Ayurveda or "science of life" is one of the oldest forms of holistic medicine in the world, dating back more than 4,000 years in India. It was originally an oral tradition, transmitted from master to disciple, who learned and worked alongside him. The oldest written codification of Ayurvedic principles is found in the Rig Veda, India's oldest knowledge text (1200 BC).
The aim of Ayurvedic medicine is the prevention and maintenance of health, although diseases are also treated, based on a correct diagnosis through observation, anamnesis and examination.
The word ayurveda derives from the Sanskrit words ayus (life) and veda (knowledge). It is a holistic system that believes in restoring the natural balance of body, mind and spirit. This holistic science is based on the idea that each person has a unique balance of three doshas, or energies (vata, pitta and kapha). This combination is determined at the moment of conception and is called the pakruti. When these energies are in balance, the person is healthy and happy. When they are out of balance, the person can become ill.
The knowledge of our own constitution is one of the pillars of Ayurveda as it enables us to design and implement balance plans to improve our quality of life.
This traditional Indian medicine considers the whole person, not just the symptoms of a disease. Ayurvedic treatments are designed to restore the balance of the doshas and regain health and include:
- Dietary changes
- Lifestyle and activity adjustments
- Herbal supplementation
- Incorporation of routines such as yoga, meditation, breathing exercises or pranayamas, ayurvedic massage
cleansing or purification
- Processes such as panchakarma...
In India, an Ayurvedic physician studies a minimum of 5 years to obtain a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery. In the West, Ayurveda is recognized as a complementary and alternative health system by national health institutes, and is beginning to take root in several institutions of higher education.
