Ayurveda

Ancient Wisdom of Life

“Life (ayu) is the combination (samyoga) of body, senses, mind and reincarnating soul. Ayurveda is the most sacred science of life, beneficial to humans both in this world and the world beyond.” ―Charaka

Ayurveda is a complete medical science that originated in India over 5,000 years ago. Focusing on the harmonious relationship between humans and nature, Ayurveda seeks to help people stay healthy so that not only can they live a life of peace and joy, but so that they can pursue their higher purpose with grace and ease. 

It is said in Ayurveda that in order to treat the patient, one must understand the nature of the patient, the nature of the imbalance, and the nature of the medicine. Because every individual has a unique constitution and unique set of circumstances, Ayurvedic disease management and health counseling is always tailored towards the individual. The science of therapeutics in Ayurveda is therefore based on the knowledge of what is harmonious and disharmonious for each person.

Ayurvedic Health Counseling

Rather than merely alleviating symptoms, the Ayurvedic Health Counselor introduces the principles of Ayurveda and guides an individual through the process of integrating those principles into daily life. The ultimate goal is to increase self-awareness and empower the individual to keep him or herself healthy, beyond the period of treatment.
