08 Mar What is Ayurveda?
A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO WELLNESS
Have you ever called your doctor with a nagging complaint (migraines, ringing in the ears, sinus congestion, bloating, constipation, heartburn, acne, sciatic pain, etc.) and he tells you there is nothing he can do? Ayurveda, an ancient holistic science from India, believes that these types of complaints are often due to an energetic imbalance. At the initial stage of imbalance they are generally easily remedied with diet and lifestyle modifications. However, if left unchecked, the pattern may worsen and a more serious disease may result. Ayurveda provides the tools to decipher the origins of these minor imbalances (whether it be physical or emotional). Rather than suppressing symptoms with drugs, ayurveda seeks to eradicate the root cause of your complaint by treating the whole person – without drugs and before the imbalance manifests into something more serious.
How are yoga and ayurveda connected?
Ayurveda is referred to as the “sister science” to yoga. In India, the two are incorporated and comprise a complete wellness road map for the body, mind and spirit. So ayurveda and yoga are not viewed as diet or exercise regimes – they are a way of life for those seeking emotional and physical health and happiness.
