Ayurveda is a natural medicine system that has existed for thousands of years. It is based on the elements ether, air, fire, water and earth. They exist in all of us and in all livings things. The system and principles of Ayurveda use these very elements to bring balance, healing and health to the body and mind. The approach is gradual and gentle, combining nutrition, lifestyle, sense therapies and herbs for overall holistic lasting results. Ayurveda is the perfect complement to Western Medicine. The top ten diseases in the modern world are life-style and diet related both of which are fundamentally part of the healing approach and process of Ayurveda. Ayurveda deals with the root causes based on the elements involved with the illness or imbalance to bring lasting results that can be managed and maintained.
