Sri Lankan Ayurveda & Herbal Products

Ayurveda is an ancient authentic medical system which has been originated in India, more than 5000 years ago. In Sri Lanka, it is practiced harmonized with Sri Lankan Traditional Medicine, which evolved from pre-historic era and currently operates as “Sri Lankan Ayurveda”, with a distinct identification separate from Indian Ayurveda.

Ayurveda is the hugely popular art of healthy living, which has transcended all cultures. It is formed from the root words of Ayu (life) and Veda (science); being one of the oldest forms of medical science, today it has gained wide popularity amongst consumers worldwide.

Ayurveda treats not to the symptoms of a disease but to the roots of its cause. It helps individuals to strengthen their immune system by way of treating the body, mind and spirit of a person as a whole entity. It works under the philosophy that mind and body are connected to each other and, to cure any disease both these segments should be treated taken as a whole. It concerns the unique healing practices accepted by the Buddhist philosophy as well as other religions.

Sri Lanka is well-equipped with qualified indigenous medical practitioners as well as rare diversity of natural herbs used for Ayurvedic medicine with dynamic healing powers. Sri Lankan Ayurveda is strengthened by two government institutions affiliated to the main Universities to offer indigenous medical degrees, as well as registered traditional physicians whose sophisticated traditional medicinal knowledge inherited from generation to generation.
