Why Ayurveda Is A Reliable System Of Wellness

By Kapiva Editorial

Ayurveda – Sanskrit for ‘life-knowledge’ – is one of the oldest surviving medical systems in the world. This ancient system has stood the test of time. How much time? Nearly 5,000 years. Its journey began in the sixth century, when Buddhist monks traveled outside of India to Tibet, China, Mongolia, Korea and Sri Lanka, carrying this powerful knowledge with them.

Now, it is a global phenomenon. In fact, in 2009, Milan even held the first international congress on Ayurveda.

Ayurvedic wisdom is rooted in a philosophy that life can be defined as a constant flow of energy, and the best way to stay healthy is to maintain a lifestyle that allows for maximum peace and harmony at four levels – atma (soul), mana (mind), indriya (senses) and sharira (body). That’s why Ayurvedic routines are all-encompassing – they improve both mental and physical health. Sounds like a win-win situation, doesn’t it?

The best thing about Ayurveda is that remedies are free from any side effects (as long as you make informed choices). How is that possible? Ayurveda draws from a natural spectrum of 70,000-80,000 plant species, which contain medicinal and aromatic properties. There are no artificial additives in Ayurveda – it relies on the power of nature. So, put your worries aside as you move closer toward a naturally healthy, happier you by adopting Ayurveda!
