Since the beginning of time, people resorted to medicinal plants to treat the health problems that came to them, but, more than that, they used herbalism in a preventive way. After nearly two centuries of oblivion, the use of herbal medicines is again gaining ground in a society in which individuals strive to stay healthy without the use of chemicals, using medicines that work according to the body's defenses and rhythms of nature.​ Usually the treatments and herbal products stand out for being:

* Harmoniously assimilable and chemical-free, which act alone, often releasing unwanted toxins in the body; * More easily eliminated by the body; * In most cases practically free of side effects​ . In this Ayurvedic based herbalism training, some of the products to be elaborated are:

- Toothpaste - Deodorant - Creams and lotions for daily use and specific conditions (burns, analgesics, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, etc.) - Massage and daily oils - Compound for strengthening the immune system - Treatment for ears - Various tinctures - Antipyretic compounds - Antiseptic / antibacterial and hemostatic compounds - Medicated honey compounds (antitussive, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic), medicated ghee and medicated aloe vera​ .

About the Trainer David Ferreira: Returned from Japan in 2008, where he lived for three and a half years and where he studied Japanese therapies of Vedic origin. He took several courses in India (where he also spent about two years) and in Portugal on Ayurveda (Ayurveda Therapies, Pancha Karma, massage, etc). In Thailand he studied Thai massage. In Mexico, he started in Maya medicine, which shares principles identical to those of traditional Indian medicine. He currently works as an Ayurvedic therapist/masseur, facilitates workshops in this area and organizes Ayurvedic-based therapeutic programs.
