Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, is translated from Sanskrit as “the science of life.” It is more than 5,000 years old, with roots in Vedic culture. Ayurveda emphasizes balance—in body, mind and spirit—as essential to achieving and maintaining wellness. This balance is a critical component in healing chronic health problems.
