About Ayurveda

 

Ayurveda medicine is world’s oldest holistic healing system. It is based on the belief that health and wellness is a delicate balance between mind, body and soul. Ayurveda is an ancient medical science. The word Ayurveda is composed of two words of Sanskrit ,Ayur (meaning life), Veda (meaning knowledge). Ayurveda deals with matters regarding to day-to-day life, longevity and health.

Ayurveda is a traditional system of medicine and medication, based on experience and observation. This system of medicine and medication is more than 3000 years old. According to mythological story, Dhanvanteri was the first physician to use Ayurveda. In modern India also, Ayurveda is being used. It has also reached outside India in countries like the UAE and Saudi Arabia and several persons from other countries also take advantage of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda gives us a model to look at each individual as a unique makeup of the three doshas and to thereby design treatment protocols that specifically address a person health challenges. When any of the doshas (Vata, Pitta or Kapha) become accumulated, Ayurveda will suggest specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to assist the individual in reducing the dosha that has become excessive. We may also suggest certain herbal supplements to hasten the healing process. If toxins in the body are abundant, then a cleansing process known as Pancha Karma is recommended to eliminate these unwanted toxins.
