Ayurveda (ancient Sanskrit) translates as “knowledge of life”. It is knowledge that gives us guidelines for health and longetivity. It is one of the oldest forms of medicine known in existence and originated from the Indian Subcontinent. Ayurveda is an ancient medical science that pertains to the concepts of universal interconnectedness, the body's constitution (prakriti), life forces (doshas) and more. Treatments consist of internal purification, other treatments, herbal and other substance remedies, nutrition and lifestyle guidelines, and yoga. Ayurveda is recognised as a Traditional Medicine System by the World Health Organization and Ayurveda is gaining in global recognition and respect. It is also being researched and backed by increasing scientific evidence as well as being upgraded, as has been the tradition since the beginning. The only downside to actual Ayurveda is it's commercialization and presentation in New Age Culture. An important essence of an Ayurvedic practitioner, known in Sanskrit as ‘Vaidya’, is to facilitate a person ‘to revive or to return’ to his or her state of ‘inherit natural balance’. Ayurvedic wisdom is simple, gentle, loving and down to earth.
