The Science of Life

Alternative medicine has become a wonderful supplement to traditional western medicine in recent years. Acupuncture is now accepted as part of mainstream treatment for any number of ailments and, in fact, is provided by Britain’s national health service. A lesser-known form of alternative treatment is an ancient Indian discipline called Ayurveda.

Ayurveda means “science” or “wisdom” of life, and encapsulates diverse component of medicine and the study of life and science.

A comprehensive approach to the human body and the environment is evaluated for total wellness.

Ayurveda treats each person as a unique individual with different health, mental, lifestyle, and spiritual needs. It’s a philosophical way of life rather than occasional medical attention to specific problems.

In Sanskrit, the word for Science of life is Ayurveda, and for 5,000 years, it has been practiced to prolong and enhance the lives of millions. Ayurveda emphasizes the prevention of disease and rejuvenation of the body. As they are also known, the longevity practices have been honed by centuries of study in India and the Far East, where the discipline originates.

Ayurvedic treatment is not about suppressing symptoms. In the case of some conventional medicines, creating new ones, it’s goal is to remove the root cause of disease, thereby giving the sufferer permanent relief. The mind-body connection is the key to treatment, and Ayurveda seeks to balance the mind, body, and spirit to achieve wellness. Ayurvedic practitioners believe that all things in the universe are interconnected and that all human beings contain elements found in the universe. They further believe that health is maintained if the mind and body are in harmony with the universe.

Bringing oneself back into good health and balance with the universe can be achieved using specialized diets, herbs, and massage. Before embarking on an Ayurvedic regimen, the seeker needs to be aware of safety concerns. It is recommended to seek an Ayurvedic medicine practitioner’s advice and always to be sure you obtain your Ayurvedic herbal medicines from a trusted source.

Alternative treatments should always be embarked upon as part of a comprehensive medical plan. The patient should always be monitored by a physician and heed their doctor’s advice when the safety or efficacy of alternative treatment is called into question. The most responsible approach to good health is maintaining an open mind, keeping your physician informed of what you are doing, and gathering as much information as you can.
