FIND YOUR BALANCE.

Ayurvedic
Medicine

My IBS made it so I could never truly be comfortable in any social situation. Ayurvedic healing has restored my balance and confidence.

Mind.
Body.
Spirit.

Don’t just manage disease or treat illness; protect your health with Ayurveda. Originating in India 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda is a natural and holistic system of medicine that uses (and literally means) the science of life to treat the mind, body, and spirit.

Ayurvedic healing involves balancing your doshas—energies derived from the elements (air, water, fire, earth, and space)—that govern body functions. Each dosha is composed of a combination of the elements.

The optimal state of health (prakruthi) is achieved when doshas are balanced in their natural proportions. When a particular dosha is increased or decreased, an imbalance is present. SCU’s Ayurveda providers use herbs, diet, lifestyle recommendations, specialized Ayurveda therapies, and yoga, to help people like you re-establish harmony and achieve greater happiness, health, and balance.
