An Ayurvedic Health Counselor (AHC) is trained to use the knowledge of  Ayurveda, the holistic medical system behind the practice of yoga, to help people live well-balanced lives, promoting good health and vitality. The AHC combines modern developments and techniques with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, assisting people to live in harmony with their innate constitutions, the seasons, and their time of life. The focus is on disease prevention and health promotion, educating and working with clients on diet, lifestyle, daily routine, and stress management.

Debbie Helfeld has been practicing and studying Ayurveda for more than 6 years. She is certified as an AHC with the National Ayurvedic Medical Association. She is trained to provide individual counseling and make recommendations.
