FREE – Incorporating Ayurveda to find balance amidst cancer (or it’s resulting side effects)
Ayurveda has a deep understanding of how the causes of imbalances relate to the effects experienced on different levels of the person: Physical, psychological, spiritual. Treatments in Ayurveda therefore treat the person as a whole.
