If you are one of those thousands of people who are looking for a natural, safe, yet effective approach to well-being, then….
Welcome to the World of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is the world’s most ancient system of preventive health care and was developed in India over 6,000 years ago. Ayurveda, which translates from Sanskrit as “knowledge or science of life”, is a natural approach to creating balance and strengthening the body’s healing abilities.
It is now recognized as one of the most important systems of mind-body medicine and its popularity is spreading throughout the world.
It involves a holistic view of man, his health, and illness. It is based on the idea that the body, mind, and spirit are interconnected and that all three must be “balanced” to achieve the highest degree of health.
Ayurveda is a way of healing and a way of life that always takes into consideration the whole person. According to the teachings of Ayurveda, every aspect of your life contributes to your overall health. Poor health seldom has a simple or single cause.
Ayurveda is Rapidly Gaining in Popularity.
Ayurveda is recognized by the World Health Organization and is widely practiced in India, where there are more than 300,000 Ayurvedic physicians and 100 Ayurvedic medical schools. It is currently used to treat between 70-80% of the Indian population.
Ayurveda has become increasingly popular in the West, where it was virtually unknown until the mid-’80s when Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Dr. Deepak Chopra MD, Dr. Vasant Ladd MD. BAMS. and others, fostered a global revival and restoration.
It must be emphasized that Ayurveda is not a substitute for Western allopathic medicine. There are many instances when the disease process and acute conditions can best be treated with drugs or surgery. Ayurveda can be used in conjunction with Western medicine to make a person stronger and less likely to be afflicted with disease and/or to rebuild the body after being treated with drugs or surgery.
Ayurveda, can definitely bring longevity to life. It can bring a quality of consciousness, such that one can get an insight to be able to deal with one’s inner life, one’s inner emotions, one’s inner hurt, grief and sadness.
Ayurveda is a total healing art.
With the guidance of a Qualified Ayurvedic Physician, the aim of Ayurveda is:
To maintain the health of people who are well.
To cure the diseases of those who are sick.
In this respect, Ayurveda is unique.
