Reliving 5,000 years of Indian tradition with Ayurveda

October 1, 2012

Ayurveda is a system of traditional medicine practiced by the Hindus for the last 5,000 years. Even with the presence of medical technology, many people still attest to Ayurveda’s effectuality, and it continues to be practiced, with modern medicine acknowledging it as a form of alternative medicine that may complement modern treatment to achieve empirical results.

The practice of Ayurveda works under the premise that each individual has an innate constitution or dosha, which may either be vata, pitta, kapha, or a combination of any of the three. Practitioners and advocates claim it to be the science of balance and longevity—thus, one of the main goals of Ayurvedic Therapy is to maintain a healthy balance among the dosha, as it will eventually bring about mental and physical well-being.

How an Ayurvedic session goes

A session begins by asking the patients regarding their appetite, bowel movements, and other pertinent questions to explain the dosha. The practitioner will then prescribe the patient a diet regimen that is primarily intended to bring back the body to its original homeostasis. This may include some herbal concoctions or dietary restrictions that the patient must steadfastly abide to.

The practitioner then proceeds to the most important part of the therapy—detoxification. Ayurvedic principles claim that an imbalance in the dosha may create toxic by-products, causing adverse body reactions. The detoxification process begins with a vigorous massage that loosens the toxins inside the body, followed by a full-body steam where the oils from the massage dilate pores so that the elimination of the toxins may be expedited.

The last part of the therapy is an exercise of mental rejuvenation where warm oil is poured over the forehead—shedding away anxiety, promoting relaxation, and calming the nervous system in the process.
