Ayurveda is a holistic approach to maintaining health.
Focussing on disease prevention, Ayurveda empowers individuals with the knowledge to understand their own unique nature and tendency towards a weakness or disease, to help maintain health and wellbeing. Ayurveda includes specific dietary and lifestyle practices with daily and seasonal routines as well as herbs, therapies, exercise and yoga.
The modern approach, once diagnosed with disease “X” is to treat “X” in isolation rather than treating You as a whole and looking for the initial cause or problem. Ayurveda recognises “X” and understands it can spread into “Y” and even “Z” (the spread is most likely your personal weak areas). By looking at past health issues, diet, lifestyle and family health, the Ayurvedic Professional looks to improve not only the current problem but formulate a plan for improved future health.
Ayurveda is not a quick fix or a one size fits all approach to health. in fact working with Ayurveda as a complimentary health system is a journey for You to understand Your unique qualities not just for today but for every stage of your life.
