This is one of our favourite Ayurvedic quotes
“Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam aturasya vikara prashamanam”
This Sanskrit quote says that the aim of Ayurveda is to prolong life, promote perfect health and maintain good health in an already healthy individual. This is best done when we are feeling well, not only when we feel out of balance. Ayurvedic principles should be applied when we feel healthy (swastha) with the focus to feel even better.
The second aim is to completely understand and eradicate the disease (aturasya vikara).
These are the two branches as indicated in the classical texts:
1. Preventative – following a daily routine (Dinacharya), seasonal regime (Rtucharya), Sadvritta (right actions, thoughts) and Yoga.
2. Curative – food (ahara), vihara (lifestyle) and aushadham (ayurvedic medicines).
An Ayurvedic consultation is beneficial for all, even if you feel balanced!
