Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine that originated in India over 5000 years ago. The word "Ayurveda" is derived from Sanskrit and means "knowledge of life" or "science of life". It is based on the idea that the mind, body, and spirit are interconnected, and that health and wellness depend on finding balance between these elements.


Ayurveda is gaining popularity in modern practice due to its holistic approach to health and its focus on personalized medicine. It recognizes that each person and animal  is unique and therefore requires an individualized approach to treatment. Ayurvedic practitioners use plant based formulations that eliminate dangerous side effects compared to synthetic drugs.

Ayurvedic medicine also emphasizes disease prevention by promoting a healthy lifestyle and proper diet. In modern practice, Ayurveda is often used in conjunction with conventional medicine to provide a more comprehensive approach to healthcare. It has been found to be effective in managing a variety of conditions such as anxiety, depression, digestive disorders,chronic pain.metabolic and inflammatory issues, and arthritis and joint disorders.




“Ayurveda is not just about nutrition or herbology, it has a unique tool for diagnosis, diagnosis of understanding the human constitution is different from person to person. Each one has a unique metabolic system.”

The doshas

Doshas are the energy patterns that govern the functioning of the body and mind.They are the blueprint for health and disease.The intricate interplay of these energies shapes how the horse's mind-body responds to various internal and external factors, and balances or imbalances in these energies can manifest in distinct characteristics and health patterns.


Every human and animal's constitution is determined at birth and remains unchanged throughout their lifetime. However, the ever-evolving epigenetic factors that influence the doshas' reactions are in a constant state of flux. By adjusting your horse's lifestyle, you can prevent diseases through hormone regulation and immune system stimulation.

Kapha provides structure and stability to the body and mind. When Kapha is in balance, it promotes strength, stability, and a sense of calmness. However, an imbalance in the Kapha dosha can cause physical and mental health problems such as obesity, lethargy, and depression.
