8 Truths from Ayurveda That We Turn to Day after Day

If you find yourself curious about Ayurveda or simply in search of some grounded truth to guide you, these principles from the ancient science can offer a north star. 


Ayurveda is simple. And it is intuitive. Sure, when you lean deeply into the layered science you’ll discover endless facets, which is one of the reasons why it’s so incredible. But we leave navigating the endless nuances to trusted Ayurvedic practitioners and doctors when the our needs call. The day-to-day honoring of an Ayurvedic practice can be incredibly easy to follow—and very flexible for modern life.


How you begin your day impacts how you live the rest of your day. A healthy, consistent morning routine is essential for a setting the tone for a healthy day.


Ayurveda is accessible and available to all. There is no price on it, no exclusive entryway. The Vedic texts imparted this wisdom for everyone to imbibe and prosper from no matter their ethnicity, religion, race, gender, or beliefs.


Ayurveda views each of us as individual universes, intrinsically linked with the greater universe around us. Our individual existence "is indivisible from the total cosmic manifestation," writes Dr. Vasant Lad.


Self touch is one of the most powerful ways we can care for ourselves. Daily Abhyanga massage allows us to connect with our bodies, our minds, and our emotions.


Have your heard the myth that Ayurveda equals veganism? Us too. You can still eat meat, fish, and poultry on an Ayurvedic diet. Just be sure to opt for sustainably raised, organic, and grass-fed animal protein whenever possible.


We are changing, evolving, growing beings—always. Every minute we’re adapting to our environment and experiencing various emotions. We must honor that change by checking in with ourselves, eating seasonally, and expressing how we feel.  


Ayurveda is fun. We strongly feel there is no other way to connect more deeply and understand ourselves more profoundly than by accepting the generous guidance of this 5000-year-old science.
