How Ayurveda is different to Western medicine

Modern medicine attempts to treat and remove the symptoms of illness, rather than treat the person suffering from the symptoms. This stems from the view that we are all more or less the same. 
In Ayurveda, the human body is considered to be a combination of five basic elements. These elements are influenced by three vital forces and the balance between these forces is seen as the key to good health. Each person is recognized as an individual and therefore receives a personal treatment and healing plan.
For example, we believe taking synthetic medicine, which can have harmful side-effects, is not a viable long-term solution for chronic conditions. Rather, we believe it’s better to focus on the whole person to achieve healing and maintain long-lasting good health.
