Learn to see ‘Ayurvedically’

When you read something about Ayurveda, you will soon read about constitution types. Often there are entertaining tests in magazines or books that give an indication of what type you would be. Fortunately, you are more complex than a list of characteristics in a short test. Usually the outcome of such a test only says something about the situation at that moment and does not provide fully substantiated and personal advice for your unique situation.

Of course, such a test is especially fun and certainly nice to get inspired! It may offer you a first insight or interest in how your metabolism reacts, your strengths and your weaknesses. And that could just be a step on your way to balance.

Within Ayurveda, several fields can be distinguished with literature, current research and specialisations. Ayurveda was officially recognised as a medicine by the WHO (World Health Organisation) in 1977, with the comment that it often offers solutions where Western medicine stops. Anyone who studies Ayurveda soon discovers that one life may not be enough to learn everything there is to learn and that a person cannot be pigeonholed or categorised: you are unique. And that requires a person-oriented approach.

A doctor or therapist can guide you in this and with a little knowledge about Ayurveda you can also do many small things that promote the balance in your system. A good doctor or therapist does not only deal with treatment, but just as much with education. So that not only solves the problem you came for, but perhaps even more importantly: to prevent problems in the future.

By learning to see ‘Ayurvedically’ you can make choices that are appropriate and supportive for you. For the short and the long term. This not only offers a personal approach, but also space: Space for you.

Learning to see ‘Ayurvedically’ goes beyond restrictive schedules and to-do lists. Beyond standardised lists of recommended or prohibited foods, supplements or lifestyle and exercise advice. With some knowledge of Ayurvedic principles you can functionally look at processes, understand them and then intelligently adjust them. So that your body can find or keep balance. Starting with a solid foundation in which you can do a lot yourself: Nutrition and lifestyle play a major role in the prevention of disease and in support to maintain or regain balance.

Looking through an Ayurvedic lens does not only allow for choices that are beneficial to your health, it also offers space for a pleasant and meaningful life.
