Modern and Other Medicines Embrace Ayurveda -Ayurvedic Remedies


Ayurvedic Remedies come from primeval traditions that have been extensively used in India for 3,500 years. In its purest form Ayurveda absorbs an entire approach to life, not simply a formulary of treatments for illness. Ayurvedic medicine emphasizes disease prevention within the scaffold of one of civilization’s oldest ways of life.

In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “longevity through knowledge”. The concepts guiding ayurvedic medicine entail a five-element view of nature. In Ayurveda each person has uniquely mingled biological energies. In balance they make you healthy, but out of balance they inflict chaos on you. Applying ayurvedic therapy means applying different exercises and treatments designed to restore balance to your doshas. This later restores your health. Master Healer and ayurvedic doctor, Dr. Pankaj Naram has helped people with many health ailments like Arthritis, Autism, Diabetes, Obesity, Blood Pressure, Infertility, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome etc.

For maximum value Ayurvedic doctors like Dr. Pankaj Naram study you individually, identifying your unique ideal dosha balance. Full ayurvedic treatment means incorporating combinations of massage, yoga, meditation, diet, herbal remedies, natural cleansing, and breathing exercises into your lifestyle. Purists only acknowledge a full Ayurvedic treatment regimen, but you can still profit from Ayurvedic medicine even if you value modern science over primeval wisdom.

Consider something western medicine calls NETI, an ellipsis for Nasoendotrachial Irrigation. Modern western medicine recognizes NETI as legal symptomatic treatment for conditions such as allergies, upper respiratory infections, and sinusitis. Plainly put, NETI means preparing a salt and water solution, snorting it through your nose, and spitting it out without swallowing. Singers use NETI for blocked nasal channels. It clears them out, reinstating optimal tone to their voices. This way, ayurveda always treated head colds and some breathing maladies just as Western medicine ultimately learned to. However Ayurveda might include diverse infusions of oils or herbs, breathing exercises, heat massages or treatment, depending on specific body type and symptoms.

In instances when the prescribed treatment fails to cure the condition eternally, an Ayurvedic doctor might argue that neglecting part of the program limits general effectiveness. Most Western doctors would say the same thing about a regimen of fluids, antibiotics, and bed rest. When treating patient, Ayurvedic treatments take a holistic, comprehensive, approach. The emotional, physical and spiritual aspects are all taken into account when treating the sick. To address these characteristics of the patient, Ayurvedic remedies, such as oil, herbs, and herb massages, meditation and breathing exercises are prescribed.

In Western Medicine there are some doctors who include meditative practices mimicking Ayurveda to treat Autism or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However, patients with Autism or ADHD may require medications before such methods can be added. In such cases,  ayurveda would not likely use meditation alone either. It would include Ayurvedic remedies such as herbal therapy together with some or all the other means.

Modern science decides legitimacy by what it cannot prove wrong. Failing to prove something wrong requires experimentation, and ayurvedic medicine does not bother itself with it. Even so, when they clearly do no impairment, Western medicine is now ever more open, ever more ready to accepts Ayurvedic Remedies to enhance ‘scientific’ treatment, even without understanding how these Ayurvedic Remedies truly work.
