Ayurvedic medicine originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is known as the world’s oldest healing science. Ayurvedic medicine has flourished over time and has been the foundation for modern systems of medicine. Founded on the belief that illnesses are due to a weakness in the body that allows for a disease to take hold so, therefore, if one were to stay in perfect health, they would naturally be immune. Ayurvedic herbs are designed to help support the body’s natural healing functions so that the body can naturally heal on its own as it was made to do. Ayurvedic herbs help strengthens the body's systems from within to help restore wellness to the body by treating the underlying causes of imbalance while relieving symptoms. Ayurvedic herbs are intended by nature to be accepted by your body as natural healing support instead of unknown intruders likes many synthetic drugs are now found to be.

Ayurvedic medicine (or “Ayurveda”) is a type of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) that originated in India thousands of years ago and is now being brought into the western world (even the World Health Organisation adapted it’s definition of health to fit with Ayurvedic teachings!).
The goal of Ayurvedic is to restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit, through cleanses using herbal medicine, exercise, breathing, meditation, physical therapy and more.
Thanks to Vita Health (one of New Zealand's leading online retailers of natural personal care products), Ayurvedic herbs are now available in New Zealand and overseas!
Benefits of Ayurvedic Medicine
Although there is still very little knowledge of Ayurvedic in NZ (and the rest of the western world), many of the principles and practices of Ayurveda have been used in “conventional medicine” for decades. For example, Ayurvedic idea of psychological and physical change in the body with the seasons is now characterised as SAD – seasonal affective disorder.
More recently, there has been additional medical acknowledgement of the benefits of Ayurvedic practices including yoga, meditation, and massages, including stress reduction, increased energy, reduced anxiety and reduced memory loss.
Some studies have found that Ayurvedic practices may also be beneficial in the treatment of a range of mental health problems as well as addiction. In addition to this, Ayurvedic herbs (including garlic, ginger, turmeric, and neem), are now recognised as antioxidant-boosters, and are seen to be beneficial for heart health.
Ayurvedic herbs are traditionally used to treat imbalance and cleanse the systems, organs, and tissues of the body. Herbs can be used individually or as a combination, and can be taken internally (through powders, tablets, teas, and jams), or applied externally as pastes, oils, and soaps.
It is important to tailor remedies according to your own health, age, and the current season. Ayurvedic herbs can be used to treat symptoms and underlying imbalances affecting;
- Digestive system and metabolism
- Hormonal imbalances
- Brain – including mind, memory, and sleep
- Skin and hair
- Heart and circulation
- Lungs and breathing
- Liver function
- Reproductive system
- Skeletal system - bones and joints
- Muscular system
