What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda: knowledge of life
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India, linked to yoga.
Tibetan medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine both have their roots in Ayurveda. Ayurveda offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full potential.
The system of Ayurveda works off the Five Elements (Air, Ether, Fire, Water and Earth) that show up in different combinations in each individual.
In Sanskrit, the constitutions, made up of the elements, are called Doshas. There are three main doshas: Vata (Air and Ether), Pitta (Fire and Water), and Kapha (Earth and Water).
Seasons, foods, and bodies contain the qualities of the elements in varying amounts. They can add to our health or, in excess, promote internal disharmony and dis-ease.

Through working with Hannah, you will gain more knowledge about yourself and what is healthy for you.
Remember, "one person's medicine can be another person's poison," so knowing where your doshas are out of balance can be of great benefit to knowing your personal blueprint for health.
This system ultimately empowers you with the knowledge to make the best decisions for your own well-being.
Through providing individualized guidelines on the ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior, lifestyle, and herbal remedies, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.
By working with Hannah and applying the wisdom of Ayurveda, you will make the changes and deepen your self-understanding to bring yourself into the rhythm where dis-ease disappears.
