You can Benefit from Ayurveda

People may tell you that achieving, let alone maintaining, a healthy life balance is at best an elusive ideal and at worst a complete myth. Ayurveda, however, has been providing the teachings and techniques to achieve and maintain a balanced life since ancient times. Its benefits have been proven over centuries of practice, its methodologies are just as they were thousands of years ago in India, and its practice is just as relevant today.

Because Ayurveda combines many different practices – including yoga, meditation and nutrition – its benefits are far reaching, including:

  • lowering stress and anxiety
  • lowering blood pressure and cholesterol
  • reducing the occurrence of illnesses
  • improving recovery from injuries
  • promoting a nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich diet
  • helping with weight loss and maintenance
  • reducing inflammation

The University of Maryland Medical Center gives a nice overview of the benefits of Ayurveda.

Ayurvedic counseling is beneficial to those who are looking to lead a healthier and more balanced life, as well as individuals who have been diagnosed with an illness and are seeking ways to maximize their treatment and improve their recovery. Ayurvedic counseling is highly individualized for each client and may include: nutrition education including a “pantry rehab,” trip to the grocery store and cooking lessons; meditation and yoga instruction; and education and recommendations on Ayurvedic lifestyle practices. Contact us for more information and to set up a counseling appointment.
