Let’s Define What Ayurveda Is –
Thousands of years ago, before modern medicine and peer-reviewed journals, a holistic form of wellness developed in India. It was called “Ayurveda” – defined as a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent. Globalized and modernized practices derived from Ayurveda traditions are a type of complementary or alternative medicine. (Source: Wikipedia)
However, taking a closer look at this ancient and traditional approach you may find that Ayurveda is more than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential. (Source: Chopra.com)
Lost? Let’s break it down simply – It can be understood in 3 easy principles;
- Health and wellness are a balance of mind and body,
- Each person is different, and
- Our environment has profound impacts on our health.
Ayurveda names three elemental substances, the doshas (called Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and states that a balance of the doshas results in health, while imbalance results in disease.
One Ayurvedic view is that the doshas are balanced when they are equal to each other, while another view is that each human possesses a unique combination of the doshas which define this person’s temperament and characteristics. Good example of this is Meditation – a common practice in the Ayurveda System used to calm one’s mind and body, balancing one’s temperament and characteristics. Scientific researchers have shown in clinical settings that mindfulness meditation can reduce both anxiety and depression, as well as pain. The best example of how powerful meditation can be was recently found in the story of the Thai Cave Rescue – where a coach used Buddhist meditation to keep 12 Thai boys alive and calm, while trapped in a cave for more than 10 days with limited food or water before they were finally discovered and rescued.
In both cases – Ayurveda says that each person should modulate their behavior or environment to increase or decrease the doshas and maintain their natural state hence reaping good health and fighting off imbalances which lead to fear, distress, or even disease in one’s body.
So Ayurvedic Remedies Come From the Earth? YES.
Plant-based treatments are often used in Ayurveda to achieve such balance in the mind and body. These plants can may be derived from roots, leaves, fruits, bark, or seeds such as cardamom and cinnamon. Ayurvedic herbs are used for many reasons: to maintain overall health; to boost immunity; support mental clarity and focus; to calm the nerves; to improve digestion; to protect the body from toxins and support the detoxification process; and to support innate healing processes. According to Holistic Primary Care, there’s an idea in Ayurveda that, “What heals, also prevents.” Herbs effective in treating specific conditions can also serve as a “food,” providing targeted nourishment to specific physiological systems and processes. For example, Turmeric (Curcuma longa), popularized for its anti-inflammatory properties, can also be eaten as a culinary spice by people looking to proactively prevent disease and maintain good health.
MODERN AYURVEDA IS HERE.
Today, Ayurveda—known as a complementary health approach in the United States—is thought to be one of the world’s oldest medicinal systems. And many of its broader teachings (the importance of a healthy diet, the power of deep sleep and meditation, tuning in to the body’s natural rhythm) are just starting to be supported by those peer-reviewed journals and modern-day doctors.
In October of 2017, the Nobel Prize went to scientists studying circadian rhythm, discovering how “plants, animals, and humans adapt their biological rhythm so that it is synchronized with the Earth’s revolutions.” True practitioners of Ayurveda benefit from understanding the balance of their doshas (or energies that make us up) and zero in on specific teachings of the health system which include powerful plant based remedies utilizing Ayurvedic herbs.
Modern medicine is a miracle and there’s no denying the effectiveness it has in treating some of the world’s worst diseases. However, today many drugs used in modern medicine are powerful and quite often, the risks with these drugs are also very high. For some – it’s TOO high. Why? Well, you really don’t know how your body will respond to the drug till you take it. Sometimes side effects such as grogginess can make it difficult for you to carry out your daily activities or you may experience more adverse effects. What’s great about Ayurveda approaches is that it addresses the huge diversity among patients, taking into account unique individual habits, metabolism and personality types. Since the ingredients used are herbal and plant-based type remedies, not only are your chances of side effects reduced, but the ingredients often have added benefits that improve your overall health. As a result, in terms of treatment, you get remedies that are more suited to the individual needs of your body and everyday condition you may be suffering from. It’s truly an alternative to modern medicine, and it’s starting to trend again…
