About Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year tested  source of knowledge in India and health system that focuses on all bodily energies being in balance, mind, body and soul.

There are three metabolic principles in Ayurveda termed doshas: 

  1. Vata
  2. Pitta
  3. Kapha

Vata is the ether or air element, Pitta is water and Fire elements and Kapha is earth and water elements. Ayurveda believes a woman has a natural imbalance toward Vata after childbirth. The goal is to bring vata back into balance by providing appropriately prepared foods, warm oil massages and lifestyle adjustments.

In Ayurveda, it is the belief that the first 42 postpartum days impact the next 42 years of a woman’s ability to mother and partner.
