I educate and support individuals and groups in applying the tools of Ayurvedic Medicine to their lives. Ayurveda, the holistic medicine of India and the sister science of yoga and provides perspectives on approaching diet, lifestyle, yoga, and healing that embrace your unique body and mind, and address the context and root cause of imbalances. Ayurveda is the most comprehensive and ancient systems of health care that exist today. The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word and when broken down translates as Ayus meaning Life or Living and Veda meaning Science or Knowledge. Therefore, we can say that Ayurveda is the science of living.
One of Ayurveda’s core principles is knowing who you are. Ayurveda believes that within each and every one of us lies the capacity to live happy, balanced lives free of disease. Ayurveda allows you to connect to yourself. This science allows you to be able to know and manage yourself, what your body type is and the lifestyle choices that you make, how you process your emotions, how you interact with nature while maintaining balance effortlessly, when you practice Ayurveda you are creating qualities of “self-referral.” Having all this awareness entails constantly doing things to benefit your own mind, body and soul. It is truly the science of life, the science of experience.
The crux of Ayurveda is prevention. Not a one-size fits all treatment. In fact, Ayurveda is very individualized. As an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach, I counsel a wide array of people, many of whom reach out to me once they’ve exhausted traditional Western medicine’s approach to treating certain chronic conditions, or those who know something is wrong even though their doctors tell them everything is “fine” or those following a vague diagnosis. Some of the people I meet, have the fortune of being without disease and just wanting to reduce vulnerabilities to disease due to exposure or predispositions or there are others who jus want to feel better. No matter the reason. Ayurveda encompasses the whole person, offering total healing – physical, psychological, and spiritual.
