Originated from the Vedic culture of India, Ayurveda is a 5000-year-old system of natural healing. Ayurveda is also known as the science of life. Ayur relates to life and Veda relates to knowledge or science. It offers a complete body of wisdom that helps people to stay vital whilst realizing their full potential.
Ayurveda balances the dynamic integration of body, mind, spirit, and environment. Ayurveda works on prevention and encourages maintenance of health through the right diet, lifestyle changes and use of herbs.
Ayurveda does not focus on illness; it focuses on the life that must be supported by the energy in balance. When there is lesser stress and the flow of energy is balanced, the defense system of the body becomes strong
As Ayurveda recognizes human beings as a part of nature, it functions on three fundamental energies that govern the outer and inner environment.
The three energies are movement, transformation, and structure. In Sanskrit, it is known as Vata (wind), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (earth). These forces are responsible for the characteristics of mind and body and play a vital role in Ayurvedic healing
Ayurveda is known as the 'mother of healing' in India and has become quite popular over the years. Use of herbs and natural plants in medicines cure naturally and there is no side effect on the body.
