Ayurvedic Clinic & Dispensary
15 Dundonald Road, Wimbledon

Telephone 020 8543 6826

Wimbledon’s Ayurvedic Clinic specialises in providing authentic Ayurvedic consultations with “qualified” Ayurvedic doctors in keeping with the Buddhist and Hindu tradition.  During an Ayurvedic session you will apparently discover the key factors governing your health.  It is claimed that knowing your ‘Prakruti’ or constitution will enable you learn how to improve the way you look after yourself. You will identify your particular strengths and weaknesses according to your constitutional-type and the diet you should follow to complement your ‘Prakruti’.

It is claimed that Ayurvedic formulas have been used for generations. They apparently contain some of the most powerful medicinal plants known to man although these ancient plant-formulas are also said to be safe, non-addictive and with no side-effects. The medicines sold through this dispensary are made in Sri Lanka; some of their specially formulated oils can take many months to prepare and can contain over 100 different medicinal plants.  All their medicines come in glass jars or bottles to ensure they are free from plastic contamination.
