Ayurveda is a natural system of health and healing that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago.
As the oldest continuously-practiced system of medicine in the world, Ayurveda is vibrant, dynamic, relevant, and usable — a thriving complement to allopathic and East Asian medicine. Interest in Ayurveda is growing worldwide, and modern science is beginning to pay attention to these techniques for healing the body, mind, and spirit. In practice and popularity, Ayurveda is gaining momentum as a world medicine.
Literally translated as the “science of life,” Ayurveda is first and foremost a system of preventative medicine, focused on guiding you to a deeper level of self-awareness so that you’re making choices that are truly right for your physical body, mind and spirit. Those who practice Ayurveda benefit from a deeper understanding of their own oneness with the great rhythm and cycle of nature.
In its approach to healing chronic and acute conditions, Ayurveda directs us to choose health-promoting measures such as eating a diet in tune with our body type, and living by a daily routine which changes gently with the seasons. Ayurveda also offers mind – body – spirit rejuvenation and immunity enhancement through restorative bodywork techniques and periodic cleanses.
Ayurveda is deeply concerned with the concept of true balance. It invites us to examine our lives to see if the causes of imbalance lie there. Are you feeling fulfilled in your relationships, career, and home life? Are you satisfied with your level of physical activity? Do you feel a sense of spiritual purpose and connectedness?
It is said that “Health is not the source of wellbeing; it is our wellbeing that is the source of our health.”
