Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of awakened consciousness, the lively intelligence that underlies the physiology, in maintaining and creating health. Pure consciousness is health and longevity! Consciousness creates harmony within yourself, your life and relationships.
Ayurvedic consultations will give you the tools to tune into your personal constitution to learn how to maintain or restore physical, mental and spiritual health.
Ayurveda is a personalized approach to health, and knowing your mind-body type allows you to make optimal choices about diet, exercise, supplements, and all other aspects of your lifestyle. It is the consciousness based teachings Vedic science for healing the body and mind. It is a holistic approach to total well being through self awareness.
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.
The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are as follows:
1.) the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and
2.) nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind.
Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body.
When you’re in balance, you naturally desire only that which nurtures your health and life. You flow in harmony with your body’s natural rhythms, getting restful sleep, feeding your senses with experiences, tastes, touch, aromas, sounds, and sights that uplift and nourish you. When you slip out of balance, your desires become non-nurturing. Relationships will be dysfunctional and eating habits will be unhealthy. You may crave junk food, neglect to sleep and exercise, and indulge in compulsive behaviors.
In Ayurveda, the approach to disorders is to eliminate the root cause of the illness rather than focusing on specific symptoms. Ayurveda judges every treatment approach in terms of its effect on the entire mind/body system. A practitioner will first determine how far a person has fallen from their ideal state of health and then designs a personalized approach to move him or her back into healthy balance. Purification treatments, herbal preparations, diet and specific life-style recommendations are given to support the body's natural healing and self-purifying abilities.
