What is Ayurveda
Ayurveda is the longest continuously practiced medical system in the world, originating in India almost 5,000 years ago. It is founded on the principle that every person has a unique constitution. When body, mind, and spirit are balanced in accordance with that constitution, the body maintains health and vitality and avoids illness.
An Ayurveda Wellness Consultant evaluates a client based on the 5 basic elements that comprise all of us; earth, water, fire, air, and space. The dominant elements determine your dosha, or governing energy. Each dosha manifests specific body types and personality traits.
Balance of the mind, body and spirit is the focus of Ayurveda. Food, lifestyle changes, and herbs are the medicines used to balance and heal. With one on one guidance and support, a client will learn how to support their body's own ability to heal itself. From this balanced state, you can create a life of optimum health and wellness!
