Ayurveda Considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science, Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health that is designed to help people live long, healthy, and well balanced lives. The term Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskrit words ayus, meaning life or lifespan, and veda, meaning knowledge. It has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years and has recently become popular in Western cultures. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to prevent and treat illness by maintaining balance in the body, mind, and consciousness through proper drinking, diet, and lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies.
ccording to Ayurvedic beliefs, each person has a distinct pattern of energy — a specific combination of physical, mental, and emotional characteristics.
It is also believed that there are three basic energy types called doshas, present in every person:
1.Vata — energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion
2.Pitta — energy that controls the body’s metabolic systems
3.Kapha — energy that controls growth in the body.

I was in Kerala, couple of years ago… this was an absolute great experience! I know it would be important to make it at least once a year and for 3-4 weeks… But since I’m vegetarian and I do meditation every day, I’m aware to be on the “right way”… Serenity to you :-)claudine
