Ayurvedic Medicine: Helping The Body Heal Itself

By HERWriter
Rate This

Ayurvedic medicine combines physical, spiritual and psychological treatments, based on the philosophy that the human body can heal itself, restoring balance to the individual.

"Ayurvedic medicine arranges its remedies on the nature of the disease to be treated whether it is air or nerve, water or mucoid or fire or nature."

Ayurvedic medicine uses herbal medications, massage and yoga as some of its treatments. Patients are expected to participate in lifestyle changes that are recommended to enhance health. The goal of ayurvedic medicine is not to prevent disease but rather to restore wholeness to the individual.

This is accomplished in part by elimination of impurities, reduction of symptoms through exercise, meditation or massage. Immunity is stimulated. Herbal medications do not cause adverse side effects.

Ayurvedic medicine treats chronic conditions like allergies, asthma, heart disease, hypertension, immunity dysfunction, inflammation and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Ayurvedic medicine can be used in combination with conventional medicine. It should always be used by a trained ayurvedic medicine practitioner.
