Sri Lankan Ayurveda has been practiced for more than a thousand years, with it becoming increasingly popular amongst tourists in search of traditional Ayurveda Retreats. Ayurveda focuses on two main aspects – the removal of the causes of an illness and the active promotion of one’s good health and wellbeing.
Ayurveda is unique in its holistic perspective of health, as it incorporates physical, mental and spiritual components. Ayurveda sets out to promote overall health through treating the cause of an illness rather than its symptoms.Continue to
