Ayurveda - The Science of Life
The word Ayurveda consists of the words Ayur, meaning "longevity", and veda, meaning "related to knowledge" or "science". Ayurveda is a science that recognizes how nature and the human body works. It supports the body so that it may use its own powers of healing. By understanding how an underlying field of energy and intelligence gives rise to material creation, it contains deep insight into the workings and effects of mind on the body. It recognizes that we are all unique and how we can remain in tune with that singular nature.
Ayurveda, the science of life, has brought true health and wellness to millions of individuals throughout the ages with simple changes in diet and daily living practices. Incorporating these proven methods into your lifestyle can bring about beneficial changes in your life.
"When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need."
– Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb
This ancient art of healing has been practiced continuously for over 5,000 years after being developed over thousands of years in Southern India. The principles of many natural healing systems, now being more widely used in the West, have their roots in Ayurveda. Ayurvedic practices restore the balance and harmony of the individual, resulting in self-healing, good health and longevity. According to Ayurveda, our natural state is one of health, happiness and an inner sense of well-being. Health is defined as the body being clear of toxins, wastes being efficiently eliminated, organs functioning normally, the mind is at peace, and emotions are calm and positive. In a busy, stressful and toxic world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins causing deterioration in bodily functioning. This eventually weakens our systems, which opens the door for chronic, degenerative, and non-specific diseases to develop. These imbalances can evolve into specific diseases, ultimately impacting our health.
Ayurveda is the essence of old Hindu Medicare techniques, which are based on the curing the diseases from the roots. In Ayurveda, whole body is supposed as a mutually responding system. A single part not responding well may cause a disturbance in all body. Ayurveda works for the aim of complete health.
Allopathic techniques are based on the concept of sudden and instantaneous relief, so often the patient get rid of his problem for a short period, but the origin of disease is not eliminated, finally there comes the probability in future for that origin to be worse. Allopathic techniques uses antigen that introduces a chemical, heaving opposite effect of what the body is producing. So there is always a risk with the power and supplied quantity of the drug.
On the other hand, Ayurvedic health-care is based on natural and herbal techniques and supplements, which are 100% side effect free. Ayurveda does not believe in antidotes and antigens, very rarely those techniques are used, Ayurveda works not to suppress the system of body, but to go to the origin and cure the basic disturbing element. In such treatments there are very low chances of side effect and the benefit of the body is forever. It gives you a complete health treatment, which works on the complete body system so it makes you feel better in your entire body.
