The ancient Indian science of Ayurveda has several wellness advantages.
While the ancient science of Ayurveda has been in existence for thousands of years, it has recently seen a rise in popularity as a form of alternative medicine as its restorative and healing powers have been recognised. At its most basic level, Ayurveda looks for flaws in each individual’s dosha (constitution) and seeks to balance these flaws by healing both the mind and body.
Ayurvedic treatments have multiple advantages. Here are just a few:
They’re individual specific. Since Ayurveda works with dosha, your treatment is customised according to which dosha you fall into–vata, pitta or kapha. For example, individuals of the vata dosha are more prone to hormonal imbalances and digestive conditions, individuals of the pitta dosha have tendencies toward skin conditions and individuals of the kapha dosha are more likely to suffer from cancer and diabetes. Based on your dosha, an Ayurvedic plan can be designed for you to prevent the ailments you are most prone toward.
They’re holistic. Ayurvedic treatments are designed to not only treat the affected part of the body, but to work towards the wellness of the entire body as a whole. The treatments aim to detoxify and purify the entire body and maintain an equal balance of mind, body and spirit.
They’re non-invasive. Ayurvedic treatments use naturally occurring herbs and oils, eliminating the harmful effects of engineered chemicals. They rely on gentle methods such as exercise, diet, yoga and massages rather than invasive procedures such as surgery or drug treatments.
They’re both preventative and curative. Ayurveda works to not only cure existing ailments, but also makes you more immune to future illnesses by providing treatments that maintain both emotional and physical stability, cleanse the body of toxins and relax the mind from stress factors
