How ayurveda medicine works

Author : Gurnam Saini  

Posted On : 17 January, 2023

Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient practise with its origins in India. It's predicated on the idea that harmony among one's mental, physical, and spiritual selves is essential to good health.


Ayurveda postulates that there are five elements in the universe: air, fire, water, earth, and ether. Vata, pitta, and kapha are the three doshas that result from the interplay of these elements within the human body. Each individual's physical and mental traits, as well as their predisposition towards developing certain diseases, are based on the specific ratio of the three doshas that characterises them.


Keeping the three doshas in harmony is the primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine. We accomplish this by incorporating dietary and lifestyle modifications along with herbal medicines. If you're looking to restore harmony to your body, an Ayurveda doctor or practitioner may suggest incorporating some yoga and meditation into your daily routine.


In addition, there are a variety of treatments used by Ayurvedic practitioners in Melbourne to aid in dosha balance and healing. Herbal oil massage, herbal supplements, and purification therapies like the five-stage panchakarma system of internal cleansing are all examples.


As a form of medicine, Ayurveda places a premium on promoting health and preventing illness. Regular rejuvenation and detoxification treatments may be suggested by professionals to keep health in check and avoid illness. In order to promote long-term wellness, they may also recommend adopting new habits, such as working out frequently, learning stress-reduction strategies, and getting enough shut-eye.


Vata, pitta, and kapha are the three doshas, and they are said to control various aspects of human biology. The qualities of vata are mobility and circulation, pitta is metabolism and digestion, and kapha is solidity and lubrication. It is believed that imbalances in the three doshas are at the heart of all disease.


A person's dosha type and any imbalances can be identified by an Ayurvedic docotor using one of several diagnostic methods. Testing the pulse, analysing the tongue, and checking the eyes, skin, and nails are all examples.


To restore harmony between the doshas, ayurvedic practitioners may employ a variety of herbal preparations. Herbal supplements can be taken in various forms, such as powders, tablets, or decoctions, and can consist of a single herb or a combination of herbs. Herbs like turmeric, ginger, and licorice are frequently used in Ayurvedic medicine.


The five steps of panchakarma, which are vamana (vomiting), virechana (purging), nasya (nasal administration of medicated oils), basti (enema)  make up a significant part of Ayurvedic medicine.


The diet is also very important in Ayurvedic medicine, with different foods and food combinations being recommended depending on the individual's dosha. Examples of foods that are considered warming and grounding include root vegetables and nuts, while examples of foods that are considered cooling and light include fruits and leafy greens.


Self-care and the use of daily routines, known as Dinacharya in Ayurveda, are also highly valued for their role in preserving health and warding off disease. Oil pulling, self-massage, yoga, and meditation are all recommended practises that fall under this category.


To sum up, Ayurvedic medicine is founded on the idea that harmony between the mind, body, and spirit is crucial to one's health and well-being. The three doshas are kept in harmony through dietary and lifestyle adjustments, as well as through the use of medicinal herbs.


Maintaining health and warding off disease is a primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine, so regular detoxification and rejuvenation treatments may be recommended by a Ayurveda doctor or practitioner. Always consult an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner before beginning any treatment.

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • I’m very happy with the treatment and medication given by Dr. Saini to heal De Quervain tensosynovitis. Pain was really too bad , I couldn’t stretch my thumb or move my wrist. On my third and final day of treatment I completely forgot I had an injury on my wrist because after the second treatment I had zero pain. Thank you so much Dr.Saini.

  • Since September 2018, I have been in and out of hospital with consistent bowel and rectal issues. Three weeks after my last surgery this year, I literally stumbled across Pure Herbal. Dr Saini, (Ayurvedic Doctor) has been an absolute God send. I have worked closely with him since March. I have been extremely commited to the daily herbal regime, detox and treatments provided at Pure Health. At 46, I have never felt better physically, mentally and spiritually. What were constant symptoms, are now a thing of the past. I will continue this cleansing journey and with Dr Saini's expertise, I know my health will continue to improve. 🙏
