Ayurveda is based on the principle of whole-body healing and preventative holistic treatment. Well-being is achieved through the balance of all functions – mind, body and spirit. If one is not functioning fully, the systems become unbalance resulting in strain on the other systems. Eventually, this can cause illness to develop including pain, fatigue, headaches, digestive issues, depression and other ailments.
This is an ancient form of health care. The word Ayurveda roughly translates to mean “knowledge of life.” This health principle is concerned with treating all aspects of mental and physical well-being that affect health.
Your Ayurveda practitioner will base your treatment on a number of factors that may be affecting your health. This includes, emotional life stressors, diet, exercise, genetic predispositions, recent or previous injuries, age, and environmental factors such as allergies and climactic changes.
The main goal of Ayurveda is not to fight disease, but to promote good health through preventative measures and healthy living practices.
