Five Things You Know About Indian Ayurvedic Medicine

Author : Dr. Gurnam Saini  

Posted On : 16 November, 2018

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, which means knowledge of lifespan or longevity.  An ancient traditional system of medicine that has its historical roots traced to the Vedic era.


Ayurveda is a discipline that has been assigned the status of Upaveda or auxiliary knowledge and has been known to have disseminated from Gods to sages.  In the mythological scriptures, Dhanwantari is regarded as the Hindu God of Ayurveda.  Ashtanga Hridayam, the heart or crux of all the eight boughs of Ayurveda is one of the fundamental texts of Ayurveda.


Ayurveda believes that the universe is constituted of five elements referred as Pancha Mahabhoota viz earth, air, water, fire, and ether. These five elements form elemental substances or humours viz Vata, Pitta, and Kapha , which controls the basic physiological function in human body. The catabolism of body is assumed to be controlled by Vata, metabolism is governed by Pitta and anabolism by Kapha. Each individual has a unique emotional and physical constitution and imbalance of any of this humours leads to diseases.


Ayurveda follows eight methods to diagnose ailments, namely Nadi (pulse), Jivha (tongue), Dhruk (vision), Shabda (speech), Sparsha (touch), Mala (stool), Mootra (urine), and Aakriti (appearance).   The practitioners of Ayurveda arrive at a diagnosis following a holistic approach using their five senses.


The person-specific treatment plan is followed in Ayurveda unlike the concept of modern medicines.  The goal being to promote wellness of mind, body and soul and not mere fighting the diseases.


The constituents of Ayurvedic medicines are as natural as the nature itself.  Ayurveda truly believes, “A healthy mind lives in a healthy body.”
