One of the most famous holistic treatments is the massage with Ayurvedic oils, but what is the Indian Ayurvedic medicine exactly? Let’s discover together the secrets of medicine which has more than five thousand years of history.
History of Indian Ayurvedic medicine
Now famous all over the world, Ayurveda is traditional Indian medicine with very ancient origins, the word is formed by Ayur meaning longevity, and Veda meaning revealed consciousness. It is a medicine that bases its principles on the knowledge of the body and its link with the spirit because a healthy long life is the result of harmony of the body, environment, and soul.
We must not think of Ayurveda as a medical practice to cure an illness because it is a large system of which the prevention aspect has a fundamental role so to guarantee a long life and improve your health with full respect of your whole body.
The first documentation on Ayurvedic Indian medicine can be found in the Carakasaṃhitā, a document written during the Empire of Kanishka, it contains up to five hundred medical principles, but with a closer look, we can see that the origins of Ayurvedic medicine are deeply tied to Indian mythology where it would seem that this antique medical system is connected to Brahma, the divinity that created the universe.
Legend says the principles of Ayurveda where created by the divinity that decided to donate the “science of life” to their son Prajapati, the god of creatures and protector of life. The Heritage then passed from Prajapati to the ancient Ashwin Dakhsha and then to god Indra who gave them to his four disciples: Bharadvaja, Atreya, Kasyapa, and Dhanvantari in order to relieve human suffering.
According to the principles of Ayurveda, the body is formed by three doshas, which are three vital energies, the balance, or lack thereof, influence the body’s health. Each dosha is formed by two elements called panca-mahabhutani, and determined qualities called guna.
The three doshas are recognized with three names:
- Vats: made of space, akasha, and air, vāyu. This dosha is connected to everything concerning the human body’s movement, like breathing and circulation. It is located in the colon and among its quality there is freshness, dryness, lightness, thinness, mobility, roughness, fluidity, sharpness and hardness.
- Pitta: made of fire, tejas, and water, jala, it is the dosha that concerns physical and mental digestion. It resides in the small intestine and it’s qualities are lightness, heat, thinness, mobility, sharpness, softness, smoothness and fluidity.
- Kapha: is the dosha made of water, jala, and earth, prithvi, it’s connected to cohesion and body flows. It’s qualities are: coldness, heavy ness, humidity, stability, softness, opacity, smoothness and density.
Why use Ayurvedic medicine? Among the benefits there is the reduction of stress and anxiety, regaining health faster after an illness, help in weight loss and maintaining the physique. Ayurveda also helps to reduce abdominal swelling, it reduces insomnia, it is a positive influence for hormonal balance and it purifies the organism making skin more healthy and luminous.
