Products for Ayurveda
What is Ayurveda? Focusing on maintaining balance throughout the body, Ayurveda is an ancient approach to health and medicine that originated in India over 3000 years ago. Ayurvedic medicine and practices aim to holistically treat the body, meaning that it is viewed as being connected to our minds, health and the universe. Wellness is promoted through the use of Ayurvedic herbs, treatments and diet considerations as well as exercise and lifestyle practices which promote the achievement of balance between mind, body and spirit.
The Ayurvedic medicine approach sees the body as made up of the five elements of water, air, earth, fire and space. In Ayurveda, there are three 'doshas' or life forces in the human body, with each person having one 'dosha' that is more prominent and dominant than the others, controlling the functions of the body as well as balance and health. The first dosha, kapha, is dominantly water and earth. The second, pitta, is made up of fire and water. The third, vata, is space and air.
Ayurvedic treatment of illnesses and health conditions is undertaken through personalised healing practices which take into consideration all the elements of an individual's lifestyle, and maintaining the three life forces. Ayurveda healing practices include making healthy diet changes, detoxifying the mind and body through elimination of harmful habits, and cultivating calmness though relaxation exercises like yoga and meditation.
The Ayurvedic theory suggests that when an individual's dosha is out of balance, the body is affected physically, mentally and emotionally. Symptoms and effects can include indigestion, stress and bad skin, meaning that Ayurvedic health practices are designed to place the dosha back into balance, bringing back overall health and wellbeing. Ayurveda products formulated with balance in mind can work in conjunction with these practices to reduce negative symptoms of imbalance.
