Jyotiṣa (Vedic Astrology)
In Āyurveda, practitioners consult the timeless wisdom of Vedic astrology for hints into an individual’s current physical standing and health, the tendencies the person may have toward certain dis-ease or disorder within the body so that preventative treatments and recommendations may be administered, and remedial actions that can be taken to bring the individual back to their innate path of harmonious physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Roots and Nectar Āyurveda offers incorporation of this profound resource within Āyurvedic consultations, or as a stand-alone reading within which specific questions or concerns can be addressed.
