Have you ever wondered why we become sick or what is the end cause of disease? Understanding this is very profound and yet simple: once we understand the cause of disease we can begin heal. Ayurveda teaches us that all disease begins when we are living out of harmony with our environment. When we take in inappropriate impressions from our environment through any of our senses, we choose to weaken the body and create an internal environment which supports the creation of disease. We could disrupt our body's internal energy flow. The Ayurveda studies program offered teaches all the principles of living in harmony with the environment.
Healing through Ayurvedic Medicine involves all five senses. Through taste, we utilize proper diet and herbs. Through sight, we utilize proper color and beauty. Through smell, we utilize aromatherapy. Through sound, we utilize music and sound energies. Finally, through our skin we take in specially prepared herbal oils and receive ayurvedic massage (abhyanga). In addition to five sense therapy, Ayurveda advocates the periodic removal of accumulated toxins and food residues through specialized purification procedures called panchakarma.

Holy Basil(Tulsi) - A Herb for Diabetics
Compounds in Holy Basil have been shown in clinical trials to nourish the pancreas and specifically help generate healthy new beta cells. These beta cells are the body's insulin-production factories, and insulin lowers blood sugar.
Holy Basil helps other cells in your body open up their receptor for insulin. This lightens the load on your liver and adrenal glands. You may also notice fewer cravings for sweets.
