Ayurveda originated in India more than 5000 years ago. The ancient sages created this holistic method of healing imbalances in the body, mind and spirit, based upon the Vedic texts, the world's oldest known record of spiritual knowledge. Ayurveda is considered "the Mother of all Healing" and is said to originate from Prana, the life-force itself, which is the original power of creation.
We all possess an innate healing power, meaning the body will heal itself, if given the proper circumstances to do so. Ayurveda incorporates the use of diet, exercise, herbs, massage & detoxifying therapy, spiritual practice and correct lifestyle to balance the Doshas, or constitutional types.
Ayurveda has catagorized three basic constitutional types. They are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, each of which influence the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the individual. Based upon Ayurvedic principles, disease manifests when there is imbalance in the Doshas. Imbalances are created by improper diet, lifestyle and influences, which create toxins in the body, mind and spirit.
Ayurveda is truly whole body healing. Whereas, Western or allopathic medicine seems to focus on the symptoms of disease, Ayurveda focuses on the cause of disease, for only by eliminating the cause, can the individual be truly cured.
The principle of cause and effect, or Karma, is important in Ayurveda. We all possess the power to create disease and the power to obtain optimal health. This requires that the individual participate in their own healing and can not remain passive to the process.
My goal, as an Ayurvedic practitioner, is to educate the client to the importance of self-knowledge and self-care. The individual must take responsibility for their own health, my responsibility is to facilitate the learning process by providing the tools necessary to achieve optimal health on all levels.
Ayurveda is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).
