Today is World Ayurveda day and as much as I don't tend to bother with many of the fad days on the calendar Ayurveda has been a main part of my own healing journey since I was introduced to it whilst travelling in India in 2017 and I think it's great to see the "sister science" of Yoga being recognised worldwide.
In a world filled with various wellness practices, Ayurveda really stands out as this ancient holistic approach to health that has withstood the test of time.
Originating in India over 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda which means science of life is a system that aims to get to the root cause of the issues affecting our physical, mental and emotional health by incorporating nutritional and seasonal guidance, herbalism, yoga, breathwork, mindfulness and meditation to achieve optimal well-being in our mind, body and spirit.
An integral part of Ayurveda’s holistic approach are the 3 main pillars of health which focus on achieving balance and harmony in all aspects of life so we can reach our full potential.
These pillars are food, sleep, and sex (raised eyebrows perhaps...check the infographics below to find our why).
This month I am sharing more about Ayurveda over in my Facebook group The S.H.E Collective.
