Ayurveda aims to heal not only the body, but also the mind
According to Ayurveda, a person has five main elements: earth, water, fire, air and space (ether). These elements are concentrated in the three doshas — Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Vata is bodily air — source of kinetic energy of the body. Kapha – bodily water, which is the beginning of potential energy. Pitt — bodily fire, balancing the kinetic and potential energies of the body. These three types of doshas form the vital energy of a person. Each dosha manifests itself individually, human health depends on the balance of all doshas. If the doshas accumulate excessively in their places, they can cause illness. The doshas are regulated by Ayurveda methods, their balancing is carried out and, thus, the whole organism is adjusted: it is completely cleansed, rejuvenated and recovered. Ayurveda not only cures ailments, but also pays great attention to their prevention with methods that strengthen the immune system and improve well-being.
Panchakarma — body cleansing system
To identify imbalances Ayurveda uses three main types of diagnostics:
- Darshana- pariksha — physical indicators and symptoms of the patient are investigated;
- Prasna-pariksha — determine the dosha imbalance by talking with the patient;
- Shparshana-Pariksha — the patient is examined, the pulse and blood pressure are measured.
The most important Ayurvedic procedure is Panchakarma, which is a five-step system of body cleansing. It effectively removes toxins from all body tissues, acting at the cellular level, at the same time, the natural balance in the body is restored, the causes that have caused somatic and psychosomatic diseases are eradicated. Before panchakarma, internal and external oiling of the body is performed and toxins are removed by thermal procedures. The most favorable time for carrying out panchakarma is the rainy season – from June to September. The course takes three weeks. The birthplace of Ayurveda is the southern state of India – Kerala.
