Ayurveda is the traditional medical system of India and uses highly personalized natural interventions to promote health and prevent or slow progression of disease.
Ayurveda originates in 5,000-year-old Indian Vedic teachings that describe how to live in accord with nature, life and consciousness. Its foundational texts developed over the next several millennia are still referenced by modern practitioners. Though ancient in origin, the principles of Ayurveda are based on observations of nature and the human body which are timeless and unchanging.
During the 1800’s, British colonialism imposed its own medical system on India and fragmented the teaching and practice of Ayurveda for over 100 years until its revitalization in the 1980s by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Dr. Vasant Lad, and others. There is a growing body of scientific research on Ayurvedic interventions that show a wide range of health benefits, from stress relief and cardiac health to decrease in heavy metal toxicity and a healthier microbiome.
