AYURVEDIC HEALTH COACHING
What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is “The science of life.” It is the traditional natural medicine of India, dating back over five thousand years. It is a very comprehensive health care system, which takes into account every aspect of the person and the environment. In The United States, Ayurveda falls under CAM, which stands for Complimentary & Alternative Medicine. Ayurveda supports and respects all traditional medical treatments and works along with them.
Ayurveda was created for everyone. Its purpose is to heal and maintain the quality and longevity of life. It focuses heavily on disease prevention. The goal of Ayurveda is to practice good health and bring the body back in balance, as opposed to strictly fighting disease. However, protocols are geared towards the person's specific health concerns, to help restore balance.
Ayurveda embraces disciplines that support our health, such as massage, herbal medicines, surgical procedures, exercise as well as other physical modalities, rejuvenation of the body, as well as psychological and spiritual counseling.
How does Ayurveda define health? The definition of health in Ayurveda is when all 3 doshas, digestive fire, all the body tissues & components, all the physiological processes are in perfect harmony and the soul, the sense organs and the mind are in total satisfaction and content.
When "agni" (digestive fire) becomes imbalanced, it causes the doshas to become imbalanced, which starts the beginning of the disease process. Ayurveda recognizes that all diseases have a phycological component as well as physical and emotional. We look at the mind and the body as "one," not as separate functions.
