  • How Ayurveda works?
    When a person is imbalanced or stressed, they’re likely to develop disease. Ayurveda focuses on implementing lifestyle interventions and natural treatments, therapies, and remedies to provide balance in your physical body, mind, spirit, and the world around you. Every individual is unique, and Ayurveda defines a person’s specific constitution or prakriti. According to Ayurveda, these prakriti determine your physical, psychological, behavioral and immunological traits. Different constitutions respond to different treatments, so what works for you might not work for someone else.

    Ayurveda recommends avoiding certain foods and lifestyle habits that can disrupt the balance of the doshas and lead to imbalances and disease. These include processed and packaged foods, excessive sugar, caffeine, alcohol, smoking, overeating, late nights, and excessive stress. It also suggests avoiding foods that are not suitable for one's dosha or health condition, such as heavy or oily foods for those with kapha imbalances or spicy and sour foods for those with pitta imbalances.
  • What ailments can Ayurveda help with?
    Ayurveda can help with a range of ailments such as digestive issues, skin problems, respiratory problems, joint pain, stress, hormonal imbalances, chronic conditions, detoxification, immune system support, and disease prevention.

Our approach is flexible, eliminates confusion, and allows for great creativity and satisfaction.
