The Basic Principles of Ayurvedic Treatment

The essence of treatment is the removal of the cause and avoidance of causative factors.Ayurvedic treatment does not mean suppressing the main symptoms and creating some new ones as side effects of the main treatment. It is to remove the root cause and give permanent relief. The medicines for the treatment mainly comprises of powders, tablets, decoctions, medicated oils etc. prepared from natural herbs, plants and minerals. Because the medicines are from natural sources and not synthetic, they are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects and on the other hand, there may be some side benefits.

The famous Ayurvedic physician Charaka identifies four factors that are essential for successful medical treatment: The Physician, the remedy, the nurse and the patient. The physician should be an expert in theory and in practice, skilful, and pure in body and mind. Easy availability, appropriateness, utility in a variety of forms and high quality characterize the optimal remedy. The best nurse is knowledgeable, skilful, sympathetic and pure. The ideal patient is courageous, able to describe what he or she is feeling, and remembers all the physician's instructions and follows them carefully; all these qualities help the patient get well more easily.

Along with medicine, proper diet and living style is also advised. This is equally important. If we are taking a medicine to remove the root cause and at the same time, we are taking some food or following a life style, which is increasing the cause of disease, then we may not get well or will be getting less relief. Panch karma therapy is also used as a treatment in many diseases.

Most of us have many levels of toxins accumulated over a lifetime of indiscretions, all of which cannot be released at once otherwise they will over helm the excretory organs and ravage the mind. Your mind and body have become habituated to these poisons, which have become part of your equilibrium equation. Removing them all at once would seriously imbalance your physical body and confuse your mind so that you no longer felt like 'yourself' .Purifying the system is a long, slow process, requiring many cycles to expunge the many layers of dirt. You must be patient with the process and with the newly developing you, just as you would be patient with a slowly growing tree.

When you backslide and return temporarily to your old unhealthy ways, you must learn to always pick yourself up, like a child learning to walk, and begin again.

The basic principles of Ayurvedic treatment are immutable:

How they are applied differs from case to case. "Treatment is rooted in measure" : the effect of any particular therapy on any particular patient depends on its dosage, which again depends upon the climate, the doshas involved , the strength of the patient versus the strength of the disease, the patients age and constitution , the specific syndrome, the patients social environment , the goal of treatment and so on. Time cycled, including 'disease time' and the joints of seasons are especially important, because the doshas are controlled differently at different times, depending upon both external time and the disease's momentum within the microcosm.

Treatment is very individualized, and so different diseases may sometimes share a single therapy, while a single disease may be treated differently in different patients according to the measure of the factors involved.

Thus, we find that the methods of treatment are based on simple and natural principles. To conclude we can say that, Ayurveda teaches a very systematic and scientific way of life, which is important to pursue both materially and spiritually. Fundamental principles, health rules, knowledge of individual constitution of our body, use of various herbs, minerals and specially Panch Karma therapy can be very safely used by everyone, all over the world to, promote good health, prevent diseases and acquire longed.
