Ayurveda, also known as Ayurvedic Medicine, is the traditional medicine of India, which originated over 5,000 years ago and is considered to be the longest continuously practiced system of medicine.
Ayurveda provides both curative and preventive measures towards optimal physical, mental and spiritual well-being. The word “Ayurveda” is from the ancient Indian language, Sanskrit, and literally means “Knowledge of Life”.
Inherent in Ayurvedic principles, is the concept that you are capable of taking charge of your own life and healing. Preferring to focus on the type of person who has the disease, rather than just understanding the type of disease the person has, Ayurveda is a patient-orientated system of healing.
Ayurveda emphasizes re-establishing balance in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise, and body cleansing, and the health of the mind, body, and spirit. In North America, Ayurveda is considered a form of alternative medicine. Like traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is a whole medical system, meaning that it is based on theories of health and illness, and on methods of preventing and treating health conditions.
