The literal translation would be Life (Ayur) Science or knowledge (Veda). In effect, it is the ancient wisdom and science passed down for thousands of years integrating the mind, body and spirit as one functioning system. It is said that longevity and optimum health can be achieved when the system is in balance. Ayurveda helps us find and keep that balance! It will work for those who are healthy and want to stay well or those who have become out of balance and are living with disease. Depending on the severity of the condition, Ayurveda offers a long or short path back to good health. Working in conjunction with your doctor, there are many Ayurvedic remedies and lifestyle changes that are suggested. Deciding where to start can be challenging, but once you find a good practitioner who you resonate with, you should start seeing results. I suggest using the NAMA site to find someone in your area or work with me! I’m on Zoom, too! Let’s get you started! https://www.ayurvedanama.org/ .
