It is said that Ayurveda is as old as humanity itself. As legend has it, meditating ascetics from the Himalaya region received the Ayurvedic wisdom from heavenly healers. The oldest written records date back to over 3,500 years before Christ, making Ayurveda the oldest health system in the world. No wonder Ayurveda is called the “Mother of Medicine”.
The expressions “Ayus” (life) and “Veda” (knowledge, wisdom) stem from the ancient Indian Sanskrit language. “Ayurveda” therefore can be translated in the sense of “The wisdom of a long and healthy life”. For more than 5,000 years regeneration and prevention have been the foundation of Ayurveda. In these holistic teachings, health is understood to be a dynamic balance of powers, which penetrate all levels of life. The individual balance of power, one’s constitution, is as unique as their face, physical build and personality.
Ayurveda is a comprehensive life philosophy and a holistic form of medicine, which help us to enjoy a healthy and satisfying life with more vitality. It draws on the knowledge and past experience, gained over thousands of years, to
• accomplish physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
• tune an individual´s diet according to their personal needs.
• achieve a happy and healthy lifestyle.
