Ayurveda brings elements to life

The Science Of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is one of the oldest and time-tested health systems in the world.  It’s believed to be more than 5000 years old. It originates from India and translates from Sanksrit as "the knowledge of life". Being a sister discipline of Yoga, Ayurveda focuses mainly on keeping our bodies disease-free up to a very old age.


The teachings of Ayurveda are based on five elements - air, fire, water, earth and ether - their qualities and physical representation in the nature and in human bodies. For example, air has cold and dry qualities, whereas water is heavy and wet. These characteristics can manifest in our bodies, for instance through dry skin or water retention. Different constellations of the elements form three primary mind-body types or doshas - vata, pitta and kapha, as well as their further combinations. All dosha types have different intellectual, nutritional and activity requirements to function optimally, which is why understanding your own mind-body type is the key to healthy and fulfilled life.

Ayurveda believes that the ability of our digestive system to process food is the key driver of our health and wellbeing. Have you heard that up to 80% of immunity lies in intestines? In other words, health starts in our gut! Ayurveda describes digestion as fire, which transforms food into different elements that nourish and sustain our bodies. The stronger and more consistently our digestive fire burns, the better we assimilate nutrients and the less toxic waste we produce. However, we are all born with different digestive capacity, and a perfect diet for one person can be harmful for another one. This consideration makes ayurvedic approach so unique. Ayurveda works with each person individually to bring their natural digestive strength to its maximum capacity.  Different foods have different effects on our digestion and the whole body in general. Knowing how certain foods can provoke or remedy certain ailments in your body, which foods are more and less suitable for you, when and how to consume them is the cornerstone of ayurvedic nutrition.

Another special aspect of Ayurveda is its close connection to the nature. Our nature has its own unique wisdom, how keep the world around in perfect balance. There are natural seasons, times of day and night, which alternate and always come back in time. Just like nature, human bodies possess the inner mechanism of keeping themselves in healthy equilibrium.  All we need is to understand the rhythms of nature and live in tune with them. Ayurveda delivers valuable knowledge, how to adjust our nutrition and self-care routine to seasonal and daily changes to stay healthy and feel our best.

Life should not be constant resistance, but rather an effortless flow. Ayurveda's timeless logic and simplicity can help anyone achieve physical wellbeing to go through life with ease and joy.

Seven Golden Rules Of Ayurvedic Nutrition

  • Only eat when you are hungry.

  • Depending on your constitution, it's advised to have 2-3 meals a day.

  • You need 4-6 hours to fully digest food, don't eat between meals. 

  • Eat the biggest and heaviest meal for lunch. Midday sun is the strongest, and so is your digestion. Best time for lunch is at 12 am-1 pm.

  • Have an early, light vegetarian dinner. Best dinner time is around 5-7 pm, 2 hours before going to bed at latest. 

  •  Don't eat anything for at least 12 hours between your dinner and breakfast. Your body needs this time to repair its tissues, cleanse and rejuvenate itself.

  • Don't drink anything to your meals, it dilutes digestive juices and slows down your digestion. On the other hand, drinking a glass of warm water 20-30 minutes before your meals awakens your digestion and helps you eat less. Wait at least an hour after a meal to drink again.
