It is probably the most ancient of all medical systems and is often termed as the ‘mother of healing methods’.
Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that means “the complete knowledge for a long life”.
Therapies are beneficial to the maintenance of good health and prevention of disease.
They promote a sense of wellbeing through holistic therapy and results are shown in physical strength, better health, mental clarity, inner peace and calmness.
The technique is non-invasive and the teachings intend to highlight to the followers how to create and support harmony between the body and mind, supporting the belief of prevention of disease.
Ayurveda is grounded in the physics of the five basic elements of the universe: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Space. The combination of these elements combines and breaks down to form three body types or doshas.
A Dosha is a term for three mind-body qualities: vata, pitta and kapha. All people are presumed to possess these qualities. Most people are a combination of all three types, though one or two usually predominate.
According to Ayurveda if there is a break down or imbalance in one of these doshas the mind can become toxic. Illness occurs when one or more of the body types become imbalanced.
This is a therapy that can be applied to every aspect of life, and can even become a way of life. The Ayurvedic treatments can be prescribed according to your body type.
Ayurveda also focuses on exercise, yoga, meditation, and massage. Thus body, mind and spirit need to be addressed both individually for good health.
