This disturbance of the equilibrium is seen in Ayurvedic teachings as the cause of disease. Ayurveda teaches that the human body has its own natural healing intelligence and is capable of rejuvenating itself by cultivating a proper diet, daily routine and healthy lifestyle. When one’s own uniqueness is discovered, health may be achieved and maintained through herbal remedies, massage, purification therapies, yoga and spiritual practices which restore the balance of the whole being.
The Ayurvedic way of life embraces the concept that we can listen to and address the unique needs of our body, mind and spirit and it all starts with knowing ourselves. Keeping ourselves healthy and prevention of disease are the main goals of Ayurveda. Ayurveda is a holistic approach that considers the entirety of the being to create a harmonious way of life that is natural and free of harmful side effects.
