Ayurveda is the essence of ancient Vedic healing techniques, which are based on the curing of diseases from their root causes, not simply remedying the symptoms. In Ayurveda, the ‘whole’ body is viewed as a mutually responding system and its foundation of treatment is rooted in nature. A single part not responding well may cause a disturbance throughout the rest of the body. Ayurveda works for the aim of complete health vs. allopathic techniques, which are based on the concept of sudden and instantaneous relief resulting in short-term relief, overlooking the origin of disease. Alternatively, Ayurveda works in a holistic way, treating the body as a whole and treating the root cause and not just the symptoms.
Ayurvedic techniques have been developed over thousands of years and through generational research and proven empirical work in the west. It has been well-tested and well-proven in the history of India, one of the worlds oldest cultures. In western contemporary age, our luxurious and fast-paced lifestyles have proven to cause disturbances in the systems and this imbalance has resulted in serious and growing diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Ayurveda, coupled with yoga, breath work and healthy diet is a proven path to a healthy body and sound mind.
