Ayurveda is a long established technique of medicine. The name Ayurveda translates to science of life, Ayur means life and Veda means science. It originated in India and has been around for over five thousand years. The historical roots and medical scripts are as old as the Indus Valley Civilization. You can also find the best Ayurvedic treatment centre in India. It is a science to bring the body back into balance; so that it can self heal itself.

Ayurveda is complementary medicine. Treatments in this method of medicine are based around herbal compounds, metals and minerals. It has been called a pseudoscience over the years. Ayurvedic doctors consider the physical self, mental existence and personality as a module, and that each element of existence can influence the other.

According to Ayurveda, the body is made up mainly of tissues, waste products and doshas. Doshas are nothing but energy forces in your body, these doshas are responsible for your body to function in balance.

There are three main Doshas called the Tridoshas:

  • Vata Dosha: Responsible for all inward and outward movements in the body; including feces, urine, semen, and sweat. It also provides assistance with metabolism, and various other movements, both voluntary and involuntary, such as respiration, heart beat and other physical movements. The Vata Dosha communicates all input from the different sensory organs to the brain.
  • Pitta Dosha: It is associated with heat. Pitta Dosha is responsible for all transformation in the body. Pitta Dosha governs all metabolism, including digestion of food, maintaining body temperature,vision, appetite, comprehension of information, bravery, and complexion and texture of skin.
  • Kapha Dosha: The heaviest of the three Doshas, Kapha Dosha provides strength and stability to the body. It is also responsible for mass and structure in the body. Stability is one of the things Kapha Dosha is responsible for, stability of both mind and body. The last most important thing that Kapha Dosha looks after is fertility, to make sure that the reproduced offspring is healthy.

Ayurveda has 8 main components, or studies, that look after various parts of the functioning of the human body.

  • Kāyacikitsā: General body medicines
  • Kaumāra-bhṛtya: Medicine for Children; Pediatrics
  • Śalyatantra: Surgery and Removal of alien objects from the body.
  • Śālākyatantra: ENT Treatments.
  • Bhūtavidyā: Subjugation of spirits possessing a body.
  • Agadatantra: toxicology
  • Rasāyanatan: Tonics for restoring and increasing lifespan, intellect and strength
  • Vājīkaraṇatantra: Treatment for increasing the vigor of sexual pleasure

Ayurveda is said to cure, treat and retard the effects of various threatening ailments! Some of which are;

  1. Alzheimer’s disease, a type of dementia that causes memory loss, problems with behavior and thinking.
  2. Anxiety and Depression, which can affect your daily life by making you worried and fearful all the time.
  3. Asthma is a problem related to breathing.
  4. Cancer is a set of diseases that cause abnormal cell growth in the body.
  5. Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease.
  6. High blood pressure and cholesterol
  7. Premenstrual Syndrome and Menstrual cramps

Ayurveda has established itself since prehistoric times and has now branched into several different types of complementary treatment. It is considered very effective around the entire Indian subcontinent and even internationally in recent years. Ayurveda is said to provide balance to your body with the help of diets, medication and physical and mental exercise. Ayurveda hence concludes exactly why a certain individual will react differently to the same set of medicinal procedures than another. Moreover you can find the best Ayurvedic treatment centres in India, so you really do not have to go anywhere else.
