The word Ayurveda is a combination of "Ayus"- the span of life and "Veda"- the science of life is the knowledge of association of the body, the senses, the mind and the atma (spirit or the soul). It is an Indian system of natural cure. Ayurveda promotes good health and beauty. It cures by eliminating the fundamental causes of diseases. Ayurvedic remedies work by removing toxins from the body.
"The object of Ayurveda", said Susruta the famous physician some 2600 years ago, "is the restoration to health of those who are afflicated with diseases and the preservation of sound health of those who are well." There are no distressing side effects and it has, today, become an internationally acclaimed form of healing, rejuvenation and healthy living.
The Science Of Life
Ayurveda, with its tridosha or three humours system, is able to provide a complete understanding of the cause of health in terms of a metabolic balance. Disease is simply understood as an imbalance between the nerve energy (vata), catabolic fire energy (pita) and anabolic nutritive energy (kapha). Imbalance of the tridoshas leads not only to impaired health, but also to an impaired mental condition, because the mind's health is dependent on the body's health. Ayurvedic treatments are person specific rather than disorder specific. The age of the patient, the climate in which he lives, his cultural and social surroundings, and his bodily constitution, need to be taken into account before offering a prognosis. Touch, inspection, and interrogation are the main tools of diagnosis. Ayurvedic treatment is carried out the internal and external use of herbal medicine in a coordinated or integrated manner, as well as through surgery. Ayurveda's healing regimens have been adapted and refined by people all over the world.
Beauty Care ( Pancha karma Therapy )
In Ayurveda, health promotion, beauty management and healing rely on freeing the body of ama (toxic material resulting from incomplete digestion ), restoring sound cellular nutrition, facilitating complete elimination and re-establishing the balance of the doshas. A faster and deeper cleansing and re-balancing can be accomplished by using Ayurveda's traditional rejuvenation therapy. Commonly called Panch Karma, Ayurvedic rejuvenation therapy is the oldest scientific system for detoxification and re-nutrifying the body.
Although an ancient system, it is commonly regarded as one of the most through available, achieving transformative results at all levels. The combination of oleation massage, full body steam and flour scrub beautifies the skin making it soft, smooth and well-toned. While the specific cleansing therapies and rejuvenative tonics work on the internal body, they strengthen the foundations of outer beauty and promote strength of character.
