Ayurveda is the science of life. It offers an integrative and holistic perspective on health and well-being. According to Ayurveda, we are born with one or two (sometimes three) dominant Doshas (body types), which are Vata (Air) 💨, Pitta (fire and water) 🔥💧, Kapha (earth and water) 🌳 🌊.
Your dosha(s) reveals a lot about you in terms of your natural attributes and preferences, and is the pathway to maintaining balance in your body/mind/spirit and life. When a Dosha goes out of balance dis-ease can manifest. ⚖️
An Ayurveda counselor determines your natural constitution and your current state of being in order to treat imbalances at their root causes. Choosing foods and lifestyle practices that support your natural body type will enable you to feel balanced and whole. Sometimes cleanses are required to decrease Ama (toxins) in the body, and herbal supplements are often used as well. 🌿
