Ayurveda translated means “the science of life.” It is a holistic practice of medicine that has its roots in India – having been established well-over 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda sees “food as medicine” and the digestive system as being the most important vehicle in the body for overall health and vitality. It views the mind, body, soul and spirit as an integrated unit of intelligence/consciousness through the examination of the 5 elements of earth, water, air, fire, and ether and how they are functioning in the physiology.
What makes Ms. Catrelle’s Ayurvedic Assessments and Protocols unique is that she combines Vedic Astrology, Yoga, Vaastu, Meditation, and Herbology into her Assessments — she also takes great care in recommending protocols that “meet the client” where they are at in their day-to-day life and responsibilities. This additional awareness and guidance provides the client with recommendations that are set up for success in meeting treatment & lifestyle goals that are reasonable, practical and effective.
Rather than “treating the symptom,” Ayurveda seeks to correct the root elemental imbalance in the body by making changes in diet and incorporating herbal formulas and treatments. It is a proactive approach to establishing and sustaining perfect health through recognizing everyone’s unique elemental constitution, rather than a reactionary “all-for-one” approach to ill health.
Through the understanding of nature and our intimate relationship to it, Ayurveda teaches us the knowledge of connecting the outer nature in the form of seasons, temperature, elements, etc. to our inner world of personality, body type, and predisposition to imbalance.
