  1. AYURVEDIC MEDICINE
  2. INTRODUCTION • People living in India have relied on traditional Ayurvedic medicine practices to help heal everything from infertility to digestive issues for centuries. Luckily, in recent years — as complementary and alternative health practices have become more popular across the world — Ayurveda has been enjoying a major worldwide resurgence. • What is the aim of Ayurvedic treatment? The main goal of Ayurvedic medicine is to help people live long, healthy and balanced lives without the need for prescription drugs, complicated surgeries or suffering through painful diseases.
  3. • Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that’s truly stood the test of time. First originating in the Vedic culture of India, it’s actually considered by many to be the oldest healing science there is. • What is meant by “Ayurvedic medicine”? This system is based on the premise that there are three doshas: • Vata • Pitta • Kapha • Another core belief of Ayurveda is that disease and illness originate from an imbalance in the three energies and a disconnect from nature.
  4. BENEFITS • According to a report published by University of Maryland Medical Center, Ayurvedic medicine and an appropriate Ayurvedic diet can help treat inflammatory, hormonal, digestive and autoimmune problems, including: • Anxiety or depression • Asthma • Certain types of cancer • Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease • Dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) • Herpes • High blood pressure or cholesterol • Parkinson’s disease • Perimenopausal problems • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and cramps
  5. HOW DOES IT WORK? • Rather than treating symptoms with drugs and ignoring the underlying problems, this system aims to look at the root causes of diseases and how they are related to a person’s thoughts, beliefs and lifestyle — in other words, a person’s “vital energy.” • What’s especially of interest to researchers studying traditional healing symptoms like Ayurveda is the power of the mind and its connection to the body. Since various studies have acknowledged that beliefs surely have the ability to change someone’s health, even after controlling for placebos, new health models are beginning to focus more on including the mind and its interaction with the body as a primary lever of curing diseases. • Better controlling stress seems to be one of the primary benefits of Ayurveda, according to a Western medical viewpoint.
  6. • Is Ayurvedic banned in USA? No, it’s considered a complementary and alternative system of medicine. • Considering Ayurvedic medicine has been practiced for thousands of years, it’s generally considered to be very safe. However, there is some concern over the risk of toxicity when using certain Ayurveda formulations and herbs, which are not closely regulated and may possibly contain harmful substances like heavy metals. • It’s important to find a reliable Ayurvedic practitioner who has completed formal training, especially if the practitioner recommends herbs or other natural medicines for you to try. Always purchase preparations from a reputable source.
  7. CONCLUSION • Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient Indian medical system that is based on natural and holistic approaches to promoting physical and mental health. Today it’s considered a complementary/alternative practice in countries such as the U.S. • What does Ayurveda practice? It takes into account bio- individuality and a patient’s entire body-mind-spirit connection. According to Ayurvedic medicine, everyone is unique in terms of his or her individual balance between three energy (or personality) types called doshas. • Ayurvedic practitioners use a well-balanced healthy diet, lifestyle changes, stress relief and various herbal remedies to treat all sorts of conditions by helping bring the body back into balance. • This system may help treat issues such as arthritis, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune conditions, anxiety or depression, allergies, fatigue, and high blood pressure and cholesterol.
