A 5,000-year-old natural healing science from India, Ayurveda is based on the fundamental concept that no two people are alike. Therefore, any one particular diet or lifestyle habit is unlikely to benefit every person in the same way. Instead Ayurveda helps people to understand their own mind/body/spirit system and address imbalances at the root cause of disease. Ayurvedic principles emphasize that we are self-reliant, self-healing beings who can maintain (and regain!) good health simply by living a balanced life and eating the right foods for our nature.
