Ayurveda1

Ayurveda means “Knowledge of Life” or “Science of Life”. This ancient system of medicine, possibly the oldest in the world, focuses on the balancing of mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda is primarily focused on prevention of disease and promotion of good health through proper diet, lifestyle and emotional wellbeing. Ayurveda does treat diseased patients but the beauty of Ayurveda is its simplicity. It simply teaches us a way of living that, if done correctly, promotes longevity and overall wellness. The U.S. categorizes Ayurveda as a form of alternative or complementary medicine.

The theory of Ayurveda is that everything in the universe is connected, living or not. Ayurveda typically treats disease as a psychosomatic disturbances, rather the belief that disease is brought on by outside factors. Health is achieved when mind, body and spirit are in harmony with the universe. Disruptions in this harmonic flow are what can lead to sickness and poor health. In Ayurveda we believe that anything that affects your physical, spiritual or emotional well-being will cause you to be out of balance with the harmony of the universe. Examples of such disruptions are negative emotions, climate changes, seasonal changes, age, injuries and even genetic or birth defects. See how bringing Ayurveda into your life can bring about profound shifts in consciousness, health and most importantly result in a happier you.

Ayurvedic Approach

Ayurvedic medicine is a comprehensive, time-tested system of medical therapies, combining nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, massage therapy and bodywork, internal cleansing and immune-system support. Ayurveda names three fundamental elemental substances or energies present in all living things, the doshas (called Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and states that a balance of the doshas results in health, while imbalance results in disease. These primary forces are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Each of us has a unique proportion of these three forces that shapes our nature. If Vata is dominant in our system, we tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable. If Pitta predominates in our nature, we tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented and we have a strong appetite for life. When Kapha prevails, we tend to be easy-going, methodical, and nurturing. Although each of us has all three forces, most people have one or two elements that predominate.

An important objective of Ayurveda is to identify a person’s ideal state of balance, determine where they are out of balance, and offer interventions using diet, herbs, aromatherapy, massage treatments, cleansing treatments, music, and meditation to reestablish balance.
