Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term and translates to mean the science of life.

Ayurveda is the oldest medical institution in the world. A 5000+ year old way of life that focuses on the complete re- balance of the body with prevention of disease and illness to the body. Originating from India, Ayurveda connects to knowing that, " Everything in the Universe is Medicinal." 

This system of individualized medicine looks at the window of the postpartum period as a time where greatest healing and rejuvenation is needed for mother. There may not be another time in one’s life where slowing down is more necessary.
