What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda simply means “science of life” (a Sanskrit word, ayur meaning life, veda meaning science or knowledge). It’s an ancient philosophy based on a deep understanding of the human body, mind and spirit. Unlike orthodox medicine, it’s not based on the frequently changing findings of specific research projects, but rather on permanent eternal principles of living which can be applicable to modern day life.
Although it originated in the East several thousands of years ago, Ayurveda is particulary relevant to present-day Western society. The logical, common sense approach to health and living is combined with philosophy, psychology and spiritual guidance.
How does Ayurveda work?
It’s a system of healing that examines our physical constitution, emotional nature, and spiritual outlook. According to Ayurvedic philosophy, we predominately manifest as one of three different energies, or doshas, known as vata, pitta, and kapha.
Ayurvedic practitioners believe we’re all made up of a unique combination of these three forces. Although everyone has some of each, most people tend to have an abundance of one or two of the doshas. This unique combination is said to be determined at the moment of conception, and is your own personal blueprint, or prakriti (nature).
As you move through life, the proportion of each of the three doshas constantly fluctuates according to your environment, your diet, the seasons, the climate, your age, and many other factors. As they move into and out of balance, the doshas can affect your health, energy level, and general mood.
