What is wellness?
Wellness is a term that relates to your overall health. Achieving wellness means that your body is physically in good health, as well as referring to your mental health too. Wellness is about being in touch with your body and making conscious decisions in order to achieve a healthy life. With our busy lives and constant exposure to toxins, achieving wellness is something that a lot of us struggle with, however it is crucial in order to live a high quality of life and is something that should take the utmost importance- our health is everything.
So, how can you achieve good wellness? The team here at Ayurclinic are experts in Ayurvedic Medicine in Melbourne and we know that the best way to achieve overall health is by doing so naturally. We know all about how to improve wellness using ayurvedic techniques and the benefits that this can have for us in day to day life.
Unlike most conventional medicine, Ayurveda differs in that we believe that all health conditions can be cured naturally without the need for conventional medicines or invasive procedures. We look at individuals in their entirety, rather than examining health complaints individually. Ayurveda sees poor overall wellness as a result of imbalances in the body, which means that with a few minor adjustments, optimum health can be easily restored.
The Three Doshas
Ayurveda believes that the human body consists of three primary life forces called the Tridoshas. These comprise of Vata, Pitta and Kapha and it is the imbalance of these which causes a build up of toxins and ultimately leads to negative physical and mental health: often the primary cause of most illnesses.
Ayurveda treatments works to correct this imbalance and restore wellness through a number of ways such as: diet, herbs, massage, meditation, music and panchakarma..
How to achieve good wellness with Ayurveda
With Ayurveda, there is no ‘one treatment for all’. Ayurveda uses natural techniques and remedies to treat health conditions and examines each patient in their entirety. Good wellness means different things to all of us and therefore each and every ayurvedic treatment plan will be different. Having said that, there are some Ayurvedic practises that can always be taken in order to restore overall health and improve quality of life.
Food and wellness
At Ayurclinic Melbourne, we believe that health starts with what you are putting inside of you- with your diet. These days we often consume foods the initially taste good but are actually full of toxins that damage our bodies.. These toxins accumulate in the body and throw it off balance leaving us feeling really sluggish and unhealthy. However don’t worry, with an ayurvedic cleanse and then through a diet of healthy, nutrient filled foods, optimum health can easily be restored.
