Ayurveda means the “science of life”. This is a holistic system of health that is being practised since ancient times.

Welcome to Rishi Herbal

According to Ayurveda, health is not only defined as freedom from diseases or ailments but also it is a state of physical, mental and spiritual balance. The ancient sage, Acharya Sushruta, defined a healthy person as one who has balanced doshas (humours that make up the body), agni (digestive and metabolic processes), dhatus (body tissues), malas (excreta), kriyas (bodily functions), and is happy with a balanced mind and spirit. Ayurveda embraces the belief that the path to treatment is establishing a balance between the body and mind. Thus, ayurvedic treatments focus on changing the lifestyle and food habits of a person to prevent diseases along with shaman chikitsa (pacification treatment) and shodhan chikitsa (purification treatment) to restore balance in the doshas.

Trisutra: The three basic objectives of Ayurveda

The most important aim of Ayurveda is to maintain a disease free state so that a person can enjoy optimal health. This falls under the category of prevention.

Hetu (cause): This comprises the etiological and causative factors, the presence or absence of which determines the health of an individual.
