Ayurveda (eye-yer-vay-duh) is a leading alternative medicine and the art of natural healthy living. “Ayur” (life) “Veda” (knowledge) is commonly described as the science of health, awareness, and self-realization. It is one of the oldest holistic healing systems originating about 5,000 years ago.
Known as a complete wellness system, Ayurveda is a nature-based personalized approach to health, and understanding of your unique mind-body type. Ayurveda focuses on prevention of disease & the preservation of health by establishing harmony & balance through diet/nutrition, yoga/exercise, meditation, natural therapies & a daily routine to help achieve and maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. Ayurveda uses remedies that are all-natural and treat the root cause of the disease, rather than just the symptoms.
Ayurveda views a person as a whole, taking into account not only the physical body but also a person’s mental and emotional characteristics. Ayurveda is the understanding that health is established and preserved through balance and counterbalances. When the root cause of an illness, disease or imbalance is corrected, symptoms improve. Ayurveda believes that health is the expression of a balanced relationship between body, mind, spirit and environment.
