The transformation in the way of life that has happened over the last few decades have made man susceptible to a number of diseases. The growing incidence of these diseases is attributed to our lifestyle choices and hence is named lifestyle diseases.

The major lifestyle diseases or conditions that have assumed the proportions of a major health concern include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, elevated cholesterol levels, depression, anxiety, stress and so on.
The powers of Ayurveda and associated treatments have been underrated for long. However, with growing concerns of side effects of the proclaimed modern medicine, people have started realising the value of the gem, whose potential we are yet to unravel.
With treatment techniques that not only treats or manages lifestyle diseases, but also promote an overall wellness of the body, Ayurveda offers a treatment regimen based on nature and hence eliminates the scope of side effect.
