Ayurveda, the “Science of Life” is the millenary science of well being. It is one of the most ancient knowledge which aims to help the individual better understand and balance his natural tendencies. Ayurveda is based on the fundamental laws of nature and helps us reach a more balanced, fulfilled, healthy and happy life.
It is a system of care based on the primary elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether which in the human body regroup two by two and form the “Doshas” - the three main forces of health and well being in the human body. These are: VATA (air and ether), PITTA (fire and water) and KAPHA (water and earth).
Discomfort, either physical or emotional is only a reflection of the imbalance of the doshas. Consequently, a state of inner peace, confidence, harmony and well being are the result of the balance of the elements.
Once we understand our type (Vata, Pitta or Kapha or a combination of these) we can make better choices in life in terms of the food that we eat, types of activities, spices and ayurvedic treatments we can receive so we keep our mind and body in a state of balance.
Ayurvedic Consultation – Understand your natural tendencies
The consultation can help us identify your constitutional type (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) which is essential to the Ayurvedic Treatment. This can give you more insights into your natural tendencies and help you make better choices in terms of food, activities, spices, emotions, thoughts, etc., that tend to either balance or unbalance your nature. The consultation can also be a great tool to address a very specifc physical or emotional issue.
