What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is one of the most comprehensive holistic health systems in the world. Originating in India over three thousand years ago, Ayurveda focuses on promoting health and longevity, and the prevention of disease.  It restores balance in the mind and body through the removal of toxins that accumulate in the body and block the flow of energy and nourishment to the tissues. This is achieved by implementing diet and lifestyle adjustments, customized herbal formulas, prescribed daily and seasonal regimen.

 

Ayurveda recognizes that no one person is the same and that we are all unique.  It acknowledges that various aspects of life such as emotional and physical stress, food choices, lifestyle, weather, seasons and relationships can affect individuals differently. For this reason, Ayurveda provides individuals with personalized solutions to attain and maintain optimal health.

 

With its emphasis on identifying and eliminating the root cause of illnesses, Ayurveda is a system of medicine that everyone can benefit from. It is affordable, extremely accessible and a perfect option for those seeking complementary and holistic forms of medicine.
