Ayurveda

Image of AyurvedaCome back to nature – is appropriate advice for the modern man and woman. Apart from nature, survival of mankind will become practical impossible within a short future. So in every realm of life such a retreat is patent as to move more towards nature. 

In ancient India every branch of science was developed abiding nature’s rule. So ancient Indian science & knowledge are extremely befitting for this age.Ayurveda is the ancient Indian health science developed through centuries long research works of sages, who were eminent scholars. As the term Ayurveda denotes to the knowledge of life it’s not only a system to cure disease but the regimen teaching us ways to achieve perfect health from diseased to abnormal conditions and guidelines to lead a life, both physical and mental, to attain the bliss of real life.

According to ayurveda human body is composed of three fundamental elements called Doshas – which represent the physicochemical and physiological activities of the body,’Dhatus’ which denotes the material entering in to the formation of a basic structure of the body cell, thereby performing some basic actions and Malas the substance which are partly used in the body and partly excreted in yet another from after serving their physiological activities. To attain perfect health we have to maintain the original, natural balance of these. Though Doshas, Dhatus and Malas are equally important, Doshas have added dominance; because human body and everything in it are influenced by Doshas and maintenance of their balance will correct the defects of the other.

Doshas are three – vata,pitta and kapha and they may not be equal and same in all. According to the dominance of each dosha every man is categorized to different types.

Treatments of making you healthy

Image of Ayurvedic TreatmentThe treatments in ayurveda are classified mainly into two Samana and Sodhana.Samana is the pacifying way of treatment and sodhana roots out the disease from the body. Oral therapy and easier means of treatment are prescribed under Samana treatment. But Sodhana treatment is extensive, time consuming procedures to change a diseased man to the original healthy man. If done with special precaustions, regular checkups and extra care this type of ‘Sodhana’ treatments can work wonders and this is what happened in India, especially in Kerala, which attracts a lot of foreigners from all over the world to this small state.

Medicine

You are what you eat – according to ayurvedic principle. So much significance is given to the food habits and life style. Natural herbs are widely used as medicines. In fundamental principles of Ayurveda 5 bais elements are very important. The universe and anything in the universe is believed to be made of these 5 elements – air, water, earth, fire and space.

Since natural herbs being the main ingredients of the medicines, side effects or ill effects are negligible. So it s more or less safe to use ayurvedic drugs in any condition.

Panchakarma and Kerala Treatments

Image of Ayurvedic TreatmentPanchakarma ,the famous Ayurvedic ‘detox’ programme.Panchakarma is a term most mistaken among European people. It is really 5 main treatments, by which vitiated doshas are expelled from the body. They include Vamana (induced vomiting),Virechanam (Purgation),Asthapanam (enema with decoction),anuvasanam (enema with oil) and Nasyam (Nasal application of oil).

While the beauty and rejuvenation packages are soothing and de stressing, Panchakarma is grassroots Ayurveda.But you can’t just waltz in – be prepared to expend time, dedication and patience to see it through.
