What is Ayurveda?

Although you might not have heard of Ayurveda before, it’s actually the world’s oldest medical system.

Ayurveda is the ancient science of life. In fact, the word actually means ‘life science’ – Ayur = life, Veda = science. Originating in ancient India, this holistic medical system has been practiced for over 5000 years and it is still widely used throughout India today.

With its foundations in the use of herbal compounds, special diets, and other unique health practices, Ayurveda focuses on achieving physical and mental harmony with nature.

Offering guidance on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diets, and behaviours, as well as the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is about finding the balance between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
