Ancient wisdom for health
Ayurveda is the Indian school of medicine that developed during the Vedic period and which evolved over time to become one of the effective alternate therapies. The medical wisdom of Ayurveda is considered to be rendered to us by the Gods according to the ancient text Sushruta Samhita. Certain medicinal plant names are given in Atharvaveda. A reference to this ‘art of the physician’ and its eight components is there in Mahabharat. Ayurveda has now been accepted as an alternate method of healing across the world.
Ayurveda is a holistic treatment, which is designed for healing the physical body by understanding the cause of disharmony in the entire system of the patient. This lack of harmony can be due to the imbalance in the Five elements called Panchabhutas or in the ten dual qualities or gunas in the body.
Ayurvedic treatment also aims to balance the three Doshas or humors in the human body – vata, pitta and kapha. Thus it actively incorporates health and healing with the body, mind and soul with its natural environment.
Ayurveda is known for its herbal concoctions, oil treatments and massages which revitalize the body and the mind. The methods of treatment varies according to individual physiology, the seasons and the geography, and along with natural medicines it also suggests daily routine, home remedies, yoga and diet as complimentary tools for easy and fast healing and recovering.
Among the various Ayurvedic treatments, Panchakarma is a procedure involving five therapies and it is considered as the best detoxifying as well as rejuvenating method for the body, the mind and the soul. The five purifying treatments used are vasti , nasya, virechana, vamana and raktha mokshana. Undergoing a Panchakarma treatment once in a year is sure to flush out all the toxins from every channels of the body. It balances the Doshas and restores complete physical and mental health and harmony. The treatment is highly individualistic as well as a prolonged process of 2-4 weeks. It should be done only by specially trained Ayurveda therapists and practitioners. The results are marvelous, multifaceted and long lasting.
