The uniqueness of Ayurveda is that it is as relevant to healthcare today as it was 5000 years ago. Based on universal natural principles, modern medicine and pharmaceutics are reaching into its ancient traditions to rediscover answers to chronic illness, well-being practices and effective natural herbal formulae for complaints that most other health practices label as incurable.
As it's approach and effectiveness are again being recognized, Ayurveda is receiving a wide resurgence in both the East and the West. It's sustainable approach to health and wellness is a powerful tool for managing acute and chronic conditions, as well as for prevention and general well-being.
Ayurveda approaches health from a whole-system perspective, managing the root cause of imbalance rather than the symptoms of disease. When the root cause is corrected, symptoms disappear. With the belief that all answers and medicine are found in nature, Ayurveda believes that health is the expression of a balanced relationship between our bodies, minds, spirits, and environment.
There is no "one size fits all" approach in Ayurveda, even for similarly labeled disease conditions. Every single person comes away with a unique wellness plan that is customized to their particular constitution, condition, and lifestyle.
We believe that true healing, requires true intention, commitment and discipline on both the part of the practitioner and the rogi (client). The Ayurvedic approach often includes diet and lifestyle changes, medicinal herbs, yoga-therapy, other mind-body therapies.
Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of health encompassing the Mind-Body and Soul. Its roots are in India. Ayu from “Ayus” means age or longevity and “Veda” means the living knowledge or wisdom of a Science. Ayurveda is the wisdom of Longevity or what sustains life. Traditionally, it offers a vast arena of expertise that ranges from Internal Medicine and Surgery to Psychiatry, ENT, Rhinology, Pediatrics and Toxicology.
We believe that true healing does not come from a pill or a prescription, but requires a whole-system and whole-life approach. Ayurveda integrates diet and lifestyle counseling, medicinal herbs, pranayama (breath) and yoga, other mind-body therapies, and Panchakarma (deep-tissue detox therapy) when needed, to create a comprehensive approach to every individual's health.
