What is Ayurveda?

Ayur - life,  Veda - wisdom or science.

Ayurveda is the traditional science of India dating back over 5000 years.
Ayurveda advocates that each person is born with a basic genetic make-up or body type called ‘Prakruti’. Maintaining prakruti is at the very core of what Ayurveda seeks to achieve. In our fast-paced, often there are plenty of factors out of which stress, anxiety and gut issues being the prime factors that can cause our prakruti to become imbalanced. This imbalance is referred to as ‘Vikruti’ and is the root cause of disease and ill health according to Ayurveda. It aims to correct this imbalance to help achieve a healthy and long life. While preventing and supporting the healing journey of a disease is an important aspect of Ayurveda. Ayurveda always emphasis on gut and mental health.

Ayurveda encourages a holistically balanced, well-lived life. Ayurveda understands the world in energetic terms. An important part of our prakruti is our ‘dosha’ or body type. There are three primary doshas or bio-energies known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each of us has different amounts of the three doshas in our bodies/minds. Once you know your unique dosha type, you’re able to work towards returning your body to perfect balance. Each and every one of us has our own defined constitution from birth to death that is affected by a whole host of different factors. Ayurvedic supplements seeks to bring the body back to equilibrium, to find out what it is lacking and modify it. These modifications may include changes to your diet, stress levels and lifestyle habits alongside Ayurvedic supplements and  gut cleansing techniques if required. To put it in simple terms, Ayurveda helps the body to be healthy and happy.
