Ayurveda improves health by creating a balance between body, mind and soul. Ayurveda not only has treatment but it teaches such a way of living, which makes life long and happy. According to Ayurveda, no disease can come to you by balancing the three basic elements like Vata, Pitta and Kapha in the body. But when their balance deteriorates, the disease starts dominating the body and in Ayurveda the balance of these three elements is made. Also, in Ayurveda, the emphasis is on developing immunity so that there is no disease of any kind. Ayurveda uses herbal remedies, home remedies, Ayurvedic medicines, dietary modification, massage and meditation to treat various diseases.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine in the Indian subcontinent. It is believed that this system originated in India 5000 years ago. The word Ayurveda is made up of two Sanskrit words ‘Ayush’ which means life and ‘Veda’ which means ‘science’, hence it literally means ‘science of life’. Unlike other medicinal systems, Ayurveda focuses more on healthy lifestyle rather than treatment of diseases. The main concept of Ayurveda is that it makes the process of healing individual.
According to Ayurveda, the human body is composed of four basic elements – dosha, metal, feces and fire. These basics of the body have great importance in Ayurveda. These are called ‘basic principles’ or basic principles of Ayurvedic treatment.
The three important principles of doshas are vata, bile, and phlegm, which together regulate and regulate catabolic and anabolic metabolism. The main function of these three doshas is to carry the byproduct of digested foods throughout the body, which helps in the formation of body tissues. Any defect in these defects causes the disease.
One can define metal as the one that supports the body. There are seven tissue systems in the body. They are juice, blood, flesh, fattening, bone, marrow and Venus which represent plasma, blood, adipose tissue, bone, bone marrow and semen respectively. Metals provide only basic nutrition to the body. And it helps in the development and structure of the brain.
Mal means waste product or dirt. It is the third in the trio of the body i.e. doshas and metal. There are three main types of feces, such as feces, urine, and sweating. Feces are mainly waste products of the body, so proper maintenance of their body is necessary for maintaining proper health of the person. There are two main aspects of the stool i.e. mal and kitta. Sewage is all about the waste products of the body while kitta is all about the waste products of metals.
All types of metabolism and digestive activity of the body are done with the help of the body’s biological fire called Agni. Agni can be termed as an enzyme present in the alimentary canal, liver and tissue cells.
Body composition (cam)
Life in Ayurveda is conceived as the union of body, senses, mind and soul. The living person is a group of three dehādravas (vata, pitta and kapha), seven basic tissues (rasa, blood, flesh, fattening, bone, marrow and Venus) and body waste products such as feces, urine, and sweat. Thus the total body mold includes the dehumidification, tissue and body waste products. The growth and decay of this bodily mold and its components revolve around food that is processed into the dehumids, tissues, and waste. Food intake, its digestion, absorption, assimilation and metabolism have an interaction in health and disease which are affected to a large extent by the psychological system and bio-fire (fire).
According to Ayurveda, all the things in the universe including the human body are made up of the five basic elements (panchamahabhutas) i.e. earth, water, fire, air and vacuum (sky). A balanced compaction of these elements is required in different proportions for the requirements of the physical mold and its parts and for different structures and functions.The growth and development of the physical mold depends on its nutrition. Food in turn is made up of the above five elements, which substitute and nurture similar elements in the body after the action of bio fire. Body tissues are structural while dehādravas are physical entities derived from various permutations and combinations of panchamahabhutas.
Health and illness
Health or disease depends on whether there is a balanced or unbalanced state of self, with mutual balance between the various components of the body’s mold. Both internal and external factors can lead to disease by disturbing the natural balance. This loss of balance can result from unwary diet, undesirable habits and non-adherence to healthy living rules. Seasonal abnormalities, improper exercise or incorrect application of senses and inconsistent functioning of body and mind can also result in disturbances in the existing normal balance. Treatment includes dietary regulation, improvement in life routine and behavior, use of medicines and restoring body-mind balance by adopting Panchakarma and chemotherapy.
Diagnosis in Ayurveda is always made holistically in the patient. The physician carefully notes the patient’s internal physical characteristics and mental disposition. The other factors, such as the affected physical tissue, dehumidia, the place where the disease is located, the patient’s resistance and vitality, his daily routine, dietary habits, severity of clinical conditions, digestive conditions and his personal, socioeconomic and environmental status Also studies the details of. Diagnosis also includes the following tests:
- General physical examination
- Pulse test
- urine test
- Stool test
- Tongue and eye test
- Skin and ear skin testing including touch and hearing functions
The basic medical view is that the right treatment is the only one that provides health, and the person who makes us healthy is the best doctor. It summarizes the main objectives of Ayurveda i.e. maintenance and promotion of health, prevention of disease and cure of disease.
Treatment of the disease includes avoiding the factors of imbalance of the body mold or any of its components by Panchakarma procedures and medicines, suitable diet to strengthen the body system to restore physical balance and reduce the recurrence of the disease in future. , Using the activity.
Treatment measures usually include medications, specific diets and prescribed routines of activities. These three measures are used in two ways. In an approach to treatment, the three measures counteract the underlying factors and various manifestations of the disease. In the second approach, these three measures of medicine, diet, and activity are targeted to have the same effect as the root factors of the disease and the disease process. These two types of therapeutic approaches are known as antagonistic and antagonistic treatments, respectively.
Four things are necessary for successful operation of treatment. These are:
- The doctor
- Nursing personnel
The doctor comes first in order of importance. He should have technical skills, scientific knowledge, purity and understanding of human beings. The physician should use his knowledge with humility, intelligence and in the service of humanity. Food and medicines come forward in order of importance. They should be of high quality, have wide application and should be grown and processed according to approved procedures and should be adequately available. The third component of every successful treatment is the role of nursing personnel who must have a good knowledge of nursing, know their art skills and be affectionate, sympathetic, intelligent, clean and clean and resourceful. The fourth component is the patient himself who must be supportive and obedient to follow the instruction of the physician, be able to describe diseases and whatever is necessary for treatment.
Ayurveda has developed a very detailed analytical description of the stages of events and their occurrence as the factors of disease begin before their final manifestation. This gives this system an additional benefit of knowing the possible onset of the disease long before the latent symptoms are evident. It enhances its preventive role by taking appropriate and effective steps in advance of this method of therapy to prevent further progress in pathogenesis by taking appropriate remedial steps to curb the disease at an early stage of onset.
Type of treatment
Treatment of the disease can be broadly classified as:
Purification therapy (purification treatment)
Refinement treatment focuses on removing the causative factors of somatic and psychiatric diseases. The process involves internal and external purification. Common treatments include panchakarma (drug-induced vomiting, purgation, oil enema, decoction enema, and nasal administration), pre-panchakarma procedures (external and internal healing and induced sweating). Panchakarma treatment focuses on metabolic management. It provides essential purifying effects in addition to providing therapeutic benefits. This treatment is particularly useful in neurological disorders, musculoskeletal disease conditions, certain vascular or neuro-vascular conditions, respiratory diseases, metabolic and degenerative disorders.
Quenching Treatment (Palliative Treatment)
Mitigation therapy involves suppression of impaired dehradrava (doshas). The process by which the deteriorated dehradrava returns to normalcy without creating an imbalance in other dehradrava is known as mitigation. This treatment is achieved by taking starvation, digestives, exercise, and taking incense and fresh air. In this form of treatment, palliative and sleeping medicine are used.
Dietary regimen (Suggestion of diet and activities)
Dietary regime includes indicators and indicators of diet, activity, signs and emotional state. This is done with a view to increasing the effectiveness of remedial measures and obstructing the pathological processes. The emphasis is on encouraging fire and optimizing digestion and assimilation of food, with the aim of ensuring the strength of tissues on things not to be done and not done.
Diagnostic changes (avoidance of factors that cause and promote disease)
Diagnosis change is to avoid known disease factors in the patient’s diet and lifestyle. It also includes avoiding factors that exacerbate or exacerbate the disease.
Satvavajaya deals mainly with the field of mental disturbances. It involves the mind’s control of imperfect things and developing courage, memory and concentration. The study of psychology and psychiatry in Ayurveda has been developed extensively and there is a wide range of approaches in the treatment of mental disorders.
Chemotherapy (use of immunity catalysts and rejuvenation drugs)
Chemotherapy is concerned with promoting strength and vitality. The benefits of this treatment are credited with promoting the integrity of the body’s mold, boosting memory, intelligence, immunity against disease, preservation of puberty, brightness, color and maintenance of optimal strength of body and senses. Chemotherapy plays a role in preventing premature degradation of body tissues and promoting a person’s overall health content.
Diet and Ayurvedic Treatment
Regulation of diet has great importance in Ayurveda as medicine. This is because in it the human body is understood as a product of food. A person’s mental and spiritual development as well as his nature is influenced by the quality of food he takes. In the human body, food is first converted into cal or juice and then further processes include its conversion into blood, muscle, fat, bone, bone marrow, reproductive elements and ojas. Thus, food is fundamental to all metabolic changes and activities of life. Lack of nutrients in food or improper alteration of food results in various types of disease conditions.
