Why Ayurveda , Origins of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine that originated in India over 5,000 years ago. The word “Ayurveda” is derived from Sanskrit, with “Ayur” meaning life and “Veda” meaning knowledge or science. This holistic approach to health and wellness focuses on balancing the mind, body, and spirit to prevent illness and promote overall well-being.

The roots of Ayurveda can be traced back to ancient texts known as the Vedas, specifically the Atharvaveda and the Rigveda. These texts contain detailed descriptions of various herbs, treatments, and practices used in Ayurvedic medicine.

People choose Ayurveda for a variety of reasons, including its emphasis on natural remedies, personalized treatment plans, and focus on prevention. Ayurveda views each individual as unique, with their own specific mind-body constitution known as “doshas.” By understanding and balancing these doshas, Ayurveda aims to restore harmony and promote health in a holistic way.
