Ayurveda is the world’s oldest holistic healing system originating from India. Its theories and remedies for a healthy mind and body have endured for more than 5,000 years. The term Ayurveda in Sanskrit translates to 'the science of life' as it teaches us the art of living in harmony with nature in order to preserve health and heal diseases by all natural means. What makes Ayurveda unique from other systems of medicine is that it does not simply offer remedies for illnesses. Its fundamental goal is to prevent diseases before it manifests so that we can live a long and healthy life. By using diet, lifestyle practices, rejuvenation, detoxification, and hands-on therapies together with The Three Doshas principles, we can achieve the necessary mind-body balance for profound and lasting physical healing.
