What is Ayurveda?

The word Ayurveda comes from two Sanskrit words: "Ayur" which means longevity and life, and "Veda" which means the knowledge of science. It is “the science of life.” A measured, tested, and deeply impactful science which teaches everyone to live a life with a natural and true balance. Ayurveda originates from India 5,000 years ago and has recently become a common practice in the Western world...

Over time, it grew into a total health care system. Even though modern medicine has tried to disregard this science, the failure of modern medicine to remedy illnesses without side effects has brought Ayurveda back into the forefront.

Ayurveda takes a holistic approach that focuses on helping you live a well-balanced, healthy, long life. It centers on restoring and maintaining health by attaining balance in the body, mind, and consciousness through herbal remedies, cleansing practices, diet, and lifestyle.

Ayurvedic medicine is a way of living adopted to protect your most precious possession, your life. It is a time-tested science that is of great use in this modern world because of it's individualized approach to well being. Using elements of nature as a guide, we can identify current or potential imbalances then use this information to develop a unique plan for your healing journey.

Through right relationship of body with mind and spirit, Ayurveda will help balance, rejuvenate, and empower your immunity to prevent disease from developing. Discover Ayurveda to enjoy everything that makes life worth living.  

As Your Denver Ayurveda Practitioner

Consistent with the traditions of Ayurveda while understanding the struggles of modern life, as your Ayurvedic medicine practitioner in Colorado, I create individual programs for you according to your unique constitution and any imbalances that you might be experiencing.

Recommendations can be taken from any facet of Ayurveda, including Ayurvedic Cooking (diet), Ayurvedic Herbs, dinacharya/ritucharya (daily and seasonal routines), deep relaxation, panchakarma/shatkarma (cleansing practices), and pranayama (breathing practices, and meditation).

The healing modalities that I offer to teach all share in common the distinguishing of every individual as unique, and viewing the whole (mind, body, and spirit) of every individual.

Every modality also uses holistic methods that work with and take advantage of the body's natural healing capabilities. As a result, these methods all aim at truly restoring health and not just alleviating symptoms. Ayurveda signifies science of life, having a real understanding of life, seeing life in its wholeness.  Not just limited to one culture or country, Ayurveda is universal. Human life everywhere can benefit with Ayurveda as it seeks to offer alternative medical help with a universal perspective. 

I welcome you to take advantage of Ayurveda and help yourself to an enriched physical, spiritual, and emotional mentality. Due to our worldwide economy, we have access to the best organic, fair-trade, and sustainably harvested herbs from around the globe, using them to assist you with your Ayurvedic Treatment. Based on Ayurveda, good health isn’t just the absence of disease. It connotes pleasant emotions, comfortable digestion, effective elimination, endurance in the body, and living a productive life.

My Objective…

As your holistic medicine practitioner in Denver, I aim to help you get healthy, stay healthy and live a meaningful life on your terms. Some people come to Ayurveda to enrich their life without concentrating on a specific problem and some people find Ayurveda in order to reverse a journey of suffering. I focus on your unique constitution and lifestyle situations to best address your concerns. If you take 20 people who all have similar symptoms to a health issue they are dealing with, each person will have their own constitution and khavaigunya (weak spot). Therefore the origin of the problem varies from person to person so the correct steps to wellness are different for everyone.

Ayurveda concentrates on removing toxins, increasing the harmony and integrity of the tissues, creating contentment within every cell, and balancing the whole system. All this is achieved by being more in tune with nature. Knowing the unique combination of elements we are made of (Prakruti) and the specific imbalances we are experiencing (Vikruti) we can realign ourselves with the rhythm of nature and find peace.
