“What is Health?”, was a question that came to light five thousand years ago. The answer to this question marked the beginning of the oldest science of life and the tradition of holistic health care. Originated from the Indian subcontinent, this treasure of knowledge was given the name Ayurveda.
What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a five-thousand-year-old herbal health science from India. It aims to prevent illness for healthy individuals and to manage diseases for unhealthy individuals. It enables us to achieve physical, mental, and emotional harmony through healthy and customised dietary habits and lifestyle routine advice.
Recognised by the World Health Organisation as the most effective system of holistic wellness, Ayurveda was the first science to define the nature of Life and the dimensions of Health. According to Ayurveda, Life is a symbiosis of body, senses, mind and soul. Therefore Health is three dimensional:
1) Physically, Health is the state of Harmony between functional humours, gross and subtle metabolism, structural refinement and evacuation.
2) Mentally, Health is the harmony of thoughts, senses and emotions.
3) Spiritually, Health is the contentment of the soul.
The conventional systems of medicine lacks the insight in the science of holistic wellness. You are not a healthy person if you eat organic food, exercise well and don’t get sick. One becomes healthy when one is in harmony with oneself and the world. Health is the destination you reach, when you learn the art of living well. Ayurveda is your Guide in this holistic journey of being healthy
Developed approximately between 1700 B.C. and 500 A.D., the first reference for Ayurveda is found in the oldest written literature on the planet - the Vedas.
Considered as one of the most effective alternative healthcare systems in the world, Ayurveda uses natural herbal supplements for therapy.
Holistic wellness does not means healing only the body, but establishing overall harmony of body, mind, senses, intellect, memory and soul.
