What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient medicine with a focus on creating energetic balance between mind, body, and spirit as well as regulation in order to create and maintain health. By integrating foods, herbs, proper breathing, meditation, nature, and spiritual transformation, Ayurveda is a holistic healing system that promotes health and wellness rather than suppress disease symptoms.
What is the history of Ayurveda?
A traditional medicine of India, Ayurveda has a legacy that spans more than 5,000 years. It was first described in The Vedas, which are a broad collection of ancient spiritual texts that originated in India. Guiding principles for Ayurvedic physicians were codified by sages and scientists through observation of natural laws. The principles and concepts have been passed down for hundreds of generations. Through this time, Ayurvedic therapies have been applied, modified, refined, and optimized to keep up with the changing world, but still maintain the fundamental principles and adherence to natural laws.
What is the philosophy of Ayurveda?
In today’s world, Ayurveda serves as the bridge to a shared past. It guides us to live in close relationship with our own nature—optimizing the powerful healing resources of the body, mind, and soul from within. Living in this close, balanced relationship helps to develop the awareness of our deepest, heart-felt desires and helps us in finding a soulful and heart-centered way to express these desires in our lives.
The Ayurvedic culture draws us closer to the seat of empowerment through insightful knowledge and time-tested therapies. This practice will grant clients individualized means to express this power for the benefit of self-health and health for others.
Additionally, Ayurveda sees divinity and beauty in nature and recognizes humans as an integral part. Thus, its principles serve as guide posts for balancing human physiology and psychology to help attune the individual with nature. Ayurveda supports the expression of our own inner divinity and beauty, and therapies are individualized to match the nature of the individual to specifically help cultivate health, balance, and happiness from the inside out.
