In Ayurveda, the woman is considered to be “Shakti”; the Mother and Source of creation, in whose lap all of civilization is cradled. When we speak about “women’s health” we understand that this encompasses many different issues during the different stages of her life. Every woman goes through a series of profound changes during her lifetime.
Whatever the situation, women must always take into consideration their constitutional needs regarding diet, lifestyle and rest. Ayurveda provides a rich and thorough body of herbal medicinal knowledge as a powerful tool to achieve this balance, when needed. It is said that when we restore balance, we are happy in our minds, healthy in our bodies and satisfied in our lives!
