In this AI world, we live in, during these recent turbulent years, we have utilized
and have been grateful for our healthcare system that managed to encompass
our dilemmas and foes into a minuscule! We’ve also quite understood the
importance of a flourishing healthcare system during these testing times, a
a healthcare system that stood tall through all the difficulties and enough
gratitude has been paid off for the same!
However, the unhealthy lifestyle patterns we have been accustomed to have
been brought into the limelight meanwhile and clarity has been shed on how
just our body itself is the real healthcare system we all need.
Paving the way for our body to recuperate and heal is the journey that is actually
required for us to be engaged in, and since our body is a wondrous miracle
, taking care is no easy journey.
However, the science that dates back to 5000 years ago stupendously still
proves relevant, during these times owing to its beautiful set of guidelines and
regimens we need to partake during specific conditions such as in a specific
season, or even a day that involves a detailed regimen on diet and lifestyle.
Ayurveda is a millennia-old tradition of being one with nature that is ancient,
profound, and effective. It is based on a deep understanding of nature’s myriad
gifts to help us heal from various ailments and be at our best – physically,
mentally, and spiritually. Ayurveda is a smart reminder for us to adjust our
lifestyle and absorb the ancient wisdom of nature and its impact on man in a
world where we are losing touch with nature day by day. We think that good
health is valuable in Ayurveda and that by practicing Ayurvedic therapies and
making lifestyle adjustments, you may maintain your health throughout your
THE BEAUTY OF AYURVEDA.
The adaptation of a well-planned Dinacharya (day-to-day activities),
Rutucharya (adaptation to various seasons by strictly following the rules and
regulations that must be followed during each season and seasonal change-off
periods), Sadvritta and Sadachara (righteous things we do in our lives), and
Achara Rasayana (ethical conduct of life, activities, and diet that enhance our
body-mind immunity delays aging, and rejuvenates us) will aid in disease.
Along with this, planned management of diet, sleep, lifestyle, and celibacy,
attending to our body’s natural reflexes and urges such as hunger, sleep, thirst,
urination, defecation, sneeze, etc. as and when they occur, holding on to our
negative emotions such as anger, lust, enviousness, fear, etc., and staying away
from abnormal contacts (subjects) etc renders an individual healthy and
However, if we disobey all of these guidelines, we will develop one or more
diseases or disorders that will disrupt not just our health but also our daily
lives. In this situation, we may need to take medications and therapies in order
to recover from our ailments. For this to happen, we may need the assistance
of a well-functioning medical system.
WHAT IS THE BASIS OF AN AYURVEDIC TREATMENT?
Ayurveda therapies are also likewise governed by a set of qualitative conditions, it
lays down a patient’s journey from contracting a disease, and ends in
rehabilitation procedures that guarantee longevity from the therapies and
medicines administered- qualities mentioned for each of the steps that come
Chikitsa Chatushpad, or the four limbs of therapy, medical system, or hospital
management as described in Ayurvedic scriptures, is likely the first of its sort to
be described in a medical book. Chikitsa Chatushpada addresses four key
components of a therapy regimen or a well-functioning medical system. It
necessitates each member’s active participation in the healing process.
Such as a physician, the patient, medicine, and a helper, listing down four
mandatory qualities necessary to be qualified as each.
When we say Ayurveda, what mostly cultures our mind is the panchakarma
therapy, what exactly is it?
Ayurveda believes in an equilibrium of the mind, body, and soul, an equilibrium
of the dosas that govern our body in order for us to christen an individual
healthy, hence ayurvedic therapies focus on tallying the dosic status, which
comes broadly under the therapies brahmana and langhana.
The subtypes of the former include panchakarma therapy
Panchakarma, or Shodhana Chikitsa, which literally means “five actions” (Pancha
means “five” and karma means “action”). It is one of the key foundations of
the ayurvedic approach. It is an all-natural, holistic technique for rejuvenating
and purifying the body in which each core function of the body is targeted
through a series of five major therapies to cleanse your system and rid it of the
toxins and waste materials that gradually accumulate in the body over time in
narrow, minute areas called srotas.’
Let’s take a look at each of them-
The nose, as well as important organs located above the neck
In Ayurveda, the head of the human body is equated to the root of the tree, so
it’s critical that the organs in this area stay clear and balanced. Nasyam is a
method of gently introducing medicated oil droplets into the nose, which is
absorbed by the body’s circulatory system, nourishing all organs above the
neck and clearing out any blockages and diseases of the neck, and head, nose,
scalp, and hair. A previous preparation is required, in which the person’s face
and neck are steam-treated to make them susceptible to the drug. The
specifically medicated mixture irritates the mucus lining of the sinuses, causing
the collected doshas to be secreted.
● Abhyanga(oil massage)
This popular therapy is recommended by Ayurveda as a daily practice, and it is
well concurred! Uzhichil, also known as Abhyanga, is a unique and highly
helpful oil massage in which a considerable amount of oil infused with herbs
(selected specifically to heal the person’s condition) is used to perform a deep
massage by one or even two masseurs. During the massage, the medicinal
herbs’ benefits are distributed throughout the body and absorbed by the skin,
while the vigorous strokes stimulate the body’s blood and lymphatic
circulation, delivering the active elements in the herbs to all desired locations
of the body. It’s no surprise that it’s suggested that you do it every day!.
It aids you in alleviating general fatigue and bestows you with a good
sleep improves your circulation and protects your skin from drying up!
There include many other forms of therapy such as tarpana
,putapaka,kashayavasthi,pizhichil,thalapothichil, sirovasthy, lepanam, dhanyaml
adhara,kateevasthy,upanaham, thalam, etc which proves quite effective and
renders you a longtime relief along with guaranteed benefits of longevity,
enhanced health and body structures!
Ayurveda is your healthy companion in life!
Ayurveda teaches you to recognize that being healthy is your body’s natural
condition. It is claimed to be “optimum health” when an individual and their
surroundings are in harmony. The body is said to be out of balance when a
person is suffering from anxiety or illness. Experts believe that because
imbalance does not happen overnight, everyone has the opportunity to slow
down or perhaps prevent it entirely. Over time, the medical system and
hospital management have evolved. The healthcare system has made
remarkable technological advances. However, the fundamentals remain the
same and will remain so as we progress through new eras. The ultimate goal
will be to treat mankind’s ills and make him fit to live with improved body-mind immunity. Even though the methods and costs of therapy and medical
care have changed, today’s patient can overcome his morbidity provided he
receives the proper doctor, good medicine, and compassionate care at the
right time. We respect the ancient seers of Ayurvedic knowledge for
propagating the fundamentals of medical science in ancient times and for
laying the groundwork for the future development of the field.
