Ayurveda is regarded as the oldest surviving healthcare system in the world.

The use of its practices and formulas date back more than 5000 years. And while over

the years many āyurvedic practices have lived in Indian homes as grandma’s remedies, today, this ancient healthcare knowledge is being widely acknowledged and revived as a dynamic science of holistic healing and health. Understanding Ayurveda basics Ayurveda is the science of total wellness of the body, mind and soul. It is said that creating this wellness is the balance of three bio-energies that all of us have. Bioenergies (physical, mental and emotional energies) called the doshas. Vata, Pitta, Kapha. It is understood that these three doshas derive from the five elements—that all ancient religions recognize as life giving forces—earth, air, fire, water, and ether or the spirit or sky. Plants, animals, humans – all living beings are made up of these three doshas. But different doshas are dominant in each of us in different phases of life. So total wellness means achieving and maintaining a balance between these doshas. Imbalances reflect in minor irritations of the body and mind and if neglected may cause major aliments. Hair and skin related problems like premature greying of hair, dry skin, pigmentation, breakouts, etc. are considered signs of these imbalances. Health and beauty in Ayurveda relies on re-establishing the balance between the doshas and freeing the body of ama (toxins) and restoring cellular nutrition and vitality.
[/av_textblock] [av_toggle_container initial='0' mode='accordion' sort=''] [av_toggle title='Ayurvedic Herbs – powerhouse of natural healing and nutrition' tags=''] Curative and restorative therapy in āyurveda is a combination of diet, āyurvedic medicine and physical practices such as breathing and yoga. And within āyurvedic medicine, the main resource for remedies is the selection of the right herbs and their processing into natural healing and nutritive formulations with no side effects. It is these āyurvedic herbs that play an important role in rectifying the dosha imbalances and providing vital nutrition. And like us, herbs too are made up of different dominant doshas. And when used in appropriate formulations they restore imbalances. Ayurvedic cosmetics rely on the external application of these herbal formulations in the form of water or oil based extracts. [/av_toggle] [av_toggle title='Getting the Best from Herbs – Total Ayurveda from SoulTree' tags=''] In a market increasingly flooded with handmade, āyurvedic, herbal products what makes one product more āyurvedic or more effective than the others? It is power of healing and nutrition they pack. And this depends on three things. 1. The origin of herbs 2. The quality of herbs 3. The process of deriving effective āyurvedic extracts from herbs. Origin: Where herbs grow, matter While āyurvedic herbs grow across India their properties may differ from region to region. Choosing the herb from the right origin ensures maximum efficacy. For example, we use wild aamla from Himalayan forests – wild aamla is considered more effective in āyurvedic applications than those cultivated in orchards. SoulTree sources herbs such as wild aamla, chamomile, turmeric, and tulsi from NGOs that work with rural women and farmers, who cultivate as well as collect these ethically from the forests. In India the Himalayan region, by and large, is considered the best source of herbs since ancient times. Benchmarks: Keeping the herbal quality high The quality of herbs ensures how much goodness [/av_toggle] [/av_toggle_container] [/av_one_full][/av_section]
