Most of you must have come across the word, 'Ayurveda' sometime in your life, specially if you're an Indian. "It's a traditional Hindu System of Medicine, which is based on the Idea of balance in the bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment and yogic breathing." -says Google.
If you dig deeper, you'll learn that, Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which, when translated, means -The knowledge of Life.
How it started
The knowledge of Ayurveda was passed on orally through a lineage of sages in India until it was collated into text more than five thousand years ago. Ayurveda categorizes the different constitutions into three different doshas:
The dosha affects not just the shape of one’s body but also bodily tendencies (like food preferences and digestion), and the temperament of one’s mind and emotions.
How is it Different
This is the most exciting part, because we highly believe in the Modern Medicine, and this might just change that. When you visit your doctor for some sort of sickness, what does he do? He provides you with a subscription of drugs, morning and evening, for 5 days, at least. These drugs will make you feel better but not solve the root cause of the problem. How many of you catch a cold every winters? How many times have you visited the doctor or taken medicines for the same infections repeatedly? Now that's because the root cause still exists. If you treat the rotten branch but don't find out the insect that's harming your plants, then they will catch the infection again.
Ayurveda is all about the root cause of your problem. A vedic will find the root cause of your problem, be it a deficiency in your body or one of your bad eating habits, and fix that all through 100% Natural herbs. Nature is better than any other medicine/drugs.
Now you think for yourself, do you want to just keep treating the problem or totally uproot it from your body? It's all up to you. If you decide to know more about how to practice Ayurveda in your daily life, stay tuned. I am going to post about Ayurveda and it's daily practices which make your skin glow and keep you fit!
