What is Ayueveda? What is a Dosha? How should I eat to be healthful according to my dosha? What daily routines will help to reduce stress and balance life? Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is the oldest continually practiced healthcare system in the world. Ayurveda means science or knowledge of life; it is from an understanding of nature’s natural rhythms and laws, and works to combat imbalances that show up as signs of disease in the mind and body. It provides guidelines on daily and seasonal routines, knowledge of how to properly use the five senses, diet and nutrition, and behaviors. It follows the values of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha to recognize imbalances in our bodies.
