Ayurveda, the science of Life, has a unique way of care. The basic principles of Ayurveda are very close to nature, derived from natural principles and is in harmony with each and every tone of nature. This is really interesting to know how this science has evolved in such a way that it is not a compartment system, but as a whole, it ensures the overall, multi dimensional or multiplanar balance of human life.
What are the basic things required for a good living. Forget the kuxury. There are essential components required. We need so many positive things for good living. Fortunately we are blessed with so many things, but the question is, are they able to provide us a good living?
Where will we get inights about good living? Take the case of food. The food matters a lot in maintaining health which is essential for good living. How a good food menu can be drafted according to the need of a person, age, geography, digestive power, likes and dislikes, season, time and many more? There are certain principles for that. These are well explained in Ayurveda.
This is just an example. The diet, activity, behaviour for maintaining a positive health and tips for good living are there in this science. As we believe, Ayurveda is not just a traditional or ancient healing system of India. It explains well about the way a person has to live. This healthy way of good living prevents illness, promotes health and longevity. Ayurveda explains about an internal functional balance that keeps everyone healthy. If there is an imbalance happening in our body due to many factors, there begins the illness. In the initial state, we have to make some changes in our diet and activity, otherwise known as ‘Pathya’, which itself can cure the condition. If necessary, there are medicines and treatments which can again help to get back the functional balance in the body.
Toxins make everything dirty. So cleansing means reomving the toxins. There are toxins getting collected in our body. Being a biological machine, there will be waste materials produced at the end. Normal cleansing system in our body is very active to eliminate these toxins through urine, stool, sweat and breath. But sometime our body produces more toxins due to unhealthy inputs and poor metabolism. These toxins get accumulated in the deeper tissues and this may gradually create the functional imbalance and end up with diseases. Hence an extra support is required for the body to eliminate these toxins and to maintain the cleanliness. Ayurveda has a unique way of cleaning the body by eliminating these deep tissue level. This is a therapeutically assisted cleaning process. The body is supported with the principles of nature to bring back the lost balance. This detox process, or cleansing technique is known as Sodhana chikitsa. For that, there are five simple process called Panchakarma.
All for good. The objective of each and every point mentioned in Ayurveda is for Good Living. Let us go back to the principles of nature and blend with that for good living.
