



AYURVEDIC TREATMENT
CENTRES



Ayurvedic treatment is to tackle the root cause of ailments, rather than
simply relieving symptoms associated with the illness.



With western civilization beginning to understand the importance and
benefits of Ayurveda, there is a rush of medical tourists on their way to
hot-spots in India, undergoing extensive treatment along with a
relaxing and extended vacation.



The actual process of taking an Ayurvedic treatment course is very
simple. After a simple diagnosis, you are given a duration for the
course. The course consists of taking medicine prepared from herbs
and powders – Fully natural



The most important advantage that Ayurvedic prescriptions have
over conventional medicine is that there are absolutely no side
effects and merely corrects imbalances within your body, such as
blood sugar levels, improving circulation and cleansing the skin.
YOGA AND MEDITATION


Yoga is a complete knowledge of life that
originated in India before thousands of years,
even before the western world started any forms
of physical and mental exercises.



Meditation is synonymous with India and
spirituality. Meditation is the foundation of Yoga,
which involves exercises of the body and the mind
in sync with each other.



Meditation is designed to carry us beyond our
illusions and help us see and experience things in
its true and natural form.

with rates highest in North, Southeast and



One last piece of advise: Never choose your surgeon
based solely on price. You must understand all aspects
of medical travel to find the very best value...not the
lowest price.
