What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is defined as the science of life (Ayu=Life, Veda=Science). Since prevention is better than Cure therefore Ayurveda recommends that everyone follow specific routines in their lives to preserve their health and prevent diseases. The prescribed routines are called Dinacharya (Daily Routines) and Rutucharya (Seasonal Routines). Ayurveda also emphasizes on dietary and lifestyle habits that are compatible to one's body type to remain healthy. Ayurveda considers the symptoms of disease as the signals from the body trying to communicate that the body is at dis-ease with the imbalance created in the body by dietary, lifestyle or other causes.

As per the ancient texts Ayurveda is described as follows:

Ayuha asmin vidyate annen vaa ayuha vindati iti Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the science that teaches about all aspects of life – Dharma (Duties), Artha (Assets), Kama (Desires) and Moksha (Liberation of Soul).

Thus Ayurveda deals with Physical, Physiological, Emotional and Spiritual aspects, leading a person towards a happy, healthy and a fulfilling life. Ayurveda is an integral and inseparable part of our day-to-day life. Ayurveda makes us more aware of the bestowments of nature that have been used for healing mankind for centuries regularly and successfully in India and many other countries.

Simply put Ayurveda is “Of Nature, By Nature and For Nature” 

Basics of Ayurveda -

Yat Pinde Tat Brahmande

As per Ayurveda the entire universe is made up of five basic elements- Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. The human body too is made up of the same five basic elements. There are three Doshas (humors or energies) of the human body which are described as Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. These three doshas Vata, Pita and Kapha, are collectively called "Tridoshas". It is believed that a person is born with a particular combination of predominance of the three doshas viz. Vata, Pitta and Kapha which makes the Prakruti (Nature) of an individual – the basic constitution of the body. But changes in lifestyles, food habits, environment and other factors create Vikruti (Imbalance) in the doshas. In Ayurveda the Vikruti of the doshas is considered as the basic factor which gives rise to various diseases. Ayurveda thus recommends correcting this Vikruti (Imbalance of Doshas) to help the body regain its healthy state.

Ayurvedic Definition of Health -

Samdoshaha, samagnisch, samdhatumalkriyaha prasanna atmendriyamanaha swasthaityabhidhiyate

According to Ayurveda the person who has all the Three Doshas in equilibrium, and whose Digestive Fire is strong, all the Dhatus (Body Tissues) and Mala (Excretory Organs) are functioning efficiently, Atma (Soul), Indirya (Senses), Manaha (The Core Intelligence), are in a peaceful state – is an healthy individual.

Hence Ayurveda is not just a holistic health self care system but a way of life that helps us to be in harmony with the nature, understand the symptoms of Vikruti (Imbalance of Doshas) and ways to correct that dosha imbalance Naturally.
