According to Ayurveda, we are all born with a specific body type (Prakruti or Nature). Over time, due to errors in diet, lifestyle, thinking, etc., we move away from our true nature and become imbalanced (Vikruti). Gradually, these imbalances produce symptoms, and if allowed to progress, they eventually result in disease. Determining our true nature, and identifying where we are imbalanced, and what created these imbalances is what allows the Ayurvedic Practitioner to give specific recommendations to bring us back to our true balanced state of Being.Patients visit us from all over Greater Los Angeles including:
