Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurveda, like Chinese Medicine describes health as balance and ill health as imbalance.  Ayurveda restores the balance and hamony of an individual which results in good health, self healing and longevity.  Ayurveda’s unique approach is one of understanding your individual mind/body constitution. These constitutions have particular qualities or attributes which characterize their effects on the human body and can be described as physical, psychological, energetic and emotional strengths and weaknesses.  When you understand your individual constitution you can profoundly influence your predisposition to health, general and specific sensitivity to illness, and responsiveness to various forms of therapy.


Ayurveda has significantly contributed to how we currently practice medicine.  Here are a few examples: 

  • The drug Reserpine is extracted from the plant Rauwolfia Serpentina.  Rauwolfia Serpentina is still used today in India to control hypertension.
  • Gugul is an herbal remedy widely prescribed in Ayurveda that binds to cholesterol in the GI tract and can effectively control hyperlipidimia without the negative side effects of statins.
  • Sushruta was an Ayurvedic physician and is considered to be the father of modern surgery.
