AYURVEDA

“Wisdom of life”

 

The main objective of Ayurveda is to maintain health by preventative measures and to eradicate the root cause of ailments. Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health that is designed to help people live long, healthy, and well-balanced lives. Ayurveda asks you to take responsibility of your own health- health is an ongoing process and cannot be fixed by pills and drugs. Body, mind, and consciousness are in constant interaction and relationship with other people and the environment. Positive health requires balance of the external and internal environment. Ayurveda gives guidelines on how to achieve and maintain that ideal balance. Ayurveda encompasses diet and nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, and medicinal herbs along with cleansing and rejuvenation therapies to heal the body and mind.  Ayurveda is a lifestyle, not a diet or trend.

Body Constitutions

Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, each person has a distinct pattern of energy, called Dosha. According to Ayurveda, every person is made up of five elements: space, air, fire, water, and earth. These elements combine to form the three Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. These Doshas are the energies governing functions in the body and everyone is born with with an unique proportion of the Doshas. When the Doshas are balanced, all the systems and activities of mind and body are functioning at optimal levels, and the individual, therefore, enjoys perfect health. However, imbalance interrupts the natural flow of vital energy. Living according to your Dosha will help you achieve balance, success, and happiness. After discovering what your Dosha is, we can create an easy lifestyle for you to be on your path of well-being.

Health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

  3. I hope you write more about Ayurveda. There is so much info on the net I don’t know what to believe. My husband and I took a trip to India a little over 1 year ago and we are in love with the food, culture, and the way of living. When we returned from India we maintained the “veg” diet for some time, until we succumbed to Western ways again. I would like to begin to follow an Ayurveda lifestyle to optimize health. I hope you have something in the works about Ayurveda.

    • Hi! I do plan to expand on Ayurveda on this site. It will take me a few more months to get it all up. Though, all of my recipes and health posts incorporate the principals of Ayurveda. Please feel free to contact me via email for more information or how you can incorporate Ayurveda in your lifestyle. I would also like to hear about your trip to India and what turned you on/off from an Ayurvedic way of living. nimisha [at] clubdinein.com
