Ayurveda is a 5000-year- old system of healthy living and healing suitable for everyone. It draws its principles from the 'laws of nature' and is tailored to 'prakurthi', a Sanskrit word which means one's individual constitution.
The fundamental pillars of Ayurveda are the three doshas called Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. Dosha means impurity or fault. The three doshas, Vatha, Pitha and Kapha are a combination of air, aether, earth, fire and water, the five elements which possess qualities that impact our body. If one knows the predominant dosha of their body type, they can live a healthy life free from diseases by focusing on appropriate diet and life style.
Ayurvedic practitioners assess a person's 'prakurthi' and recommend appropriate treatment or way of life. They study a person's body type imbalances by using various diagnostic procedures like reading the pulse, observing skin and tongue colour, and understanding the person's life style. This is the first stage of ayurvedic treatment. The next course of action can include Ayurvedic detoxification and rejuvenation therapies, Panchakarma, massage, etc. as per the diagnosis. The practitioners can also prescribe traditional Ayurvedic plant-formulas and dietary advice.
Ayurvedic treatments can bring relief to many common medical conditions like Allergies, Insomnia, Digestive problems, Infertility, Hormonal imbalance, Menopausal symptoms, Arthritis, Rheumatism, Stress, Anxiety, etc. For overall well-being and inner balance, yoga and meditation, correct diet and life style are important aspects Ayurveda prescribes.
