Learn about Ayurveda the basic science and treatments
Ayurveda is India’s oldest and time-honored method of healing. The medicine system of ayurveda is based on several centuries of medical practice experience, passed down from one generation to another. Ayurveda derived from the ancient civilizations of India, about 3,000 to 5,000 years ago, which makes it the world’s oldest existing therapeutic system.
Two words, when combined, are what make up the word ayurveda. It came from the words Ayu, which means life, and Veda, which means knowledge. Considered the science of life, the practice of ayurveda consists of health care (physically, mentally and spiritually) of human beings.
According to the philosophy of ayurveda, life is a fusion of mind, body, soul, and senses. It is not just limited to the symptoms of the body; it also provides a thorough knowledge about mental, social, and spiritual health. Therefore, ayurveda is a system and way of life of healing not just the body, but also the mind, a holistic, qualitative science of longevity and health.
To promote great health and prolong life and to totally eliminate the dysfunction and illness of the body are two primary goals of ayurveda. Another objective of ayurveda is to attain nirvana or freedom from all types of desires. This is mainly attained through optimal health, which is considered as the ultimate foundation of life.
Based on the ayurveda philosophy, all things are said to be comprised of 5 fundamental elements called the Panchamahabhuthas – prithvi (earth), tejas (fire), jala (water), vayu (wind), and akasha (space). They work and exist together (wherein it is dominated by one or more elements). Our body consists of products of these fundamental elements, in the shape of doshas, dhatus (tissues) and malas (waste products). Hence, the Panchamahabhuthas acts as ayurveda’s groundwork of all analysis and treatment methods.
An ancient treatment, ayurveda uses therapeutic herbs to balance the body, mind and spirit with the surroundings. An ayurvedic massage blends ayurvedic oils and massage into one therapeutic spa experience that is designed to improve circulation, remove the body’s toxins, and relax.
