Ayurveda, the science (Veda) of life (Ayus), is a part of the world's oldest and most well-documented comprehensive health care system. According to Ayurveda, harmony at the level of the Body, Mind and Spirit is true health. Ayurveda emphasizes the individual rather than a disease. The concept of body constitution distinguishes Ayurveda from many other healing sciences.
Ayurvedic science is aimed at the preservation of health and prevention of disease by establishing balance and harmony through nutrition, herbs, meditation, and daily routines. Ayurvedic science provides knowledge to unfold the reality beyond the physical body and achieve harmony of Body, Mind and Spirit. The World Health Organization recognizes Ayurveda as a complete natural health care system.
There is a unique opportunity in this day and age to lead successful lives by assisting family, friends and clients in creating healthier bodies and lifestyles, thus eventually lowering health care costs.
