Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of natural healing and holistic medicine. Ayurveda means “the science of life” (the Sanskrit root ayur means “longevity” or “life” and veda means “science”). While modern medicine tends to focus on the management of disease, the primary goal of Ayurveda is to prevent disease and to help people live long, healthy and balanced lives. A disease in Ayurveda is an imbalance in the three doshas (basic energy types) – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each individual has a unique balance of these three doshas and this uniqueness governs the body type, energy levels, appetite and even emotions.
