Welcome to Astanga Ayurveda Center
(Astanga Hridaya uttarsthan ch 40/81)
Getting Swastha with Ayurveda is to know that you are unique..!
Being healthy is “Swastha”. Centered in one’s own Self. Self is described as Sat-Chit-Ananda or Being-Consciousness-Bliss. Ayurveda recognizes health, not as the absence of dis-ease, but as the quality of the life we lead. Do you have a good appetite, good elimination of waste, good sleep, and regular exercise? Just like your appetite, sleep, exercise pattern is not same your treatment or lifestyle regime is not same. As the saying goes “one man’s food is another man’s poison”, what suits one does not necessarily suit another. Hence the need to create a lifestyle that is unique and suited to each individual. Every person is so unique and special and that is why when it comes to health- there is no one "Acetaminophen (Tylenol)" fit for each person's fever condition in Ayurveda. That uniqueness is called your own "prakruti “or your own inborn constitution.
At Astanga Ayurveda we offer uniqueness of authentic Ayurvedic treatment honed over centuries and Specific recommendations to each individual on lifestyle, diet, exercise and yoga, herbal therapy, and even spiritual practices to restore and maintain balance in body and mind. This understanding that we are all unique individuals It is based on health treatises and compendiums compiled by the greats like Charaka, Susruta, Vagabhatta and many other acharyas after them over thousands of years, and has been reinforced with evidence.
