    What is Ayurvedic Medicine? at the Somers Library
    Saturday, June 23, 10:30 - 12:30 pm

    What is Ayurvedic Medicine and how does it compare with Western (Allopathic) medicine? Ayurveda is thought to be the world’s oldest healing system and is referred to as “mother of all sciences.” It encompasses life in its totality and epitomizes a true body-mind approach to health and wellness. Ayurveda defines health as a balance of body, mind, and spirit; imbalance results in disharmony and illness can result.
    Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik will explain:

    • How Ayurveda can work with allopathic medicine to achieve balance and harmony
    • The science behind naturopathy (natural therapy) and how it integrates with Ayurveda
    • Ways to determine if you are out of balance
    • Simple things you can do to achieve balance and harmony in your life

    Help yourself feel better through understanding these concepts. Space is limited; please register on our online calendar here or call 914-232-5717.

    Our programs are funded by the Friends of the Somers Library through your donations.
