How can Ayurveda help?
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian Holistic Medical system of well-being connected to the physical, physiological and psychological body. Ayurveda in Sanskrit means 'the science of life' ( 'ayur'=life and 'veda'=knowledge).
Ayurveda uses five approaches to assess and prevent disease:
According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance amongst the body's three fundamental energies called Doshas: Vata (Air), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Earth). Ayurvedic principles hold that each person has a particular pattern of energy – an individual combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics known as a constitution (dosha).
