What is does it mean to have vibrant health, live a meaningful life, and have a deep sense of peace, contentment, and purpose? Ayurveda means knowledge of life, and it originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. It is the oldest continuously practiced health care system in the world. The Ayurvedic (Sanskrit) term for health is “Svastha,” which literally translates to “established in the self.”

Today, we are applauded for being over-worked. We are taught that stress, anxiety, and exhaustion mean a job well done. Chronic diseases are viewed as a normal part of life and aging rather than a consequence. However, this could not be further from the truth. Imbalances feed disease and illnesses. Thus, true health is not based on being physically disease-free. Rather, it is based on the interaction of the body, mind, spirit, and senses infused with a lifelong sense of self or purpose, balanced life, and a vibrant spiritual connection.

Ayurveda embraces each person as an individual. Every person is born with a constitution for peak optimal health and wellness. Our lifestyles dictate whether we keep the balance or allow it to go awry, inevitably creating disease and illness. Ayurveda educates and inspires us to be well and to do well.

We will discuss the basics of Ayurveda:

  • The five elements and how they play apart in our optimal health and wellness
  • The twenty qualities (gunas) (AKA the ten pairs of opposites) and how they play a part in the doshas
  • The three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha (balance vs. imbalance)
  • Doshas in: nature, climate, season, time of day and stage of life
  • Ayurveda educates and inspires us to be well and to do well. Kamie is here to support you on your journey, find a balanced life, and rediscover your authentic self.

Ayurveda embraces each person as an individual. Every person is born with a blueprint (constitution) for optimal health and wellness. It is our lifestyles that either keep the balance or allow it to fall out of balance, creating illness and disease. Your personal constitution defines who you are. No two constitutions are exactly alike.

Imbalances feed disease and illnesses, thus true health is not based on being physically disease free. Rather, it is based on the interaction of the body, mind, spirit, and senses, infused with a lifelong sense of self or purpose, balanced life, and a vibrant spiritual connection.

Ayurveda reaches far beyond the area of physical health, healing, and the prevention of disease, but can help each of us claim our authentic selves and align with our true nature. Through Ayurveda, we create awareness of body, mind, and spirit to develop our strengths, refine our needs, surface our challenges, redirect harmful tendencies, and offer genuine support wherever it is needed so that we can find balance in stressful times.

What is does it mean to have vibrant health, live life with meaning, and have a deep sense of peace, contentment, and purpose?

Ayurveda means knowledge of life, and it originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. It is the oldest continuously practiced health care system in the world, coming from an understanding of nature’s natural rhythms and laws and working with the imbalances that show up as signs of disease in the mind and body.

Today, we are applauded for being over-worked, stressed, and exhausted. We are taught that stress, anxiety, and chronic disease are a normal part of life and aging. However, this could not be further from the truth. Ayurveda teaches us that there is always a choice, providing us with effective and intuitive tools that can be used to evaluate the degree of disharmony, whether slight or severe, to determine its cause and give us the practices to reclaim optimal health.
