Ayurveda & Herbal Medicine


Ayurveda, the science of life, is the knowledge of how to live your best life in accordance with your unique physical, mental, and emotional make-up - more than this, Ayurveda empowers you to take your health and well-being into your own hands. The practice of Ayurveda helps bring dis-eased people back to health and helps healthy people maintain their health by promoting happiness, health, and creative growth.


Ayurveda is a beautiful science in that it deals not only with the treatment and management of specific ailments, but also with a person's physical health, mental balance, spiritual well-being, social welfare, relationships, environment, dietary habits, daily living trends, and seasonal variations. It teaches us to see that we can't consider our own health as separate from that of our family, work, society, and planet.

“Vata, pitta, and kapha move in the whole body producing good or ill effects upon the entire system, according to their normal or aggravated states. Their normal state is balance and their aggravated state is illness.”
