Ayurveda is an ancient Indian health science which derives from the Hindu tradition, greatly and extensively described in the Vedas, the most ancient texts known by Humanity, which not only hold the knowledge of medical sciences but also reflect on other sciences like Mathematics, Astrology, Psychology, Language, etc.
Practiced in the Orient, from Tibet to Siberia, in the last 5,000 years and, according to studies, it originates from Siberia and was dispersed over Asia by Mongolic tribes thousands of years ago.
Ayurvedic Medicine (which means “Science of Life”) is a comprehensive system of medicine which combines natural therapies with a highly personalized approach of treating a disease.
The key of Ayurvedic Medicine is the “Constitution” (Prakriti) and once it gets identified, it allows us to establish a whole profile of a person’s health.
The subtle and intricate constitutional profile of a person is the first critical step in this process, once it is identified, becomes the base of all clinical decisions.
Ayurvedic Medicine relies on the concept of the different metabolic types of the body, or “Dosha”. The three metabolic body types are known as Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and it has its own precise system of diagnosis.
Ayurvedic Medicine maintains that to restore health, it is necessary that the illness, or the imbalances of body and emotions, are correctly understood and diagnosed in the first place.
After diagnosing there are four major methods applied by an Ayurvedic doctor to manage illness: cleansing and detoxification, palliation, rejuvenation (rasayana) and mental hygiene.
