Ayurveda originates from India. It has been called the science of health and longevity for more than 5,000 years. He works with the five main elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth), which are found in different proportions in everything in our universe, including the human body. These elements make up the doshas, i.e. body/mind types (vata, pitta, kapha). According to Ayurveda, everyone is born with a mixture of these three doshas. Determining your primary dosha is the first step toward finding your optimal state of balanced, natural health.
Optimum health requires a balance of doshas, which can be achieved through Ayurvedic lifestyle practices, daily routine, use of herbs, meditation, yoga and eating according to our type.
The name Ayurveda is derived from two Sanskrit words, "ayuh" meaning life or long life and "veda" meaning science or sacred knowledge. The definition of Ayurveda therefore roughly translates to the science of longevity or the sacred knowledge of life.
Ayurveda is rooted in a holistic tradition and way of life that can help us all manifest our well-being.
Ayurveda can help us in all of these:
- harmony with our truest inner nature
- respecting and developing our strengths
- refining our challenges
- transformation of harmful tendencies
- maintaining balance in the face of difficulties
In other words, Ayurveda is not simply about taking an herbal formula and waiting for results. Instead, Ayurveda encourages you to be an active participant in your journey to healing.
This includes learning about the relationship with the elements and the unique combinations they create called doshas.
During the Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle consultation, after answering an online questionnaire, the personal consultation is followed by the completion of two tests. Based on one of the tests, we determine the individual's dosha prakriti - the type with which he was born, i.e. his nature. The other test shows the dosha vikruti - the current state and the imbalances that may have been caused by improper lifestyle, diet, long-term depressing thoughts or emotions.
Our goal is to return to dosha prakriti, or at least to get as close to it as possible. Ayurveda is the science of health and longevity, and yoga is the science of self-realization, which together can promote the health of the body, mind, emotions and senses. Ayurveda and yoga recognize that each person has a unique mind-body-spirit framework that requires individual care to bring balance, hope, energy, flexibility and health to your life. No one practice suits everyone - during times of change, aging and transition, we can bring balance to our lives by adapting our life practice.
