How Does Treatment Work?

Here in the West, we might be able to maintain a healthy, natural lifestyle by eating natural foods, keeping physically active in a way appropriate for our constitution, and living a lifestyle that serves the balance of our body and mind. Sometimes, though, we get sick. Sometimes something happens that we couldn't have predicted, or we come to an Ayurveda and yoga practice already bearing the burden of an illness or disease that other medical solutions haven't helped us resolve. A staple of the lifestyle outlined on this website is to receive or to self-administer treatments as taught to us by Ayurvedic tradition including herbs, oil massage, and other tools.
