Gaia— a member-supported media network of truth seekers:
Ayurvedic medicine is based upon the principle of interconnection -- between self, nature, and universal consciousness. Learn how Ayurveda, the science of life, can empower you to align with the elements of nature, your own true essence, and the tapestry of consciousness that unites us all. While ayurveda is over 5000 years old, its principles still have importance in modern science and society. Where western medicine largely overlooks preventive methods and the roots of chronic disease, these concepts are at the forefront of ayurvedic medicine. In this episode, we also explore how ayurveda can be understood in terms of the five elements and the human experience in terms of the five koshas, or layers of self. Through studying ayurveda, we can come into a much deeper relationship with ourselves and the natural world around us. About Gaia: Gaia offers the largest resource of consciousness expanding videos.
