Ayurveda

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest health care system and originates from the Indian subcontinent. Ayurveda is a word in Sanskrit language that translates to "science (or wisdom) of life" ; Ayur meaning life and veda knowledge or wisdom. Ayurveda is as old as the Indus valley's civilizations dating back to 3000 BC. Having a continuous tradition of professional practice, research and education, Ayurveda has become an inseparable part of the culture and daily lifestyle of traditional families in India. Among the Vedic system of knowledge Ayurveda is part of the Atharva Veda. During the last thirty years, many original Ayurvedic Sanskrit texts have been translated into various European languages, including English. Ayurveda recognizes the uniqueness of each person by recognizing the unique body type and psychological personality of each person.
Ayurveda also does not limit itself to physical or psychological dimensions. It considers spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical, social, environmental and universal levels of each person as well.
Ayurveda does not simply treat symptoms but strives to determine the root - cause of an imbalanced state of health and brings back a person into a balanced life.
In Ayurvedic herbology a combination of herbs, plants and minerals is used to bring back a person into balance.
Ayurveda emphasizes disease prevention and health balancing through lifestyle, diet, herbs and yogic methods for improving the state of mind. It is one of the oldest - and longest proven system to promote health - considering the individual as whole and unique on all levels: body, mind and spirit.
