Ayurvedic medicine, or Ayurveda for short, is one of the worlds oldest forms of holistic medicine. Originating in India, this “Mother of All Healing” can be dated back to around 5000 years, with some evidence suggesting that the practice of Ayurvedic medicine may even be as old as 10,000 year. It has been referred to as the “Mother of All Healing”, because many natural healing systems, like acupuncture, homeopathy, aromatherapy to name a few, have their roots in Ayurveda.

​The emphasis of Ayurveda is on disease prevention through the balance of one’s life, in all aspects, such as physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The Ayurvedic philosophy states that the universe is made up of the 5 great elements (ether, wind, water, fire and earth) which come together in a specific pattern to create the “tridosha”. The tridosha are made up of the vata (wind) dosha, the pitta (fire) dosha and the kapha (phlegm) dosha. The tridosha are represented in every aspect of what makes up a person, with there being a more predominant, a secondary and a least predominant. In keeping with this philosophy, the primary cause of disease is an excess or deficiency of the doshas within the body.

​Ayurvedic medicine doesn’t separate the mind, body and spirit, all must be considered when maintaining balance and health. the 3 doshas work together in the body when there is balance and create symptoms when there is imbalance. An Ayurvedic practitioner will diagnose these symptoms through observation, palpation, and discussion and will offer treatment through diet, lifestyle and herbal therapy with the goal of returning balance to the body.
