The medicines at Kensville primarily contain natural products. Ayurveda is closely linked with nature and believes that Mother Nature provides for all our needs. And hence we do not believe in anything synthetic; the products are all natural produced using herbs, shrubs and trees mostly growing in the wild. Where conservation measures are necessary, we rely on cultivated herbs. Hence we do not believe in using only the active principles; we believe in using a plant part in its entirety and thus depend on the synergistic effect of the entire plant or plant part rather than the isolated effect of an active principle. Hence Ayurveda medicines are mostly free from side effects. You can rest assured that the medicines at Kensville are prepared thus, under tight supervision, and with great care and love, to ensure that they only add to your healing effect.
