Ayurveda method

Ayurveda, an ancient medicinal system of India, treats all diseases in both curative and preventive ways. It gives more importance to the preventive aspect of health. A healthy lifestyle is insisted to balance the equilibrium of body humors (three doshas) before starting the actual curative treatment.

Ayurveda says that the balance of the body humors is much affected by modern food habits through the accumulated effect of synthetic hormones used food stuffs. For example, more synthetic hormones are used in the modern meat and dairy products, preservatives are used profusely in packaged foods and beverages, chemical pesticides are used in agriculture, and most of the people drink chlorinated water. Even the drugs such as birth control pills and other drugs contain synthetic hormones. Ayurveda tries to check this balance and then gives treatments to remove the problem.
