The literal meaning of the word Ayurveda is “Science of Life”. Ayurveda traces its roots to India of 3000 BC. Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of natural medicines that treats the body and mind as a whole. Ayurveda treat the causes of the disease rather than the symptoms without creating any side effects. Ayurvedic principles of health and healing revolve around the concept of 3 doshas Vata, Pitta & Kapha. These are the physiological or physic-chemical vital forces in the body. Balance of Vata, Pitta & Kapha provides health and imbalance leads to diseases.
In therapeutically effective doses, Ayurveda medicines are not only free from side effects, but they generally produce positive side benefits.
After a detailed consultation, an Ayurveda doctor suggests a treatment program which includes internal medication, external therapies, dietary and lifestyle modification for healing.
The art of Mantra’s Ayurveda consultation through interrogation, inspection, palpation, pulse diagnosis procedures; does not merely identify the symptoms of a disease but is designed to find out the root cause and the pathology.
Along with the disease, the diseased also should be thoroughly assessed. Our practitioners use most modern diagnostic tools of laboratory investigations and imaging technologies for a pin-point diagnosis.
Though we all have Vata-Pitta-Kapha, each of us possesses them in different proportions. This account for our difference in appearance, behavioral pattern, emotional tendencies, likes, dislikes etc.
The basic knowledge of the body type helps one to determine the most auspicious lifestyle that will ensure wellness and longevity: appropriate foods, herbs, exercise regimes, medicines, therapies, and even suitable professions. The constitution of an individual is determined before birth itself and it will not change entire life.
