What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is the science of life. A complete natural health care system, Ayurveda is a beautifully simple practice dating back 5,000 years. Ayurveda works with the principle of balance and imbalance in the expression of the three doshas (mind-body qualities) and seeks to restore harmony through regular use of nutritional care, herbal remedies, meditation and Ayurvedic treatments. By recognizing the natural and unique composition of each person, Ayurveda restores vitality in order to help us realize our full potential.
