- Herbal supplements,
- Ashta-karma, and
- Home remedies.
These six instruments act like pillars that hold and support the well-being of your physical, mental and emotional body. To create and maintain balance and harmony in your life, the ancient art and science of Siddha-Veda offers simple and precise guide lines.
Some people may also think that healthy diets are less convenient and more expensive. This may be true in the short term, but in the long run by continuing to consume the kinds of toxic foods and the gigantic portions, we are all paying a heavy price that can no longer be ignored and the occurrence of so many preventable diseases.The subject of food is not only a cultural part of everyone’s upbringing but also a highly emotional aspect of our lives. Whether it is the process of purchasing the ingredients or preparing the food or it is simply remembering the tastes and the aromas associated with memories of holidays and sitting around with family and friends. These memories shape the very foundation of our approach to health and life style and influence the choices we make on daily basis. Also our environment plays a very important role in the choices we make. What’s being offered in the supermarkets and the food trends emphasized through media and the press sways us in a certain direction. The flood of information affects our belief system and creates different emotions in connection to food and the overall well-being.
