Ayurveda, the science of life or longevity, is the holistic alternative science from India. of five thousand years old. It is believed to be the oldest healing science in existence and the foundation of all others. Buddhism, Taoism, Tibetan, and other cultural medicines have many similar parallels to Ayurveda. However, the secret of Ayurveda’s individualized healing method has been preserved in India up to present time.

Ayurveda evolved in the meditative minds of seers of truth, the rishis. This tradition was transmitted orally from teacher to disciple and later becoming Sanskrit poetry. Much of this has been lost over time but still a rich body of knowledge survives.

According to the rishis, everything originates in Cosmic Consciousness, an energy manifested into five basic elements: Ether (space), Air, Fire, Water, and Earth; the foundation of Ayurvedic science. In the beginning, the world existed in an unmanifested state of consciousness where the subtle vibration of the cosmic soundless sound aum manifested. From that vibration appears first the Ether element, which subtle movements created the Air, or Ether in action, and produced friction, thus, generating heat. The Fire element was manifested through these particles of heat-energy combined with intensive light. Through the heat of fire Ether also dissolved and liquefied forming Water, and then solidified into the Earth element.

At the heart of Ayurveda is its concept of the three doshas, or the three different basic types of human constitutions. From ether and air comes vata; from fire and an aspect of water comes pitta, and from water and earth comes kapha. By the elements and doshas, we determine the basic nature of different individuals and we established a line of treatment unique to their needs.

Ayurveda, a science of self-healing, encompasses diet and nutrition, life-style, yoga, meditation, rest and relaxation, and medicinal herbs, along with cleansing and rejuvenation programs for healing body, mind, and spirit. Numerous additional therapies such as Laya yoga (sound), colour and aromatherapy, and gem-therapy may also be employed.
