Ayurvedic medicine is a complete systematic approach to health & wellbeing. It has the ability to help people of all ages who are ready to take their first steps on the path to wellness. The Ayurvedic approach to health care is focussed on not only identifying & treating the symptoms of an illness but determining & removing its root cause.
Ayurveda has two features that make it a unique science and separate it from other health modalities.
Firstly, it is based on the principle that each individual has their own unique body make up known as Constitution or Prakruti, which is determined by the makeup of their parents and becomes apparent at birth.
Once you know your body’s constitution it becomes much easier to for an individual to live a healthy life by following a compatible lifestyle and diet that keeps the body’s constitution in balance. If at any stage an in-balance occurs, it is much easier to structure a specific program to redress the imbalance rather than just treating the symptoms of the illness as they occur.
The second feature of this science is that each individual has a unique bodily intelligence. When this intelligence is kept in a balanced state the body has the ability to flush out waste products from cellular metabolism more easily. When the body is unable to regularly flush out these toxins they will start to collect in the tissues leading to more wear and tear on the body, both physically and mentally.
Therefore a balanced body intelligence is necessary for flushing out toxins, keeping the body healthy by maintaining this equilibrium and preventing problems from manifesting. When these imbalances occur, it is important to be able to identify what has influenced this change and to redress these factors through diet, lifestyle and environmental changes. This is the role of the Ayurvedic practitioner.
An Ayurvedic practitioner will carry out a through body assessment & case history to determine which of the three bodily intelligences are affected, whether Vata, Pitta or Kapha. The practitioner will then assess how deep this imbalance has gone and which tissues have been affected.
The practitioner will then assess whether the imbalance is in its preliminary stages or has gone deeper into the body to manifest as a particular ailment and will then structure a specific program for the client to bring the body intelligence back into balance.
Other points of difference
Ayurveda believes that illness begins from disharmony between mind, body and soul. Most of the time the problems & symptoms that manifest at a physical level begin from imbalances at a mental level, so it’s very important to identify a patient’s mental state.
Many illnesses arise from poor metabolism. According to Ayurveda, there is no nutritional benefit from eating only organic foods if we are unable to metabolise these foods properly.
Ayurveda has a systematic approach to healing by detoxifying the body and rejuvenating body, mind & spirit.
The healing principles of Ayurveda have remained unchanged for centuries. Its philosophy does not change in response to the latest fashions in the health industry but are based on centuries of scientific observation of the natural world.
