Garlic: The Herbal Wonder Drug

Shirodhara – Silencer of the Mind
Dr. Yogitha Bali
Shirodhara is an ancient Ayurvedic healing practice performed in India for over 5,000 years. The word shirodhara breaks down into two ideas: “shiro,” meaning head, and “dhara,” which means flow. Together they form a concept that aims to bring physical and emotional balance by rejuvenating the spirit and preserving health. This is achieved through a relaxing technique in which warmed oil is poured over the forehead for an extended period of time.
