"Health is wealth, happiness is peace of mind..." (Swami Vishnu Devananda)
Ayurveda, meaning 'knowledge of life' is the 5000 year old ancient healing system from India that promotes longevity, balance and happiness. Ayurveda aims to alleviate suffering by treating the root cause of disease according to our unique constitution, known in the ancient language Sanskrit as Prakriti. This is the unique mix of three biophysical forces (doshas): Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which comprise the elements of Ether/Air, Fire/Water and Water/Earth respectively. Less suitable life choices and general life stresses can lead to imbalance in our constitution leaving us vulnerable to those ailments and conditions to which we may be genetically and constitutionally susceptible. Harmonising more closely with the rhythms of nature and rebalancing our constitution through appropriate nutrition, herbs, exercise, relaxation and lifestyle choices together with Ayurvedic therapies, can help to restores health and prevent disease while improving our vitality and happiness.

"Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food. But to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness." Hippocrates, Greek physician (460 BC - 377 BC)
