Ayurveda, which means "the science of life," is a powerful and holistic system from India. It has been practiced for over 5,000 years by millions of individuals to assist the body in finding optimal health. Ayurveda views health and disease as the end result of how we interact with the world in terms of our beliefs, perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, which then ultimately determine our actions. Actions in harmony with our inner nature create health, while dis-harmonious actions create disease. Health comes when we live in harmony with our true nature as spirit. Ayurveda allows us to get a glimpse of our individual true nature and to find the best ways to live a life of balance. It provides holistic healing to people on all levels—physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Ayurveda employs a multitude of healing modalities including herbs, diet, colors, aromas, sound, lifestyle recommendations, panchakarma, and yoga. More and more people are discovering that these ancient principles are easily applicable to modern life and that they have the power to create health and contentment.
