What is Ayurveda

You may have heard that more and more people are turning towards Ayurveda as a cure for their hair loss problems.

What exactly is Ayurveda?, you may be asking.

Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine developed during antiquity and the medieval period, and as such is comparable to pre-modern Chinese and European systems of medicine. It has historical roots in the Indian subcontinent and its therapies are typically based on complex herbal compounds.

Besides being used for general health maintenance and in disease prevention and treatment, Ayurveda is also well known for the effectiveness of its natural, herbal based hair loss treatments.

As a result of its proven effectiveness, Ayurveda is one of the few systems of medicine developed in ancient times that is still widely practiced today!

In the Western world, Ayurveda therapies and practices (which are manifold) have been integrated in general wellness applications and as well as, in some cases, in medical use.

In fact, based on the World Health Assembly resolution on traditional medicine, the WHO has established a traditional medicine strategy, which involves, amongst others, complementary health systems such as Ayurveda. 

This is a recognition that traditional medicine such as Ayurveda contributes significantly to the health status of many communities, and is increasingly used in developed countries as well.
