India’s ancient science of healing is at a conservative estimate, about five thousand years old. It is purely herbal based, its medication made from the roots, the leaves, the sap or even the bark of a tree; from small shrubs and weeds; from spices and their extracts. And sometimes even from precious metals administered in powdered form. No chemicals are used. So there are no harmful or painful side effects.

At CGH Earth they offer Ayurveda to enhance the quality of life by drawing upon the essence of nature. They have wonderful customized treatments administered by experienced physician and trained masseurs and masseuses. You can choose from the various treatment packages available on this website.
