The concepts of universal interconnectedness, the body’s constitution (prakriti), and life forces (doshas) are the primary basis of ayurvedic medicine.

Ayurveda treats the root cause of disease and allopathic methods treat symptoms. Ayurveda goes after the root cause which will have a more longstanding effect.
Ayurveda allows you to take the reins of your own health. You don’t have to wait for a prescription or undergo unnecessary tests. For example, if you normally have a pattern of getting a little constipated in fall, then prior to fall you would start eating more warm cooked moderately spiced foods, ingest more healthy oils, take in more water and warm herbal teas, return to a more regular routine, avoid cold & drying foods.

Herbs are nature’s gift of health and longevity. They do not have any side effects, when used as whole herbs. They are absorbed easily and because of their different characteristics such as tastes, potencies, qualities they influence body and mind.
8) How does Ayurveda look at illness ?
Seeds of illness start in the mind. When the mind is under the influence of Rajas or Tamas it motivates sense organs towards unwholesome objects. There after the sense organs excessively engage in those unwholesome objects and create patterns that repeat automatically. Most of the eating choices made when the mind is under the negative influence disturb the Agni. Digestive toxins formed as a by product of defective metabolism (Agni) provoke Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Digestive toxins (Ama) that are associated with dosha wander throughout the body and settle in different tissues and organs. Upon weakening the tissues and organs give refuge to various disease.

Nature! Ayurveda remedies are all based on the concept that you can eat your therapies. That is why there is such an emphasis on making sure that the herbs, oils, and other substances come from clean sources so that we don’t create more toxins in the body.
