So what is Ayurveda? The Basics:
Ayurveda is an alternative system of healing that has its roots in Ancient India. It is one of the world’s oldest holistic (whole-body) healing systems. Ayurveda is made up of two Sanskrit words: Ayuh which means life and Veda which means the knowledge of.
It places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance.
Ayurveda identifies three basic types of energy or functional principles that are present in everyone and everything. Since there are no single words in English that convey these concepts, we use the original Sanskrit words vata, pitta and kapha.
Treatment plans could include daily routine (dinicharya), seasonal-based routine (ritucharya), dietary practices including food and herbs, breathing practices (pranayama), yoga asana, meditation, and more. Treatment plans will be mutually agreed upon by practitioner and client to ensure the best fit possible.
