Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurveda is the mother of all healing arts on our planet. The healing system of the yogis, it predates all healing systems and all forms of medicine. The ancient masters and sages developed this science about five thousand years ago and recorded its knowledge in the Vedic texts Atharva and The Rig. The Ayurvedic approach is totally holistic. Its tools are herbs, gems, steam therapy, aromatherapy, mantras, and meditation. The philosophy of Ayurveda is to help people heal themselves. A unique quality of Ayurveda is that healing is promoted by balancing the different energies in the body. These energies are known as doshas, or biological humors. The five elements (ether, air, fire, water, and earth) are combined in three ways:
  • vata (ether and air): moves the energies and nutrients of the body
  • pitta (mainly fire): controls metabolism and digestion of nutrients and energies of the body
  • kapha (water and earth): provides strength and tissue development at all levels of the body
Our Ayurveda program consists of detoxification and rejuvenation, known as pancha karma. The main benefits derived from pancha karma therapy are:
  • increased digestion
  • improved absorption and assimilation of all nutrients at the physical and spiritual levels
  • elimination of all toxins
  • rebuilding of body tissues
  • rejuvenation
  • longevity
  • normalization of the menstrual cycle
  • increased emotional and mental clarity
Although Ayurveda is intended for the promotion of longevity, maintaining health and preventing decay is necessary as well. Ayurvedic medicine is also used for treating such imbalances as arthritis, high/low blood pressure, cholesterol imbalances, mental imbalances, migraines, asthma, chronic fatigue, constipation, poor digestion, hemorrhoids, diabetes, and kidney imbalances.
