Ayurveda: How It Works

Author : Gurnam Saini   LinkedIn Facebook

                                                    

 

Ayurvedic medicine is although considered ancient yet may offer a complete systematic approach to health & wellbeing. It may have the potential to help people of all ages who are ready to take their first steps on the path to wellness.

 

The Ayurvedic approach to health care is focussed on not only identifying & treating the symptoms of an illness but also mainiting the health of a healthy person.


Ayurveda has two main features:

 


1. Body Type


Firstly, it is based on the principle that each individual has their own unique body make up known as Constitution or Prakriti, which is determined by the makeup of their parents and becomes apparent at birth.


Once you know your body’s constitution it becomes much easier to for an individual to live a healthy life by following a compatible lifestyle and diet that keeps the body’s constitution in balance. If at any stage an in-balance occurs, it is much easier to structure a specific program to redress the imbalance rather than just treating the symptoms of the illness as they occur.


2. Body Intelligence


The second feature of ayurveda is that each individual has a unique bodily intelligence. When this intelligence is kept in a balanced state the body has the ability to flush out waste products from cellular metabolism more easily. When the body is unable to regularly flush out these toxins they will start to collect in the tissues leading to more wear and tear on the body, both physically and mentally.


Therefore balanced body intelligence is necessary for flushing out toxins, keeping the body healthy by maintaining this equilibrium and preventing problems from manifesting. When these imbalances occur, it is important to be able to identify what has influenced this change and to redress these factors through diet, lifestyle and environmental changes. This is the role of the Ayurvedic practitioner.


 

Ayurvedic Treatments In Australia


An Ayurvedic practitioner carry out a through body assessment & case history to determine which of the three bodily intelligences are affected, whether Vata, Pitta or Kapha. The practitioner then assess how deep this imbalance has gone and which tissues have been affected.


The practitioner then assess whether the imbalance is in its preliminary stages or has gone deeper into the body to manifest as a particular ailment and may then structure a specific program for the client with an intention to bring the body intelligence back into balance.

 


Ayurveda believes that illness begins from disharmony between mind, body and soul. Most of the time the problems & symptoms that manifest at a physical level begin from imbalances at a mental level, so it’s very important to identify a patient’s mental state. Therefore while treating a disease, ayurvedic practitioner keeps in mind the whole complex of mind, body and soul and not merely the physical body or the structural organs. The basis of the human body according to Ayurveda depends on three primary factors viz. Dosha (bodily intelligence),Dhatu (body tissues) and Malas(excretory products).


Doshas are the functional entities with designated functions. They are also said to be subtle forces. These Doshas are three in number viz., Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Doshas are also called as Humors, which govern or control the functioning of the body.


Dhatus/Body tissues are basic body elements which forms body framework and comprise of seven types of body tissues.


Malas/Excretory products are excretory waste products that make the body clean and healthy.


Ayurveda believes that Majority of illnesses arise from poor metabolism. According to Ayurveda, there is no nutritional benefit from eating only healthy food if we are unable to metabolise these foods properly.


Ayurveda believes to have a systematic approach to healing by detoxifying the body and rejuvenating body, mind & spirit. The healing principles of Ayurveda have remained unchanged for centuries.

 

 

So to conclude disease evaluation and management in Ayurveda are individualized. Diagnosis is made by history-taking, observation, palpation, and performing an examination of various organs from ayurveda prospective. Particular attention is paid to the examination of the pulse, tongue, eyes, and nails. 

 


The nature and the quality of the assessment are quite different from conventional biomedical assessment. The findings may also have different interpretations and are based on principles described here. For example, in Ayurveda, 12 different pulses are recognisable and they correlate with the functions of various internal organs.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • 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. 🙏

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues
