What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda, translated as the Science of Life, is a system of medicine that is believed to have been created more than 5000 years ago in India. It is the oldest medical science recognized by the World Health Organization, basing itself not only in curing individuals from their imbalances, but also maintaining them healthy and thus prevent falling ill in the future.

Ayurveda looks for the cause of our ailments, removing it by purifying the body and mind, and replacing it with healthy habits that are satmyic, or compatible, with the person and life in general. The basis of Ayurveda called the three pillars are dietrest and the right use of our energy. It is said that one can sleep well for a lifetime without getting rest. The aim is to live a long life that excels by its quality, in harmony with our environment.

Good health is achieved by staying within the parameters of our natural individual constitution, also called prakruti, our balance between the three doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha. We ensure all our body tissues are of optimum quality, having the correct flow of both nutrients and toxins for their posterior elimination through the channels. 

It is the objective of Ayurveda to keep us in balance on all levels and to correct disruptions where necessary. Ayurvedic treatments and programs are a transformational process on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. A typical Ayurvedic program is designed specifically according to your needs: it is not a passive process, but a project that we work on together as a team.

 Through Ayurveda I will teach you how to take control over your life and your health.

Ayurveda and the three pillars of health


Good health starts with proper digestion, we are what we eat: anything we put in our body becomes part of our tissues, organs and systems. It is not only about what we eat, but also how and when, whether it is according to the season and appropriate time of the day for the body to assimilate both the nutrients and separation of toxins for elimination through stools, sweat, urine and menstruation.


When digestion is not good due to stress, sleep is poor; when sleep is poor, it affects digestion, concentration, productivity and in the end, the simple joy to live. We can believe we sleep well all our lives, to realize we never get rest. Sleep is a rejuvenating process where all the cells in the body are repleted. Ayurveda considers good quality sleep one of the foundations of good health.


Movement increases the flow of life force energy. Our activities should be in harmony with our needs and environment. We were designed to move, but we spend more time sitting in offices than we do standing, so our ailments go from general weakness to stiffness, fatigue and injuries. These are signs there is built-up stress that manifests through physical pain and discomfort.
