"I believe that beauty on the outside begins on the inside. Your body is a continues living system, which has got ability to cleanse, repair, heal and renew.  I believe in healthy and joyfull living by fuelling yourself with healthy foods, offering your mind tranquil spaces of meditation, exercising and using natural remedies when the body is out of balance."

Ayurveda is an ancient system of healing which originated 5000 years ago in India. In Sanskrit ‘Ayu’ means life and ‘Veda’ means knowledge, so Ayurveda is often referred to as the ‘science of life’, a system which achieves and maintains health. According to the wisdom of Ayurveda, the mind and body has the intelligence to heal itself.

The conceptual model that Ayurvedic treatment uses to understand the principles of nature’s functioning is called the theory of five great elements: earth, water, fire, air and space.  These elements conglomerate within the human body to form three basic physiological principles (doshas) that govern all bodily functions.  The three doshas are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Each dosha is composed of two elements and from these elements each receives its specific character.

Vata is associated with air and space and is translated as ‘wind’ or ‘that which moves things’. It is responsible for all body’s activities and sensations. It governs the movement of air in and out of lungs, blood through circulatory system, promotes mental adaptability, comprehension etc.

Pitta is associated with fire and water and is translated as ‘that which digest things’. It is responsible for all chemical and metabolic transformations in the body such as digestion of food, stimulation of intellect, production of heat in the body.

Kapha is associated with water and earth and is translated as ‘that which holds things together’. Kapha gives strength and stability for physical and psychological body, governs emotions, gives lubrication to the bodily structures e.g. joints, mucous membranes etc.

 

Each person has a unique blend of above doshas, known as person’s constitution, which is why Ayurvedic treatment is always individualized.  In Ayurveda, disease is viewed as a state of imbalance in one or more doshas within an individual.

Viewing diseases as the natural end product of imbalance in Vata, Pitta, Kapha, Ayurveda and Ayurvedic treatment emphasizes that re-establishing harmony and balance of the three doshas will bring about a state of optimal health in our bodies and mind.  To restore the equilibrium in the living body Ayurvedic treatment offers variety of remedies such as herbal remedies, yoga, meditation, massage therapies and detoxification techniques.  The main method of detoxification is called Panchakarma.

Panchakarma (purification) is a cleansing process that not only treats diseases but also improves health to achieve longevity and rejuvenation.  Cleansing treatments gently and effectively loosen any metabolic impurities and environmental toxins from tissues, mobilize these impurities to where they can be eliminated and finally eliminate them from different routes e.g. skin, small intestine, colon, kidney, nose, eyes etc.

These therapies not only treat diseases but also strengthen weak organs, return all systems of the body to a state of balance, and prevent diseases in the future.
