Ayurveda Wellness Q & A

What is Ayurveda? 

Ayurveda has a long history. It’s a 5,000-year-old holistic health art that originated in India. The philosophy of the whole-body practice is that health is the natural state when your spirit, mind, and body are connected and balanced. 

Some of Ayurveda’s main principles include:

  • You stay healthy when you stay balanced
  • Lifestyle choices can disrupt balance
  • Being connected to the environment and all things in the universe 
  • Imbalance increases your risk of disease
  • You have options that lead to balance or imbalance

The main focus of Ayurveda is to promote and maintain good health, not overcome disease. 

What are the ayurvedic specialties?

There are eight branches of ayurvedic wellness:

  • Shalya Chikitsa: surgery
  • Bhuta-vidya: mental health and psychology
  • Kaumarbhritya and Bala Chikitsa: pediatrics
  • Prasuti and Stri-Rog: Gynecology and obstetrics
  • Salakya Chikitsa: Ear, nose, throat, and eyes
  • Kaya Chikitsa: internal medicine, digestive balance, metabolic function
  • Rasayana: senior health
  • Agada-tantra: plants, insects, or heavy metal poisoning

Ayurveda is often called the science of life because it is a comprehensive medical system that includes spiritual, physical, philosophical, and ethical components.
