What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a life science – “Ayur” meaning life and “Veda” meaning science. At around 5000 years, it’s the oldest continuously practiced system of self-care and self-healing.
Based on the idea that human beings are as much a part of nature as the elements, Ayurveda treats our mind and body as elemental energies: wind, fire and earth.
Each of these energies represents what is known as a dosha, or type. There are three Ayurvedic doshas: their Sanskrit names are Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth).
The balance of these elemental forces shapes the nature of our body and mind. Although we all have the three doshas within us, most of us have one or two elements that dominate. Vata dominant people tend to be energetic, agile, enthusiastic, and creative. If Pitta predominates, we tend to be focused, intelligent, and goal-oriented, with plenty of strength. When Kapha takes the lead, we tend to be calm, steady, and nurturing, with plenty of stamina.
Ayurvedic treatments include food, massage, oils, and yoga.
Benefits of Ayurveda
The benefits of Ayurveda are many. Central to it all is the idea of restoring and maintaining balance. A balanced Ayurvedic diet plan and lifestyle soothe and balance your mind as well as your body, enabling better concentration and memory alongside glowing skin, revitalized energy levels and an enhanced ability to handle stress, and relax.
Ayurveda can also be used to treat specific conditions like diabetes, eczema, PCOS, depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, thyroid issues and menopause hot flashes.
Ultimately Ayurveda empowers you to connect with and trust your inner voice and to be proactive about creating a healthy and fulfilling life.
