Ayurveda is world’s oldest holistic healing system originating from India. Its theories and remedies for a healthy mind and body have endured for more than 5,000 years. According to historical accounts, ancient rishis cognized the system of Ayurveda through direct contact with nature while in deep meditation. It became a knowledge and tradition passed down from generation to generation. The term Ayurveda in Sanskrit translates to ‘the science of life’ as it teaches us the art of living in harmony with nature in order to enjoy optimal health and happiness.
What makes Ayurveda unique from other healing systems is its emphasis on personalized wellness. Ayurveda believes the whole universe, including humans, are made up of five elements: space, wind, fire, water, and earth. Each person is born with an unique combination of these five elements expressed in three Doshas: Vata (space + wind), Pitta (fire + water), and Kapha (water + earth). Just like your DNA, your unique constitution influences all aspects of your life including appearances, personalities, habits, health and disease tendencies. By understanding your unique constitution, you can make the best choices in terms of food, exercise, daily routine, rejuvenation and detoxification therapies, to achieve profound mental and physical healing.
