Ayurvedic medicine – the science of life
The term ayurveda itself is self-explanatory of what Ayurveda is. Ayu is life and veda is knowing or knowledge. Hence Ayurveda is knowledge of life. Although Ayurvedic medicine is habitually linked to Hindu traditions, its insight surpasses all man-made boundaries and addresses humanity as a whole.
Ayurveda is the oldest medical system known to mankind, the root of all latter medical practices and systems. Health is certainly the foundation of everything in life, but only when it is complete – physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual – in a word, whole!
All medical systems in the world deal with the topic of health care, which they define differently. Allopathic medicine defines health not only as the absence of disease, but as a general well-being in different aspects of life – in the field of psychology it is defined as mental health; when it comes to physiology, as the absence of pathological conditions; in the field of sociology it is defined by successful interpersonal relationships, etc.
Ayurveda states that a person is healthy when: all three doshas are in balance; when body tissues (dhatu) are properly formed and function in balance; when the metabolic processes in the body, ie. digestive fire (agni) are in balance; when the excretion of waste products (mala – stool, urine, sweat) is in balance; when the spirit is in the state of internal stability, and when sensory organs are balanced.
When defining health, Ayurveda directs us to the whole – health is not merely the absence of disease, but the ease of life – joy forever present in us!
Due to its holistic approach, Ayurveda has shown a great potential as a discipline complementary to modern medicine. It’s main advantage is the lack of negative side effects. Ayurvedic herbal supplements have positive effects on the whole organism – when taken to improve the function of a particular organ, the supplements also support the healthy functioning of all the other organs in the body.
Ayurveda has an exceptional preventive capacity. It examines in detail how a specific disease appears in the body and, just like allopathic medicine, establishes six stages of the disease: accumulation, aggravation, dissemination, localization, manifestations and complications. By an ancient method of pulse diagnosis the imbalances can be determined at the first level, which means that the occurrence of the disease can be prevented by minute changes in diet and daily routine.
Disease does not happen over night. Long before any bodily symptoms surface, a lot of things have already happened on a cause-effect level. The scientist, researchers and patients themselves have only recently begun to realize the role of self-healing in a recuperation process, but are still unable to determine its origin. However, Ayurveda knows the way and the strategies needed to initiate the self-healing powers inherent to all individuals.
