Ayurveda is one of the oldest and time-honoured medical systems in the world. Now, the first question that might be cropping up in your mind is why, in this modern world of Internet, globalisation and such rapid progress of science and technology are we going back to such age – old conventional systems and medicines? Ayurveda, in the truest sense, gives us all the secrets of leading a healthy and happy life in a natural way. Today, people from all over the world are realising the importance of keeping in touch will nature to gain physical and spiritual well-being. It is through the principles of Ayurveda that we seem to understand how nature is connected to a complete and healthy life. We are now much more conscious about life and how to make the most out of it. Ayurveda, in the true sense, is the science of living life.
Now, what is life then? A definition of life by Ayurveda gives it as a blending of body and soul, mind and senses. So, you can well understand that life is not only concerned with the well-being of the body, but also deals with the mental and spiritual health and social living.Modern scientific thoughts may not be placing enough significance on spirituality and mental state of a human being, the concepts being rated as outdated and to be dealing with voodoo culture. The ideas seem to fill our minds with negativity. We feel that it is not entirely the fault of this generation. The modern science fails to place enough significance in those concepts, thus keeping you in total darkness on these, and a sense of weird feeling when these topics are raised. To us, the people of this generation, happiness is all about getting wealthy from a materialistic point of view. Everything around us is related to consumerism and material pleasure – superfluous happiness and satisfaction. Now, it is time to think and think hard – that if this superficial and material life is the key to all happiness, then why is it that most of us are not actually happy in life? Most of us, our friends, family members are all suffering from dissatisfaction in life. Stress, anxiety, distress, depression and terror seem to be the guiding forces of life – and so there is such wide-spread discontent and miserable life. Has it ever occurred to you that the reason behind this is most probably, the mal-nourishment of a major part of our being – the intellect and our senses?
Ayurveda literally means "science of life and longevity." and is considered to be the traditional system of medicine of India. Ayurveda is a science in the sense that it is a complete system. It is a qualitative, holistic science of health and longevity, a philosophy and system of healing the whole person, body and mind. Ayurveda owes its origin to a time that is way into the past. It was a time when medicine was linked completely with philosophy. Philosophy has always been a great guiding and driving force in the Ayurvedic way of thinking and finding cures and medicines for ailments – physical or mental.
Let us now discuss about some of the most unique characteristics of Ayurveda: Ayurveda deals with each case separately, and does not generalise treatment methodologies based on symptomatic therapy. So, when it comes to the problems faced by different individuals, each case is dealt with individually – their threshold level and the level of manifestation of any disease may vary, and these are always taken into consideration. The unique nature of every case has a separate way of getting attended to. Every person is unique, and based on his unique lifestyle, the physical and mental exercises that are needed are unique for him. Depending on his very own requirements, Ayurveda dictates physical and spiritual therapy and medication, that is just right for him. Ultimately, Ayurveda aims to bring about a complete balance between your body and mind, soul and senses. In Ayurveda, a great stress is placed on the connection between our mind and body. We also get to gain a lot of knowledge on this connection from this subject. Ayurveda clearly explains the separate needs for separate individuals and we also come to understand why different individuals react in different wauys in different physical and psychological conditions.
