An Introduction to Ayurveda

We take pause this week with Carina Jones of CiCis Ayurveda to talk about the holistic practice of Ayurveda. 

Ayurveda is the worlds oldest holistic health system, it is the sister science of yoga and both systems were designed to be practiced in harmony together to achieve complete mind-body balance.  Ayurveda is the healing science of the body and yoga is the healing science of the mind.

The health system of Ayurveda is a complete way of life that guides you on how to achieve an optimal state of well-being through lifestyle practices, nutrition suggestions, daily routines, self care rituals and more that are tailored to your unique mind-body type.

The sanskrit word 'Ayurveda' translates to the 'science of life' because in order to achieve health and wellbeing you must have full knowledge of your life.  In the Western health system we often get acknowledged as a singular isolated symptom, where as in Ayurveda it is recognised that every aspect of your being in interconnected, everything from your digestion to your emotions and behaviours.  Each part of us has its own unique intelligence and a physical imbalance can manifest as a mental imbalance and vice versa. 

The mind-body connection is at the cornerstone of Ayurveda, and is a concept that has been misunderstood in the West but as many are seeking natural health alternatives, the ancient healing science is bringing light to this vital connection that has been known for thousands of years.

The holistic practice of Ayurveda guides you on how to live a wholesale, healthy and fulfilling lifestyle to last an entire lifetime.  It teaches you balance, nourishment and joy - not deprivation, numbers, scales and restriction.  Ayurveda will help guide you through building and empowering a sustainable way of life, harmony within yourself, your environment and the universe around you.
