The beauty of ayurveda is its focus on preventing disease through daily habits such as using food as medicine and lifestyle choices.
I have always found it amazing that ayurveda has sensible answers to all aspects of life at any age from conception-->old age.
Dive into this vast ocean of ayurvedic science by 1st understanding the elements in nature.
As you look at this artistic creation of the elements (made my me and my sister in mixed media) begin observing how the elements exist in nature: air, space, fire, water and earth? Then observe how they accumulate causing natural imbalances in nature. This helps us understand our internal nature.
