The ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda, the ‘science of life’, goes back 5,000 years and involves how foods, herbs, emotions, climate and lifestyle impact the dynamics of our own physiology and psychology.
Ayurveda treats on a holistic level. Ayurveda goes by the principle that disease is caused by bioenergy imbalances between the three ‘humours’ of ‘Tridoshas’ of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. We rebalance these humours through natural remedies and changes in diet. The three ‘Gunas’ (forces) that form nature and also influence the human body – Satwa, Raja and Tama, represent the three forces of modern physics: nuclear, electro and gravitational force.
Ayurveda has a rich tradition of specialised detoxifying therapies – such as steam therapy, oil massage, and Panchakarma the- rapy – and special rejuvenation treatments for body and mind which stimulate immunity and slow down degeneration. Ayurveda also offers a variety of herbal and pharmaceutical preparations – decoctions, oils and powders for both internal and external use, ghee, jams and jellies.
