Detailed Information

Ayurveda is a five thousand year old system of healing, with origins in the Vedic culture of ancient India. The Sanskrit word Ayurveda is derived from the root words ayuh, meaning “life” or “longevity”, and veda, meaning “science” or “sacred knowledge.” Ayurveda therefore translates as, “the sacred knowledge of life.”
Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. 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.
Therapies are typically based on the appropriate diet and lifestyle for each body type, or Dosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha or a combination ). Doshas are the forces that create the physical body. They determine conditions of growth, aging, health and disease. Typically, one of the three doshas predominates and determines one’s constitution or mind-body type.
The use of complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances may be recommended as needed to facilitate healing and maintain wellness.
