What is Ayurveda?

“Ayurveda is 3,000 to 5,000 years old. It is a system of healing that focuses on establishing and maintaining balance of the subtle energies within us. It is a complete medical system, based on restoring harmony within the individual as well as between the individual and nature. The basic principle of Ayurveda is that we are all at , core, perfectly ourselves. We have a natural, basic, healthy balance to our mind, body, and spirit…This is a critical concept in Ayurveda, the practices of which are designed to bring us home, home into our divine selves…One’s energies can become out of balance, particularly when the body is exposed repeatedly to toxic substances and behaviors. This out-of-balance condition reveals itself in digestion, sleep patterns, immune-response systems, and the look of the skin, hair, eyes, and tongue. Bringing these systems back to balance returns us to our true nature.” (p.37)
