Ayurveda & its philosophy
If translated from Sanskrit into English, Ayu means life and veda means science.
That makes Ayurveda the science of life which defines life as the intelligent coordination of our four parts:
the soul, the mind, the senses, the body.
Ayurveda is not only cure for the sick. It is a natural and holistic health system, achieving the balance in each individual to prevent sickness. It does not regard health as something solely physiological but incorporates environmental, mental and spiritual life.
Ayurveda is an ancient knowledge based on 5000 year old vedic wisdom and, to the present day, India`s greates pride and practiced tradition all over the world. It combines special nutrition, lifestyle, medicine and functions also as the complementary system to Yoga.
Special medicated oils are used in combination with purgation, enemas, oil massage, steam therapy to remove toxins and restore balance of the doshas (which regulate the physical and mental constitution of each individual).
The right nutrition for our personal balance of doshas is one of the most important components of health.
Food is considered everything we take in, with the mouth, the nose, the ears, the skin, the eyes. Therefore it is not only important to eat well, the environmental input is equally effective. Just as bodily nutrition needs to be pure and natural for an optimum health, we also benefit directly from wholesome surroundings in harmony with nature.
Ayurveda and Yoga
They are all part of one health care systems, functioning complementary. They all share the same ethics and cohesive approach to the environment. All together, it is the ideal practice for training body and mind, to cope with inevitable stress and to sustain your wellbeing.
All in all, there are as many treatments as there are individuals.
