THE ANCIENT WISDOM OF AYURVEDA
The natural healing science of Ayurveda is rooted in ancient India with its origins dating 5000 years ago. Today, Ayurveda is a continuously evolving system practiced by well over 100 million individuals in Sri Lanka, Nepal and in the West. Ayurveda, an intricate natural health system, focuses on creating balance in all aspects of life. Ayurveda provides guidelines for healthy living as well as therapeutic measures that aim to restore physical, mental, social, spiritual and environmental harmony.
Ayurveda recognizes three fundamental constitutional energies correlated to the elements of nature. It is the balance of the elements, as described by doshas, which regulate all our mind, body, spirit processes and balance. They are Vata (either & air), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth).
