Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ayurved?
Ayurved, originated in India, is an ancient healing system. “Ayu” means Life and “Veda” means knowledge. Ayurved originated as part of ‘Vedic Science’. The fundamentals of Ayurved can be found in all the Vedic scriptures viz. Rugveda, Atharvaveda, Yajurved and Samaved. This is an integral spiritual science devised to give a comprehensive understanding of the entire universe and universal laws.
How does it differ from Allopathy?
Ayurved is a complete and independent science by itself. It has its own concepts of human anatomy, physiology, pathology and treatment. Ayurvedic philosophy encompasses the living and the non-living. Ayurved, traditionally involves a holistic treatment of the human keeping its cosmic nature in mind.As ayurved has its own views about a diseases process, which is different from that proposed by modern medicine (allopathy), the treatment of a particular ailment is unique by itself. Allopathic medicine typically treats all individuals with the same disease exactly the same way. Allopathic physicians often prescribe a medication to alleviate physical symptoms. Ayurved looks at the root cause of the disease/illness and removes it from the body - specific to the patient. This will help prevent recurrent health problems and make the body strong enough to fight off disease.
Can Ayurved treat chronic diseases like asthma, arthritis, skin diseases etc?
Ayurved can provide better solution for chronic diseases like asthma, arthritis, skin diseases than many conventional allopathic treatments available today.. Correct use of Ayurvedic medicine can provide symptomatic as well as long-term benefits in diseases. When used correctly, Ayurvedic medicine does not produce any negative side effects and are very safe for long-term use. In fact, with many diseases, allopathic medicines have to be used by increasing dosage with many undesirable side effects. For example, some arthritic drugs on the market today contain cancer-causing ingredients. These drugs may reduce pain and inflammation, however they do not get to the root cause of the disease and often cause other illness and disease down the road.
