Ayurveda is the world’s oldest medical science, which finds its roots in Vedic Indian culture. It is more than 5000 years old, and comprises of specific accurate methods of diagnosis and treatment protocol for almost every known disease.
Because it literally translates into the ‘Science of Life’, it is evolutionary in every sense. An Ayurvedic Physician is one who has studied this ancient science in great depth, from what is known as the ‘Shastras’. No Ayurvedic Dr. can ever claim to be an expert, as this intricate, deep knowledge often has many new findings and surprises as one delves more into its study. It is said to take many lifetimes to master Ayurveda, or any of the other Vedic Sciences.
Ayurveda is based on the principles of ‘Dosha‘ – which are the primordial energies of every living creature.
These Doshas give rise to health and wellness, as well as disease and death. Ayurvedic principles center around maintaining equilibrium of these energies, according to one’s own genetic makeup, which is known in Ayurveda as ‘Prakruti’.
By maintaining homeostasis, human life has the potential to reach approximately 120 years of age, without the occurrence of much illness.
Ayurveda, the richest and vastest medical science known to mankind, aims to cure disease, and restore health and wellness to the individual, so they may live a happy and success life, with the ability to follow and complete all four pursuits – Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. In order for one to accomplish all, it is vital that their lifespan be long enough, and that they are free from any disease. Ayurveda accomplishes this, by restoring ones health after disease, and once again bringing about rejuvenation and vitality naturally.
