“Ayurveda shows us how to understand the language of nature, the language of life, so that we can live in harmony with the greater universe, evolving not only for ourselves but bringing benefit to all creatures. Ayurveda contains the secrets not only for healing the individual but also for uplifting society, all creatures and the planet itself.” – David Frawley
Ayurveda is arguably the world’s oldest holistic healing system, dating back at least 5,000 years ago. Outlawed in India by British imperialists in 1833, it was preserved in rural areas of India by traditional Ayurvedic families. Almost two centuries later and half a world away, modern science is now recognizing the incredible efficacy of Ayurvedic practices in healing disease and imbalances of the modern world.
Translated from Sanskrit, the word Ayurveda means the science, or study, of life. Ayurveda reminds us that we, too, are part of the natural world; and that when we align with the principles and rhythms of nature, we support our body’s inherent ability to heal and thrive.
At its foundation, Ayurveda seeks to restore balance to a person’s natural constitution, or prakriti. Everyone’s prakriti consists of the three doshas or bio-energies–Kapha, Vata, and Pitta–in varying proportions. When one or more of these doshas is out of balance, this can cause illness and lead to disease.
