What is Ayurveda?
AYURVEDA | THE SCIENCE OF LIFE
From the Sanskrit AYUR - meaning ‘life’ and VEDA – meaning ‘knowledge’ AYURVEDA quite literally means the knowledge of life and to have an understanding of Ayurveda is to have a blueprint for good mental and physical health.
According to Ayurveda, all disease is caused by impaired Agni. Agni comes from the Sanskrit word for fire, and so you can think of this as your ‘digestive fire. When our digestion is not working optimally this creates toxins, known as “Ama” which circulate around the body and lead to illness. Toxins can be both from incorrect food and lifestyle choices as well as emotional toxins from unresolved issues or trauma. The first stage of Ayurvedic treatment involves enhancing the bodies' own system for dispelling toxins, by strengthening Agni. During Ayurvedic treatment herbs are taken to balance one’s digestive fire, and help to dislodge the ama in the body while also supporting the ‘detox’ or elimination process. Over time, if one is able to follow the dietary and lifestyle advice along with their herbs, balance is restored to the Agni, toxins are reduced and eliminated – and the body comes back to into balance.
