Why Ayurveda?

The word “Ayurveda” is translated as “TheĀ  Knowledge of Life”. Ayurveda is Nature’s medicine, approaching health from a “whole person” (body, mind and soul) perspective. By understanding how nature works, we can apply these principles to all aspects of life. We can know how each choice, action and interaction will affect our thoughts, emotions, physical body and consciousness.

Ayurvedic Consultants seek to understand the root cause of an imbalance in order to help alleviate the associated symptoms of that underlying condition or illness. Ayurveda recognizes that we are all unique individuals and that optimal health and well-being means honoring your own unique needs. What is beneficial to one person may not be for another. We seek to understand what drives each individual’s health and happiness in order to maximize their natural healing potential.

Ayurveda in it’s highest expression is the ultimate form of preventative medicine. An individual comes to know themselves so well that they easily recognize imbalances early, before they manifest into disease. There are always signs and symptoms about what is going on within us and, when we know how to “listen”, we can make corrections through proper diet and lifestyle choices. Living an Ayurvedic lifestyle encourages each individual to take action and responsibility for his or her own health.
