What is Ayurveda?

It is an ancient system of medicine developed in Asia, long before the father of medicine, Hippocrates, was even born. The name comes from two conjoined Sanskrit words ‘Ayuh’ (life) and ‘Veda'(science or knowledge). Basically a science of healthy living, Ayurveda has two aims to preserve health and to cure a body afflicted by the disease.

Ayurveda is a way to a healthy & long life and can complement modern medicine. Ayurveda treats the symptoms of a disease and it helps individuals to strengthen their immune system. Ayurveda treats the body, mind and spirit of a person as a whole entity, and works on the basis that the mind and body affect each other, and together can overcome the disease.

Ayurveda is very popular healing method and 35 percents of the island’s population are depending on this natural healing method. Yet Ayurveda is not an alternative medicine. It is one of the oldest forms of medical science known to man – originating 5000 years ago.

One of the fundamental beliefs of Ayurveda is the doctrine of ‘Tri-Dosha’ or the Three Vital Forces ‘Vayu, Pita and Kapha’. Generally translated into Wind, Bile and Phlegm, a more accurate interpretation of Vayu is the transmission of energy within the body; in modern medical terms, nerve impulses, muscle contraction and hormonal activity. ‘Pita’ may not be confined to bile but signifies the whole scope of metabolism and internal heat production while ‘Kapha’ means mucus, often described as ‘The Protective Fluid’. The modern concept of mucus as an antibody containing a liquid which coats and protects internal linings of the body seems to fit in with Ayurvedic thinking.

The healing method of Ayurveda is based on 5 elements Earth, Ether, Fire, Water and Air. These elements form three doshas namely Vata, Pita and Kapha. As per Ayurveda, these three doshas are the main ingredients of the human body and it is essential to maintain the good balance three doshas in order to have a healthy life.
