Prevention of diseases with ayurveda


Ayurveda offers a unique blend of science and philosophy that balances the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components necessary for holistic health. Ayurveda is not simply a health care system but a form of lifestyle adopted to maintain perfect balance and harmony within the human existence.

Unique Three fold approach of Ayurveda:

1. Preventive approach- Diseases like Diabetes, Hypertension, Arthritis, Thyroid diseases etc usually start cropping up at the age of 35-40 yrs, especially if you have a family history of these diseases. Attack of these diseases can be avoided if a healthy individual starts doing Panchakarma therapies at the age of 35-40.
