Experience total health, wellness, and healing with the time-honored and ancient concept of Ayurveda.
You are what you eat, right? We've all heard this saying. But what does Ayurveda have to do with eating? Everything! Ayurveda is a complete holistic healing system that mainly focuses on offering a healthy lifestyle. Ayurveda believes in the infamous saying, 'Prevention is better than cure.' However, one can also use this system to heal or cure their existing ailments.
Experts say that Ayurveda was found 5,000 years ago in Ancient India and then spread across different parts of the world, especially Asia. Ayurveda is a combination of two words, Ayur=Life and Veda=Science of knowledge.
Ayurveda is literally the science of life!
I did not grow up in India, but I spent lots of time there with my family. Currently, I am a practicing dentist by trade. The health of someone's teeth and gums can tell so much about a person's lifestyle, health choices, and diet. When I was a teenager, I ate fast food (like many teens do), drank soda, and didn't get enough sleep or water. I was a typical, modern teenager. When my health began to fail, I turned to conventional medicine to help, to no avail.
My dear, sweet grandmother introduced me to the idea of Ayurvedic eating, and I have not turned back since! My ailments began to heal, and my pain began to subside once I turned away from Big Macs and chose carrot pudding instead. I believe entirely - personally and professionally - that your diet is the number one reason for any health-related malady.
Food is medicine!
