The Health Ministry at St. Thomas's Episcopal Church in Camden will host a talk on  Ayurvedic Medicine this Sunday, September 22.

Ayurveda is the oldest healing system on the planet, more than 5,000 years old, and is the root from which Chinese, Japanese, and Tibetan medicine sprang. The ancient concepts of Ayurveda are being reborn as modern scientific thought through the teachings of Functional Medicine.

Margaret Peet spent six years as a student of Ayurveda at The Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, studying with Dr. Vasant Lad, a well-known East Indian Doctor of Ayurvedic Medicine. During this time she also received an ND degree from Westbrook University with a major in Ayurvedic Medicine. In addition, Margaret is certified in Functional Medicine through The Institute for Functional Medicine in Gig Harbor, Washington, an organization founded by Dr. Jeffrey Bland.

Prior to her medical training, Margaret worked as an editor at Bank Street College of Education in New York City and for twelve years was first level editor for Betty Friedan. She is also co-author of My Doctor Says I’m Fine, So Why Do I Feel So Bad?, a book outlining the basic concepts of Ayurveda for the Western reader.

Margaret works with clients at her apartment in Camden.
