Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems – and one that has been increasingly recognised in recent decades for its wellness benefits. Ayurveda evolved in the Indian subcontinent and traces its roots back an astonishing 5000 years or more.
It is founded on the belief that balance is the key to good health and longevity. The system combines natural therapies, herbal medicines, and a focus on a balanced and nutritious diet to harmonise the body, mind, and spirit. With a firm focus on prevention and rejuvenation, Ayurveda aims to promote overall well-being and vitality – which somewhat contrasts to the remedial approach of Western medicine.
Ayurvedic treatments encompass massages, detoxification programs, and dietary advice, tailored to individual body types or doshas. Ayurveda emphasises the unique constitution of each person, categorising individuals into three doshas: Vata (air), Pitta (fire), and Kapha (earth). By understanding one’s dosha, practitioners customise therapies to restore equilibrium and enhance holistic health.
