Ayurvedic Treatment: Magic Potion for All

Indeed, Ayurvedic treatment does not mean suppressing the main symptoms and creating some new ones as side effects of the main treatment, although it removes the root cause and gives lasting relief. In conjunction with medicine, proper diet, proper yoga (exercise prescribed in Ayurveda) and living style is also advised. If you wise to take medicine to remove the root cause at the same time living a life style which is increasing the cause of concern, there is no chance of getting well or securing relief.

Basically, the word ‘Ayurveda’ is a system of medicine prescribed in Indian scripture i.e., Veda. This is known as the science of life, which is practised in other parts of the world also as a form of alternative medicine. Ayurveda entirely relies on five basic elements that are known as Panchtatva (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space). On the other hand, Blood, flesh, Fat, Bone, Marrow, Chyle, and Semen are considered as the primary constituent elements of the body. In that, Ayurvedic treatment gives impetus on a balance of three substances: wind/spirit/air, phlegm, and bile. These three basic things represent divine forces.

Upon following the actual Ayurvedic treatment, the concept of Panchkarma crops up to eliminate the toxic elements form in the human body. For that, eight discipline of Ayurvedic treatment has been categorised. They are shalya-chkitsa, salakyam, kaya-chikitsa, Bhuta vidya, kaumarabhrtyam, agadatantram, rasayanam, and vajiykaranam. Apart from this, there are four main classifications of management of disease in Ayurveda: shodan, or cleansing; shaman or palliation; rasayana, or rejuvenation; and satvajaya, or mental hygiene.

Ayurvedic medicine mainly comprises of powders, tablets, decoctions, and medicated oils etc., which are prepared by natural herbs, plants and minerals. These medicines are extracted from natural sources and not synthetic, they are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects.

In Ayurvedic treatment, any disease is seen as an imbalance in the dosha system, so the diagnostic process strives to determine which complication is under-active or overactive in a body. The diagnosis is often taken over a course in order that the Ayurvedic physician determines accurately what part of the body is being affected. To diagnose problems, Ayurvedic physicians often use long questionnaires and interviews to find out a person’s dosha patterns and physical and psychological history. Ayurvedic physicians also intricately examine the pulse, tongue, face, lips, eyes, and fingernails for abnormalities that they can indicate deeper problems in the internal systems. Some physicians also use laboratory tests to assist in diagnosis.

In the present day scenario, Ayurvedic treatment is successful running by professionals both in the urban and the rural areas. Even statistics of World Health Organisation shows the popularity of traditional medicine, on which a significant number of population depends on Ayurvedic medicine for their primary health care.

Summary:
Ayurvedic treatment is known as the science of life that is practised in other parts of the world also as a form of alternative medicine. It removes the root cause and gives lasting relief. In conjunction with medicine, proper diet, proper yoga (exercise prescribed in Ayurveda) and living style is also advised.
