"Ayurveda," meaning the science and wisdom of life, is a comprehensive system of health and well-being, born 10,000 years ago, its ancient roots with the Tamil Siddhas of southern India, who worked developed a system of life-extension, life-enhancement, and a natural approach to nourish body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda knows that our bodies are the careful balance of three elemental forces or doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha (wind, fire and the solidity of earth and water), and understands that disease and discomfort are manifestations of what’s knows as a doshic imbalance. Using personalized treatments, diet changes and herbal remedies, Ayurveda aims to restore balance to the body and mind, and to do so in a way that has profoundly restorative and lasting effects. When the fire of an aggravated Pitta is cooled, or the sluggishness of Kapha is stirred and activated, or the overstimulation of Vata is calmed, discomforting symptoms and associated disease naturally vanish, and, more importantly, so do their underlying causes. The ancient art and science of Ayurveda guides us to heal ourselves, as well, using the simple and beautiful gifts of the natural world and even the quiet intuition of our own beings, as we learn to feel our own imbalances, and easily correct them before problems arise.
