Santé, the Auroville Institute for Integral Health, is a health center for Aurovilians, Newcomers and registered Guests/Volunteers. It was inaugurated on August 15, 2015.

Santé's approach:

An integrative model of medicine holds to the truth that the human being is more complex than merely the combination of biology and physiology. One way to look at it is that the body is more like a garden than a machine. In a machine, you can separate each individual part from the other and still clearly understand its function. Whereas for a garden to be healthy and to flourish, many multi-dimensional relationships need to be held in balance; the seeds, the soil, proper sunlight, temperature, water availability and nutrition to name a few.
Each patient’s care is individually tailored to his or her needs, requiring the development of ever-evolving, holistic methods of diagnoses and treatments, where the priority is given to diagnostic and therapeutic tools that are non-toxic, minimally invasive, and inexpensive. The patient is also entrusted with a major responsibility for his/her health and well being by leading a healthy, balanced life.[1]
