WHAT IS AYURVEDA?
The Sanskrit word Ayurveda has two roots: ‘Ayu’, meaning life and ‘Veda’, meaning science. The practice of Ayurveda is founded on the principles of a 5,000 years old universal medicinal system which use is proving very much in existence today. Ayurvedic treatment is tailored to each unique person in a professional, supportive and compassionate environment.
Ayurveda believes that the human being is a microcosm of nature containing five elements. Ayurveda looks at a human being and treats in a holistic manner, taking into consideration the unity of mind, body and spirit. As a complementary and preventative medicine, it is very helpful in treating symptoms effectively.
According to Ayurvedic texts, a person is said to have good health when they enjoy a balance of physical and psychological elements, of energies produced in the body, and of tissues in the organs combined with proper elimination of wastes, a happy heart and soul, a happy, functioning mind and proper functioning of the five senses.
To put it simply, Allopathy treats specific symptoms with quick results, whilst Ayurveda works on the premise that all disorders (whether physical or mental) result from an imbalance of one of more of the factors mentioned above. Effective treatment, Ayurvedic practitioners believe, lies only in the holistic approach. It is this approach that now leads psychiatrists to believe that Ayurveda holds the possibilities of an alternative treatment for mental health issues.
Ayurvedic medicine provides for a holistic change whilst Allopathic medicine deals with specific symptoms of the disorder. Ayurveda recommends balanced dietary and lifestyle habits along with herbal treatment and therapy. It has proved to be an alternative form of treatment, which not only includes treating the disorder – physical and psychological – but also bringing in a change in the lifestyle of the person to prevent future illnesses.
Ayurveda is helpful in treating a number of different problems, including digestive issues, circulatory & nerve complaints, female problems such as menopause, endometriosis, thyroid/hormonal imbalance, fertility and reproductive issues, obesity, joint & muscle pain, auto-immune disorders, skin problems, allergies, respiratory conditions, stress, anxiety, low mood and sleep disturbance.
Before your treatment starts it is advised to attend a personal One-To-One consultation during which your unique constitution will be assessed and your medical history discussed in order to address and treat any problem at the root cause level and find out about your expectations and needs.
