Ayurveda means “The science of life” or “The knowledge of right living”. Ayurveda perceives a human beings constitution from the 5 elements of nature: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether. Similar to Chinese medicine.
Ayurveda recognizes and treats symptoms of dis-ease by understanding the imbalances in our Doshas (forces of energy): Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Derived from the elements, our Doshas are the three biological energies that govern our physical and mental processes. Vata is associated with the movement of air and ether; Pitta with transformation of fire and water; and Kapha with the grounding energy of the earth yet also the fluidity of water.
We are all born with a percentage of each Dosha, and in perfect balance, but when any of our Doshas slip out of balance, we begin to feel uneasy, and that unease, unless dealt with, will ultimately manifest as dis-ease. When we use Ayurvedic principles to correct our diet & lifestyle balances, with healing herbal protocols and body treatments, we can easily restore balance to our Doshas, and increase our quality of life.

Seva Ayurveda helps you restore health with traditional therapies and diet modifications, and allows you to find lasting relief from issues such as excess weight, skin problems, poor digestion, restlessness, lethargy, and even more serious chronic conditions such as auto-immune disorders, neurological and psychological disorders, and chronic gastrointestinal issues.
As a general preventative and anti-aging method, Seva Ayurveda provides gentle detoxing and cleansing programs, and seasonal preventative practices as well, to treat imbalances before symptoms arise. One always feels remarkably energized and clear after a seasonal Ayurvedic cleanse and treatment protocol.
Today, Ayurveda’s value and potency has never been more relevant. While Western (allopathic) medicine is valuable, and lifesaving, it tends to treat symptoms in an attempt to eradicate them. Ayurveda seeks to discover the root of the disturbance that has given rise to the symptom, understanding that any symptom is a manifestation of a core imbalance.
For example, a Western doctor might treat acid reflux with anti-acids, and when the symptoms subside, the doctor and patient consider the problem solved. However, in Ayurveda, the root of the imbalance is diagnosed, and that imbalance is treated with herbs, diet and a range of therapies, all of which are profound, restorative and healing, in a lasting way. When the fire of an aggravated Pitta is cooled, or the sluggishness of Kapha is stirred and activated, or the overstimulation of Vata is calmed, discomforting symptoms and associated diseases naturally vanish, and, more importantly, so do their underlying causes.
