The roots of ayurveda

Ayurveda (Ayur–Life, Veda–Science Literally meaning Life Science) is one of the greatest gifts of India to the world. The oldest system of medicine, it has its roots to the Vedic period of ancient India. The knowledge and use of various methods of healing, prevention, longevity and surgery in Ayurveda is believed to have been given to mankind, by direct divine revelation to holy sages and seers during their direct cognition & meditation. Initially it was transmitted from generation to generation in oral tradition and later this precious knowledge was converted to books and other forms of reference by Ayurvedic scholars. Ayurveda, recommends harmony of the body, mind and soul and It has developed a system of treatment based on the inherent ability of the human body to rejuvenate, heal and to restore its natural balance. 

Principles of Ayurveda 

Ayurveda considers each person as a unique individual made up of five primary elements namely air, water, fire, earth and space (ether) just as in nature. These basic elements present in us have ability to combine among themselves to create our various physiological functions. Such combination of elements is called as Doshas, which can be translated as bio-energies.  

Thus the elements of Ether & Fire combine to create Vata Dosha, a bio energy which governs the principle of movement and can be seen as the force controlling nerve impulses, circulation, respiration and elimination etc., The elements of fire and water combine to create Pitta Dosha, a bio energy which governs the transformation (metobolism) and seen as the force behind transformation of foods into nutrients, metabolism in the organ, tissue and cellular systems. Finally the elements of water and earth combine to create Kapha Dosha, a bio energy which is responsible for growth and can be seen as a force adding structure to our body and offering protection in form of fluid to various organs and tissues.   

Ayurveda believes when the Doshas function in harmonized manner, it results in well-being of a person. But the disharmony between the Doshas, will result in elemental imbalance, thus leading to various ailments. The treatment to such imbalances is imparted by various therapies, massages, herbal medicines, diet control and exercise in form of yoga and meditation.  

The Ayurveda Treatement. 

The primary purpose of any Ayurveda treatment is to cure disease by re-establishing the equilibrium of Doshas to harmonized desirable levels. The essence of treatment is the removal of the root cause toxins so as to give permanent relief and avoidance of causative factors. The medicines for the treatment mainly comprises of powders, tablets, decoctions, medicated oils etc. prepared from natural herbs, plants and minerals. As the medicines are from natural sources (not synthetic) they are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects. In addition to medicines, proper diet and living style is also advised so that one don’t go back to the days of creating Dosha imbalances.
