Ayurveda, is one of the world’s oldest forms of medicine, is a 5,000-year-old medicinal system originating from India meaning “life-knowledge”. Nestling herbal healing derived from the Hindu culture, Ayurvedic medicine concentrates on health and wellness by harmonizing the mind, body, and spirit. You can achieve total wellness from a trained Ayurvedic practitioner through methods such as guided meditation, yoga, massage, herbal medicine, and body-specific changes in diet. As Ayurveda tells that no two individuals are not same in constitutions of the body, so according to the body type Ayurveda recommends the different treatment to them. Sprouted in the pristine land of India some 5000 years ago, Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity, is the oldest healthcare system in the world and it combines the profound thoughts of medicine and philosophy. Since then Ayurveda has stood for the wholesome physical, the mental and spiritual growth of humanity around the world.
BENEFITS OF AYURVEDA
HELPS LOWER STRESS AND ANXIETY
Because stress is related to nearly every aspect of overall health, an Ayurvedic medicine practitioner might call for a number of different techniques used to naturally treat anxiety and depression symptoms, lower cortisol and rebalance the body’s hormones or “energy.” This can include meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, herbal treatments, skin brushing, visualization or repeating inspirational mantras.
WEIGHT LOSS OR MAINTENANCE:
While weight loss isn’t the main concern, Ayurvedic medicine promotes shedding excess weight by consuming a natural and healthy diet and using some essential oils. A study conducted found that changing someone’s health diet helped clients lose weight effectively. This is likely because Ayurveda promotes compliance and believes that a diet should be balanced, practical and easy to follow.
Ayurvedic medicine rests on the assumption that a combination of a poor diet, bad digestion, not enough rest or sleep and insufficient air (Vaayu) inhaled cause oxidative stress and inflammation. This results in an imbalance in metabolism. The focus of Ayurvedic healing looks at using various ways of reducing inflammation with hopes of regulating the heart and circulatory system, digestive tract and the means of elimination of wastes. People have prescribed a combination of herbal treatments, antioxidants to quench free radicals, an exercise that is gentle but boosts metabolism and circulation and a combination of phytochemicals from natural herbs.
REDUCE SYMPTOMS OF ILLNESS AND DISEASE:
Eating an illness-specific diet, getting sun exposure, and breathing in and out can help the person eat better and treat symptoms of illness. Metals like iron are thought to have healing properties to keep diseases away and reduce the chances of getting sick. Ayurvedic medicine can help lower pain and swelling, improve blood flow and fight inflammatory conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia just as well as medication.
HEALTHY AND GLOWING SKIN:
Ayurveda has a ton of proven tricks to help keep your skin soft and radiant without spending money. Consuming veggies like cucumber, lettuce, and radish are easier to digest because of their purifying properties and high-water content. Exercising keeps your joints and muscles toned and helps your body expel toxins through sweat. Nuts and seeds contain healthy fats and Omega-3’s, which have active components responsible for maintaining healthy skin and lowering inflammation in certain skin conditions.
