What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a holistic medical system that was founded by the Ancient Rishi in India over 5000 years ago. The literal translation means ‘Ayur'- Life, ‘Veda’- Science or Knowledge- it is a way of life that flows with the cycles of nature. The goal of Ayurveda is to achieve homeostasis and longevity by following these natural cycles so that you can reach your full potential and live in harmony within your natural environment. Ayurveda provides a combination of healthy mind-body lifestyle regimes to help you maintain balance; it also provides you with a roadmap and the signs to look out for when you have gone off course.

 

“Ayurveda teaches that man is a microcosm, a universe within himself... It helps a healthy person maintain health, and a diseased person regain health. It is a medical-metaphysical healing life science. The capability of the individual for self-healing”
— Dr. Vasant Lad
