Ayurveda is the ancient and time-tested Indian art of balancing the physical, mental and emotional elements of life. Literally translated as the Science of Life, it is a comprehensive system of healthcare with origins that go back about 3,500 – 4,000 years.
Since then, it has been the most important medical system used in India, with clearly defined methods of effectively treating ailments affecting all organs and systems of the body. It is used for healing the sick, preventing illness occurring in the first place, and to help individuals lead a longer, healthier and more vibrant life.
In our fast paced, modern western world, those who turn to Ayurveda often find it brings immeasurable benefits to their life as a whole. One criticism of modern medicine can be that it often treats the symptoms rather than the cause of illness. Ayurveda, however, treats the cause, thereby curing dis-ease where other approaches fail.
Ayurvedic treatments are tailored to the individual. Everyone is different, therefore every treatment is different. A consultation would normally consist of:
- Clinical examination, pulse reading and diagnosis of imbalances
- Treatment to balance the body system as a whole (the three Doshas consisting of vata, pitta and kapha)
- Prescription of medicinal herbs
Some common ailments that can be successfully treated with Ayurveda:
- Low energy
- Digestive problems
- Chronic constipation
- Sleep problems
- Skin problems
- Hair loss
- Low libido
- Women’s health: menstruation, PMS, pre-conception, fertility, pregnancy, post child birth, menopause
- Male fertility
