Ayurveda"The Ancient Science"
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the traditional Hindu system of spiritual medicine, based on the idea of balance in bodily systems. A consciousness based approach to health, Ayurveda recognizes the phenomenal intelligence in every grain, every seed, all life, and every living thing.
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence of the mind-body connection, the ancient sages of India created Ayurveda which in current times continues to be one of mankind’s most powerful mind-body health systems. A science of life, Ayurveda offers a body of wisdom designed to help people maintain vibrance and health, all while realizing and reaching their full human potential. The two main principles of Ayurveda are that the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind.
Freedom from illness means expanding awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. Meditation, for example, allows you to effortlessly enter a state of expanded awareness and inner quiet that refreshes the mind and restores balance within the body. Meditation is just one of the powerful tools that ancient Ayurvedic physicians prescribed; many other practices for expanding self-awareness and cultivating your innate state of balance exist today:
- Understand your unique mind-body type and the specific needs that derive from it
- Eat a colorful, flavorful diet
- Get abundant sleep
- Live in tune with nature
- Strengthen your digestive power
- Rest and relax
Overall, the system of medicine called Ayurveda will remove the imbalance of the physical body, while providing the mental clarity needed to change unproductive mindsets.
"The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind"
