Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of traditional Indian medicine. It is believed to have originated around 5000 BC. Derived from the Sanskrit words ‘ayu’ (life) and ‘ved’ (knowledge), Ayurveda is not just a health care system but a scientific lifestyle that promises you a balanced and harmonious life.
The Ayurvedic Treatment Philosophy
According to Ayurveda it is possible for you to live a long and healthy life through intelligent co-ordination of your body (sharira), mind (mana), senses (indriya) and soul (atma).
Ayurvedic science revolves around the five elements (panchmahabhoot) i.e. earth (prithvi), water (jal), fire (agni), air (vayu), ether (aakash) that goes into the making of the three physical energies – Vata, Pitta, Kapha and the three mental energies – Satwa, Rajas and Tamas which inturn determines the constitution (prakriti). Ayurveda thus offers a unique blend of science and philosophy that balances the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components necessary for holistic health.
