Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of Medicine and health care that originated around five thousand years ago in India. As a medical science Ayurveda is concerned with preventing illness and enhancing quality of life. The word Ayurveda is composed of two Sanskrit terms - 'Ayur' meaning life and 'Veda' meaning science/knowledge. According to Ayurveda good health is the balanced and dynamic Interaction between our environment, body, mind and spirit. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital whilst realizing their ultimate human potential.

Ayurveda emphasizes “Prevention is better than cure”. A person who maintains a healthy lifestyle will be affected less by disease. The stress and strain of everyday life is a major factor behind chronic diseases, with the general lack of exercise, a polluted environment, and poor diet, further increasing the potential for chronic diseases.

Ayurvedic treatments are performed only after a thorough examination by a fully qualified, highly experienced, Ayurvedic physician. Such a consultation addresses a person’s health concerns from an all-encompassing physical, emotional, and spiritual perspective.
