Ayurveda – A Complete Science of Life

00017833814EE-849x565A 5000 year old system that follows natural healing, Ayurveda dates back to the Vedic culture. With the world going ‘All-natural”, Ayurveda has resurged and found its true place throughout the world once more.

You may think that Ayurveda is the new fad system of healing ailments through natural herbs and potions. But Ayurveda has been around since the Vedic times, and in fact the Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as the Tibetan medicine are both inspired by Ayurveda as well. But that is not all, even the early Greeks embraced the concepts that have been mentioned in thousand years old Ayurveda medical texts and inscriptions found.

What is Ayurveda?

You may think that Ayurveda is just a system of treating illnesses. But in reality, Ayurveda offers a body of wisdom that aims to educate people on how to stay fit as well as reach their full potential. ‘Ayur’ stands for Life, where as ‘Veda’ stands for science; and this is why Ayurveda has been termed as ‘Science of Life’. It teaches us how our health is based on the balanced integration of the environment around us, and having the body-mind-spirit in sync.

According to the scriptures in Ayurveda, there are 3 primary forces that play an important role in our life and each individual has these energies in different proportions, which forms the basis of our nature as well as our health. Vata is Wind, Pitta is Fire and Kapha is the Earth. All of us harness the powers of all three forces, though in most of us one power dominates the others. Let us see the common characteristics found in people who have one of these forces dominating the others:

  • People who have Vata dominate their systems are deep thinkers and full of energy, easily changeable and enthusiastic about life.
  • People who have Pitta dominate their system are more intense, highly intelligent and goal oriented. These are the high achievers in life who have a strong appetite for life and strive hard for success.
  • People who have Kapha dominate their system are more grounded, easy going and nurturing by nature.

But just like these forces define our nature, an imbalance can lead to physical and mental sickness. Ayurveda aims to find the imbalances in the body, and then provide a suitable treatment that uses herbs, massages, aromatherapy and changes in diet, meditation and even music to bring about a balance.

Ayurveda – The holistic healing approach:

Ayurveda means the ‘Science of life and longevity’ and is a centuries old traditional healing system in India. But don’t think that Ayurveda is not based on facts and sciences. In fact, Ayurveda is a qualitative system, which aims to heal all three – mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda removes the root cause of all ailments and uses 4 different systems to bring about the healing.

  • Shodan is a system of cleansing
  • Shaman is palliation
  • Rasayana stands for rejuvenation
  • Satyajaya stands for mental hygiene

All medicines used in Ayurveda come from plants and natural herbs. Since none of the medications are synthetic, there are no side effects and though the treatment might take slightly longer to show results, the patient finds permanent relief from diseases that often have no permanent cure in allopathic medicines. Add to that the lifestyle changes and exercises that Ayurveda recommends patients to bring about, and you find a medical system that removes the disease from the root cause.

But even though Ayurveda is centuries old, it still has varied branches that are sophisticated in their approach and handle different areas, just like allopathic treatments. This shows how advanced this medical system really is, and the fact that people have started turning to Ayurveda once again only proves that.


Does Ayurveda really work?

Ayurveda has been around for centuries. And the fact that the treatments have no adverse side effects has turned more and more people across the globe in the favour of Ayurvedic medicines. In fact, many foreigners travel to India just to study more about the practices of Ayurveda and adopt them in everyday life.

According to a study conducted at the University of Washington, Seattle and University of Los Angeles, California, it has been proved that the Ayurvedic intervention provides significant improvements in patients who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, the results were at par with allopathic medications, without the adverse side effects that are always associated with synthetic medicines. Published in June 2011 in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology, this study has given Ayurvedic treatments around the globe a boost because it is based on scientific evidence.

Ayurveda – a complete science of life is an intricate form of traditional medicine and because it balances the inner forces of the body, it is a more holistic approach to treat serious ailments. It definitely is worth a try!
