Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the science of life, as it is over 5000 years old. It advises how to protect life, create longevity and includes scientifically proven methods to rejuvenate the body and prevent and cure

disease.
Ayurveda states that when Tridoshas (Vatha, Pitta and Kapha), Agnis (the principles of digestion and metabolism), seven Dhatus (tissues which are the functioning units of anatomical and physiological structure), and Malas (waste products like urin, stool, etc. eleminated during digestion and metabolism) unite together to function properly, health will be achieved.

Disease is the imbalance of these, which leads to the formation of Ama, a sticky toxic substance that clogs in the subtle channels (Strotas) resisting the transportation of nutrients, thus arresting energy, which results in premature aging, lack of vitality and eventually serious illness.

Ayurveda offers many wonderful healing and youth promoting herbal formulas that strengthen the immune system while correcting the underlying imbalance.

In Ayurvedic medicine the whole plant is used and prepared in accordance with ancient authoritative texts, whereas modern medicine isolates the so called active ingredient in the plant, Ayurveda uses the entire plant and, combining it with many others, enhances the healing benefits without the danger of negative side effects, which are so common in modern medicine.

Ayurveda recommends the Panchakarma therapies (purification techniques) along with pacification therapy (the use of curative medicine and immunisation and rejuvenating medicine) practicing a daily routine and a proper diet specific to the individual. Individual body constitution is classified into seven categories which can be identified with a thorough consultation. Pulse denotes only the physiological state in the body and cannot be the only method used to determine the overall health of an individual's constitution.
