Ayurveda

History

Ayurveda represents a monumental contribution of India to the world. As the name suggests, Ayurveda (ayuh: life, veda: knowledge) is an organized body of knowledge about a healthy lifestyle, a well-coded system of art and science of health and healing.

We do not know the beginning of Ayurveda’s becoming, is just more than 3000 years of running histrory.

Ayurveda is revealed by the Brahmi, the ancient seers, whose insights and visions are compiled in the Vedas, the earliest versions of recorded knowledge. The six systems of Indian philosophy – Nyaya, Vaiseshika, Sankhya, Yoga, Mimamsa and Vendanta acknowledged the authority of the Vedas. Of the four Vedas, Atharvaveda contain references to the most intimate references about knowledge and medical practice. Ayurveda is therefore regarded as an auxiliary arm (Upavedas) of Atharvaveda. Ayurveda is dynamic at the operational level, therefore it can be advanced as a system of medicine in accordance with the changing trends and needs of human life, perceiving humans as part of nature, macro and microcosm.

Health is defined as a state in which the dynamic equilibrium is maintained, then the metabolism, body, soul, mind and senses reach a sublime stand. This definition fully agrees with the integral vision of health provided by the WHO, which recognizes it as a medical science.

The structural and functional unit of the human body are composed of five basic elements known as Panchabhutas: earth, water, fire, air and space. Each of them has an influence on the human physique.For example, any opening of the body, the ears and the blanks and internal sounds of the body are all belonging to the element of space. The element of fire is related with the eyes, body heat, digestive activity, feelings of anger and value. The recognition of these elements of the human body has deep implications for the practice of medical science. Diseases are manifestations of disturbance of equilibrium of Dosha, the increase or decrease of this one creates a deficit of a morbid pre-condition of the body. This concept leads to the general idea that there is nothing in the world which can not be used by the mother nature

Ayurveda takes into consideration the administration of natural medicines, the prescription of the treatment being realized according each subject; it is applied after examining each patient. To acquire this skill and competence you need a deep and complex knowledge of the human anatomy and physiology, the disease process, the medical and surgery treatment, the psychiatry, the preventive medicine, the medical ethics, the medical stuff and pharmacology. The content of Ayurveda embraces all spheres separately, approaching a holistic view of each human subject.

Benefits

For five thousand years, India and China have used a wide variety of plants in order to treat almost all human diseases. 3,000,000 of plants are known, while others are still unknown.

Why this natural art of healing survive over millennial? Because it really works!

Before complying with the guidelines of Panchakarma treatment is necessary to know the answer of two important questions:


How does our body work?

There are 30.000 genes in our body. The collective interactions of these genes give life and their normal function keeps us healthy. The function of the gene is individual but it works collectively.

The genes are activated and deactivated with age, ceasing to produce proteins during the aging process: some of them remain active, others are turned off.

Our genes are sensitive to environmental pollution, exposure to radiation, chemicals and viruses which alter their normal functions, starting this way the process of genetic mutation. The mutated gene produces an altered protein, which makes us ill, therefore we can state that all diseases have a genetic origin. The protein produced by the mutated gene has no ability to bind and no receptors and to bind to, floating this way in our system and is expelled from the body.


How Ayurveda herbal therapy can heal our body?

The plants develop a variety of toxins as a protection against insects or parasites and these ones have a phenomenal ability to bind to our genes. They can substitute to the gene, facilitating healing. The re-activated gene produce the protein flowing again in our blood until it will not enter into contact with the receptor.

This explains the physiology of Panchakarma and its useful function. Massages and purification remove all debris / free radicals expelling them through our skin. The open cells which receive these herbal potions can bring a healthy well-being and a metabolic balance. Body temperature plays an important role in absorption of medicinal oils into the body. One can say that Ayurveda contributes and restores a bioenergetic balance to "Vata, Pitta and Kapha".

Today, the OMS recognizes this therapeutic discipline as an alternative and complementary medicine to allopathic one!

Even from the ancient times men and women took care of the skin and facial beauty. It was part of a lifestyle to pay attention to the body for both reasons: health and beauty.

Knowing the Prakriti (own psycho-physical-mental structure), the sportive can see how the chosen discipline is in accordance with his natural predisposition. This way it can be evaluated the level of excellence the sportive could aspire.

The human passion for medicinal herbs dates from high ancient times. Often the human and animal survival was based of the use of the elements from the vegetable world.

Plants/herbs have played an important role within drug therapy during the Vedic period in India.

The Vedic literature often indicates the helpfulness of single herbs also for the use of the most common disturbs. Till nowadays, researchers and scientists have conducted numerous scientific studies recognizing the importance of plants / herbs in the quality of healing.

Like the universe and its living beings, even herbs/plants are composed of the five elements as well: earth, water, fire, wind and space. Ayurveda of the plants/herbs considers and assigns quality (gunas), power (virya) and action (prabhava).

The unity of these factors within drugs (plants, roots, herbs, flowers, berries, etc.) -interconnected and interdependent - represents the different aspects of the five elements, which are beneficial to all living beings.

All the values contained by these plants/herbs are enhanced by varied and long preparation’s procedures for several times, as well as by various methods of processing. The Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia digested in the stomach produces the desired effects without contraindications, restoring the metabolism and health.

The names of preparations take the name of the most important ingredients or the names of the wise Brahmins: Caraka, Susruta and Vãgbhata who discovered and described the formulas of the compounds preparations mentioned in the Vedic texts.

The herbs are classified on the basis of a wide criterion of qualitative knowledge of every part of the plant / herb, such as the quality and properties of the final product for the benefit of the disturbed Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha):


  • drugs are scientifically researched
  • there are common and non-toxic plants/herbs
  • tolerable for the body
  • digestible and palatable
  • easy to administer and effective in minimum dosage
  • have vigorous therapeutic properties
  • produce an immediate effect
  • preserved for a long time
  • do not produce reeks

"Everything should be consider with moderation, including moderation"
