What is Ayurveda?
Considered to be the oldest healing science, Ayurveda is a holistic approach to health that is designed to help people live long, healthy, and well-balanced lives. Ayurveda is a branch of one of the Vedas, Atharva Veda. The term Ayurveda is taken from the Sanskrit words ayus, meaning life or lifespan, and veda, meaning knowledge. It has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years and in recent years has started becoming popular in Western and South East Asian cultures as well.
The basic principles of Ayurveda
Ayurveda sees the human body as a blend of the five basic elements: Sky, Water, Earth, Air and Fire combined in such a way so as to control all the processes of health and disease. It is regulated by the three bio-regulating principles of thridoshas (body’s three systems, or doshas) nervous (Vata), the venous (Pitta) and the arterial (Kapha). All people have vata, pitta, and kapha, but usually 1 or 2 are dominant in a given individual. According to Ayurveda, illness arises when these doshas, are out of balance. Many factors such as stress, an unhealthy diet, the weather etc. can disturb the dosha balance. Such disturbances are expressed in the body as disease. To balance the three systems, Ayurvedic physicians primarily prescribe herbal medicines and massage with oil. Additional healing methods can include yoga, sweat baths, meditation, nasal cleansing etc.
The constitutional/individualised approach is the essence of the Ayurvedic health system. It is effective, safe and holistic in its approach.
Ayurvedic treatments and their benefits.
The treatments may be followed (optional) by a bath in warm water.
Ayurvedic massages are generally regarded as more luxurious and exotic than other massages as most use a synergistic combination of oils classically prepared from herbal extracts.
Abhyanga (Ayurvedic warm oil body massage) – for a profound and lasting rejuvenation
Panchakarma – cleanse, balance, heal, rejuvenate!
The word Panchakarma literally means "five actions". It is a program for the body, mind and soul. Health is defined as the body being clear of toxins, the mind at peace, emotions calm and happy, wastes being efficiently eliminated and organs functioning normally. In a busy, stressful and toxic world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins causing deterioration of the body’s normal functions. This eventually weakens our systems, which opens the door for chronic, degenerative, and non-specific diseases to develop. These can evolve into serious specific diseases, ultimately damaging an individual’s health and wellness.
Panchakarma can help reverse these negative effects of our daily living. It is a unique, natural, holistic, health-giving series of therapeutic treatments that cleanses the body’s deep tissues of toxins, opens the subtle channels, brings life-enhancing energy and nourishment thereby increasing vitality, inner peace, confidence and well-being. This is why it is often termed as rejuvenation therapy. Panchakarma can be taken for as few as 3 consecutive days to a more common 5-day treatment and as many as 30 days.
Panchakarma therapy is performed in three stages:
- Preparatory procedures: prepares the body for the discarding of toxins through Snehana (internal and external oleation) and Swedana (therapeutic sweating). Snehana helps to liquefy toxins in the tissues. Swedana is the therapeutic application of heat to the body which helps dilate the body channels to facilitate the toxins to move to the alimentary canal and finally expelled by any of the Panchakarma procedures.
- Main treatment and
- Post-treatment care.

Luke warm oil retained over the specific affected area. Luke warm medicated Ayurvedic oil is placed on the lower back region by making an herbal paste boundary.

According to Ayurveda, obesity is caused by an imbalance 'Kapha – Water Energy'. People with a Kapha (Water) constitution are more likely to gain weight through excess fat than a Pitta (Fire) or Vata (Air) person.

- Herbal Medication –to improve fat metabolism in an obese person.
- Diet management – It is not only the quantity of food that is important, but also the type of food one eats. One should eat the right food, in the right quantity, cooked the right way and at the right time.

Poor diet, digestion and elimination can create an internal environment in the sinuses that allows infection and allergies to more easily occur. Stress, poor lifestyle, bad circulation and lack of rejuvenative regimens can deteriorate the body's immune response to invading organisms in the Nasyam treatment is found useful for sinusitis.
In Nasyam treatment, medicated oil is administered to each nostril by trained practitioners. This treatment is very effective in managing the sinusitis condition.

"within a month of treatment...."
"I sought treatment for polycystic ovaries and associated hormonal
imbalance. Within a month of the treatment, my gynaecologist was
surprised to note that the condition of my ovaries had improved
significantly - there was a significant reduction in the number of
cysts. The hormonal imbalance had also improved significantly.
Although the treatment took time, the results were visible."
