is an ancient healing science that originated in India 5,000 years
ago. It was originally developed to keep the royal families healthy
and heal yogis after their austerities. Relevant and practical for
today, Ayurvedic recognizes 10 metabolic body types, so all food, herbs,
and therapies are geared to the individual.
Ayurveda strives to be gentle in all things, for treatments to be pleasant, and
to utilize therapy with proper timing so as not to weaken the system or deplete
energy needed for the healing process. Yet the treatments are very powerful in
restoring the body’s balance. Ayurveda goes to the root of any problem,
rather than just treating the surface symptoms. Because of this focus, seemingly
unrelated health problems can be relieved.
Ayurvedic consultations consist of body-type assessment, evaluation of current
imbalances, 32-point pulse analysis, and other observations. A healing program
is then designed, including custom herbal formulas and botanical supports, nutrition,
lifestyle and diet guidelines, gentle detoxification processes and recommendations
of appropriate traditional Ayurvedic therapies

techniques, breathing techniques, supportive diet suggestions, and such therapies
as shirodhara (warm medicated oil on forehead) which turns off all stress receptors
in the body. Other services available through the center are important adjuncts
such as yoga.
Weight Reduction Program
Studies and experience show that dieting destroys
the metabolism, confuses the intelligence of the body, weakens vital force and
causes weight to be added. Ayurveda provides a new perspective to balance the
body back to its proper weight through greater care, deeper nourishment, igniting
the digestive fire, resetting the metabolism and increasing the vital force.
