From the cosmos to the smallest of microorganisms, Nature is where you will find all the answers. And guess what? Our ancestors have successfully decoded some of the greatest mysteries hidden in nature, to unlock its secrets through the science of Ayurveda. We all know that this science originated in the east, but can you imagine how ancient it is? The origin of Ayurveda finds its mention in Atharva Veda, which dates back to almost the 2nd Century BC. The principles of Ayurveda are based on human behaviour and innate causes that remain unchanged throughout time, which makes it the most relevant healing system even in today’s fast-paced, connected, and digitized world.

Ayurveda – The panacea for the modern world

Everyone in today’s times seeks better health and longevity with a holistic approach. So, how can one achieve this? The answer lies in the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda – an extremely effective healing system that combines physical, psychological, and spiritual health. It works on the basic principle of identifying the root cause of the disease and working towards its total eradication. It tries to enhance the body’s inherent capability to fight disease and restore good health and happiness. Ayurvedic treatment is not only about treating physical ailments, but also about achieving better health and happiness. Ayurveda can help cure physical illnesses and address various mental health issues.

• The Building Blocks of Ayurveda

Did you know that your unique physical and mental characteristics are determined by the proportion of three doshas - Vata, Kapha, and Pitta - in your body? One of the doshas is usually more dominant than the others. A person’s dosha (a type of bodily humor) determines their personality and health. The doshas are a combination of the five elements that make the earth – Aakash (space), Jala (water), Prithvi (earth), Teja (fire), and Vayu (air).

2. It helps to repair the body parts and tissues that may have been impacted due to the disease and the corresponding imbalance caused.

3. Ayurveda connects people and their health to the basic elements in the universe and accordingly classifies people into three types of doshas. It accords great importance to the universe and the five key elements that are the building blocks of living organisms.

4. It ensures a great focus on mental health and medical subjects such as genetics, diet, gynaecology, physiology, and cosmology. It also includes learnings from related subjects such as botany, cultivation, personal hygiene, and chemistry.

What is Ayurveda?

Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). It describes the healthy and unhealthy state of life (mind and body) and describes the methods of balancing unhealthy conditions. Ayurveda focuses on the wellness of every person as a whole. Since the constitution differs from person to person, the wellness therapies also differ and are unique to every individual.

What is Naturopathy?

Human beings have remarkable recuperative powers that can heal the body on its own without external chemical or surgical interference, which simply suppresses symptoms but does not heal nor remove the root cause of the disease. Naturopathy seeks to heal the body by promoting its own internal processes. Naturopathy gives importance to internal hygienic conditions using healing therapies such as Dietetics, Hydrotherapy, Mud therapy, Reflexology, and Massage, among others.
