When one thinks of Sidh, one invokes one of the many names of Lord Ganesha because such a name is bestowed to those who have attained the highest levels of mastery through practiced skill. When one thinks of Ayurveda, one invokes the name of the ancient Indian tradition of attaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Sidh in sanskrit means proven, fact, accomplished. and Ayurveda means knowledge of life as it is composed of Ayur + veda meaning life + knowledge.Here at Sidh Ayurveda , we help a healthy person (swathasya) maintain & protect (rakshanam) his wellness (swasthya) and help a person with imbalance (aaturasya) to achieve balance. “Swathasya swasthya rakshanam Aaturasya vikara prashamanam”. Balance is achieved when “Samadosha samagnischa samadhatu malakriya Prasann aatmendriya manah swasthya itiyabhidiyate” which means that health is attained when all the three functional energy (doshas), digestive strength (agni), tissues (dhatus), excretions (mala) are balanced and when soul (aatma), senses (endriya) and intellect (manah) are in harmony.
