Dr. Mishra, Ayurveda is a millennia-old health system. Why is Ayurveda a sustainable medicine?
Every human being is guided by the three doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha
. Vata is movement, Pitta is transformation and Kapha is that,
what holds together. These three principles correspond to the nervous system (Vata), digestion (Pitta) and the immune system (Kapha).
When these three energies are in balance, we are physically and mentally healthy. All that needs to be done is to keep the doshas in balance
Then disease has no chance to spread in the body. Ayurveda is a preventive health system and therefore sustainable. How can one keep the three doshas in balance?
You have to recognize where the hurdles are in life, what brings you out of balance. It can be mental or physical disorders that imbalance the doshas. Over time, you no longer have a good body feeling. The sooner one recognizes this condition, the easier it is to get back into balance. Through nutrition, the mind is calmed - in Ayurveda, the mind, that is, the mental, plays a very important role.
Only if the mind is clear, healthy and pure, then the body is also healthy.
Poor sleep, for example, is caused by increased Vata. Digestion becomes irregular, one does not come to rest, sleep is restless.
Diseases can arise from this. That is why Ayurveda attaches great importance to purification through a Panchakarma cure
Through the Panchakarma cure, the doshas are brought back into balance, the body channels are cleansed,
the energy can flow again and there are no more deposits. These deposits are called Ama in Ayurveda and are the beginning of any disease. What medicines are used in Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a completely natural medicine, it is completely chemical free. Ayurveda strengthens the immune system and pays attention to how you eat.
This is the basis for staying healthy. If you take pills all the time, you weaken the immune system, the body is already waiting for it,
the body is waiting for another tablet to come, but it continues to disrupt the immune system. In Ayurveda, it is believed that man comes from nature and nature heals man.
In Ayurveda, rasayanas are used, which are mixtures of herbs that are prepared very elaborately.
Rasayana keep the body young and healthy, not in the visual sense, but in the medicinal sense.
They bring back lightness, one feels again more energy and joy in life. Also the sense organs become more alive again, one tastes better and more intensively.
The Rasayana are made in India, you can buy them here at Engel Ayurpura and also reorder them. How does Ayurveda help when a disease has broken out?
Ayurveda always treats an illness with internal cleansing. A Panchakarma cure is a detox cure.
At the same time the body is strengthened and rebuilt. As soon as there is more energy again, you can also start to
to feel oneself again. Since every person is different, it always depends on the constitution what is useful.
Sustainability is shown in the art of pulse reading
. By reading, or rather feeling, the pulse, an Ayurvedic doctor can detect any disease in its earliest stages. Ayurveda knows 7 stages in the development of the disease. The 1st stage is the imbalance of the Doshas. If one already counteracts here, then a disease does not break out at all. The orthodox medicine can recognize a disease only in the 6th stage,
when it has already broken out. But even now, Ayurveda has good healing results.
Sustainability in Ayurveda means that the health of a person is considered holistically from birth.
In this way, diseases can not arise in the first place.
