Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda—the Science of Life—is the time-tested, natural, prevention-oriented, and holistic health care system of ancient India. It is free of negative side effects and offers economical solutions to the major current health problems worldwide.
Ayurveda advocates that living in harmony with nature and maintaining harmony between body, mind, and spirit contributes to a long and healthy life. Any imbalance in this harmony results in disease. The focus of Ayurveda is on preventive and curative aspects.
Everything in the universe is composed of the elements space, air, fire, water, and earth. These five elements can be condensed into the three bio-energies of space and air (Vata), fire and water (Pitta), and water and earth (Kapha). Every individual has a distinct balance of these bio-energies and our health depends on maintaining a healthy balance between them.
The Ayurvedic way of life is tailored to each person’s unique constitution, taking into account the individual needs for nutrition, exercise, personal hygiene, social interaction, and other lifestyle factors. The Ayurvedic healing approach to treatments is based on detox and herbal medicine.
