Ayurveda

Ayurvedic medicine integrates and balances the body, mind and spirit. This balance is believed to lead to health, happiness and the prevention of illness.

What is ayurveda?

Ayurveda is widely regarded as one of the oldest medical systems in the world. It originated in India where ayurvedic practices predate written records and have been handed down by word of mouth.

Ayurvedic medicine integrates and balances the body, mind and spirit. This balance is believed to lead to health, happiness and the prevention of illness. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend upon getting the right balance for the ‘Dosha’. When these rhythms are balanced the body is healthy.

Fundamental to ayurvedic medicine is the theory that people are a combination of the three doshas, which are made up of the five elements – earth, fire, water, air and ether. The three doshas are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each dosha has specific qualities and it is a combination of the three doshas and the proportion of each, which determine the unique characteristics of each individual, as unique as our genetic code or DNA.*
