What is Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a branch of health science that prevents or treats health disorders with the help of natural herbs and therapies. In other words, Ayurveda is defined as a type of Alternative medicine, which is a traditional medicine system of India, used to treat ailments by emphasizing on Diet, Exercise, Herbal therapy, and medication. However, lifestyle interventions also play an important role in the therapeutic approach. According to Ayurveda, wellness of body depends upon the balance between Spirit, Mind, and Body. Ayurvedic Practitioners believe that the human body is made up of 5 important basic elements such as air, water, fire, space, and earth. The combination of all these five elements forms three life energies which are known as Doshas.

They Are Classified as:

  1. Vata
  2. Kapha
  3. Pitta

Every individual is a peculiar mix of these doshas and their strength varies depending upon the nature of these energies within. But at present, due to modern lifestyle and dietary habits, human beings are susceptible to different types of diseases whose treatment is yet to be found by the doctors of modern medicines. According to most of the Allopathic doctors, there are many diseases such as Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP), Liver cirrhosis, Ulcerative colitis, etc which are untreatable anywhere in the world. But Ayurvedic doctors, with the help of their profound belief and immense knowledge, prepared medications for such incurable diseases. This is one of the major reasons behind the increasing demand for Ayurvedic medicine across the globe. Due to the emerging demand for Ayurvedic medicines, the market is also expanding at a huge pace in recent years.
