Ayurveda is about wellness, not illness

Ayurveda philosophy is based on the theory that balance of body, mind and spirit determines the health and wellness of the patient. The focus of treatment is to promote good health and wellness, rather than fight disease. But treatments may be recommended for specific health problems.

Ayurveda is considered a form of CAM or complementary and alternative medicine.

Ayurveda Concepts

According to Ayurvedic theory, everything in the universe is connected. Good health is achieved when your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe. A disruption of this harmony can lead to poor health and sickness.
