Ayurveda


Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old holistic medical science from India’s Vedic civilization. The theory and literature of Ayurveda have since spread throughout the world, and is still practiced today. Ayurveda is part of many eastern preventative care rituals, especially in countries like Tibet, China, Persia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, and Indonesia.

It is based on the philosophy that well-being is maintained by balancing the energies of the mind, body, and soul. Ayurvedic prevention and treatment depends on an individual's specific characteristics and body frame.

The theory of Ayurveda is founded on the belief that good health is the result of a harmony between the inner self and the outer self. In other words, to be healthy, your thoughts, feelings, and actions should all align. The goal is to have a strong immune system. As long as our immune system is strong, we will suffer no disease.

Because of our abundance of resources and because we tend to overindulge in the Western World, we find ourselves riddled with diseases as we grow older. Ayurvedic Philosophy maintains that forgiveness is strengthening and that a disease-free life is possible, even late into our old age
