WHAT IS AYURVEDA
Ayurveda is an individualized ancient holistic health care system which translates to mean, “the science of life.” It works towards achieving and maintaining balance in the body, mind and spirit by way of living and everyday functioning. The most essential understanding of Ayurveda is the theory and practice of the five universal elements, which make up the 3 doshas. The five universal elements are used to understand each individual uniquely so that choices can be made in the way of living in order to sustain internal harmony - across physical, physiological and psychological levels.
The presence of each dosha change throughout the year, and even throughout each day. The time of greatest change however, is during pregnancy.
