CPD (Continuing Professional Development) accreditation underpins the integrity and quality of learning activities for professional development, specialist expertise and the enhancement of personal skills and proficiency. CPD certifies that The Pukka Life Academy is a reputable source from which key stakeholders can draw knowledge, learn, support and educate others with. Each module is worth 3points.

The Pukka Life Academy offers twelve interactive modules covering a range of health topics, from Ayurveda, the benefits of turmeric, women’s health and musculoskeletal health, to digestive health, stress, sleep and immunity, amongst others.

The programme has been curated by Pukka’s inhouse team of dedicated herbal health experts, made up of practicing Medical Herbalists, Ayurvedic Practitioners and yoga instructors, including Pukka Herbs’ co-founder and Master Herbsmith, Sebastian Pole.

Founded in 2001 by Tim Westwell and Sebastian Pole, Pukka’s mission is to create a world where plants play a central role in human health and wellbeing. Inside each of Pukka’s plastic-free teabags are the finest quality, practitioner-grade organic herbs, ethically sourced and fairly paid for.



The Pukka Life Academy and all of Pukka’s principles are underpinned by Ayurveda, India’s ancient holistic health system. Ayurveda is also known as ‘the science of life’ (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers guidance on living in a truly authentic way and teaches us how to achieve balance by taking a holistic approach to health and medicine, encompassing therapies such as yoga and massage, along with herbs and nutrition. The results are often more enduring and profound than conventional medicines.

Preventative health

The Pukka Life Academy explores the concept of health and wellbeing from traditional, ayurvedic and bio-medical perspectives, highlighting natural, preventative solutions to health issues, supporting both every day and long-term health.
Pukka’s goal is to help create a future where natural medicine and an appreciation of integrated health and wellbeing – taking mind, body and spirit into account – play a stronger role in our health system and our physical and mental welfare.
That’s why the Pukka Life Academy explores herbal remedies that help to address the root cause of a condition, rather than just treating the symptoms.

For example, if your skin is red, irritated or inflamed, or if you experience a ‘skin breakout’ from time to time, then instead of treating the skin directly, you could incorporate cleansing herbs that are high in antioxidants, such as turmeric and green tea, into your diet to achieve a healthy complexion from the inside out.

Research and Education

Everything Pukka Herbs makes is expertly blended using the highest quality, medicinal-grade organic ingredients, led by a commitment and investment in herbal research and education. Pukka invests over £200,000 in research every year and its team of internal experts work in partnership with leading universities to ensure that the latest scientific herbal research and expertise informs product development.

Pukka can also boast its true herbal heritage with over 22% of its employees having a formal qualification (degree, masters or PhD) in herbal medicine, plant medicine or nutrition.
