About Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the knowledge of life. This science originated in India more than 5000 years ago, and was part of the knowledge recorded in the Vedic scriptures. Ayurveda is the world's oldest, most complete Holistic medicine.

Ayurveda is a complete way of life. It is not only about treating sickness - it is about preventing disease and enhancing health, longevity and vitality. The goal of Ayurveda is to achieve harmony and balance. This is attained without drugs or invasive treatments. A balanced diet, herbal remedies, gentle exercise and physical therapies are the main methods used.

According to Ayurveda, there are three subtle energies (doshas) at work that make us look and behave the way we do. These energies are called:

    • Vatta (air)
    • Pitta (fire)
    • Kapha (water)

These three doshas combine in various proportions to give us our unique constitutions. When doshas are not balanced we experience stress, depression, fatigue, disease, and premature aging.

Ayurveda describes a major causative factor in disease and premature aging as the gradual accumulation of waste and toxins (ama) causing imbalance in our doshas, thus leading to dis-ease.

To balance ourselves (body and mind), a system of Rasayana (rejuvenating) and Panchakarma (purification) treatments are used along with herbs, special individual diets, Chiropractic, Yoga and meditation.
