Ayurveda is the knowledge of life. The word Ayurveda comes from “Ayur” which means “life” and “veda” which stands for “Knowledge” This 5,000-year-old healing tradition from India teaches us how our lives can be enriched, enhanced and extended without interference from disease or aging. Ayurveda teaches us that good health is not simply the absence of disease, but a state of harmonious and dynamic balance on all levels encompassing the mind, body, soul, and environment.
Yes and No. Yes in the sense that it originated in India and is intimately related with various rituals and traditions that are closely related to the “Sanatana Dharma” of India. No in the sense, that it does not preach the worship of any particular deity or ask you to follow a particular sect. Ayurveda advises you to achieve four aims -dharma (not religious but social duties), artha – to earn wealth through honest means, Kama – to enjoy life and Moksha-self realization.
Ayurveda dates back an estimated 5,000-10,000 years and is widely considered to be the oldest form of health care in the world. It is understood by many scholars that knowledge of Ayurveda spread out from India and influenced the ancient Chinese system of medicine, Unani medicine, and the humoral medicine practiced by Hippocrates in Greece. For this reason, Ayurveda is often referred to as the “Mother of all healing.”
Ayurvedic approach to diagnose the illness is very systematic and scientific. The logical thoroughness and minuteness of methods employed in Inquiry and Investigation of each and every factor or phenomenon of the patient concerning his habit, constitution, illness and environment are the prime factors for the perfect diagnosis. Tridosha ( Vata, Pitta and Kapha ) are the three Bio-Energies, which governs the body. The concept of these three Bio-Energies is unique. Balance of Tridosha means perfect health, and this is the basic principle of Ayurveda.
Modern medicine tries to treat and remove symptoms rather than treating the patient suffering from it. This stems from the view that all people are more or less the same. Ayurveda makes special contributions by addressing the uniqueness of each patient and by helping each body to heal itself.
Internal medicine (Kaya chikilsa), Pediatrics and gynecology (Balaroga Chikilsa), Surgery (Shalya Chikilsa), E.N.T- ear,nose and throat surgery (Shalakya Chikilsa), Toxicology (Agadatantra), Rejuvanation (Rasayana), Study of sexual function and reproduction (Vajikarana chikilsa), Psychiatry (Manasroga chikilsa) Notice how pediatrics and geriatrics were given important place in healthcare even in those early days of history.
‘Vata’, ‘Pitta’ and ‘Kapha’ are the names of tridoshas. Vata (air), Pitta (bile) and Kapha (phlegm) mean more than literal. Doshas are basically three different forms of energy. The three doshas contain two of the five elements as any other matter. Thus ‘vata’ is made up of air and space and hence the lightest ‘dosha’. ‘Pitta’ contains fire and water, and ‘kapha’ with earth and water is the heaviest of all ‘doshas’4. They work as a team in a natural healthy individual and could be termed, ‘the executives’ of the human organism. Perfect balance of these three doshas(energies) is the basis of well being. These constituents give specific properties to ‘doshas’ with each ‘dosha’ having one property particular to itself and two opposite to others. Hence the character of doshas is influenced mainly by what is eaten as also by the ambient temperature, season, input, mental state etc. In most persons, either one or a combination of ‘doshas’ would be dominant. This defines the constitution of the person.
