Ayurveda is one of the world’s 5,000 year old medicine system Which is originated in India, means “knowledge of life.” Ayurvedic medicine focuses on health and wellness by blending the mind, body, and spirit.
Ayurvedic practitioners believe that each person is made up of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water and earth. These combine with the human body to produce three life force or energy called doshas. They control how your body works. They are Vata dosha (space and air); Pitta dosha (fire and water); and Kapha dosha (water and earth).
Nowadays, when we go to a medical doctor, we are typically examined primarily at the level of the body and given a one-size-fits-all prescription to deal with our disease. And if we exhibit even the slightest bit of mental anguish, we are automatically labeled as being bipolar, depressed, or hyperactive, and accordingly given either antidepressants or ADHD medication to cope. The western medical system is designed such that doctors are encouraged to treat diseases, rather than people.
Ayurveda practitioners, however, spend more quality time with patients, building a relationship, and thereby focusing on the person first and the disease or imbalances later. A lot of care is then put into developing the most optimal diet, daily routine, seasonal routine, exercise regimen, yoga and meditation practice, herbal medicines, and more for each person.
