What is Ayurveda Medicine? Ayurveda is the science of life
Ayurveda is an ancient alternative medicine dating back to 5000 B.C. The word Ayurveda means “the science of life”. Ayurveda is a holistic tradition from India that uses a systemic, and highly complex, model of health, disease and health restoration.
Through the journey of Ayurveda one can ultimately have a harmonious lifestyle with an unblemished peace of mind which grants a person maximum life extension.
Its aim is to provide guidance regarding diet, lifestyle and treatments so healthy individuals can stay healthy and those with health challenges can improve their well being. Ayurveda balances the body types or humors with the 5 elements of nature:
PItta= fire/ water
Kapha= Earth / water
When these elements are balanced one can achieve a healthy balance of mind,body and soul.
Ayurveda stresses the usefulness of natural therapies, such as massage, herbal medicines, exercise and other physical modalities, as well as psychological counseling.
