This ancient science of medicine & positive health, first originated in India, is still relevant and beneficial to modern life. Not just a system of preventive medicine, Ayurveda emphasizes a healthful & enlightened lifestyle a concept that’s gaining wide acceptance across the globe.Ayurveda, from time immemorial focussed on anti-aging and rejuvenation programmes to prevent disease process and to maintain an optimum healthy state. This is recommended for anyone above the age of 40 for 14-21 days anually and any one above 60 years for 21 days anually.

Ayurveda is not man made but is believed to be divine gift. It is for us to study, seek, search and take the benefits from the treasure of knowledge. Ayurvedic treatment does not mean suppressing the main symptoms and creating some new ones as side effects of the main treatment. It is to remove the root cause and give 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 mainly comprises of powders, tablets, decoctions, medicated oils etc. prepared from natural herbs, plants and minerals. Because the medicines are from natural sources and not synthetic, they are accepted and assimilated in the body without creating any side effects and on the other hand, there may be some side benefits.
According to Ayurvedic medicine, human body consists of three primary life forces or biological humors, which are Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. These three doshas are called the tridoshas. A balance among these life forces is essential for proper health. Any imbalance among the tridoshas causes a state of unhealthiness or disease. It is only required that we bring back normalcy to the balance of these doshas, to bring back the state of healthiness.
Ayurved emphasizes on preventing and curative medicines.
So there are two aspects of Ayurvedic Treatment-
1.Curing of diseases.
2.Prevention of diseases.
Shamana Chikithsa – Manages the symptoms of the disease and treats the cause of the disease with the help of various Ayurveda medicine and therapies, particularly when the disease is at an early stage.
Shodana chikithsa- It is an internal purification process. Purification can be used to cure diseases and at the same time to promote the healthy state of the body. Shodana chikitsa removes the Ama and Mala (toxins) from the body and restores the balance of the Doshas. Shodana Chikitsa consists of a three-stage purification process as follows:
Purva Karma – preparatory purification prior to the main purification.
Pradhana Karma – the main five purification methods (known as Panchakarma treatment)
Paschath Karma – post rejuvenation therapy.
The Important procedures in ayurveda are Shamana therapy, Pathya Vyavastha, Nidan Parivarjan, Satvavajaya, Rasayana therapy.
