Health Programs Ayerveda
 
The Sanskrit word ‘Ayerveda’. Means the science of life and longevity. Every individual is both a creation of cosmic energies and a unique phenomenon, a unique personality.

It is a holistic system of healing in the truest sense. Our consciousness, mind and body is in constant interaction and relationship with other people and the environment. To create our balance of health ‘Ayerveda’ takes into consideration these different levels of life and their interconnection. It is a science, which involves the balance of mind, body, emotional, and spiritual well-being. ‘Ayerveda’ teaches that we all have a constitution, which is our individual psychobiological makeup. From the moment of our conception we have an individual constitution that is created by the universal energies of space, water, air, fire, and earth. Within the combination of these five elements there are three fundamental energies, or ‘dosha’s’. Earth and air constitute ‘Vata’, which is energy of movement. Fire and water constitute ‘Pitta’, the principle of digestion or metabolism, the transfer of matter into energy. The third ‘dosha’, ‘Kapha’ the energy of structure and lubrication, is made up of water and earth.
