What is Ayurveda?

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.

It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems.

The Ayurvedic approach is a holistic one, and is able to effectively resolve many conditions which are considered to be obstinate and incurable in other systems. Simultaneously, it lays a great deal of emphasis upon the maintenance of positive health of an individual, taking into consideration the full scope of human nature and spiritual well-being.

It is said that over 3000 years ago, Nature revealed the particular properties of each tree, plant, herb, root and flower to a great sage, Dhanwantari, as he sat in deep meditation in the midst of a forest. Ancient Rishis and sages continued to learn of the beneficial link between the vegetable, mineral and human worlds, and discovered that bodily health comes from cultivating a harmonious balance of Nature's three subtle energies, or doshas: vata, pitta and kapha, which are present in all life and matter. The doshas have certain qualities or attributes which characterize their effects on the human body. The individual remains naturally healthy as long as these elements are in a state of equilibrium. But if this equilibrium is disturbed beyond a point, the body becomes susceptible to premature aging, disease and decay.
