Ayurveda is the most complete and best developed natural system of health worldwide. It is one of the few systems of medicine that treats the patient at the level of body, mind and consciousness. Each of us intuitively wants someone who really understands who we are and why we are sick at the deepest level. Ayurveda is much more effective than Western medicine in the management of chronic diseases of the body and the mind. Moreover, Ayurveda is completely safe if practiced the right way. Ayurvedic medicines have few or no side effects. More importantly, Ayurveda offers the patient the control of their process: through lifestyle adjustments they can take control over their own healing process. Ayurveda is the medical side of Yoga. Yoga provides a solid foundation for the healing of the mind through deep relaxation and the use of conscious exercise. Ayurveda expands the potential of Yoga to heal the body using diet, lifestyle and herbal medicines.
