Ayurveda is an extremely well established and developed medical science which works perfectly well with a high success record when adhered to correctly. It is primarily a preventative medicine practice but is also helpful in treating existing health issues. Ayurvedic medicine has a significant time-tested impact on a person's overall health and well-being with a unique mind-body concept and approach. Recent years have brought a heightened interest in Ayurvedic medicine globally. The public has a right to expect that Ayurvedic professionals have adequate qualifications to practice effectively and safely. Legal recognition of the practice of Ayurvedic medicine and clearly stated requirements to practice are essential to promote the profession and protect the general public's health, safety and welfare. Legal recognition of Ayurvedic medicine in the form of state licensure creates standards of minimum competency. Competency is measured and enforced through formal education, training, and examination requirements as per the independent body's guidelines.
Ayurveda is practiced widely in Asia and plays a key role in primary health care. A wide range of Ayurvedic Medicines are manufactured in India and they supply the major share of Ayurvedic Medicines used in Nepal and Sri Lanka. Bhutan also recognises Ayurveda as a Medical system along with Unani and Tibetan Medicine, which are all popular there. Ayurveda is also recognised as a medical system and is fully regulated now in some European countries.
Ayurvedic medicine is India's primary healthcare system. More than 90 percent of the continent's population use some form of Ayurvedic therapy, including following its dietary principles, practicing traditional or "grandma's medicine" or seeking professional help from trained Ayurvedic practitioners. In the United States, Ayurveda is considered a complementary healthcare option, with many Americans employing Ayurvedic elements such as massage, meditation, or cleansing therapies. If that sounds like an all-encompassing definition, it is !
Ayurvedic medicine is entirely holistic. Its adherents strive to create harmony between the body, mind, and spirit, maintaining that this balance prevents illness, treats acute conditions, and contributes to a long and healthy life. Ayurveda offers an approach of simplicity and treatment is plain and simple. Treatment focuses on identifying and treating the root cause. Emphasis is on bringing the mind and body back to balance by balancing the digestive fire (agni) and eliminating/neutralising toxins or negative thoughts or emotions.
Menopause is an intermittent period characterized by many overlapping stages. Menopause generally sets in 3 stages. The first stage is – Perimenopause, followed by a second stage – Menopause and then final stage – Post menopausal.
Perimenopause – It is the time when ovulation and fertility reduce considerably and the hormone levels show a sharp decline.
Menopause – It is when a woman stops having her menstrual periods and the ovaries stop releasing eggs.
Post menopause – This time starts from the last period to the end of a woman’s life.
Menopause is not a disease or a condition, it is the natural process when a woman ceases to be fertile or menstruate. A woman enters in perimenopausal age around 45-47 years. Natural menopause occurs at or after 40.

Since the woman may become moody and even lose her sleep during menopause, there is a strong indication of Vata dosha.

Pitta type menopausal symptoms are often angry and mainly suffer hot flashes.
