How does Ayurveda work?

The main purpose of our organism is to keep us alive. That is its function, its duty. Ayurveda's main objective is to balance the doshas according to your original constitution. When the doshas are in balance, the organism can function properly. Ayurveda focuses on removing the underlying cause of symptoms, which are the result of doshic imbalance. For that purpose, Ayurveda uses medicinal herbs, cooking methods, rejuvenating therapies, and daily routines (called dinacharya). A diet and lifestyle in harmony with your original constitution will strengthen your body, mind, and consciousness, and prevent disorders at all levels.

 How effective is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a very effective system of alternative medicine that is slowly being recognized in the West. It is one if the primary systems of health care in India, and has been used for thousands of years for all sorts of ailments and disorders. Its full effectiveness will depend on various considerations, including your age and state of health, how much effort you are willing to put into making the necessary changes toward better health, and how disciplined you are with taking your formulas and following the recommended guidelines. Since an Ayurveda regime is very individualized, its results will depend on individual factors and on follow-up treatments, since adjustments and close supervision are absolutely necessary to obtain optimal results.

 How soon will I see any results with Ayurveda?

That would depend on your particular state of health, your lifestyle, and how disciplined you are in following an Ayurvedic regime. Often times, following an Ayurvedic regime can have rather quick effects, but since Ayurveda is a holistic system and herbs act more gently and synergistically, patience and self-effort are important. As far as diet and lifestyle changes are concerned, we believe that slow change is lasting change, since trying to make radical changes all at once can often times become overwhelming. Remember that true healing and optimal health is a journey, not a one-shot deal.
