Raw Veda combines the following four pillars of knowledge in healing ailments and selecting treatments:
TRADITIONAL AYURVEDA (Atharva Veda)
Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine that has been practised in India for 5000 years. According to Ayurveda, everything in the universe, including the human body, is composed of five elements:
ether, air, fire, water and earth.
We are each born with a unique balance of these elements which make up our constitution and determine our physique, our emotional and mental traits, and our predisposition to certain health problems.
To restore the delicate balance of elements within an individual body, and return a sick person to health, this unique constitution must be taken into account. One person’s treatment must therefore be discriminated from another’s, however similar their symptoms may be.
Ayurveda is far-reaching in its influences and offers a model of the universe that can deepen your understanding of Healing Systems like Naturopathy, Homoeopathy, Herbal Medicine and the Raw Food Diet.
You can then choose the proportion of raw to cooked food which suits you best. You’ll begin to look at food and health more simply and, with a few simple changes to your diet and lifestyle, you’ll find it easier to restore yourself to good health.
With such variety on offer, Raw Veda can meet the needs of a broad range of people, providing simple solutions to the majority of illnesses and offering renewed vitality in an energy-sapping modern world.
Rongoa, traditional Maori medicine, recognises the first teacher as the forest itself, which gives freely of its medicines, and when used rightly, awakens our intuition and understanding of how to heal ourselves. The native bush is rich with medicinal lore known only to a few.
Using the ayurvedic approach, we can determine which bush plants are best suited to our body types and our health problems. By showing respect for Rongoa Maori, as a thing to be treasured and respected, we learn to see the bush in a new light. Our inner intelligence comes alive, we grow in confidence and we take charge of our own health.
A Raw Food Revolution has quietly been growing as a reaction to the complications of the modern world and the need to return to our roots.
The original human diet would have been spring water, a few fruits, roots, berries and the occasional meat, fish or bird. The body would have rested in seasons of scarcity and celebrated at harvest. When ill, we might have said a prayer or mantra to the God of the day or perhaps received a special touch from a local Healer.
The Raw Food Diet is a simple approach to health and well-being that has the added bonus of creating good health and renewed vitality.
