Ayurveda, developed over 3,000 years ago in India, is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It’s based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment and yogic breathing. It’s focus is largely preventative, to promote good health, not fight disease; but, treatments may be geared towards specific health problems.
Ayurvedic herbs are a key component of ayurveda. In general, practitioners use herbs to cleanse the body, boost defence against disease, and keep the mind, body and spirit in balance.
Ayurveda uses well-balanced combinations of plants in synergistic formulas. The art of combining is based on strict principles. Many of the herbs influence health in more than one way. The main ingredient is the herb the action of which is closest to the required treatment result. Some of the other herbs enhance desired action while others are added to help their assimilation by means of stimulating digestion. Certain herbs stimulate cleansing processes so there is to be no accumulation of toxins.
