Daily Ayurveda is a platform to educate people about the Ancient Holistic System of Ayurveda so we can learn how to optimize our health by balancing the body, mind, and soul.
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.
