The word Ayurveda translates into ‘knowledge of life’, where ‘Ayur’ means ‘life’ while ‘Veda’ means ‘knowledge’ in Sanskrit. It is a 5000-year-old ancient system of healing — with its roots in ancient India — that is recognized around the globe.
Ayurveda goes beyond just curing diseases and aims to bring back and restore the unique state of balance or equilibrium of a person. It regards the body, mind, and spirit as individual elements and has unique methods for working on each of them. Furthermore, it promotes the idea of living a holistic, healthy life in harmony with your inner self, with nature, and also the environment. To do so, it employs a unique approach that combines diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes.

Ajwain (Carom Seeds)
Ajwain is a strong digestive and nerve stimulant. It helps in weight loss by expelling deep-seated toxins from your body and also heals painful joints.
Ashwagandha (Winter Cherry)
Ashwagandha enhances vitality. It helps your body manage stress more effectively, lower your levels of anxiety, and improves your sleep.
Brahmi (Water Hyssop)
Brahmi is the best herb for the brain and nervous system, as it balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain and decalcifies the pineal gland, and removes toxins and blockages from the nervous system. It helps with depression, enhances intelligence, and improves memory and concentration. Moreover, this herb also helps in better hair growth.
Cardamom, sometimes referred to as the “queen of spices”, has been part of Ayurvedic medicine since ancient times. It is a natural tranquilizer that brings clarity and joy to the mind and helps to control blood pressure levels. Inhaling cardamom essential oil may also increase the uptake of oxygen into the lungs during exercise.
Cumin enhances the digestive system and metabolism, as it helps the body in nutrient absorption. This herb cleanses the reproductive organs and improves milk secretion, hence, it can be especially useful for new mothers.
Licorice is a rejuvenating herb that rejuvenates all systems of the body, soothes the throat, and reduces acidity. It calms the mind and nurtures the spirit.
Manjistha (Indian Madder)
It has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to clean the blood and liver, lowering disorders in the skin, and helps clear acne. Manjistha also cools and detoxifies the blood cleanses as well as regulates liver and kidney functions.
Neem (Indian Lilac)
Neem is one of the most powerful blood purifiers and detoxifiers in Ayurvedic herbology. It is ideal for healing wounds and curing skin diseases. It also works wonders for eczema and psoriasis skin flare-ups and is useful for joint and muscle pain.
Triphala (Indian Gooseberry, Beleric, and Chebulic Myrobalan)
It is an Ayurvedic remedy consisting of three small medicinal fruits such as amla, bibhitaki, and haritaki. Triphala reduces inflammation caused by arthritis, and functions as a natural laxative — reducing constipation, abdominal pain, and flatulence while improving the frequency and consistency of bowel movements in people with gut disorders.
Turmeric purifies the blood and the channels of the body. It improves the skin's complexion, bringing circulation and nutrition to the skin. It is anti-inflammatory and is a perfect remedy to treat acne-prone skin.
