Ayurveda is a traditional Indian mind-body health practice. LIterally translated to “the science of life,” Ayurveda is system that’s oriented around maintaining optimal wellness, as opposed to simply treating dis-ease. All Ayurvedic practices are oriented around two concepts: The mind and body are deeply connected, and that the mind has the capability to heal and transform the body.
When you work with an Ayurvedic practitioner, you’ll examine more than just your diet—your practitioner will look at every aspect of your life, and see how those variables affect your wellbeing. Then, they’ll give you diet guidelines, self-care tips, a hygiene regimen, or even a meditation practice to help you come back into alignment.
