Ayurveda substances and guidance. Ayurveda offers sublime knowledge of life which naturally fosters health and happiness. At the Eumundi Medicine Man, our clinic is based on ancient wisdom, and we usethis as a powerful force for you to employ for your personal health and wellbeing. That is to say, substances such as herbs, foods and medicines are accepted for their specific qualities and actions that they produce within the body. These actions when completed within the body either bring balance and health or imbalance ill-health. Substances are used for their specific energies not for an external name. After all is said and done, knowledge is a great medicine and possibly the greatest of all medicine is your knowledge of medicine. Ayurveda is concerned with an individual understanding life. Therefore Ayurveda, ‘The Science of Life’ is a great blessing and further is the ‘Yoga of Our Whole Existence’.
