Understanding that we all have a unique constitution, body and mind alike, has led the wise man of ancient India to develop this healthcare system that is known as the science of life.
Different from the modern approach regarding the treatment of diseases this system is only seen as a complementary option. Although it is complicated, it sometimes serves by just a couple of elements as massage, meditation, and other therapies.
India is where it all started, and because of this almost around 90% of the population uses the holistic treatments. Such treatments include following strict diets and practicing traditional medicine. The approach to treat and care for its patients includes a system based on each’s state and will be custom made to ensure the success. This system is made out of all of the individual’s needs, and not just the ones related to sickness or health. Thus, there are nutrition, exercises, hygiene, and other elements that are taken into consideration.
Not being able to rely on prescription pills means that the plans made for certain individuals will strive to achieve a robust physical condition alongside with a healthy mind, and spiritual harmony.
There are two main principle that govern this form of healthcare and these two are:
• The body and mind are linked; there can be no separation while speaking of healing one or the other
• The mind is the most powerful tool when it comes to healing the body; nothing can match it
As an example of how the system works, we will consider meditation. This is a frequently used practice, and we will see why.
Meditating will bring a balanced state of mind, your inner self will experience this and will be able to transfer it to the outer body. As the two of them are linked the body will benefit from the quiet, peaceful state of mind. The body reacts to the meditation state and lowers the heart rate; it also decreases the production of some hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. While reducing certain elements others will have an increased production rate, well-being neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine and endorphins are released into the body.
Another piece of the puzzle is eating well, eating fresh and nourishing at the same time. The magic of eating healthy comes from the way foods are prepared and consumed. No nutrients must escape our daily meals and to do so, the Ayurveda provides us with a little trick. Make sure all these tastes are included in your diet: sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter and astringent.
