Information About Ayurveda
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old natural healing system rooted in the Vedic culture of India and is a set of wisdom that helps human beings to stay balanced and fit in every way while realising the upper limit of their human potential.
Ayurveda is an ancient Sanskrit word that literally means “Science of Life”.
The main goal of Ayurveda is to determine the ideal constitutional type of the person (dosha) and in case of any imbalance, to find the source of the symptoms that herald the imbalance and to make comprehensive recommendations to restore the balance.
In the Vedic texts, which are the source of Ayurvedic Medical Science, it is explained that human beings consist of 3 main bodies;
Physical Body, Mental Body and Spiritual Body. Although we think that these bodies are separate from each other as a result of the linear thinking tendency of our mind, our three bodies are intertwined with each other and are in a constant exchange of energy and information. In other words, only taking care of our physical body, eating a healthy diet and doing sports in an ideal routine is not enough to create balance in all our bodies. Certainly, a lifestyle that balances the health of our Physical Body, which consists of matter and energy, is essential. However, while the physical body is perfectly healthy, simultaneously mental turmoil, psychological breakdowns or spiritual problems may arise. Then, according to Ayurveda, it is not possible to talk about harmony and harmony in all our bodies. Here, Ayurveda emphasises that for our holistic health and wellness, we should take care of our three main bodies and include daily routines that create balance in all our bodies.
As it is understood from the explanation, the terms “Preventive Medicine” or “Preventive Medicine” are also used for Ayurveda, which is not only a disease treatment system.
Because Ayurveda examines the disease in 6 steps and while conventional Western Medicine requires the disease to have reached the 5th or 6th stage in order to diagnose the disease, in Ayurvedic Medicine, various diseases can be diagnosed even when they are in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th stages and their progression can be prevented to a great extent with lifestyle changes.
Although Ayurveda was tried to be forgotten during the years of foreign occupation in India, it is currently experiencing a great awakening both in the country of its birth and all over the world.
Both Tibetan Medicine and traditional Chinese Medicine have their roots in Ayurveda. Ancient Greek Medicine also embraces many of the concepts used in Classical Ayurvedic Medical texts written thousands of years ago.
In summary, the Ayurvedic Way of Life includes effects such as raising our consciousness, giving a positive impetus to our general state of health, delaying aging, food selection, aromatherapy and directing our sports activities, as well as improving our quality of life in general, making us happier, more peaceful and more satisfied.
