From the time Immemorial, the Ayurveda system of medicine is being practiced successfully despite the ever-changing concepts and new inventions made in the field of medicine have proved its mettle in front of stiff competition from various other branches of medicine.
According to Ayurveda, disease is closely related with the way of living. A healthy person will be one who observes the rules of healthy living. The morbidity of the body is remedied by medication, morbidity of mind by spiritual knowledge, philosophy, fortitude, remembrance and concentration. Health is the supreme foundation of virtue, wealth, satisfaction and liberation. Disease is the destroyer of health and ultimately life itself, as such the great obstruction to the progress of humanity.
Ayurveda has its own unique and universal vision and method of treatment. It does not treat symptoms but targets elimination of root cause of any malady or ailment. It believes not in the part but in the whole and tries to see the whole individual, caring not just for the affected part but the entire body. Ayurvedic treatment and therapy, prevention and cure are collateral, leading to a transformation of the body mind and spirit. The scope of Ayurvedic treatment consists a decent use of Medicines, Diets and Practices. Ayurveda is a philosophical exposition expounding a way of life and it leads to relaxation, which is a trinity of physical, mental and spiritual awakening.
The term Relaxation has been widely misused in this world of stress. In Ayurveda, to live is to relax. The healthy way of living leads to everlasting bliss. This relaxation is the beginning of the journey into the world of Ayurveda.
