Ayurveda or "science of life" is a traditional Indian medicine system created over 5,000 years ago, which allows us to lead a happy, healthy and peaceful life through a set of practical and simple guidelines. Through these principles we can bring the body and mind in perfect balance.
The word "Ayurveda" consists of two words, Ayus (life) and Veda (science) and together they mean "The knowledge of life."
The science of Ayurveda has developed over thousands of years and is currently at the forefront of body-mind-spirit medicines and is gaining acceptance worldwide.
The main Objectives of Ayurveda are:
TREAT AND CURE
PROMOTE HEALTH (PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL)
LIVING IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
Ayurveda offers specific and very personalized recommendations for each individual, about lifestyle, diet, exercise, plant therapies, sleep and spiritual practices, to encourage, recover and maintain the balance of body and mind.
Food is a fundamental part of Ayurveda. Their diet is based on the individual constitution, so each person has their own dietary needs. A healthy and above all varied diet must be taken and when choosing what you want to eat you must take into account the season, the weather, the time of day, the characteristics of each food as well as the emotional state at the time of eating.
Ayurveda is currently recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO), by the European Organization of Complementary Medicines (EPHA), by the Center for Alternative and Complementary Medicines of the USA (NCCAM) as the world's first alternative medicine for its therapeutic value.
