What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda literally means the “Science of Life”. It is a science that is over 5000 years old to its’ native land of India. It was realized during the Vedic period when people known as Rishis or “seers” used their bodies and minds as scientific tools to study the true nature of reality. They found they were able to penetrate the physical field into the field of consciousness and beyond to experientially understand the true nature of reality. From this deep place of understanding, over several thousands of years Ayurveda has developed into what it is today; a comprehensive method of truly holistic health that is able to address all manifestations of imbalance from the subtle emotional disturbance to the most intense forms of Disease.
Perhaps the greatest characteristic of Ayurveda is how it views each person as an individual. Every person is different and what works for one may not be so good for another. It sees the physical individual is made of differing percentages of certain qualities that correlate to the elements of Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Through this viewing glass Ayurveda perceives a treatment plan and/or lifestyle changes that is based around what is right for the individual.
“Our greatest teacher dwells within our own heart. If one can awaken their understanding through learning and experiencing the science of life, one can become their own master, living an extraordinary life with a healthy spirit, mind, and body.” – Aaron Schwaller
