INTRODUCTION TO AYURVEDA
Ayurveda is the oldest system of medicine more than 5000 year old,hence it is the oldest system of medicine.
It has 2 words Ayur and Veda …Ayur means life and Veda means Science
Ayurveda means Science of life
An Ayurvedic approach to a person is holistic and not symptomatic
If there is a health problem then there shall be a analysis of the root cause of the problem with pulse diagnosis and consultation and then the conclusion of diagnosis made which depends on different factors like body type,imbalances,heriditary factors…etc,Normally it is recommended to undergo Ayurveda therapies so that the toxins do not settle down and cause diseases in our body. Panchakarma is one of the best detox cleansing method which is the oldest time tested procedure ,hence it is a very important procedure in todays stressful modern world.
Then there shall be the healing to remove the root cause by panchakarma or detox processes and then treat the body mind and soul with herbs.Hence Ayurvedic approach is very unique and specific to the individual and not generalised.The fundamental concept is that this body has come from the 5 elements and goes back to the 5 elements .Each individual has a certain order of the 5 elements which is specific to him and that is called the body type of the person.
It is important to know your body type with pulse diagnosis and understand the individuals physical and energetic makeup ,then Ayurveda therapies can be applied intelligently with oils and Ayurvedic preparations suitable to that particular body type.Later as a followup the person can try to lead a healthy life being aware of his diet lifestyle and habits which suit his body type and eliminate the things which don't suit his body type.
Ayurveda is the 5000 year old ancient indian science with fundamentals on 5 elements and their balance as health and imbalance leading to ill health.
Each one of us are born with the 3 doshas or humours vata pitta and kapha vata has air and space element,pitta has fire and water element and kapha has water and earth element. The ruling element in vata is air in pitta is fire and in kasha is water ,hence it becomes very important to know your body type according to Ayurveda so as to analyse the imbalances and plan the suitable panchakarma treatments Shodhana chikitsaor herbal medication treatments called Shamana chikitsa. A ayurvedic doctor helps to diagnose your body type and gives you diet and lifestyle advice in order to keep the body type in balance.
Medicines are administered in different forms through different routes to obtain either the shodhana- cleansing or shamana -pacifying effect.
Methods of expelling the accumulated dosha from the body are known as Shodhana treatment. Therapeutic emesis, therapeutic purgation, medicinal enema and nasal medication procedures are enumerated as shodhana procedures as these procedures instigate elimination of the dosha - imbalances when administered.
The therapy that attenuates the morbid dosha without its elimination from the body is known as shamana therapy. Even the shamana treatment does not disturb the other dosha that are in their balanced state.
The Sanskrit term Panchakarma translates five therapeutic procedures. Pancha referes to the number five, and the karma refers to the therapy that brings about homeostasis by way of evacuation of accumulated morbid dosha. These Panchakarma procedures are carried out in three sequential steps. These steps are named as purva karma, pradhana karma, and pashchat karma meaning preliminary procedures, primary procedures and follow up procedures respectively. For the easy, proper and effective administration of the shodhana karma it is essential to prepare the client by specific therapeutic procedures. To set an ideal stage for shodhana the client is subjected to certain upakrama or therapies. These preliminary procedures are referred by the name purva karma. Dipana-pachana, snehana and svedana therapies are enumerated as purva karma. Following the purva karma the client is then subjected to actual shodhana or evacuation procedures that are also the primary procedures which include vamana, virechana, asthapana basti, anuvasana basti and nasya karma. These evacuation procedures are referred as pradhana karma. Shodhana procedures which come under the domain of the apatarpana chikitsa are likely to cause debility in clients. And even there occurs impaired functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. Hence following the pradhana karma, it is required to restore the physical strength as well as optimum functioning of the gastro-intestinal tract. This is achieved by specific dietetic regimen like samsarjana karma or tarpanadi karma. Even complete rest is advised for several days following the shodhana karma. These follow ups of the client in regards to dietary or behavioral regimen is considered as pashchat karma. Thus Panchakarma is carried out in these three sequential steps. To complete the treatment, depending upon the illness the client is then subjected to specific shamana or rasayana chikitsa.
Medicines are administered in different forms through different routes to obtain either the shodhana or shamana effect. Collectively all these medication are known as upakrama. Bheshaja, chikitsa, aushadha are the synonyms of the upakrama. Among these, unique five therapies that render evacuation of dosha are segregated as Panchakarma. Remaining procedures are simply referred by the name upakrama.
