Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old consciousness-based healing system founded in ancient India.  You may already know an aspect of Ayurveda through its sister science, yoga.  Ayurveda represents life's healing wisdom, while yoga is a spiritual practice of it. The Sanskrit word "Ayurveda," is derived from the words ayus meaning life, and veda meaning wisdom. Ayurveda, the wisdom of life, offers a proven guide for a life of health, happiness, vitality, love and purpose.  From the Ayurvedic perspective, human beings are not viewed as mere thinking physical machines, but rather as fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the energy and information of their environment.  Health is a state of vibrant balance in which all the layers of one’s life are integrated. When our bodies and minds are in balance we can make nourishing choices, experience healing, and achieve the change we seek for a healthy lifestyle.
