Overview

The ancient Indian system of healing and medicine known as Ayurveda has proven effective in disease prevention and health creation for thousands of years. Ayurvedic medicine works by enlivening the body’s inner intelligence and enhancing the immunity of the individual. It treats the disease at the source rather than the symptoms alone, without adverse side effects or creating a new disease.
