What is Ayurveda?
Ayurvedic Medicine explores the diet, medicinal and lifestyle behaviours that are advantageous to life and consciousness as well as those that might be detrimental. It provides you with the essential tools and knowledge to achieve total health and wellness over a long and happy life.
Those that follow Ayurveda see the human being as part of nature – that we are deeply connected to the world around us. We are comprised of the same elements (air, space, fire, water and earth) as the natural world that surrounds us. These elements make up everything in the universe: organic and inorganic; animate and inanimate; nature, food, stars, planets, animals and us humans.
What we can therefore deduce from this knowledge is that when our environment or the foods we eat experience specific changes, so too are we likely to experience changes in our body. Ayurvedic medicine informs us how to live a life that is connected with nature. It’s when we become one with nature’s flow that we experience perfect health.
