TRADITIONAL ĀYURVEDIC MEDICINE
Āyurveda is the world's oldest, continuously practiced health care system. Mastered and refined in India, it has influenced health care across the globe for thousands of years.
Āyurveda is the original system of holistic, sustainable health care. Its foundations are rooted in natural law. Its complex, scientific framework is a functional, interconnected paradigm that is yet to be understood in Western medicine.
Āyurveda's purpose is to create health, identify the root cause of disease and ultimately cure it. The knowledge, wisdom and science of Āyurveda has been time-tested and documented extensively for over 2,000 years, primarily in the language of Sanskrit. It demonstrates efficacy through frameworks of its paradigm using holistic and reductionist methods.
