What is Ayurveda?

Based on ancient texts called the Vedas, Ayurveda is a comprehensive healthcare system from India. It is known as the “Science of Life.” Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of creating and maintaining health through proper diet, daily and seasonal routines, appropriate exercise and lifestyle. Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga and utilizes the same techniques like asana, meditation and pranayama. Its focus is on preventing the imbalances that eventually lead to disease. Health and disease have two locations: the physical body and the mind. By taking proactive steps towards perfect health before symptoms appear, we can often prevent illness.

In Ayurveda, an individualized, multidimensional approach is taken based on unique mind-body constitution. The doshas are the three energies that govern all the functions of the body. When a person understands his/her unique mix of the three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), he/she can adjust diet and lifestyle accordingly to maintain balance and achieve optimal health.
