Ayurveda believes that "You are what you eat". In Ayurveda there are 5 elements- space, water, earth,air and fire and they combine into 3 energies/doshas- Vata (air+space), Pitta (fire+water), Kapha (earth+water). These doshas are responsible for a huge variety of things including the choices of food. We all have all 3 doshas but 1 of them is usually primary. When the balance is disturbed by stress, improper diet or other factors, disease will follow. Right diet for your dosha is the key. Ayurveda looks at your dosha and the imbalance to find the root cause of your disease.
As well as the diet, lifestyle plays a huge part in our wellness. We are all unique so why should our training plan look the same? Sometimes we can get caught up in physical exercise or a job that is not suitable for us and that might be the cause for our dis-ease. Hard exercise regime might not be suitable for some or little exercise might not be enough for others. Together with exercise, your interests/hobbies and work life also affects your general health.
In Ayurveda it is very important to know where your remedies are coming from and how pure are they. The outcome of the treatment depends greatly on the quality of it. We use the finest Ayurvedic preparations from Sri Lanka which are carefully selected by The Ayurvedic Clinic UK using the traditional Ayurvedic formulations. All products are natural remedies like oils, creams, powders, tablets etc. They are pure and beyond organic.
