Ayurveda is the sister science of Yoga, a system of healing that originates from India, more specifically the "Vedas" (the most ancient Sanskrit text - over 5000 years old).  It's body, mind and spirit medicine that has stood the test of time,  but has also evolved to deal with our modern issues and our environment today.  "Ayur " means life and "Veda" means knowledge.    It's the study of how to have a long, healthy, happy, productive and spiritually-connected life.  It is holistic medicine,  it takes into account the whole individual and their unique constitution.   

Rather than treating symptoms with drugs and ignoring the underlying problems, Ayurvedic medicine aims to look at the root of disease and how it’s related to a person’s thoughts, beliefs and lifestyle — in other words, a person’s “vital energy.”      

One of the most important things you should know is that our body has the innate ability to heal...even with serious disease. 

Excerpt  from  Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom - by Acharya Shunya 

"We should never underestimate the physical body,  there is a great power that lies latent inside there for you to discover and own.   Your body is a field of healing potential.   You deserve health.   You body is like the earth,  where seeds of health lie dormant patiently waiting for rain.  Your body simply waits for you to give it just a little bit of love and the invisible potential will actualize into blossoms of health.  So recognize the amazing regenerative power of your body, a power that exists in each and every cell.   Given the right nutrition and positive living conditions - the body will self-heal.    The choices that we make each and every day can both protect our health and restore it." .    

Ayurveda strongly emphasizes that the simple acts we do everyday can make the most profound effect on our health.  You can make positive changes right now, one step at a time in order to improve your health and vitality.
