means “The Knowledge of Life”. Practiced for over 5,000 years and originating from India, Ayurveda has assisted millions of individuals in journeying back to optimal health. Ayurveda views health and disease as the end result of how we interact with the world, in terms of our beliefs, perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, which then ultimately determine our actions. Actions in harmony with our inner nature create health, while those disharmonious with our inner nature create disease. Health comes when we live in harmony with our true nature.
Ayurveda allows us to understand our individual constitution and to find the best ways to live a life of balance. It provides holistic understanding and healing to people on all levels: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Ayurvedic medicine is highly effective because the science individualizes and personalizes the approach to healing.
Ayurveda uses a multitude of healing modalities including herbs, diet, color aromatherapy, colors, sound, lifestyle recommendations, panchakarma, meditation, and yoga. These ancient principles are easily applicable and helpful with our modern-day challenges, asking us to slow down, listen and prioritize our well-being.
