Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India and the oldest system of Health Care in the world. A system of both preventative and curative medicine, it has been practiced for at least 5000 years and perhaps as long as 10,000 years.
Ayurveda understands that each person is unique and as a result, each person’s path toward optimal health is unique. Ayurveda is not only an eight-pronged system of medicine, it is also a philosophy of living in harmony with the whole of nature. This practice helps individuals to know what types of food, colours, aromas, sounds and touch will create a state of balance and harmony in the body and mind. When the body and mind are in harmony, normal physiology is restored and healing takes place.
Achieving healthfulness and prosperity are primary goals of Ayurveda for which it provides specific sadhanas, sacred everyday practices for living in harmony with Self and Nature: dinacharya (daily practice); ritucharya (seasonal practice); sadvritta (moral observance). In daily routine, Ayurveda places great emphasis on ahara – food. In my lifestyle consultations we take a look at aspects of your current routine, then identify your metabolic constitution (dosha) before curating an individualised daily and seasonal routine according to your nature.
