Ayurveda is a natural system of health and wellbeing and the sister-science to yoga. It originated in India thousands of years ago.
As a Complementary and Alternative Medicine Ayurveda can support your health needs in various ways. Ayurveda uses diet, herbal remedies, lifestyle tools and body therapies to establish health in body and mind.
Like Chinese medicine, Ayurveda is based on the five elements of nature. They are earth, air, fire, water and ether. According to Ayurveda, these elements are present in our environment around us as well as within us.
Good health is a state of balance of these five elements. Maintaining balance is the key and that involves many things. Your diet, lifestyle, relationships and habitat are all factors which can affect your natural state of balance. If you know your body type you can create a healthy lifestyle and greater well being.
