What is Ayurveda, and how can it transform your health?

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine dating back over 5000 years. It literally translates to "life wisdom" or, the science of life. 

Treating an individual holistically: honoring mind, body, and spirit; Ayurveda always favors natural, seasonal, and mindful healing over pharmaceuticals, trendy diets, or quick fixes.

Ayurveda uses food and lifestyle as primary medicines. It focuses on enhancing and supporting our digestive fire or gut health (agni), and burning or eliminating toxic metabolic waste (ama) from the body. Utilizing treatments such as nutritional therapies, herbal medicine, yoga, mediation, internal and external oiling of the body, and mama point (energy centers or channels in the body) therapy. Ayurveda naturally restores optimal health and balance.

Ayurveda is akin to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in that it is an elemental system of healing. It treats "dosha" or an individual’s unique constitution based on the panch mahabhutas or 5 Great Elements. Our system acknowledges a patient's original constitution or genetic code (prakruti), as well as the current state of imbalance in the dosas (vikruti). Also looking to thermogenics, or heating versus cooling, restoring equilibrium of temperatures in order to restore digestive and hormonal balance to body systems. 

An Ayurvedic consult begins with taking a thorough health history with a new client. Then, employing Ayurvedic medical assessments such as tongue, eye, and pulse assessment to establish dosha and accurately observe where imbalances lie. Our goal is to treat a patient's current imbalances in order to restore our original state of balanced health and vitality, i.e. YOUR best, healthiest happiest self!
