Ayruvedic medicine is an intricate system of healing that originated in India thousands of years ago – it is known as 'the first medicine' because of its ancient traditions, its logical principals and its influence on so many western and eastern healing practices of today. In active practice for over 5000 years Ayruveda is a system of preventative health care that works to achieve your natural balance at a physical, mental and emotional level.
Ayurveda teaches us to look at each individual as a unique makeup of the three doshas (different body types), from which a host of other information can be gleaned. These doshas are Vata (air), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (water) and to thereby design a treatment program that specifically address a persons unique health challenges. When any of the doshas (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) become accumulated, Ayurveda will suggest specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to assist the individual in reducing the dosha that has become excessive. We may also suggest certain herbal supplements to hasten the healing process.
This understanding that we are all unique individuals enables Ayurveda to address not only specific health concerns but also offers explanation as to why one person responds differently than another.
Ayurveda helps maintain health in a person by using the inherent principles of nature to bring the individual back into equilibrium with their true self.
Ayurveda is made up of two Sanskrit words: Ayu which means life and Veda which means the knowledge of. To know about life is Ayurveda.
