Āyurveda is a Sanskrit word which translates to ‘science of life’ or ‘science of living’. It is a complete medical system, originating thousands of years ago in India.
Āyurveda explains how to live well and how to heal disease. Its healing practices allow you to experience a full, complete life, to the best of your abilities, free from discomfort and disease.
According to Āyurveda, the pursuit of optimal health is central to life and living well. Optimal health allows you to fulfill your goals in life, maintain responsibilities, and perform productive work. It gives you the ability to earn a living, enjoy life, and grow as an individual.
Through disease prevention and disease management, Āyurveda helps you attain optimal health.
Traditional Āyurvedic Medicine is a complete medical system. It uses natural methods such as dietary adjustments, lifestyle modifications, body therapies, and Pañchakarma to establish and maintain optimal health.
Āyurveda explains what is healthy and unhealthy for a given person. It provides methods for measuring all of the factors that influence health. For instance, when you are healthy, Āyurvedic medicine can be applied preventatively to protect and maintain your health.
Conversely, when you are sick or unwell, Āyurvedic medicine can alleviate discomfort and symptoms of disease. Additionally, it may reverse some of the physiological processes that underlie a variety of different chronic diseases.
This medical system was established thousands of years ago in the area of modern-day India. It is considered the longest continuously practiced medical system known.
Traditional Āyurvedic Medicine is personalized to each patient. At MD Ayurveda, you will meet with both a Board-Certified medical physician and an experienced Āyurvedic specialist or Vaidya. Together, they will help you understand your baseline state of health. That baseline relates to your current state of health. Your baseline state of health is sometimes referred to as your constitution. In Sanskrit, it is called your “prakruti”. This constitution helps determine the course of treatment needed to restore balance and optimize your health.
Traditional Āyurvedic Medicine includes diet and lifestyle adjustments, judicious use of Āyurvedic formulations, and periodic Pañchakarma programs. These programs and services help to unroot and remove impurities that accumulate in the body over time.
