Health isn’t something that we get; it is something that we already have. The question becomes how do we keep our health?
Ayurveda is considered one of the oldest healing sciences on this earth. It is known as the “Science of Life” or “Practices of Longevity”, and has been the main form of medicine practiced in India for the past 5,000 years.
Studies have shown that practicing Ayurveda reduces visits to the doctor by 57% (http://www.theraj.com/rajresults/research.php) in addition to other health benefits.
Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention of illness and encourages the maintenance of our health through balancing our daily life. The condition of our physical, mental and spiritual health is a result of many factors. We must look at what we put into our body, our physical exercise, our social relationships, the environments that we work and live in and how well we digest all the information and energy that surrounds us all day long.
Today, Canadians spend a large percentage of their total medical expenses on chronic diseases, namely heart disease, obesity, cancer, asthma, low back pain, and arthritis. There are four factors that control 70% of these chronic diseases: physical exercise, food choices and portion sizes, managing stress, and sleep.
The great news is that we have control over these 4 things. This is our opportunity to do our part.
