If you think why choose Ayurved? Especially when there are so many other options available in market then we will going to give you few reasons.
1. Ayurveda truly embraces the individual, Ayurveda believes that each person is born with his own innate constitution, which is a combination of various energies and qualities because of this no individual will have the same regimen as another individual
2. Aurveda really fosters self awareness and this is so powerful because you can make your own decisions about what to do based on how you are feeling day to day, moment to moment.
3. Ayurveda focuses on prevention. It addresses the underlying issues that accumulate and result in your feeling unwell. In doing so Ayurveda address root causes instead of the full list of symptoms. Lastly Ayurveda is truly intuitive. It based on nature so if you understand the basic patterns whole thing will become quite common sense to you.
Well most people think so but they have no idea where to get started, now we give you few foundational building blocks to know Ayurveda looks at the world in terms of Qualities, you know these qualities they are really common sense, for instance heavy and light, cold and hot, oily and rough. Then combine to make what we call Doshes or energies. Vata, pita, and Kapha you may heard of thses. Another way to think about these energies in the terms of the elements Vata’s also made up of air and ether, Pitta’s made up of fire and water and Kalpha is made up of water and earth. If you tap into that intuitive side that we spoke about, you will realize that these elements are totally tied to those qualities we talk about earlier.
