Ayurvedic Treatments & Remedies

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing. It first originated in the Vedic culture of India.  It’s actually considered by many to be the oldest healing science.

Ayurvedic medicine is based on the premise that there are three doshas:

  • Vata
  • Pitta
  • Kapha

It is believed that disease and illness originate from an imbalance in the three energies.

The primary goal of Ayurvedic medicine is to help people live long, healthy and balanced lives without the need for prescription drugs, complicated surgeries or suffering painful conditions. In fact, the very word Ayurveda itself means something in Sanskrit similar to “lifespan build on knowledge” or “science of life.”

People living in India have relied on traditional Ayurvedic practices to heal everything from infertility to digestive issues for centuries.  As complementary and alternative health practices have become more popular,  Ayurveda has become increasingly popular and is still practiced effectively today.

According to a 2015 report published by University of Maryland Medical Center, Ayurvedic medicine can help treat:

  • Inflammatory conditions
  • Hormonal conditions
  • Digestive disorders
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Dementia
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation)
  • Herpes
  • High blood pressure or cholesterol
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Perimenopausal problems
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and cramps
