It is an art of daily living that has evolved from practical, philosophical and spiritual illumination, rooted in the understanding of Creation. It offers a profound understanding of each person’s unique body, mind, and consciousness, which is the foundation of health and happiness.”

What is Āyurveda?

One of the oldest known and well-established systems of medicine in the world, Āyurveda is ancient and vast. This traditional way of living teaches and empowers us to thrive harmoniously with Nature’s rhythms. Āyurveda views each human as a unique and divine individual, coming from one’s own set of experiences, environments, relationships, and beliefs.

Each living being is comprised of a specific combination of the five universal elements, or states of material existence, making up your bodily, physical constitution (prakriti) with it’s natural state of equilibrium uniquely expressed in each individual. This balance of elemental influences is in a constant dance with the endless flow of experiences, conversations, meals, and lessons presented in each moment of life. Disease, imbalance, and disorder (vikriti) arise within the body and mind when food, experiences, emotions, and sensory input aren’t properly digested and assimilated due to physical, mental and emotional toxins accumulating in the body.

Through practicing Āyurveda in our daily lives we can prevent disease from arising or find our way back to balance when we have strayed from our innate state of well-being. Roots and Nectar Āyurveda is here to assist in guiding you on your path to sustained health through diverse offerings ranging from custom diet, lifestyle and herbal remedies to deeply therapeutic detoxifying programs and rejuvenating healing touch therapies.
