The Power of Ayurvedic Treatment

Published April 1st, 2021 by Om’echaye

No one can argue of the seriousness of diseases and afflictions that cause so much hardship and discomfort such as cancer, diabetes, and arthritis to name a few. While modern medicine has evolved greatly with respect to treating the symptoms of disease and improved pain management, increasingly both doctors and their patients are turning to complementary alternative medicine, such as Ayurveda, to extend treatment approaches

Over the next few editions of this column, we will be exploring the benefits of Ayurvedic treatment, either in combination with other western approaches or as a lifestyle choice intended to balance the factors that contribute to good health

Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity, dates back over 5,000 years and it provides its followers with a lifestyle approach to good health. This ancient therapy has stood the test of time and proven itself nature’s panacea for all ailments of body and mind and is even recognized as effective by the World Health Organization

Ayurveda looks to the five elements that together comprise our Universe: Fire, Water, Air, Space and Earth. These elements are the building blocks to what are called “doshas”, which constitute our individual bio-energy. Collectively the doshas are called: Pitta, Vata and Kapha, and all humans have a unique combination of these doshas. Illness and disease are the result of dosha imbalance and rebalancing one’s doshas is what Ayurvedic treatments are all about

Our upcoming articles will feature more detail on specific conditions, explaining the factors that contribute to the imbalance and the Ayurvedic approach to a holistic healing. Treating imbalance with Ayurveda is performed with natural medicines prepared from leaves, flowers, roots and seeds in a process that resembles culinary art, addressing the root cause of disease to completely remove it without invasive side effects
