayurveda are competent at understanding disease from an Ayurvedic perspective, while possessing a working knowledge of Western medical diagnostic and treatment terminology and practices, sufficient to enable them to correlate those terms and diagnoses into Ayurvedic understanding and practice. Doctors of Ayurveda therefore have a working knowledge of Western Medical Pathology, Pharmacology, Diagnostic reports and treatments, in order to interface with the Western medical community.
In addition to the obvious requirement of completion of the first and second years of the program, NAMA has interposed an additional requirement, viz., the completion of a minimum of 6 semester hours (9 quarter hours) of university level instruction in Anatomy and Physiology for admission to the program. Nearly every university, college and community college in the USA offers this particular sequence of courses, i.e., Anatomy & Physiology I & II. Students are not limited in any way as to their choice of institution in which to study these. Following certain criteria, this test will also be administered by our college. A fee will be charged. Graduates and attendees of university or professional school programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Podiatry, Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine, Optometry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physician Assistance Studies, Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, Osteopathy and Naturopathic Medicine have almost certainly already met this requirement as a consequence of graduation. Graduates of programs in Occupational Therapy, Veterinary Medicine and other allied health programs may have met this requirement as well, depending on the specific nature of their coursework completed.
Graduates of foreign institutions will have their status assessed on a case-by-case basis.

You Can Now Have the Benefits of an Ayurvedic Training and Earn a Coveted Ayurvedic Credential through Independent Study: high economic quality at very affordable cost!
Did you know that Sai Ayurvedic College has an online, independent study program? Sai Ayurvedic College now offers an online program of courses. Registration is on a rolling basis and is open at all times for the College’s one year Certificate in Ayurvedic Studies course. From its founding in 2006 up to the present, the College has offered two options for enrollees in its one-year certificate and two-year degree programs: residential classroom attendance at its Miami, Florida facility or participation via web conferencing broadcast of live classes that take place once monthly (on a Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to 6:00pm).
We have recently instituted a discounted tuition rate (in addition to installment programs that are available) for our online program in order to increase its affordability for students within the USA and internationally. The program is complete in itself and leads to a certificate from Sai Ayurvedic College, a prestigious school recognized by the state of Florida, the Veterans Administration and an approved professional school of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.
In its new online program, video-recorded class lectures will be provided in a specially tailored format to individuals who wish to undertake Ayurvedic study on their own schedule, without the need to set aside an entire weekend monthly for web-facilitated attendance at lectures. The college’s online courses are designed to fit the needs of working professionals and others with family and work obligations and who require a maximum degree of flexibility in their study schedule. The program is also designed to fit the needs of international and other students residing at great distances from the school and in varying time zones, for whom classroom attendance would be unwieldy. With a rapidly growing global interest in Ayurveda, the provision of such training abroad is becoming of increasing significance. All courses are taught by experienced scholars and practitioners. As participants frequently note in post-course comments and observations, Sai stresses academic quality, caring and a close and highly interactive teacher-student relationship as well as economic affordability in all of its educational options.
