What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient holistic health care system, which originated in India over 5000 years back. It translates as “the science of life or healthy living” and it’s known all over the world for its healing, preventative and rejuvenating therapies.
Ayurveda views each individual as unique and whole: mind, body and soul, guiding us on how to be balanced and happy in this ever-changing, challenging life!
As per Ayurveda the individual body is composed by the 5 great elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These 5 elements combine together to create 3 biological energies called Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
These energies govern our body and mind, responsible for physiological and psychological functions. When these energies are in the wrong proportion or out of balance, we experience discomfort, pain, emotional instability, lack of energy and disease.
An imbalance in the Doshas can be caused by factors such as; Eating incomparable foods, change in season, stressful environments, wrong life style and karmic influence.
A balanced body and mind promotes health, wellness, harmony and happiness.
What are you made of mostly? According to Ayurveda all living beings are made of a combination of
the 5 elements, Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. The combination of those elements creates the
Doshas, Space + Air = Vata, Fire + Water = Pitta, Water + Earth = Kapha.
Vata, Pitta, Kapha are the vital energies which sustain life and harmony, if those energies go out of
balance in the physical body or the mind, we start to experience discomfort. If nothing is done to
bring those energies back to balance disease will start to settle. An Ayurvedic Consult can help you
to identify your constitutions and your imbalances throughout a detailed questionnaire. An
individualised dietary and lifestyle plan is created for you aiming at reversing the condition and
promoting balance and wellbeing. Herbal tonics and medicinal herbs might also be needed. Become
a better version of you, experience more energy, better physiological functions, less anxiety and a
more grounded state of mind.
