Ayurvedic Treatment Of Diseases
Ayurvedic Holistic Therapy
Ayurveda does not only focus on herbal, acupuncture and massage therapies, it also looks into the food we are taking and see if that is the main culprit causing disharmony in our bodies. Sometimes, it is our toxic diets that is the cause of many chronic diseases, for example, diabetes. Food if taken properly can heal our illnesses as food have different tastes and color. It will induce and trigger our energies flow in our body. For instance, bitter food usually is cold in nature and it can clear heat. Therefore, as part of the holistic therapy, diets and food will be taken in account.
Treating the symptoms only without any
consideration of what causes the diseases is not the Ayurvedic way of
healing the sick person. In Ayurvedic treatment of diseases, the
herbalist will look at the body holistically, and consider what is
really throwing the body out of balance. Then
the Ayurvedic healer will tackle the sickness by eliminating the cause.
However, the healer will also put due consideration on symptomatic
treatments if there is excessive pain. Sometimes, it is important
to give immediate relief to the person but this should not be the
ultimate aim of the herbalist.
Types Of Ayurvedic Therapies For Treatment Of Ailments
The most important type of therapy is to ensure that the body is in balance, especially for the doshas. Therefore, the Ayurvedic therapist will have to study the individual body constitution properly for the matching of herbs to correct the imbalance. This may involve various cleansing therapies, internal and external, as well as surgical therapy if necessary. If it involves the mind, some form of psychotherapy and spiritual practices may be needed. Medicines meant for internal cleansing, as a rule, are used to treat diseases caused by improper diet which can include excessively rich food, food eaten at irregular hours, stale food and so on. External cleansing which has a curative effect includes massage, fomentation and unction and entails external contact with the body. Surgical therapy comprises excision, incision, puncturing, scraping, uprooting, rubbing with a rough surfaced substance, suturing, probing and application of leeches and alkalies.
