Live & Breath Goodness


For it is the fear of death, the horror of pain and the craving for life that is behind man’s quest and pursuit for a better method of treatment every new day. Even from the day, since Adam had his forbidden apple, started the sufferings of humankind and along with it the quest to overcome that. And this quest, with its passage and through the thousands of years of innumerable cultures and civilization, experiments, analysis and inventions formed into what is now proclaimed by the name of AYURVEDA.

Ayurveda perceive the Mind and Body as two manifestations of the same consciousness. The classical Ayurvedic system was probably driven by insight, intuition, and astute observation of human behavior and nature. This is the science which had laid down the definition of health as physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing of an organism nearly 4000 years before, which is accepted globally by the WHO after many centuries of heated arguments as the definition of Health.

Background of Ayurveda

Medicine is as old as life itself. Ayurveda is the system of medicine that evolved in India which has its origin attributed to Atharva veda and has survived as a distinct entity from remote antiquity to the present day. The fundamentals on which the Ayurvedic system of medicine is based are essentially true for all times and do not change from age to age. These fundamentals are based on human factors on intrinsic causes and not the extrinsic ones. Civilization, human habits or the environment may change, but humanity remains the same. Ayurveda has its complex clinical methods including surgery and the use of strong medications. These, however are secondary to its primary self-healing approach

Tridosha & Panchamahabhoota

Ayurveda believes that everything in this Universe is composed of five elements, the Panchamahabhoota. Which in turn, constitute Vata, Pitta & Kapha the tridosha or biological humors which governs our health and determine our constitution. They are often translated as wind, bile and phlegm. These humors are not only the forces which produce and sustain the body in their normal condition but those which, when out of balance serve to destroy it. Health is constitutedby the right balance of the creative and destructive forces of Dosha.

Constitutional Type

The biological humors/tridosha as the predominant forces in our body become the main factors which determine our psycho-physical constitution. According to Ayurveda we are not alike physically nor do our bodies react in the same way. Each of us is a unique combination and proportion of the biological humors. Hence Ayurveda generally divides individual on the basis of these three biological humors, Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

The Seven Tissues (SaptaDhatu)

Ayurveda views the body as the development of seven tissue. These are plasma, blood muscle, fat, bone, marrow and nerve tissue and reproductive tissues. (Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa, Meda, Asthi, Majja and Shukra in Sanskrit). They form the concentric circle which nourishes and support from the gross to the subtle.

The Six Tastes

Ayurveda recognize six taste in the food and herbs. They are Sweet, Salty, Sour, Pungent, bitter and Astringent.

Treatment Methods

Ayurvedic treatment methods are two kinds. Constitutional or clinical. Constitutional remedies include diet, mild herbs and proper life style per constitution. Clinical remedies consist of strong herbal medication and Pancha Karma.

Pancha Karma

Panchakarma is a bio-cleansing regimen comprising of five procedures, which facilitate better bio availability of the pharmacological therapies, help to bring about homeostasis of body humors, eliminate disease –causing complexes from the body and check the recurrence and progression of disease. The fivefold measures comprehended in this therapy are Vamana (therapeutic emesis), Virechana (therapeutic purgation), Asthapana basti (therapeutic decoction enema), Anuvasana basti (therapeutic oil enema), and Nasya Karma (nasal administration of medicaments). Panchakarma is an effective therapy in managing autoimmune, neurological, psychiatric and musculo-skeletal diseases of chronic and metabolic origin.

Ayurvedic Massage And Marma Therapy

Ayurvedic massage relies heavily on oil and steam treatments that accompany pancha karma. Marma therapy is an ancient Indian practice which focus on the manipulation of subtle energy (prana) in the body for the purposes of supporting the healing process. Marma therapy is based on the utilization of 107 points in the body which are considered to be access points to body, mind, and consciousness. Knowledge of Marma allows the practitioner to influence the flow of prana through both the gross and subtle bodies for the purposes of restoring health and peace of mind.
