our ayurveda philosophy

Ayurveda is "the science of" LIFE
Ayurveda (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge) continues to be one of the world's most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.

Considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science, Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the "Mother of All Healing."

Actually, most of the principles of many of the natural healing systems which are now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda, including Homeopathy.

Recognizing that human beings are part of nature, Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body.

Vata (Wind)

Vata dosha is made up of the elements air and ether, it is the principle force of motion in the body and mind. When vata dosha is healthy, the movements of the body are graceful, unimpeded, and yet controlled. When out of balance, the movements become erratic, excessive, decreased, or blocked.

Pitta (Fire)
