Ayurvedic medicine has a rich history. It was recorded in Sanskrit, in the four sacred texts called the Vedas: the Rig Veda ,Yajur Veda, Sam Veda, and Atharva Veda . It continues to be one of the worlds most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential.

Ayurveda is very different from traditional allopathy or other forms of modern medicines and this is why it is deemed to be extremely effective. Below are a few key differentiators of Ayurveda:

  1. All natural approach - Going back to one’s roots and a more natural approach to life is a growing trend. Ayurveda embodies this as it focuses on a natural way of curing ailments and hence, has no long term side effects whatsoever (which is not the case in Western medicine).
  2. Diagnosing the patient, not just the symptoms- The key factor involved in Ayurvedic treatment is the long term benefits of the medicine. As opposed to just treating the disease, the practice of Ayurveda seeks to cleanse the body and heal in a way that reduces the likelihood of the problem recurring in the future. An interaction with an Ayurvedic doctor and an understanding of the “dosha test” or “Naadi pariksha” is a testament to the holistic approach in Ayurveda.
  3. Change in lifestyle - Several chronic diseases occur due to an unhealthy lifestyle, Ayurveda represents more than just medication, but a holistic view of a healthy lifestyle. Ayurvedic doctors “prescribe” lifestyle changes like yoga and meditation as a part of one’s treatment more often than not.
  4. Overall Balance - The benefit of Ayurveda is that it focuses on individualized treatment and improving the entire body, internally and externally. When someone has emotional stress or health issues, physical activity, nutrition, and spiritual connection can re-calibrate your body and promote balance. Ayurveda is all about balancing the elements (dosha) in one’s body and as a science constantly endeavours to bring imbalances back in check.
  5. The definition of health by WHO is ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’ This is the very approach that Ayurveda has been following for the last 5000 years. To improve one’s lifestyle, rather than just curing disease.
