Ayurveda is the ancient system of Indian medicine what’s so incredible about Ayurveda is that is uniquely tailored to each person’s psycho physiological Constitution this is not a one-size-fits-all approach to your health using the principles of Ayurveda you can make choices that are going to empower you to change your life and improve your well-being.
While Ayurveda is of 5,000 year old discipline out of India it could not be more timely and more relevant in Western culture than it is today over the last 100 years we have really been leaning on Western medicine as a preventative as a way to manage our symptoms and that simply is not working as we all know there are climbing rates of heart disease obesity and other chronic preventable illnesses there are do the lifestyle choices when it comes to emergency medicine and life or death scenarios.
Western medicine is absolutely an incredible approach but when it comes to what you choose on a daily basis on the way that you take care of yourself Western medicine is not working so we need to move away from this mentality of jumping in and getting a prescription or popping a pill to manage our symptoms symptoms are our body’s way of gently telling us that something is not working something is imbalanced Ayurveda gets to the root of the imbalance and does not address just the symptom which results in someone actually having a whole health overhaul so I highly implore you to continue to learn more about your unique Constitution and know that this method of Health Care and of well-being it’s tailored to the individual it is not a one-size-fits-all approach and that is why it is so impact starting to learn about your Constitution is not only going to enable and empower you to take charge of your individual health but also the health of close members of your family your friends and even the health of your community.
