Ayur=life Veda=wisdom or science
As a traditional form of medicine, Ayurveda originates from the Vedic Period in India 5,000 years ago. Over the centuries it has been practiced and codified in ancient texts, evolving into an integral part of India’s culture.
Ayurveda is distinctive in a variety of aspects:
Ayurveda respects the uniqueness of a person. Ayurveda considers every aspect of the human system by recognizing that we all exist on a physical, social, familial, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, behavioral and cosmic level. We are not just a body but a body, mind and soul.
Ayurveda views health to be the responsibility of the individual. Its motto is “you are your own healer.” In identifying the problem, Ayurvedic counselors can help the person to understand the root cause of imbalance. But, the real healing is done by the individual – the true healer (you).
Ayurveda identifies with the rhythm of nature. We are living “life” which Ayurveda considers to be “the period of time where an uninterrupted flow of nature occurs through form.” Therefore, we should learn to thrive with the rhythm of nature in all of its phases and connections. It makes sense that we utilize nature’s routines and remedies to heal and balance ourselves.
