What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a medical science.  It has been described as the oldest medical system in the world and originated in India thousands of years ago.  Like any medical system, it has a very clear and well thought way of understanding the body, both physiologically as well as psychologically.  Ayurveda is a holistic medical science.  This means that Ayurveda does not believe that only one causative factor precipitates a disease or troubling condition for someone.  It understands that one day, we don’t just wake up with a disease or condition because of something we did the day before.  According to Ayurveda, an environment is created in the body that makes it more susceptible to annoying disturbances, complications or diseases.  If one has a strong constitution and strong immunity, the manifestation of diseases can be prevented or is minimal.  If one does not have a strong constitution, then, they are not able to as easily fight off diseases or keep them at bay.  This is why two people exposed to the same thing, eat the same foods or do the same things do not develop the same illness.

Ayurveda and Pregnancy

An Ayurvedic consultation focuses on understanding both the long term and current environment in the body.  It makes connections between all the events and circumstances in your life and your current state of health.  It can also have a good idea of what you can be susceptible to based on that environment.  During pregnancy, it provides an insight into the current makeup of your body and how you can support yourself and your growing baby.
