FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the oldest scientific discipline known to mankind. It is a comprehensive healthcare system that was practiced by sages who attained great knowledge about nature during their spiritual explorations. This ancient science originates from the Vedas - the earliest written body that dates back to over five millennia and contains vast realms of knowledge that span great depths of the universe.
Do Ayurvedic remedies take very long to cure diseases?
This is not entirely true. However, the important question to ask is whether you want quick relief from your symptoms or if you wish to uncover the root cause of your disease and treat it from the inside out. Ayurveda works at the latter by uncovering the imbalance in your body and takes a surprisingly short time to determine the source and type of your disease along with all the factors that are triggering it, such as the dosha, if the condition is chronic or acute, what body systems are being affected by the dosha, etc. The time it takes for Ayurvedic treatments to show results depend on all these factors. If the problem is caused due to a single dosha and involves lesser tissues, then the effects of the treatment are visible fairly quickly. However, if more than one dosha and body systems are involved, then there is a chance that the disease may have also become chronic and will, therefore, take longer time to restore the elements of the body to their natural levels.
What are the benefits of Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a holistic science that handles the concept of disease differently than western medicine. According to it, disease is a result of both body and mind getting affected by disturbance in the organism. The reason behind this illness is an imbalance in the body’s vital energy and life force. This is why Ayurveda doesn’t provide treatments according to symptoms in the body but gives remedies based on body constitution post detoxification. Ayurveda considers the whole body instead of only concentrating on the disease because it does not believe in treating only the symptoms; it focuses on restoring the healing power of the body through natural means through its holistic and individualistic approach.
Does Ayurveda have side effects?
Ayurvedic treatments and herbs are prescribed as per the individual body’s affliction. When these are taken as advised, they are completely safe and free from side effects. Typically, Ayurvedic medicines consist purely of natural herbs, so they can be administered along with western (allopathic) medicines. In fact, they are also used in support of allopathic medications, especially in case of a majority of degenerative and chronic disorders. However, if you are consulting a physician, keep them informed in case of any indication otherwise.
How is Ayurveda better than allopathy?
Ayurveda heals the body with a pragmatic approach in an incredibly scientific, rational, safe, speedy, and wholesome manner. It is also highly effective because every patient is treated according to their individual symptoms, and since Ayurvedic diagnostic methods aim to discover the root cause of the body’s issues, the cure remains permanent. Ayurveda does not just provide superficial relief but it also offers a permanent solution to the patient, by treating their body and healing it from the inside. Ayurveda is truly the medicinal science of the past, present, and the future.
What are doshas?
According to Ayurveda, a living being comprises the five elements that combine together to form its three life forces, which are called doshas. These are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Vata is formed by the combination of air and space; it is responsible for the body’s movements and is in charge of the nervous system and its related tasks. Pitta is created when the fire and the water elements fuse together. This dosha controls the digestion of the body and other functions like hunger, thirst, hormones and enzymes present in the body. It also governs sight, courage, pigmentation, and many other aspects of the human mind as well as body. When earth and water combine together, they form Kapha, which is responsible for controlling the joints, the rigidity of the body, and functions related to its resilience, nourishment, tolerance, sexual power, etc. When these doshas are well-balanced, the body remains free from disorders, but if there is any kind of imbalance, then disease sets in.
