Ayurveda translated literally means “the knowledge” (veda) of “life” (ayu). The practice of Ayurveda is said to go back several thousand years and was brought forth by the great rishis (sages) of the times. These rishis provided us with remedies to alleviate human suffering brought on by imbalances within the individual and the collective mindset. Ayurveda acknowledges the unique constitution of the individual, the genetics of the ancestors, the influences of nature upon the individual, and the current environment in which the native is currently living. It seeks to bring balance where there is imbalance and promote medicines and practices that actively cure disease as well as prevent disease before it settles too deeply into the tissues.
Many people today are suffering from stress-related disorders of the mind, body, soul and spirit. Illnesses such as chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, addictions, and sleep disorders are plaguing generations of people. What is causing the high levels of disease in our current times? How can we prevent disease? Ayurveda answers these questions. It seeks to get to the root of the disease! The symptom is seen only as an indicator from the body that something deeper is out of harmony with the true nature of the individual. For example, if someone is having chronic heartburn – rather than just giving someone a pill to resolve the heartburn – Ayurveda finds the root cause of the heartburn and provides remedies to address the source of the imbalance. Furthermore, Ayurveda prescribes remedies that heal not only the body, but the mind and soul, thus returning the whole individual back to a state of internal balance. The body’s natural immune system is strengthened and a more sustainable lifestyle free from disease is obtained.
