Ayurveda

You are capable of taking charge of your own life and healing!  As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, I will not only give you specific recommendations, but will help you understand the Ayurvedic system while encouraging and guiding you through the process of change in a manageable step by step process.  Through learning about Ayurveda, you will learn more about yourself and how to make healthy choices that are best for your individual needs. 

​The word Ayurveda is Sanskrit for "Knowledge of Life."  It is derived from ancient Indian texts that are over 5000 years old, Ayurveda is regarded as the oldest existing healing system in the world.  Ayurveda was heavily suppressed during the British occupancy of India, but it is experiencing a major resurgence in both India and throughout the world.

Relaxation is a learned skill.  It is used in the Ayurveda system and its  benefits have been well researched.  It is the antidote to stress and is vital to our health and well-being.

Ayurveda is an all natural and holistic healing system.  It uses the healing tools of Yoga/movement practices, meditation/relaxation, lifestyle regimen, self-care techniques, herbal support and five sense therapies, which include color therapy, aromatherapy, sound therapy and diet.    ​​​

An Ayurvedic lifestyle will assist in both the healing process and in disease prevention, but that doesn't mean an Ayurveda Practitioner should replace your licensed health care provider.  Western medicine and Ayurveda can be used together as complimentary healing modalities.

Ayurveda is not a "band-aid" solution.  It gets to the root cause of imbalances and requires an in depth examination of one's self and the committed discipline to create new life changing habits and routines.   

Currently the  National Ayurvedic Medical Association  (NAMA) is the leading organization promoting and setting standards for Ayurveda in the United States.  Modern Ayurveda is based both on traditional practices and current research.  The  International Journal of Ayurveda  offers numerous current scientific journals on the Ayurvedic system.  As with all things Ayurveda will hopefully continue to grow and expand based upon both scientific and evidence-based findings. As an Ayurvedic Practitioner I consider continuing education, professional development and staying current with today's research a professional responsibility.
