Benefits of Ayurveda. “The fundamental concept of Ayurveda is to maintain health. Ayurveda does not look at the disease. … Many Ayurvedic treatments — like meditation and individualized diets — are therefore aimed at keeping a person healthy, not curing them of disease.
The cause of disease in Ayurveda is viewed as a lack of proper cellular function due to an excess or deficiency of vata, pitta or kapha. … In the physical body, vata is the subtle energy of movement, pitta the energy of digestion and metabolism, and kapha the energy that forms the body’s structure.
The growing popularity of Ayurveda around the world is due to its holistic approach towards wellness of life and true spirituality. Ayurveda provides compassionate, individualised health care and 100% natural medicines, and yoga which is complementary to Ayurveda offers a peaceful mind and body. The combination of these two is in today’s world are the most sought after traditional solutions to modern health conditions.
Everyone is unique in every way. Ayurveda knows this and believes that your approach to living, growing and healing should reflect this too. Diets, medicines, careers that work for others may not work for you. Life choices that work for you may not work for others. Accept this.
Healthy according to Ayurveda is your natural state. It’s you and your environment in balance. Unhealthy (e.g. anxiety, obesity, constipation, depression, etc.) is you and your environment out of balance. The good news is imbalance doesn’t usually happen overnight. So if you can recognize it, you can stop it. or slow it down.
Another principle of Ayurveda is that we are made of the same stuff and governed by the same laws as nature. Ayurveda recognizes five elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
How those elements behave and interact is significant. For example the fire in you looks like digestion, inflammation, ambition, anger. The earth looks like cell walls, bones, stubbornness and loyalty. All the elements are at work inside us but our body type, personality, and behaviors are usually governed by just one or two.
As human beings our capacity for bliss is limited only by our willingness to “empty our cup” again and again. Clearing away the old to make room for the new is an ancient idea that works! And cleansing (five ways to Sunday) is a key part of the Ayurvedic approach to extraordinary living.

What is Ayurveda to health is like what religion is to God. Ayurveda is not only related to disease and its remedies but emphasizes the right and healthy way of living. Since the origin of Ayurveda is said to be from Atharva veda, the philosophy of this health system is based on self discipline and balanced outlook. To understand that Ayurveda is an integral part of India and its culture is to further compare the ethos of Hinduism being –not a religion but a way of life and that of Ayurveda being –not a remedial system but a way of healthy living.
The principles of Ayurveda can be understood by drawing a parallel to a better understood system of present day…Allopathy. The definition of health by WHO is ‘A state of not merely the absence of disease but a sense of well being at a physical, mental, psychological and spiritual level’. The definition of health in Ayurveda is a balance and harmony of all forces acting on the body at the physical, mental, psychological and soul level. While western medicine is of disease and treatment, Ayurveda also includes rules of healthy living and ways of maintaining health. Thus the scope of Ayurveda is wide and encompasses diet, behavior, principles of right living and also of disease and treatment of disease.
The system of Ayurveda looks at a man as a part of nature and the entire cosmos, in contrast to allopathy which looks at a man as an individual. Prevention is preferred to cure in Ayurveda and like in allopathy, prevention is not restricted to immunization to certain diseases but to an entire methodology of right living. The system goes beyond objectivity and merges objectivity with subjectivity. The role of allopathy is indispensable today with superb technological advancement of the understanding of disease and medicine but Ayurveda has an equally indispensable role in maintaining that the roots of health are in the mind and the soul.
