It is a unique, indispensable branch of science and medicine, a completely naturalistic system which depends on diagnosis of the human body based on the body constitution – it classifies body constitutions into vata, pitta and kapha. The principle of Ayurveda not only focuses on healing someone but also on finding the major cause of illness and eradicating it permanently.
When one talks of the benefits this traditional system of medicine has to offer- they are numerous. The permanent healing mechanism of a disease has made Ayurveda very popular among a large number of people. Everybody knows that there are no side effects of Ayurveda and that this treatment has proved to be immensely useful for the treatment of chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart ailments. In addition, the non-invasive nature of treatment has attracted attention from everyone across the globe.
Ayurveda is all about how to live- life. So diet and lifestyle are main concerns of Ayurveda. Medicines are not that important as important is diet and lifestyle. It also heavily relies on the principle of detoxification and believes that until and unless the root cause of a disease remains in the body, the body cannot be cured, hence removal of all such elements is critical in the treatment.
It is also well known that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Feeling healthy physically leaves a positive impact on the mind itself which makes a person look and feel happy. Various studies indicate that every kind of disease is a direct manifestation of a person’s mental state. A happy mind makes for a happy body and vice versa.
