Ayurveda is an ancient system of health care that not only treats particular diseases but also offers a complete, holistic way of life.
Ayurveda is derived from two words, Ayur, “life” and Veda, “science,” and means ‘the science of life.’ Conservative estimates place the origins of Ayurveda at 5,000 years ago in the Himalayan Mountains. Comprehensive Ayurvedic medical texts estimated to be 3,000 years old include advanced surgical techniques, obstetrics, geriatrics, and the use of herbs. This makes Ayurveda the most enduring healing modality in the world today.
In India, 70% of the formal medicine is still based on Ayurveda and it currently serves over 600 million people. Many of the traditional Ayurvedic uses of herbs have been validated by modern clinical studies conducted around the world.
In Ayurveda, there are seven basic body constitutions which result from the predominance of one or more energetic influences, or Doshas. The Doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, influence physical, mental, and spiritual health. Everyone is considered to be a combination of these three body influences.
Ayurceutics offers high quality supplements to help balance the Doshas. For example, Shatavari is traditionally used as a female tonic and can help control disturbances in Vata and Pitta body constitutions.
