What is Daily Ayurveda?
Daily Ayurveda is a platform to educate people about the fundamental principles of Ayurveda and make it accessible and feasible for everybody to follow. My goal is to share this ancient knowledge in clear and simple manner. Most of us live extremely busy lives, and in the hustle and bustle of modern day society we seem to have forgotten the most important thing of all: to care for ourselves. When we lose sight of our physical, mental, and spiritual well being, not only do we begin to suffer, but those around us suffer as well. The goal of Daily Ayurveda is to provide people with powerful yet practical tools that they can use to promote health and well being on all dimensions.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda (pronounced i-yer-vay-da) is a rich and holistic nature based medical system designed to prevent disease, promote health, and unlock the potential for living beings to thrive. It is the oldest surviving medical system in the world, dating back over 5,000 years to ancient India. “Ayurveda” is derived from the Sanskrit words “ayus” (life) and “ved” (wisdom). Ayurvedic medicine is a complete system because is rooted in all 4 dimensions of health: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. One of the main premises of Ayurveda is that each person has a unique constitution of doshas, or elemental vital bioenergies, known as Vata (air and space), Pitta (fire and water), and Kapha (earth and water). By assessing a person’s unique combination of these elements, we can help determine their individual physical and mental characteristics and detect imbalances that may be contributing to disease. Using this information, we can customize a plan to optimize the patient's health and well being so they can reach their highest potential. The sister science to Yoga, Ayurveda teaches us how to live in balance with nature, and learn how to be at peace with ourselves so we can then reflect that happiness and abundance to those around us.
