Are Ayurvedic Treatments Effective?

Ayurveda is one of the world’s ancient healing systems that was originated in India and is still widely popular in major parts of the country. It is a holistic healing system that focuses on an array of topics from treatment, diet, lifestyle, etc. Ayurveda consists of naturally focused therapies to help gain back the balance between one’s body, spirit, mind, and environment. The goal of Ayurveda is not to fight the disease itself but to rather assist in building resistance to the disease, reducing any psychological distresses like worry, stress, and increasing life’s harmony.

The word Ayurveda can be broken down into ‘Ayur’ which means life and ‘Veda’ which means knowledge. So, it essentially means knowledge of life. It rests among one of the many old medical systems in the world yet there is not a lot of research to back it up. However, despite that, Ayurveda has been effective in treating a lot of chronic diseases which today are difficult to cure.

Ayurvedic medicine consists of plants mainly as well as animals, minerals, metals, and any other items. This is why it is to be handled only by someone who is trained in Ayurvedic medicine as improper use can be very harmful. Ayurveda follows a holistic approach, which means it looks at the very root of an issue and not just anything on the surface levels.

Ayurveda lags behind with proper scientific research and needs more research. Contrary to modern medicine which tends to have far more side effects than ayurvedic medicine and treatments, they are still preferred widely because of their potential to bring fast and effective relief and results. There are several aspects that require scrutiny and work that can pose for the improvement in the research done in this field as well as the application of its methodology. First off, experienced modern tools and technology need to be invested in researching further into the ayurvedic system of medicine. There are more ayurvedic practitioners than those who wish to pursue research in this field. The knowledge base although flourishing needs to be vamped and refreshed. However, even with research flourishing in this field, the major significance lies in whether the information provided holds any verity and how far it can be applied in real life. Very few studies have been able to reveal information that coincides with the principles of Ayurveda and can actually be applied to our dynamic modern atmosphere. This is why proper structure and a well-developed strategy to carry out research are required.

Ayurveda follows the concept of ‘dosha’ which essentially means ‘that which can cause problems (or faults/defects). Thus, it is the bio-energy center where these energies are said to reign your body with respect to physical, mental as well as emotional factors. There are three main types of doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Vata refers to space as well as air. Pitta refers to fire and water and Kapha refers to earth and water. Corresponding to these are the body’s archetypes. These doshas if affected are believed to have an impact on a person’s health and well-being. The ayurvedic massage consists of scouring out the medical ailment and selecting the right kind of oil that will be used for the massage. This is done to bring back balance to the doshas. There are a lot of massages done under this some of which are – Abhyanga (full body), Swedana (done to reduce sweating and flush out toxins), Kativasti (For back and muscle aches and pains), Shirodhara (head massage).

An Ayurvedic treatment plan is tailored to the needs of the person built on the person’s physical and mental components. There is a process called the ‘panchakarma’ which is known as the cleansing process and renders to restore the balance back all the while decreasing the symptoms of the ailment. This is why a trained practitioner is required to gauge the situation and administer the treatment accordingly.

As we learned about the three doshas that maintain the balance and harmony of our body, the optimum state is said to be the healthy state of our body. When any medical issue arises, this balance is shaken. This is why Ayurveda helps you in understanding how to take care of your health. Ayurveda treatment is also good for weight-related concerns as the medicines used help in reducing weight through natural ways and a healthy diet. It also helps flush out the toxins from our bodies that are believed to be collected over time. There are three types of toxins, namely, Ama, Amavisha, and Garavish. Ama is the most common type of the three referring to the residue left in the digestion tracts as a result of incomplete digestion. Amavisha arises when Ama is not taken care of mixing with body tissues and other wastes of our body. Garavish refers to toxins that enter outside of our body such as from the environment. These generally include preservatives and other additives. It keeps your hormones in check through proper balance as you look after them in a natural way rather than using other medication. It is also said to reduce the effect of stress and anxiety on our body through ayurvedic therapies as they improve the functioning of the nervous system.
