Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest forms of health and wellbeing and it’s popularity is rapidly growing. Indian sages developed Ayurveda thousands of years before science proved a link between the mind and body. Currently, it is one of the world’s leading medicines in curing tumours, auto immune diseases, cancers and more.

Jo Formosa, a Back2Health Ayurveda medicine practitioner, has seen the results first hand as she has worked with Ayurveda for the past 25 years.

There are five Ayurvedic tools that Jo says are the most effective for great health. These are eating a balanced diet representing every colour as well as the six Ayurvedic tastes (salty, sweet, pungent, sour, bitter and astringent), getting peaceful sleep without alcohol or drugs, strengthening the digestive system to eliminate waste and toxins, understanding your unique body type and it’s specific needs and responding to your body when it expresses comfort or discomfort.

“The benefits are vast and varied, but ultimately Ayurveda treats the root cause of a health issue, not just the symptoms. It can improve your metabolism and digestion, treat obesity and reduce water retention, reduce blood sugar and cholesterol level, control blood pressure and so much more. It really is truly amazing how it works and how the body responds,” Jo says.
