Ayurveda is a 5000 year old wholistic science that believes in the unity of Mind, Body and Soul.
It is the system of medicine from which Chinese as well as classical western medicine has arisen.
Its aim is to provide guidance regarding food and lifestyle so that healthy people can stay healthy and folks with health challenges can improve their health.
Ayurveda has two sides;
1.The preventive side guides us on how to avoid illness with the right diet and lifestyle, meditation and Yoga.
2.The curative side consists of eight branches of medicine-
Internal medicine; Surgery; Pediatrics; Psychiatry; Treatment of eyes, nose, ears, throat and head; Toxicology; and Rejuvenation.
HOW AYURVEDA WORKS.
As a very general example we know that continual stress (Mind) can cause an ulcer (Body) .If the ulcers persist and become debilitating ,this can affect you on a deeper level, causing despair or depression (Soul).
Ayurveda is a very effective system due to it’s primary principle of looking for the Root of the problem rather than the symptoms.
Treatment is customized based on the individual, because medicine is NOT “one-size fits all “.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS AYURVEDA?
Thousands of people around the globe have turned to Ayurveda and today Ayurveda is popular all over the world. Hospitals and clinics offer it, the media reports on it, researchers examine it, and people love it. Ayurveda has stood the test of time; people continue to practice it privately and openly, from little clinics in India to large clinics all over the world. The secret is out – ‘’It works’’
Since an Ayurvedic regimen is very individualized, its full effectiveness will depend on individual factors including the age, state of health of the individual and follow-up of treatments.
What do dry skin, cracking joints, anxiety and constipation have in common?
And what do acid, indigestion, competitiveness, anger, diarrhea and some eye conditions show?
Most of these symptoms aren’t considered particularly serious from a western medical view. You might mention them to your doctor, take some of the counter drugs, you might not even think to talk about them because nothing is wrong. Ayurveda recognizes all of these as sub-clinical expressions of imbalance that, left unchecked may become more serious Dis-ease. More and more people are turning to Ayurveda by diagnosing and acknowledging the Root causes of their health problems. Please contact Paul the Ayurveda practitioner.
