Ayurvedic treatments differ from the majority of conventional cures in its unique approach towards healing. As it is a non-invasive form of healing, it can be used along with the conventional cures. The principle of treating the sick and not the sickness is central to all forms of ayurvedic treatments. Rather than trying to cure a disease in isolatation, ayurveda takes into account an individual in his entirety. The purpose of all ayurvedic remedies and herbal medicines is to keep the doshas or the humors in equilibrium, since an imbalance indicates a disease condition. Specialized ayurvedic remedies such as panchakarma, marma chikitsa, dhara or following an ayurvedic diet, basically endeavor to restore the harmony of the tridoshas.
The panchakarma Ayurvedic Treatment stands out as the primary purification and detoxification treatment of Ayurveda. Panchakarma means the ‘five therapies’. These 5 therapeutic means of eliminating toxins from the body are Vamana, Virechana, Nasya, Basti and Raktamoskshana. This series of five therapies help remove deep rooted stress and illness causing toxins from the body while balancing the doshas.
Ayurvedic Treatment is the removal of the root cause of ailments leading to permanent relief. It takes into consideration the body, mind and soul of an individual as the unit for diagnosis. Hence, it recognizes negative emotions like anger, fear, insecurity, jealousy and greed as incorrect thinking on the part of an individual.
