What is Ayurveda
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda tells an untold story about life. Ayurveda goes back way beyond this birth and explains to us how we humans have come into form. Ayurveda conclusively, shares how and why we live and act the way we do.
This life knowledge comes from an ancient Indian continent. However Ayurveda is not restricted to India, it is universal. It is not a man made theory, it is the truth of our evolution and it came directly from the universe. Therefore it can be applied to our lives anywhere in the world.
Ayurveda is a traditional medical system that can support us in many ways. It was a few thousand years ago that the wise man realized our interwoven relationship with nature. Once you read the section on ‘nature and us” you will see for yourself how entwined we are with Mother Nature.
Ayurveda has a different approach than modern medicine. Ayurveda takes the holistic approach to life. It looks at the emotional, physical and mental strengths and weaknesses of the individual and offers solutions to bring more harmony into one's life circumstances. The medicine box in Ayurveda is as big as the ocean itself.
Foods take a major role in Ayurveda. Everything we eat creates a dramatic effect on our bodies and minds. We literally are a walking living produce of the food we eat. So we need to become conscious about our food choices. As one food can be medicine for one and the same food and be poison in another.
In Ayurveda there are no limits to medicine. Medicine is everywhere. Medicine is in the very sound, breath, sight, taste and smells found throughout our environment. What we take in through our senses organs will determine how we will think and feel in the future.
In the treatment of diseases, various types of herbs, specific diets and treatments can be administered. However, Ayurveda aims to help us prevent illness from happening. It is completely geared to empower us to take care of our own health. For so long we have been dominated by the allopathic system of medicine. So we have forgotten how intelligent the body is at healing itself. Sometimes we need just time and space.
The approach of modern medicine is dynamic. They use fast acting powerful drugs which are so effective in accident and emergency cases and when people are experiencing moderate to severe kinds of suffering. But in general our society has become over dependent on the use of pharmaceutical drugs. We use them daily, to take away our pains. The fact is that pharmaceutical medicine can have a therapeutic effect, in that they do take away our pains, but they also steal away our opportunities to have good health and happiness.
The good news is we can use all medical traditions at the same time. As Ayurveda is a natural medicine, the best approach is slow and gentle, so it can support allopathic medicine. There are many simple ways to bring nourishment to our lives. We can start to harmonize with our very breath. This is an internal cleansing process that helps us to let go of the old cobwebs.
Most beautifully Ayurveda brings in the light. When we have light, we can see what is hiding away. Light glows up the dark. Light helps us look at life in a different way. Most essentially Ayurveda gives us a clear understanding of why we are all different. This view point can encourage us to accept and develop understanding and compassion for the vast differences between our families, friends and social environments. Ultimately we all have choices in life and if we can adjust or widen our perception and our focus, we can profoundly change the direction of our lives.
