How does Ayurveda work?

The healing powers of nature

An illness or an imbalance does not occur overnight. In fact, mind/body imbalances or illnesses culminate over months or even years. This extensive “breakdown” of the natural defences against illness within the body requires a healing process that can heal from the inside, and not mask it from the outside. Contrary to Western medicine which treats symptoms of illness and external indications of disease, Ayurveda believes in prevention and maintenance. Much like tearing weed from within the dirt, this practice identifies and addresses the root cause of a problem. This healing process is much slower than its Western counterpart and is particularly not as simple as taking a pill. 

This form of holistic healing is rooted in the absolute balance of lifestyle, diet, mindset and spiritual grounding.
