What is Ayurveda

Ayurveda (pronounced eye-er-vay-duh) explained most simply is the Science of Life. The practice of Ayurveda as a way of living and a method of administering medical care dates back 5,000 years. Through the use of diet, lifestyle, herbs and body therapies, Ayurveda can provide support to maintain good health and help reverse the onset and progression of diseases. Ayurveda focuses on preventative care for the physical, mental and spiritual balance of the individual.

Mom was right, each of us is special. Ayurveda treats each person individually based on the person's unique constitution (Dosha). Although five people may see an Ayurvedic practitioner for the same symptoms they may require five different treatment methods. With Ayurveda it is important to find the root cause of each person's symptoms to be able to treat that person properly.
