Ayurvedic medicin is a truly holistic modality of natural medicine. It originates in India
with first written records dating back about 5000 years. Ayurveda is today practised
all over the world by trained practitioners. The principles of treatment are to
this day still the very same as can be found in the old scriptures.
Charaka and Shushruta the two main founders of Ayurveda as a categorised documented
system of health. In fact Ayurveda is the first medicine known to mankind and as such
the foundation of all modern medicin.
Ayurveda "The science of Life" is based around a number of principles. The elements
Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth are one of the core principles of Ayurveda. The Doshas,
VATA PITTA KAPHA are the constitutional types that is one of the pillars when diagnosing
and treating acording to The Ayurvedic principles. Ayurveda does not generally diagnose or treat diseases. Doshic
imbalances are being treated so as to bring the body system back to Equilibrium.
To achieve this we use the principle of opposites. We treat hot conditions with cold,
dry conditions with oily and so on.
In Ayurveda the qualities of the different Doshas are very significant and is a corner stone
in every diagnostic as well as treatment regimen.
When we are born we all have a particular Doshic combination, Vata/Kapha or Pitta/Vata or
Kapha/Pitta and so on. The different variations make up our individuality and every
body trait can be clasified as either Vata, Pitta or Kapha.
The Doshas are made up of the elements : Vata is Ether/Air Pitta is Fire/Water and Kapha is Water/Earth.
During the initial consultation we will explore how the various elements in the system are presenting. For example; if there is an imbalance in the Vata Dosha in general there will be an expression of the air element, fast movement, nervous system issues, anxiety, etc, or flatulence, wind, dry skin, dry eyes, dry stools. If on the other hand if Kapha Dosha has become imbalanced there will be an expression of cold and humid or damp. This may be seen as hyperhidrosis, water retention anywhere in the body, mucus, runny nose or eyes, congestion of lungs. For Pitta Dosha the signs would be fire so hot and redness and inflammation of any tissue. Often seen first as Hyperacidity, loose stools, diahrroea, red and inflamed eyes, infections, UTI, sinus infection etc.
At Chandana Ayurveda we treat imbalances and educate people to become aware of the early signs and symptoms of when they slip out of a balanced state. We aim to inspire people to feel passionate about their own health.
Ayurvedic medicine is very simple and common sense. Diet and lifestyle are important factors as well as stress. To rebalance treatments are used, massages, marma puncture, steambox to detox. We recommend yearly detoxes. Panchakarma is recommended at change of season, spring and autumn.
Panchakarma is the mother of all detoxes. It expels toxins and purifies all tissues and calms the mind. It will expel stress from far back and reset the clock. The digestive channel is purified and rejuvenated as in Ayurveda proper strong digestion is the most important factor to enjoying good health.
