Ayurveda FAQ's

1. What is Ayurveda?

In Sanskrit, the word ayurveda consists of the words ayus, meaning "longevity", and veda, meaning "related to knowledge" or "science". Ayurved, originated in India, is an ancient healing system. Ayurved originated as part of "Vedic Science" The fundamentals of Ayurved can be found in all the Vedic scriptures viz. Rugveda, Atharvaveda, Yajurved and Samaved. This is an integral spiritual science devised to give a comprehensive understanding of the entire universe and universal laws. Ayurveda can be defined as a system, which uses the inherent principles of nature, to help maintain health in a person by keeping the individual's body, mind and spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.

2. What are the Basic Principles of Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether. These elements are represented in humans by three "doshas", or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. When any of the doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting a right balance of the three doshas("tridoshas"). Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help individuals reduce the excess dosha.A healthy person, as defined in Sushrut Samhita, one of the primary works on Ayurveda, is "he whose doshas are in balance, appetite is good, all tissues of the body and all natural urges are functioning properly, and whose mind, body and spirit are cheerful..."

3. How is Ayurvedic medicine different from Allopathic medicine?

Ayurvedic medicine is based on the Pancha Bhutha principle. Treatment is done to eliminate the root cause and not for the symptoms alone, which are targeted by the allopathic medicine. Ayurvedic medicine is complete it is not a fractional cure. In case of the allopathic treatment it is fractional it is only targeted to the symptoms for this reason we encounter many side effects in the course of allopathic treatment.

2. Is homeopathy slow in action?

Several types of diseases, chronic or acute, can be treated effectively with homeopathy. Unfortunately, people tend to go to a homeopath only when the acute problem becomes chronic, that is, it becomes more severe and difficult to treat. They choose homeopathy when other systems of medicine fail to treat or completely cure their medical condition, most often in cases like arthritis, asthma, rare skin conditions, etc. These cases naturally take longer to treat, even with any other system of medicine. For acute ailments like fever, diarrhoea, acute cold, cough, etc., homeopathic remedies act as fast as conventional medicines, sometimes even faster. In certain cases, these remedies produce results even quicker than other forms of therapy.

Thus, homeopathy provides a safe and effective cure for a majority of ailments, except those which need emergency care and surgery.

4. How does homeopathy work?

The philosophy of homeopathy tells us that the symptoms of a disease are the guideposts to let us know if there is something wrong deep within and in need of correction. It focuses on the whole person rather than just treating symptoms or 'disease labels'. Homeopathy aims to treat the root cause of a problem, not just mask the symptoms.

Homeopathy is based on the principle of 'like cures like'. It treats illness or disease by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would produce symptoms similar to those of the disease in healthy people. For example, when you chop onions, you have watery eyes and a runny nose, and you may also sneeze or cough. All of it happens due to exposure to the tuber's active substances. The homeopathic remedy, Allium Cepa, made from red onion, can help you overcome a cold or allergy attack in which you may have similar symptoms -watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing or throat irritation.

Homeopathic medicine works by stimulating the body's own curative powers. It strengthens the immune system. Once the immune system is strong and starts functioning effectively, many ailments get cured naturally.

5. Do homeopathic medicines have side-effects?

No, homeopathic medicines do not cause any side-effects. Homeopathy is a natural, safe as well as effective method of healing. Homeopathic medicines are made from natural sources like plants and minerals, thus causing no side-effects, even if you take them throughout your lifetime. They are absolutely non-toxic and non-habit forming, and the cure is safe and sure.
