Ayurveda is the oldest surviving complete medical system in the world. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.” Ayurveda originated in India more than 5000 years ago. It is considered the mother of all healing systems. Ayurveda defines health as a perfect state of balance among the body’s three fundamental energies, or doshas, and the body, mind, and spirit.
The doshas are energies that govern all physical and mental processes. They derive from the Five Elements and their related properties. Vata is composed of Space and Air, Pitta of Fire and Water, and Kapha of Earth and Water. We each have a constitution comprised of a unique combination of all three doshas that determines our physical, mental, and emotional characteristics and predispositions. An imbalance in any of the doshas can cause dis-ease.
There are numerous forces that can throw each person’s individual mix of doshas out of balance. Changes in age, the alternating hot and cold of the seasons, unhealthy diet, insufficient exercise, shifting thoughts, feelings, and repressed emotions are among the numerous factors that can disturb our doshic balance. The most potent unbalancing force in modern culture is excess stress from work, relationships, economics, or just the fast pace of life in the 21st century.
In advance of your first Ayurvedic consultation you will take a questionnaire that will help determine your unique dosha. The consultation will focus on your unique needs based on your innate constitution (Prakruti), and imbalances (Vikruti). You will learn about Ayurveda principles and practices for general overall health and well being through diet, lifestyle and seasonal routines.
The Ayurvedic lifestyle practices that can be recommended to bring you back in balance may include:
- Diet and lifestyle
- Daily and seasonal routines
- Ayurvedic therapies
- Yoga poses
- Pranayama (breathing practices)
The initial consultation is approximately 90 minutes. Follow-ups are approximately 45 minutes.
