What is Ayurveda?
There is misconception in many countries of ayurveda being a cosmetic, food or worst some kind of religious belief, ayurveda is a medicine system which is basically treatment with natural herbs, diet, psychological balancing, detoxification and rejuvenation. Thus it is a medicine system which is intergrated rather than having a person treated by different people it has all the faculty under one.
An ayurvedic doctor is a proper trained physician who has the ability to understand your diagnosis and suggest natural remedies for it rather than a chemical medicine as a quick remedy.
This system understands you as a person, rather than you as a disease
The “Knowledge of life and long lividity” as the world meaning of Ayurveda is the oldest system of treatment which has its origin 5000 year old Indian Vedas. The main origin book being atharaveda.
This holistic and natural healing system was special because it believed first in preventing ill-health in healthy people by primarily living well and secondly curing diseases. In the context it believed to keep the human health and immunity developed by its different ideologies of diet, yoga, meditation, ayurvedic rejuvenation techniques, natural herbal medicines, massage etc so that no diseases ever enters its domain of health. A special emphasis was also given to the emotional aspects of wellbeing which was considered an important aspect of health.
With the advent of western medicine & man’s belief that he could master his health with chemicals, a darkened phase of ayurveda also came. But from the past century its again began to be popular with its successful cure rate in all diseases especially, diseases related with Auto immunity like Cancer, Systemic Lupus Erythromatus (SLE) and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
Basic principle of treatment
The science offers a treatment of by natural and holistic way to problems of not only the human body but also human mind. Spirit and consciousness. Ayurveda always believed in considering human beings a creature of emotions who can get diseases also if their mind is not balanced and thus considers mind and body as of same origin. This is not considered in the western medicine which basically sees human being as a machine with separate system, organs and tissue that separates the mind and body into distinct categories.
Ayurveda this is enticing science which employs a variety of natural means to bring synchronization to physiology including therapies. Diet, herbs spices, minerals, exercise, meditation, mental balance techniques to eliminate toxic substances from the body. Panchakarma therapies, Massage etc.
Thus the science offers an ever promising ‘health’ to each person even to the person who reads fragment of its knowledge in magazines and is as deep as the sea holding mystic secrets of health to its learners.
