AYURVEDA


The Indian system of nature cure

Ayurvedic treatments are person specific rather than disorder specific. The age of the patient, the climate in which he lives, his cultural and social surroundings and his bodily constitution are taken into account before offering a prognosis. Touch, Inspection and interrogation are the main tools of diagnosis. Then the physician emphasizes a regimen of diet with the use of herbal medicines. Herbs are used to eliminate excesses and strengthen deficiencies. Their primary action is to stimulate particular organic functions. Thus Ayurveda aims to solve many health problems; only through the adjustment of diet-so there are no distressing side effects. Such an approach has proven effective over the centuries and has today become an internationally acclaimed form of healing, rejuvenation and healthy living.

AYURVEDIC PANCHAKARMA

Ayurveda, which means the science of healthy living, derives its name from the Sanskrit Word and VEDA (KNOWLEDGE). It looks at healing in a holistic fashion. The physical treatment philosophical and psychological approaches too. Any ailment in the body is viewed as a result of factors with special reference to the components of diet. It is here that Ayurveda recognizes there is different and so treatment too should be customized. The Ayurvedic principles are found in the Veda, one of the four Vedas of Hindu Mythologi.

This five-fold purification therapy aims at correcting the imbalance of the body’s Doshas or bioenergies (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) in order to maintain their inherent equilibrium and Ama, which forms as a result. Panchakarma therapy has three main stages: Poorva karma, Pradhanakarma and Paschatkarma.  Poorvaa karma, the first stage, comprises essential preliminary procedures for preparing the body to unload stored toxins. The treatments help to loosen Ama (toxins) and move it out to the deep structures into the GI tract, where Panchakarma’s cleaning therapies can then eliminate it. Pradhanakrarma is the second stage and includes the main cleansing therapies. Paschatkarma is the final stage and describes the measures employed after the main treatment, such as diet, medicines and daily routine.


History:-During the 500-600 B.C., Agasthya, Charaka, Sushrutha, Kashyapa, etc. the very knowledgeable philosophers churned from the Vedas the references to all illness, diseases, drug-medicines and compiled the samhitas. It is from this samhitas that the physicians later absorbed the knowledge of Ayurveda and applied them for curing illness. Ayurveda is not only the ancient Indian science of preventative health and healing but also a philosophy of living.

Philosophy:- Ayurveda removes the cause of disease and re-establishes balance to our system. According to Ayurveda, we are composed of three bodies physical, astral, causal ie. body, mind and soul. The earth existed billions of years before our arrival, which is mere three and a half million years ago. As our planet ages and we grow in universal wisdom & come to know the beauty of cosmic magnetism among all life forms.

PRINCIPLES OF AYURVEDA

Ayurveda is based on two important theories:-

1 .Thridosha Siddhanta and 
2 .Panchabhoota Siddhanta.
According to Thridosha siddanta, life is the manifestation of basic aspects named Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. As long as these three doshas are in balance, health prevails. When these doshas falls into imbalance, ill health occurs..... According to the
panchabhoota siddhanta, Universe is made of five basic factors named Prithwi, Jal, Vayu, Akasa, Agni.Though it is impossible to define these Bhootas perfect Prithwi as Earth and Jal as water Agni as fire Vayu as air and Akasa as space.

Ayurveda makes use of the relation between three dhoshas of Vatha (Small and Large Intestine , Spleen, Gall Bladder, Stomach, Duodenum, Pancreas) and Kapha Sinuses, Nostrils, Throat ) bhoothas of Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu and Akasa.

Bhootas of Vayu and Akasa activate Vatha,
-Bhootas of Agni activate Pitha and
Bhoothas of Prithvi and Jal activate Kapha.
Ayurveda proved through the centuries of experience and research that every material in the used as drugs, provided that they are processed and user rationally, according to these dhosas.
