A system of healing unlike any other, Ayurveda offers a unique approach to health care in the form of self-discovery by encouraging one to be an active participant in his/her own journey toward healing. It’s a tradition which is thought to be over five thousand years old, originated in the ancient India to sync up with one’s truest inner nature, honor and develop one’s strengths, and to maintain balance in the face of adversity. Derived from two words in Sanskrit, “ayuh” meaning “life” or “longevity”; and “veda” meaning “science” or “sacred knowledge”, Ayurveda’s definition roughly translates to “the science of longevity” or “the sacred knowledge of life.”
It’s a common misconception that Ayurvedic works the way as any other form of medicines do. Unlike other forms of healing practices, Ayurveda is not simply about taking natural herbal remedies and waiting for the results to show up. It’s about learning your relationship with the elements and the unique combinations they create, or more popularly known as doshas.
