Finding balance through a natural, holistic, personalized approach to healing.
Health according to Ayurveda is defined as having a balance of the 3 dosas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) the substances present in the body to maintain life, a well-balanced digestive system, well maintained bodily tissues, a well functioning excretory system, an awakened consciousness which has the ability to control the mind and satisfy the senses. All these are essential in maintaining stability in the mind, body, and spirit so that one can be truly healthy.

It’s all about balance…
Finding the imbalanced Dosha
According to Ayurveda, we are made up of substances that sustain and maintain life. These substances are the three doshas vata, pitta, and kapha.
Doshas are highly volatile, it can increase or decrease and react with each other inside the body. These changes together with other factors can present the signs and symptoms of an imbalance.
Satisfaction of the six tastes
The Ayurvedic approach with nutrition puts emphasis on the satisfaction of the six taste. Sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent. In today’s modern living, we are constantly introduced to the first three taste of sweet, sour and salty; the culprit of constant cravings and food addiction. In order to balance our palate and get satisfaction from the food we eat it is vital to include all the six taste in our diet.
Balancing the Agni
Balancing the agni or digestive fire is the starting focus of Ayurvedic treatments. Ayurveda believes that for the body to heal, it must have a healthy gut. If the body can digest properly, nourishing each tissue, and is effectively eliminating waste products then it can heal by its strengthened immunity.
Maintaining the Dhatu
Dhatu or bodily tissues must be well maintained, any imbalance or obstruction may show simple signs and symptoms that if left untreated could progress into a more serious problem.
A good elimination is paramount to health. When digestion is compromised and channels are blocked ama or toxins can easily build up. Ama pachana is the process of eliminating toxins out of the body.
