Title : East meet west: Incorporating ayurvedic and western approaches to achieve health


Ayurveda is a 5000 year old science, the science of life. Ayurveda teaches that health is a process, not a state. It is ongoing, not a one-time attempt at wholeness. The process is participatory; the person must take the responsibility for his or her health. The dynamic balance needs to be achieved in all the aspects of this person’s life: physical, biochemical, intellectual, emotional, behavioral, spiritual, familial, social, environmental and universal. Ayurveda simply uses a different terminology to express some of the most advanced ideas of molecular biology and quantum physics. By adding Ayurveda to our practice of traditional western medicine, we are allowing ourselves to be open to the dynamic play between eastern and western medicine. By investing in Ayurveda, Meditation and Mindfulness, we can engage in healing and wholeness on a personal, as well as professional, level. By sharing this with our patients, we can assist them in connecting with their inner healing and self restoration.
