Often grouped under the category of "STRESS" by doctors, Dee chose holistic remedies from the Ayurveda tradition to heal her body. An ancient science of health, Ayurveda is based on the concept that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in the individual's mind and or body. Ayurvedic practices encourage certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, and the environment.

History of Ayurveda

Herbs used in AyurvedaAyurveda is the traditional medicine of India and is often called the healing side of yoga. It is a system of holistic health care that considers the uniqueness of each individual as it helps them to create a state of internal harmony and optimal health. Whereas Western medicine is based upon statistics for what works for the general population, Ayurveda is based upon what is right for the individual.

Although Ayurveda is an ancient science of health and healing, it is as relevant today as when it was first described more than 5,000 years ago. It was developed for the purpose of preventing disease in those who are healthy and curing disease in those who are sick. While times have changed over the past 5,000 years, the fundamental principles of healing have not. The early Ayurvedic physicians described the proper use of our five senses and the importance of proper lifestyle in the healing process. Remarkably, these physicians described the same diseases we suffer from today including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, digestive disease, and much more. They have left us with detailed instructions regarding how to maximize the potential of the body to heal from each of these conditions.

Ayurveda is a complete Health Care science. In modern India, there are Ayurvedic hospitals along with Western hospitals, and Practitioners of Ayurveda are fully licensed physicians. Here in the United States, the practice of Ayurveda is relatively new. Practitioners are not called doctors, but rather Ayurvedic Health Practitioners and Clinical Ayurvedic Specialists. Ayurveda is based on the idea that where there is harmony there is health and where there is disharmony there is disease. Symptoms are the natural expression of the body to being out of harmony. When harmony is restored, damaged tissues and symptoms heal! Ayurvedic programs help create a healthy lifestyle through the five senses, utilizing diet, color, aroma, sound, yoga, massage therapies and much more to restore harmony and balance.

Ayurvedic Health Practitioner

Your Preventative Medicine Specialist

Your Ayurvedic Health Practitioner is your preventative medicine specialist trained to support you to create optimal health and peace of mind. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Most diseases that debilitate humanity are preventable through proper diet and lifestyle. This includes most cardiovascular diseases (heart attacks and strokes) as well as high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus. Almost all diseases improve dramatically when proper lifestyle is followed. This includes cancers, autoimmune disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial cystitis, thyroid disease, nervous system disorders, hormonal imbalances and much more. Stress is the number one cause of disease.

An Ayurvedic lifestyle program is the best way to handle the stresses of life. Your Ayurvedic Health Practitioner will begin by giving you a complete ayurvedic evaluation. This will involve taking a look at your entire health history and then examining your body structures and functions as well as your voice, tongue, and pulse.

This examination will accurately determine your constitution and the doshas that have become out of balance. Based upon these findings, your Ayurvedic Health Practitioner will structure a program to help you to restore balance, support your healing process and prevent disease. Once the program has been structured, it is the role of your Ayurvedic Practitioner to support you to become successful implementing Ayurveda into your life. This is accomplished through regular follow-up visits, the key to successful transformation of your behaviors.
