Ayurveda Spiral of Wellness

Ayurveda is considered to be the oldest healing science having a holistic approach to health for helping people live long, healthy, and well-balanced lives. The term Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskrit words ayus, meaning life or lifespan, and veda, meaning knowledge and has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years. Ayurveda is to prevent and treat illness by maintaining balance in the body, mind, and consciousness through proper drinking, diet, and lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.

The herb spiral was built so the doctors have at hand the herbs they use to treat their guests. The herb spiral was chosen also as it represents a natural pattern of life and for ease of care and maximizing space available. 

Using natural resources

Many of the herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine have antioxidant effects, which may help protect against long-term illnesses such as heart disease and arthritis. A vegetarian diet is often recommended.

Pattern of nature

The goal of Ayurvedic medicine is to prevent diseases. Combining yoga with an Ayurvedic herbal remedy containing winter cherry (Withania somnifera), boswellia (Boswellia serrata), and turmeric (Curcuma longa) may reduce pain and disability in people with arthritis.

Building rubble for drainage

Gguggul (Commiphora mukul), a traditional Ayurvedic medication used to treat high cholesterol and is widely used in India appearing to block production of cholesterol in the liver, lowering cholesterol levels. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) seeds can lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides (fats in the blood), and raise HDL “good” cholesterol levels. Its effects seem to come from its ability to lower the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine, and may be related to the high fiber content of the seed. The high fiber content of fenugreek seeds may also help control blood sugar if you have diabetes.

Other Ayurvedic herbs are being studied as treatments for Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, asthma, dementia, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), herpes, high blood pressure, Parkinson's disease, perimenopausal problems, and premenstrual syndrome, among many other conditions. Ayurvedic herbs combined with conventional medications may also be helpful for acne, chronic constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, and uterine fibroids.
