Ayurveda helps us understand how the elements, space, air, fire, earth and water work in the body. It explains how, when out of balance, the elements (known as ‘doshas’) create ‘dis-ease’. And how, through diet and lifestyle choices, we can return to wellness. Ayurvedic consultations help you recognise your unique body type or constitution. This identifies which ‘dosha’ is out of balance and suggests how to rebalance so as to regain health.
Gut health and is at the heart of Ayurveda as it teaches that all imbalances start in the digestive tract. Many of the food combinations in the Western diet hamper good digestion, especially when combined with a stressful lifestyle. Conditions such as IBS, hyperacidity, GERD and allergies are on the increase. Unlike much of the dietary advice currently available Ayurveda takes your unique constitution and current state of imbalance into account before making dietary recommendations and also looks at other lifestyle factors that may be impacting on health and vitality.
Ayurveda is a transformative practice which encourages us to consider every aspect of how we live. Yet many of its principles are simple to adopt and have a profound affect on health and well-being.
