Treatment

Ayurvedic treatment focuses more on bringing a balance in the health of an individual rather than treating the disease. By promoting the overall health, Ayurveda indirectly prevents the disease and cures the sickness. An ayurvedic health system is a holistic approach that considers all the factors and not just the disease.

Ayurvedic treatments work on the three doshas theory which includes vata, pitta and kapha. These doshas affect the human body due to several factors and one of them is a climatic change or seasonal change. When climate changes, a particular dosha may get vitiated at a particular period of change in season. To bring back the balance of these three doshas in the body, Ayurveda advises to follow various purification and medical processes called “Panchakarmas”.

Ayurveda treatment is based more on the prevention process. It involves a variety of measures that can be taken by an individual prior to the onset of any disease. Doing this can help in removing the possibility of the disease occurring in the future. This can be achieved by using medicines, suitable diet, activity and regimen for restoring the balance. Moreover, this process helps in strengthening the mechanism of the human body to prevent the recurrence of the disease.

Treatment of every disease or imbalance mainly involves three basic measures:

  • Usage of drugs/medicines
  • Particular diet
  • Prescribed activity routine

In Ayurveda, treatment options are wide-ranging and can also include yoga, acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage therapy and dietary changes.

Apart from this, Ayurveda treatment must be processed under the guidance of experts using the proper intake of high-quality drugs and food. Just like conventional treatment, Ayurveda also requires four essential things to properly remove the dosha from the body. It includes:

  • The physician: Ayurvedic practitioner/expert possessing the technical skill, scientific knowledge, and human understanding
  • The medicaments: high-quality drugs and food necessary to boost strength and immunity
  • The nursing personnel: Professional possessing good knowledge of nursing
  • The patient: A patient has to be obedient, cooperative towards physician and mentally prepared about the needs of treatment

All these things are extremely essential to properly complete an Ayurvedic treatment. The main objective of the treatment is to cleanse a human body, reduce the symptoms of the illness in order to completely remove it and restore harmony and balance in the body.
