A note from one of our Ayurvedic Practitioner…

Ayurveda, the science of a healthy way of living, considers health as a vibrant equilibrium of Body, Mind, Sense organs and the Soul. Ayurveda is arguably the world’s oldest system of healing and entirely based on Nature’s healing organization. This gentle yet profound system of healing was realized in a state of meditation several thousand years ago and continues to be a living tradition.

Our internal environment has much to do with diurnal variations in the external surroundings. Disease is a result of not being at ease with the flow of nature.

For Ayurveda, a dynamic healthy life in all phases is an un-ending balance between an individual and his environment. In order to accomplish this balance, Ayurveda focuses on individualistic needs and ecological influences. For example, as our dress-code is different in summer and winter, from an Ayurvedic standpoint, diet in summer is completely different in winter. This holds also true for exercise and lifestyle. Consuming the same foods in all seasons causes stagnation and accumulation of noxious byproducts that result in imbalance.

As no two persons are same in their physical, mental and spiritual planes, each individual is unique in this ancient wisdom. When promoting health or helping to heal an ailment, the individualistic and holistic approach is the Ayurvedic way.

Yoga is very much part of Ayurvedic healing, creating awareness of the unified state of body, mind and soul for a healthy long life.

Remedies used for health promotion and disease management are herbs which have materialized from sacred origins and unprecedented human use. With its extensive branches addressing various health needs in all spheres of life, Ayurveda makes use of remedies for detoxification, rejuvenation, delaying premature aging, disease management, dietetics, daily and seasonal regimens and to increase vitality.

And finally, the ultimate goal of Ayurveda is to ascend from Physical well being to mental precision and eventually to spiritual consciousness.
