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).

Dr. Paul Dugliss is a pioneer in the American medical system being one of the first physicians to integrate the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda into modern healthcare.

As an Internal Medicine resident in the 1990s he was chosen to become Director of a brand new Complementary & Alternative Medicine Center in Westland, Michigan. This experience led him to the realization that teaching people how to access true health could not come from within the current medical paradigm. This in turn led him to begin teaching Ayurveda and the creation of the New World Ayurveda school.

Now Dr. Paul trains people from all backgrounds to cultivate consciousness and understand our unique constitutions in order to create true balance and real health. His students have gone on to become leaders in the field and are part of the movement to empower people to take care of their health with lifestyle based prevention founded on ancient medical systems.

Dr. Paul has written seven books on Ayurveda, has traveled the world as a guest speaker, and is regularly consulted as an expert on a variety of health and consciousness-related projects. He has devoted his life to bringing Ayurveda to the mainstream and continues to bring all of his knowledge to his students with an ever-evolving understanding of what living as a conscious, whole person, rooted in the heart means.
