What is Ayurveda?

about ayurveda picture

Ayurveda is an ancient science of healing, originating in India. Though it is strongly associated with the Indian subcontinent, its culture and religion, it is a universal science, which can be applied anywhere and anytime. The old tradition of Ayurveda validates its power and efficacy.

Ayurveda, in its long tradition, is not folklore medicine, but a rational and objective approach to health management, disease prevention, cure from disease, rejuvenation and revitalisation.

Ayurveda complements or provides an excellent alternative to allopathic medicine when dealing with chronic conditions. Western medicine is very efficient in reducing pain and dealing with emergencies. However, its weak point lies in dealing with long lasting conditions that originate from faulty diet and lifestyle such as obesity, diabetes, arthritis, stress and its related conditions, digestive disorders like IBS, colitis, various skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Ayurveda can, if not cure the condition, provide great relief, better disease management and thus improve the patient’s lifestyle.

The main aim of Ayurveda is to achieve balance within the body and mind and with the environment around us. To be in balance is to be relaxed. At Jivita Ayurveda you can find a great selection of relaxation therapies. You can come for a health consultation and find the best way for you to be in balance.

The key words of Ayurveda are holism and balance. Holistic approach to health comprises all the aspects of an individual’s life especially diet. The balance is achieved by constantly adapting to the environment around us.
