What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a 5000 year old healing system which means the "science of life".

It originates in India from the ancient Vedic culture. Yoga comes from the same body of wisdom that Ayurveda originates. Globally there is an increased interest in this system of healing as Yoga has grown in popularity.

It emphasizes prevention and treatment through diet, herbs, various lifestyle techniques and mind-body awareness. Knowledge of Ayurveda helps one to create the much needed harmony between the body, mind and consciousness based on one's constitution.

Each person has a unique constitution based on their physical, mental and emotional characteristics and Ayurveda can assess this and provide solutions to help one increase their vitality. Ayurveda takes into consideration what are called the "Doshas" which is a Sanskrit word referring to the three different energies that circulate in the human being and combination of these energies called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These energies represent the elements of air, earth, fire, water and ether in various combinations. An excess or deficiency can cause imbalances. Ayurveda seeks to bring back balance through the various treatments.

Many different internal and external factors can upset the health of a person some of which includes: diet choices, seasons and weather, physical stress, trauma, emotional state, relationships, work, exposure to toxins and unhealthy environments.
