Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurveda is a traditional healing system that originated in India that focuses on a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to achieve optimal health. The word Ayurveda means “the science of life” and revolves around creating healthy daily habits and lifestyle practices to improve one’s well-being, including improving digestion and metabolism, creating a healthy immune system, and optimizing the body’s ability to heal. It also aims to identify the underlying causes of diseases to reverse the disease process and prevent future occurrences, as opposed to simply treating the symptoms. Some practices can include massage, meditation, yoga, and dietary changes.
