Ayurveda: The Science of Life
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old healing system originating in India from the ancient sacred texts; The Vedas. It is a holistic science which primarily uses lifestyle as medicine to bring an individual into their unique and optimal balance. Ayurveda is a sister science to Yoga, Tantra, Vastu (Vedic Feng Shui) and Jyotish (Vedic astrology). Within Ayurveda, many remedies from these related sciences are incorporated though Ayurveda is a whole and complete system on its own.
What makes Ayurveda a wonderful stand-alone or complementary medicine to modern methods, is that it looks at each individual as a completely unique being. Therefore, all treatments are prescribed according to an individual’s unique constitution, lifestyle needs and personal capabilities. Ayurveda addresses the root cause of disease rather than prescribing treatments for symptoms. It is for this reason that Ayurvedic medicine allows an individual to sustainably recover from disease and maintain health throughout their life.
