Ayurveda simply means the science or wisdom of life and healthy living. It is a 5000 year old system of medicine that has stood the test of time
Ayurvedic Medicine or Ayurveda (Ayu= life, Veda= science or knowledge), literally means the science or knowledge of life and healthy living
It is the oldest known medical system in the world that focuses on disease prevention as well as optimizing health in a healthy individual by correcting body imbalances you may be suffering from
In Ayurveda we believe in finding the root cause of your health issues whether physical, mental, emotional and resolving the root cause for lasting benefits rather than coating the symptoms with band aid of pills
Ayurveda believes that each individual is unique being caused by the unique proportions of the Doshas or bioenergies Vata (Wind energy) Pitta (Sun energy) and Kapha (Moon energy)
The dominance of these doshas determine your unique constitution or your Prakriti (true nature). Any deviation from this be understood as imbalance or Vikriti which then leads to disease in the body, mind or emotions
