THE HERBAL APOTHECARY
One of the main ways to bring balance to the body in Ayurveda involves the use of Dravyas - medicinal substances. According to the Charaka Samhita, the best medicines are those that are abundantly available, rich in their pharmacological qualities, versatile in their pharmaceutical forms, and efficacious. At Intrepid Ayurveda, we hold dearly to these principles when choosing our herbs and formulating for our patients.
When recommending herbs and herbal products for our clients, we do our best to source domestically from companies with only the best quality control, favoring organically grown plant medicines. Because of our modern ecological challenges, we're also doing our best to minimize plastic packaging. If you wish to bring your own jar for your herbal formulas, you are more than welcome!
