Modern lifestyle is all about fast paced solutions to everyday problems but true health and wellness demands a little extra on your part. Your body deserves sustainability and inner strength to overcome any challenge, something that can come out only through nature’s loving care. THAT is Ayurveda’s core belief – the existence of natural core energies in the human body that can be channelized and supplemented to achieve health and wellness. Whether it be through Ayurvedic herbs or fixing one’s habits, Ayurveda aims to streamline the bodily systems so the disease can be cured. In this blog post series, we will delve deeper into this amazing healing science and understand the ancient fundamentals that make it so unique and effective:
A little history
The roots of Ayurveda can be found in ancient India, going back as far as 4000 to 5000 years. You can very well imagine the fact that this healing science has stood the test of time. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally translates as “the wisdom of life” or “the knowledge of longevity”. In accordance with this definition, Ayurvedic medicine views health as much more than the absence of disease. The methodology and philosophy covers a variety of human conditions and medical requirements including toxicology, surgery, pediatrics, fertility, rejuvenation and general medicine. This complete system has evolved over centuries of nature based research, development of ayurvedic herbs and medicines and understanding of the human body.
In our next post, we will touch upon the basic principles that make up Ayurveda.
