What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient, holistic science that is about 5000 years old that originates from India. Many people who are familiar with it call Ayurveda the science of a happy & healthy life; it teaches us what is needed in order to reach our greatest potential. The most important aspect of this practice is prevention– we need to take care of ourselves on a daily bases in order to stay healthy and in balance, rather than performing damage control. Besides focusing on prevention, the principle of the three doshas makes Ayurveda even more special.

The doshas Vata, Pitta & Kapha – consist of 2 elements each:
Vata: Ether & Air
Pitta: Fire & Water
Kapha: Earth & Water
Each of the three doshas are present in everyone in different proportions. Some people have more of the earth element, others more of air and so on - these different combinations are what make each individual unique. What might work for one person may not work for the other at all.

Ayurveda provides us with the knowledge of an appropriate lifestyle and a proper diet according to everyone’s unique constitution.
Additionally, detoxification of body and mind is an essential part of Ayurveda and should be performed regularly. This process can be supported through various Ayurvedic treatments which help to keep the physical and mental state in balance. Treatments are also used to re-establish well-being, inner peace & all-over health.
Ayurveda solely works with purely natural remedies, like oil & herbs.
