What is Ayurveda
Ayurveda is branch of Atharva Veda. This Vedic science of life is more than 5000 years old medicine revealed by God of Ayurveda Dhanwantri, incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
Ayurveda is the oldest surviving complete medical system in the world. Ayurveda is made of two words “Ayur” means “Life” and “Veda” means “Knowledge”. Hence Ayurveda is just not a system of medicines but “a set of processes to live a healthy life”
The aim of Ayurveda is to maintain a balanced body, mind and spirtAyurveda defines health not only as an absence of disease, but also as a very holistic level of vitality throughout our lives. As a result, the Ayurvedic approach to treating any single aspect of our health begins with taking into account the whole of who we are – body, mind, and spirit. The Ayurvedic tradition recognizes that any of these three aspects of self—body, mind, or spirit can either support or undermine our well-being, making the mind one of three equally influential players in our overall health. Also the whole Ayurvedic treatment is based on PRAKRITI of the person. PRAKRITI is pre-defined combination of three life energies (Vata Pitta Kapha) in human body.
Just like every matter of universe human body is also made up of five basic elements. (Earth,Water, Fire, Air and Ether). These five elements combine in various ratios at the time of birth of an individual to form three bio-energies (Vata-Pita-Kapha) in the body and again combination of these three various bio-energies in one’s body decides PRAKRITI of that individual. The word ‘Prakriti’ means ‘nature’ and this reflects the natural state of human beings at an anatomical, physiological, and psychological level. In Ayurveda, no two people are alike. Every person is born with a definite genetic constitution. Prakriti remains same throughout the lifetime of an individual.
if there is imbalance in Prakriti of an individual, it creates imbalance in body. Ayurvedic treatments are tailored to each person’s unique constitution or Prakriti.
Ayurvedic medicines mainly aims at permanently healing the person and effectively treating the disease.Ayurveda focuses chiefly in the detoxification as a primary part of the treatment and believes that the disease causing factors should be removed. After an Ayurvedic treatment the patient will find progress in their mental, physical and psychological aspects as well.
Atharvan Ayurveda provides its patients with the best appropriate treatment suitable for the patient according to his unique constitution
