What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a natural system of medicine that originated in India more than 3,000 years ago! Derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge), Ayurveda translates to the knowledge or science of life.

The system of Ayurveda attributes disease to imbalances in a person’s consciousness. It prescribes treatments unique to the individual’s bodily constitution (Prakriti) based upon the 3 life forces or Doshas: movement (Vata), metabolism (Pitta), and nourishment (Kapha).


What are the benefits of Ayurveda?

The primary focus of following Ayurvedic principles in everyday life (including in diet, sleep habits, daily routines, physical fitness, etc.) is to find and maintain balance between the body, mind, spirit and the environment through an internal purification process accompanied by a dosha-specific diet, herbal remedies, yoga, and meditation. Treatment aids the individual by eliminating impurities, reducing symptoms, increasing metabolism and resistance to disease, quietening mental anguish and bringing harmony to all areas of life. Knowledge of Ayurveda helps one to maintain general health and wellbeing long-term by allowing one to treat imbalances as they occur and before they manifest as greater problems to worry about (such as serious illnesses).
