5000+ Years Of Success: Amazing Ayurveda
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedas. Much more than a mere system of treating illness, it is the Knowledge of Life (Ayur = life, Veda = knowledge) and offers a wealth of wisdom designed to help us realize our full potential across all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Recognizing that human are a part of Prakriti (Nature), Ayurveda treatment is a way of life. The key here is balance, not just within our own selves but also with our surroundings, with nature (Prakriti), and ultimately with the Universe itself.
As a concept Ayurveda is holistic, thus less inclined towards the treatment of a particular disease as the inherent nature implies that the system will necessarily look at the person as a whole. However it does not mean that we cannot treat and prevent illnesses. In fact it is useful in almost every disorder, including those connected to lifestyle as well as psychological. However there is very little short term band-aid fix and it is important to keep in mind that allopathic and other medical systems do have their own importance.

When it comes to your diet, Ayurveda believes that “one man’s food can be another man’s poison” and so it is important to first understand your body's Prakrati as well as your Dosha imbalances, your environment plus the seasons. The foods that are then recommended are best suited to you and the foods that are not should be avoided as they can be negative and cause adverse reactions. With this knowledge you can plan your meals, knowing fully well that every morsel you eat is adding positive energy to you.
So go ahead, let Ayurveda become a part of your life... Live Prakratik.
