Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word meaning "the science of life".

Ayurveda is a traditional healing system of India and Sri Lanka.

It covers all aspects of health, encouraging physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

The key principle of teaching is that there are five great elements - ether, air, fire, water, and earth - which underlie all living systems and are constantly changing and interacting.

They are simplified into three doshas (vital energies) existing in ever changing proportions throughout nature. In the human body. the levels of the doshas are believed to rise and fall daily, affected by factors such as different foods, time of day, season, levels of stress and repressed emotions.

Imbalances in the doshas are thought to disrupt the flow of prana "life energy" that enters the body through food and breath, and to impede Agni, the body's digestive fire which processes food and experiences.

If Angi is low, toxic substances called ama said to be a major source of illness are produced.

Ayurveda therefore places great importance on diet and detoxification techniques.

Energy controls every cell, thought, emotion and action, so every aspect of our lives affects the quality of energy and health.

Ayurvedic practitioners recognise that there is no prescription for health that caters to everyone. The balance of energies that contribute to good health in your body may lead to sickness in someone else.

In Ayurveda medicine every person is treated individually.

Your practitioner will identify your constitution, diagnosing the causes of imbalance and treating accordingly.

 

How many sessions do you need?

The number of sessions depends on several factors such as your age, your doshic imbalance and the severity and length of time you have had it.

Which problems can it help?

Because it is a complete system of medicine, practitioners say that Ayurveda medicine can help with many ailments, mental, physical, and emotional. It is particularly beneficial for digestive complaints.

In the hands of a qualified practitioner Ayurvedic medicine is safe for everyone. A competent practitioner would never ask you to give up your conventional medicine and would adapt the treatment to suit you.
