Ayurveda is one of the oldest scientific health care systems in the world 5000 years old, with an established record of clinical experience.
It is not only a system of medicine in the conventional sense that cures disease but is a philosophy of life that teaches us how to maintain and protect mental and physical health and achieve longevity.
Ayurveda treats the person as a whole, a combination of body, mind and soul making it truly holistic.
The word Ayurveda can be broken down Ayur means life and Veda means knowledge or learning. Hence Ayurveda is a knowledge by which life in its totality is understood.
According to Ayurveda each individual is a unique combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics known as (Prakruti). Many factors both internal as well as external can effect this constitution (Prakruti), emotions, diet, lifestyle, seasons, work environment, family and relationships.
When we begin to understand our natural tendencies of our constitution it can be easy to reflect and practically manage them, so that we can achieve a natural state of balance and work to minimize the cause that can bring about disease.
