The disillusion with Allopathy is quite understandable as people are now interested in long term solutions i.e. curing the root of the problem and not just some temporary quick fix. Let us discuss three main areas wherein Ayurveda scores heavily as compared to other medications.
Improving Immunity: Our body has got a natural defense mechanism known as immune system which helps us in protecting us from harmful bacterias and viruses. Ayurvedic medicines use a diverse mix of herbs that are used in an appropriate dose to improve appetite and strengthen our body’s defense system.
Stress Buster: Stress is one of the major reason behind most of the modern day ailments. Our lives have become too stressful due to our work, relationships, unrealistic expectations and so on.
Ayurvedic therapies and massages helps in creating a harmony between our body and soul which helps in reducing stress and rejuvenating dead body cells.
Body Purification – When we are born our body is free from all the toxins and as we grow we keep on contaminating ourselves with tonnes of germs which leads of lots of diseases and complications. Ayurvedic herbs helps in removing body toxins and restoring the balance. Procedures like Panchakarma helps you clean your body from within leading to complete body purification.
These days the main ailment that every city dweller is suffering from is stress and anger. They don’t seem to cope up with the tough lifestyle and continue to live unhappily which leads to several ailments. Western concept like stress management, anger management are really good to develop an understanding of your problem; however, when it comes to resolve them, they too rely on Ayurveda and yoga exercises. It is too easy to advise someone that don’t stay stressful or don’t get angry but the question is how? Had it been that easy people would have done it without any fail. The answer is – to control these things one has to be take some external help in the form of herbs, massages, and exercises.
Ayurveda and Yoga is for complete healing from within and external. It helps you achieve the overall balance of energies. It is this imbalance of energies which is the root cause of all health related issues. I would like to end with quote from Sebastian Pole –
“Because we cannot scrub our inner body we need to learn a few skills to help cleanse our tissues, organs, and mind. This is the art of Ayurveda.”
