Ayurveda

Ayurveda is India’s traditional, natural system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally translated means "science of life" or "practices of longevity." Ayurveda is the system of health care conceived and developed by the seers (rishis) and natural scientists through centuries of observations, experiments, discussions, and meditations. Ayurveda is truly holistic medicine.

Ayurveda emphasizes prevention of disease, rejuvenation of our body systems, and extension of life span. The profound premise and promise of Ayurveda is that through certain practices, not only we can prevent heart disease and make our headaches go away, but we can also better understand ourselves and the world around us. Also we can live a long healthy life in balance and harmony, achieve our fullest potential and express our true inner nature on a daily basis.

Ayurveda provides an integrated approach for preventing and treating illness through lifestyle interventions and natural therapies. It is based on the view that the elements, forces, and principles that comprise all of nature - and that holds it together and make it function - are also seen in human beings. In Ayurveda, the mind (or consciousness) and the body (or physical mass) not only influence each other - they are each other. Together they form the mind-body. The universal consciousness is an intelligent, aware ocean of energy that gives rise to the physical world we perceive through our five senses. Ayurvedic philosophy and practices link us to every aspect of ourselves and remind us that we are in union with every aspect of nature, each other, and the entire universe.

Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements: Air, Ether(space),Fire, Water and Earth. These elements are represented in humans by three "doshas", or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When these doshas are in balanced state it leads to the health. When any of the doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting a right balance of the three doshas ("tridoshas"). Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help individuals reduce the excess dosha. These will help him to stay balanced,thus free from the diseases.

According to Ayurveda, human body is composed of the three Doshas, the seven dhatus and three malas. Equilibrium of the dosha, dhatu and mala maintains the healthy state of body and mind. But imbalance in any of them gives rise to disease. The purpose of Ayurveda is to maintain this equilibrium. This can be achieved by two methods. One is to pacify the dosha or by eliminate the dosha by nearby route i.e. Panchakarma. Panchakarma acts as curative as well as preventive therapy. It is purifying as well as rejuvenating procedure. Panchakarma is the soul of Ayurveda. As promised by Ayurveda, Ayurveda believes in treating the disease at its root, not just symptomatic treatment and boosting the body's capacity to resist and fight disease. Panchakarma Chikitsa(treatment) for diseases like Infertility, Psoriasis, Insomnia, early ageing, irritability, lowered concentrating capacity, Hypertension, Hyperacidity following stress and strain of today's day to day life problems. With Panchakarma principle, we also treat chronic diseases like Diabetes, Arthritis, Asthma, Spondylosis, Chronic Constipation, Colitis and Skin Diseases like Psoriasis,etc.

Water is the chief companion of our food. It helps in digestion as well as absorption of food. For our body there are three essential constituents.

Now in this modern era, due to several factors like chemicals in the food, pollution, bad food habits, etc. toxins get accumulate in the body and further on leads to different types of diseases. So diet plays a very vital role in our day to day life.

Body Constitution (Prakruti Parikshan):

Body Constitution is the speciality of Ayurveda.

Body constitution is the constitution which is formed at the time of birth. It depends on various factors like time of conception, diet taken by mother during pregnancy and time of delivery.

There are different types of body constitution like vata constitution, pitta constitution , kapha constitution, also there are dual combinations like vata-pitta, pitta-kapha, kapha-vata,etc. There is also balance constitution which is the best and has balance of all 3 constituents.

Importance of the body type is that after determining it we come to know about the diseases that person can suffer in the future. So it allows to advise proper diet and lifestyle for that person to stay free from the diseases. Body constitution also helps the diseased patients to get relief from it.

Body constitution also helps in deciding the type of Panchakarma required for the person.
