What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda literally means "The Science of Life". It is the healing science from India. It has been practiced for over 5,000 years by millions of individuals to assist the body in journeying back to optimal health. Ayurveda views health and disease as the end result of how we interact with the world, in terms of our beliefs, perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, which then ultimately determine our actions. Actions in harmony with our inner nature create health, while those disharmonious with our inner nature create disease. Ayurveda utilizes herbs, diet, colors, aromas, sound, lifestyle recommendations, panchakarma, meditation, and Yoga. More and more people are discovering that these ancient principles are easily applicable to modern life and that they have the power to create health and contentment.
