Ayurveda (or “knowledge of life”) is one of the world’s oldest and most respected systems for health and wellness, a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy and, also, create the opportunity to realise one’s full human potential.
Ayurveda operates on the timeless evidence that great health only happens when mind, body, and spirit is in balance.
Unfortunately, when these are out of balance, the opposite is true.
I can help.
In Ayurveda, there are three distinct body types and, through helping you identify what kind you are, treatments are designed to heal and recapture the ideal balance for your specific constitution (mind-body type) and, in turn, help prevent further health issues.
In short, Ayurveda sees each client through this lens, and so promises an unchangeable understanding about the optimal choices each person should always make in all aspects of their diet and lifestyle in order to feel their very best.
Ayurveda aims to:
Prevention has always been the first and major goal of ayurveda. According to the most ancient ayurvedic text, Charaka Samhita, only when the physician has failed in that first goal does he or she need to resort to the second goal — which is cure.
“How disease develops, the field called pathogenesis, is an important area of Ayurveda. Ayurveda identifies six stages in the development of disease. In the first two of the six stages, there are no symptoms. In the third stage there may be vague, non-specific symptoms, such as fatigue and general malaise, which become more pronounced in the fourth stage. Only in the fifth stage do symptoms manifest that are specific to a particular disease.”
While conventional medicine uses valuable diagnostic tools to detect disease in an early stage, such as blood tests and X-rays, they are able to detect disease only after it has become physically manifest — for example, a small tumor or an elevated blood sugar. According to Ayurveda, this would be in the fourth or fifth stage of pathogenesis. Ayurveda aims to detect disease at an earlier stage, before it becomes clinically manifest, when the disease process is easier to reverse.
Achieve supreme health and a balanced state of mind using a natural way, that allows the body’s natural healing ability to occur, through a complete system of food, therapies, medicines, cleanses and stress reduction and exercise recommendations.
The World Health Organisation lists Ayurveda as “The most ancient, scientific, holistic and complete system of healthcare in the world.”
