Ayurvedic medicine or Ayurveda is considered as one of the oldest healing systems in the world. Developed more than a thousand years ago in India, the system is based on establishing a balance between the mind, the body, and the spirit. Ayurveda is all about promoting good health and not just about fighting disease. The treatments of Ayurveda vary and depend on the specific health problems of the patient. In various countries, Ayurveda is practiced in various forms, mainly as a complementary and alternative medicine system.
According to Ayurveda, every person is made from a combination of five elements – Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and Space. Combinations of these elements give form to three life forces called doshas, which control the way the human body functions. In no particular order, these are:
Vata – Space + Air
Pitta – Fire + Water
Kapha – Water + Earth
A person’s overall health and wellness often depends upon the balance of the doshas. An Ayurvedic practitioner with training and experience can help you restore the doshas by assessing your lifestyle, diet and other habits. The exam includes – examination of weight, feeling the pulse, checking your body language, closely inspecting your senses and asking some relevant questions. I may also ask you to bring along your medical history and give details about your behavioural traits and illnesses. Once the primary dosha is established, you will be given an Ayurvedic regimen to follow. The treatments offered in Ayurveda can include – aromatherapy, dietary changes, herbology, breathing exercises, yoga, lifestyle changes, meditation etc.
