What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year-old healing system founded in ancient India. It is derived from the Sanskrit word “ayus” meaning life, and “veda” meaning wisdom. Ayurveda, the wisdom of life, offers a proven guide for a life of happiness, vitality, love and purpose. From the Ayurvedic perspective, human beings are not viewed as mere thinking physical machines, but rather as fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the energy and information of the environment. Health is a state of vibrant balance in which all the layers of one’s life are integrated.
