Managing Pain With Ayurveda

Managing chronic pain is the number one reason many people visit a medical doctor. Often times the pain is chronic and medical doctors will offer drugs, surgery, and/or physical therapy. A common reality for many people is the pain does not go away and interferes with their daily activities.

AYURVEDA has many classic herbal formulas that offer effective relief from all types of pain, inflammation, swelling, and reduced mobility. Classical herbal formulas target many conditions and work best when taken internally and applied externally.
