Ayurveda and Ayurvedic Treatments
Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of preventive and curative health care. According to this system, bodily health is determined by three biological principles, called doshas viz. Vata (air), which regulates movement; Pitta (fire), which regulates metabolism; and Kapha (water), which regulates structure. "Ayur" means life and "Ved" means knowledge (knowledge of life.). This holistic science practiced for more than 5000 years is the knowledge of complete balance of the Body, Mind and Spirit, including the emotions and psychology, on all levels. It includes in its consideration, longevity, rejuvenation and self-realization therapies through herbs, diet, exercise, yoga, massage, aromas, ‘tantras’, ‘mantras’ and meditation. It is an approach to physical health, mental clarity and spiritual fulfillment, that goes back to the ‘rishis’ or sages of ancient India and is codified in the Vedas, the sacred texts of Hinduism.
Ayurveda as a way of life prescribes remedies for many of the modern-day ailments. Daily life regimen as per Ayureveda are: keen observation of one’s own body, proper exercises, seasonal food habits, control of senses, the art of living, patience, perception of all creatures and constant interaction with God and people. As a System of Medicine, Ayurveda eliminates the fundamental causes that produce diseases, rather than just treating the outward symptoms. Thus Ayurveda ensures long-lasting health and happiness with out leaving behind any harmful side effects.
