Ayurveda, the science of life, is said to be the world’s oldest holistic healing system. Developed thousands of years ago in India, Ayurveda is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on balance of body, mind and spirit—the keys to helping people live long, happy, healthy lives. We all have a unique constitution, and understanding this can better inform us as to what food and lifestyle choices we make everyday. Once we are able to achieve balance and heal ourselves, we’re ultimately living up to our full potential.
