What are the treatment methods in Ayurveda?

Ayurveda believes that human beings and nature should be in perfect harmony and that disease occurs when the equilibrium between these two is disrupted. Restoration of this fundamental balance, through the use of nature and its products is the main goal of this medical system. The concept is not just on curing bodily ailments but also on preventing it.

Ayurveda explains that humans like the whole Universe are made up of each of the five elements - air space, fire, water and earth as well as the soul. In other words the body is a microcosm of the Universe. These elements in their biological form make up the three doshas. The mass of body, sense organs, mind and soul is called as life. Maintaining the balanced state of dosha's, body, mind and soul and removal of diseases is the main aim of ayurveda.

Ayurveda treatments are person specific rather than disorder specific. The age of the patient, the climate in which he lives, his cultural and social surroundings and his bodily constitution are taken into account before offering a prognosis. Touch, inspection and interrogation are the main tools of diagnosis. Then the physician emphasizes a regimen of diet with the use of herbal medicines. Herbs are used to eliminate excesses and strengthen deficiencies. The primary ayurvedic treatment method is to stimulate particular organic functions with the help of various forms of ayurvedic massages. Thus Ayurveda aims to solve many health problems, only through the adjustment of diet and therapeutic massages -so there are no distressing side effects. Such an approach has proven effective over the centuries and has today become an internationally acclaimed form of healing, rejuvenation and healthy living.

Ayurvedic treatment methods do not aim towards suppressing the main symptoms of an ailment and creating some new ones as side effects of the main treatment. The main aim of Ayurveda treatment  is to remove the root cause of the ailment and provide permanent relief.

 There are four main classifications of management of disease in Ayurveda: shodan, or cleansing; shaman or palliation; rasayana, or rejuvenation; and satvajaya, or mental hygiene.

The treatment methods mainly contains of powders, tablets, decoctions, massages with medicated oils and powders all prepared from natural herbs, plants and minerals. Since the medicines are all from natural sources and not synthetic, they are easily accepted and assimilated in the body without generating any side effects instead there are alays some or other benefit to the body.

In the Ayurvedic treatment method along with medicine, proper diet, exercise and living style is also recommended. Following this regime  is equally important. If you are taking a ayurvedic medicine or therapy to remove the root cause of a disease but are not following the prescribed diet, lifestyle and exercise  regime then you will never be able to get the complete benefit of the ayurvedic treatment.

The Ayurvedic Treatment methods include:

Dietary Regimen: - Proper selection of diet is necessary to avoid dosha imbalance and is also used as a treatment in many diseases.

Yoga: a proper exercise regime especially yoga plays an important role in the treatment in disease.

Panch Karma: This therapy is also used as a treatment in many diseases. This "panchkarma" or Five Step internal cleansing method, is one of the most profound therapy in Ayurveda.

 You will find that all the ayurvedic treatment methods are based on simple and natural principles. The Ayurvedic approach to an illness is holistic and therefore the Ayurvedic treatment methods makes a person feel rejuvenated and improved in the physical, mental and psychological state. Ayurveda treatments can be very safely used to promote good health, prevent diseases and acquire longevity.
