Ayurvedic herbs restore wellness to your whole system by treating the underlying causes of imbalance while alleviating perceivable symptoms. Herbs have always been a vital component of an Ayurvedic lifestyle, from garden herbs and cooking spices to complex healing formulas.
Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda is known as the world’s oldest healing science. Consisting of two Sanskrit words, ayush – meaning life or longevity and veda meaning deep knowledge or wisdom, Ayurveda means “life wisdom” or “knowledge of longevity”. Ayurvedic medicine has thrived over time and provided the foundation for modern systems of medicine. Its key facets are a personalized and seasonal diet, balanced lifestyle and Ayurvedic herbs.
