‘Living the Ayurvedic Way’ happens to be the name of one of our most popular tours…
It’s also been a way of life for millions of people for more than 5000 years.
You may have heard about Ayurvedic medicine and principals, especially now, as it continues to grow in popularity in Australia and other western countries. What you are probably wondering though, is how it works…
An ancient healing practice that has been described as ‘the ultimate preventive health system’, the word Ayurveda is translated from Sanskrit, meaning ‘the science of life.’ Ayurveda focuses on the holistic nature of healing; its main philosophy is that the mind and body are one and that physical health can be achieved with emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
As such, Ayurvedic medicine uses a whole range of healing techniques to achieve best health and prevent the onset of illness.
From aromatherapy, acupuncture, massage and yoga – to diet, herbal medicine and detoxification; Ayurvedic treatment is non-invasive, nurturing and in-tune with the body.
In fact, Ayurvedic healing is so in harmony with the body, that you are treated according to your specific body type! Let us explain a little further…
It is believed that the five elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether make up everything in the universe, including us. These elements exist within us as our bones, teeth, blood, immunity, oxygen and more.
Depending on your body type, you will have more or less of these elements. Ayurvedic healers use the terms ‘vata’, ‘pitta’ and ‘kapha’ to describe each body type and determine a course of treatment.Vata types (air and ether) are said to have restless, creative minds and thinner bodies; pitta have a sharp, competitive mind and a moderate physique; while kapha are relaxed and patient, with broad frames and long limbs.
Once your body type has been determined, your Ayurvedic therapist can plan your guide to achieving and maintaining good health. Common ailments that can benefit from Ayurvedic therapy include anxiety, stress-related issues, allergies, digestive problems, high-blood pressure and arthritis.
More than anything though, Ayurveda is an inspiring alternative to the hectic way that we often carry out our lives. Its aim is to instruct on the best ways to live so that we can lead happy and sickness-free lives.
Ayurveda favours whole foods over processed ones, a calm mind and an intuitive attitude towards our bodies…
Makes you feel better just reading about it!
The best part though is that we can give you access to a real, traditionally-taught Ayurvedic master.
