Ayurveda, "the Science of Life': is a system of holistic healthcare which has evolved through some 4,500 years of time-tested experience in India. It uses a range of natural methods of health care including meditation, exercise, massage, dietary recommendations, as well as daily and seasonal disciplines.
By combining these methods, a state of physical and psychological well-being is promoted by balancing the mind, body and behaviour in harmony with nature and the surrounding environment. According to Ayurveda, good health depends on the balanced state of the human body, which consists of five elements: Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Aether (Spirit).
An imbalance, due to an abnormal increase or depletion of these elements causes ill-health. Under Ayurveda, all mental and physical functions of a human body are controlled by three "Doshas" or energies — Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When these energies are working together in tandem, good health would be maintained. But, if they were not working in harmony, illness would result. These Ayurvedic Teas are especially formulated by Lochan Tea, Ltd. of India, according to Traditional Ayurvedic principles, to enhance the balances or correct the imbalances which afflict mankind due to the strains and stresses of living in the modern world.
