Ayurveda is originally a Sanskrit term derived from two words which have separate powerful meanings. Ayur is a Sanskrit term for “life”. Veda on the other hand means Knowledge. Actually in Sanskrit it means Sacred Knowledge. Ayurveda, thus means “knowledge of life.” In Ayurvedic science a person is believed to be made up of five basic elements from the Universe: Space, Air, Fire, Water and the Earth. These combine to form the human body and embody the three energies, known in Sanskrit as Vata, Pitta and Kapha; Vata meaning space and air, Pitta - the fire and water and Kapha - water and earth.
It is the imbalances of these energies that lead to sickness. Hence the Science of Ayurveda seeks to maintain a balance of these energies through a healthy lifestyle and diet. The ancient texts of Ayurveda classify these energies of human body into antagonistic pairs. While imbalances in these pairs lead to disease, Ayurveda applies the opposite to restore the balance.Thus Ayurveda is treatment to ailing human body caused by certain imbalances through application of appropriate balance restoring energy.
Ayurveda is practised for a healthy life. An Ayurvedic practitioner diagnoses ailments based on the cause of such ailment and prepares a treatment plan that is specifically designed for a particular individual. Ayurveda takes into account the unique physical and emotional build up of an individual and seeks to restore any imbalances that might be causing the ailments through natural treatment.
Natural treatment may include application of natural oil extracts, herbs and massage among other things. The aim is to cleanse accumulated toxins from within the cells and tissues and restore balance within the body
