What Is Ayurvedic Therapy?

The ancient practice of Ayurveda was invented nearly 5,000 years ago in India. Ayurveda operates under the premise that each individual was born with a unique constitution or dosha that can be either vata, pitta, kapha, or a combination of either two or three of them. It’s considered to be a science of balance and longevity. The goal of Ayurvedic Therapy is to keep the body and the dosha in balance because it brings both mental and physical well being and health.

Ayurveda is the Vedic system of health care/ This ancient ‘science of life’ is health and not disease specific and takes into account the patient’s entire being – body, mind soul and spirit.

Though it originated thousands of years ago, Ayurveda could be more appropriate for present-day society, where so many people suffer from stress-related conditions which conventional medicine has been unable to cure. Ayurveda’s logical, commonsense approach to health and living is combined with philosophy, psychology and spiritual guidance.

Ayurveda has an armory of physical treatments from medication to massage, yoga, cleansing and detoxification programs, and remedies for disorders such as diabetes, high BP, infertility, impotence, arthritis, hypertension, gastro-intestinal problems, and a whole barrage of chronic illness and infectious diseases. It offers natural, herbal remedies, which counteract imbalances in the body and can successfully treat most health problems encountered today.

Ayurveda teaches that if humans do not live their lives according to the right principles of the body and mind, there will be an imbalance and both the body and mind causing suffering and disease.
