Ayurveda means “the science of life”. It is an ancient wellness system that focuses on the complete person which includes the body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda looks at wellness not as “the absence of disease”, but instead, when all bodily tissues, organs,
systems, and functions are acting together in a way which enables optimal health despite the presence of potential illness causing influences. Ayurveda teaches us that by balancing the various mind-body functions, the natural intelligence of the body will automatically bring itself to wellness.
Ayurveda recognizes that each person has a unique mind-body constitution. Ayurveda identifies an individual’s mind-body constitution, determines where imbalances may exist, and provides education, guidance, and options for helping the individual nourish, stimulate, and balance vital energy to bring about their own improvements in health and wellness. Ayurvedic practices focus on clearing disturbances and balancing metabolic and energetic patterns that support constitutional resilience. It is the individual’s correct implementation of the right Ayurvedic practices that brings about balance and wellness.
Ayurveda is not licensed as a medical discipline or practice in any state or other jurisdiction in the United States. Ayurveda is complimentary to and supportive of traditional western medicine, and as practiced in the United States, does not replace medical diagnosis, treatment, or prescribing.
Even though Ayurvedic physicians practice Ayurvedic medicine in India, they are not licensed to practice medicine in the United States. When we refer to a physician from India as a “doctor”, we acknowledge the physician’s academic attainment, not his or her license to practice medicine in the United States.
AyurPrana is a community that has come together to simplify the path to overall health and wellness. AyurPrana brings time-tested, well-established, mind-body-spirit practices directly to you in your own home. AyurPrana understands that health and wellness is not a one-size-fits-all pill, and it believes in the power of personalized services that promote inner healing and overall well-being. Together, we will revolutionize the way the world looks at health.
AyurPrana provides a variety of on-line services, including:
- Ayurvedic consultations
