AYURVEDA
    Ayurveda is foremost known science of medicine. Literally means science of life. It teaches us the way life should be lived. It is 5000 yr old time tested science which has potential not only to cure various chronic and acute diseases but also teaches how to prevent them. Ayurveda heals a person not only physically but mentally and spiritually also.

    Seasons & Doshas!
    The Tridosha Theory in Ayurveda classifies all living beings into three main categories. The diagnosis & treatment of any ailment is based on this theory. All Plants are medicinal.
    Vatta Dosha accumulates during the day or dehydrating heat of the summer. It becomes aggravated during the rainy season which causes weakened digestion, acidic atmospheric conditions & gas produced from the earth.
    Pitta Dosha accumulates during the rainy season due to the acidic conditions of the atmosphere & a weakened digestion. It is aggravated during autumn when the heat returns. This occurs after the cooling spell of the rainy season.
    Kapha Dosha accumulates during the cold season due to the cold and damp caused by the winds, clouds and rain. It gets aggravated during the spring when the warm weather liquefies the accumulating kapha.
