About Ayurveda

 

“AYURVEDA??? the knowledge of life originated from the incessant meditation of sages who lived 5000 years ago. The sages attributed their knowledge of Ayurveda for the sake of living beings. So Ayurveda is not only for human beings but also for animals and trees. For example Hasthi Ayurveda is for elephants, Aswa Ayurveda for horses, Pakshi Ayurveda for birds, Vriksha Ayurveda for trees.

Ayur in Sanskrit means “life” and veda stands for “knowledge” or “wisdom”. The “wisdom of life” describes what is appropriate or inappropriate, what brings happiness or misery, what is good or bad for your personal flow of energies and herewith your longevity.

Supporting the natural balance in your body system, to harmonize the flow of energies is the aim when preventing and healing thru Ayurveda.

At the heart of Ayurveda is the belief that the human body is a microcosm of the universe. The universe is build up of the five elements of nature: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and  Earth. These five elements are divided in three Doshas (body constitution);  Vata (Ether & Air), Pita(Fire & Water) and Kapha (Water & Earth). An imbalance of the Doshas can provoke ailments. The “wisdom of life” describes the natural healing.

Alongside the ayurvedic rejuvenation therapies your diet and relaxation act a part in achieving your inner balance.

“SIDDHA???, just as Ayurveda, originated in South India. The knowledge of Sidha is attributed to the Sage Agasthyamuni. Sidha medicine for treating animals and birds is known as “Mattu vaidyam??? and for plants is called “Moolikai Maruthwam???. The difference between Ayurveda and Sidha is in the mode of preparation of medicines.

“YOGA??? is also an ancient knowledge attributed to the Sage Patanjali.
All of these ancient Indian health sciences explain health as;
“Samadosha samagnischa samadhathu malakriya prasanna athma indriya mana swastha ithyabhidheeyathe”.
A being is said to be healthy when dosha (vata, pitta and kapha), agni (the fire or enzymes for digestion and metabolism) and dhathu (tissues) are in a balanced state, with proper functioning of elimination of mala (wastes) and cheerful state of soul, sensory and motor organs and mind.

All these health sciences are based upon Indian philosophy which logically explains that Sattva (purity), Rajas (activity) and Tamas (inertia) are the primary or natural qualities responsible for the creation of all the substances in the universe and from which the five microcosmic elements called “Panchamahabhuthas” derived.  Those are the causative factor for the gross body. Sattva, Rajas and Tamas themselves are the qualities of mind. The five elements (Ether or space – Akasa, Air – Vayu, Fire – Agni, Water – Jalam and Earth – Prithvi) in turn create the Thridoshas (vata, pitta, kapha). Thridoshas carry out all the anatomical, physiological and mental functions in the gross body, including the character determination which is said to be the constitution or “Prakriti”. The elemental structure of each dosha and the character are as follows;
VATA – ETHER AND AIR ( dry, light in weight, cold, rough, subtle, unsteady). Responsible for all voluntary and involuntary activities.
PITTA – FIRE (slightly oily, sharp, hot, light in weight, bad smell, free flowing, liquidy) Responsible for digestion and metabolism.
KAPHA – WATER AND EARTH (oily, cold, heavy, slow in action, smooth, stable). Responsible for anatomical structure and firmness.
Prakruthi or constitution is also analysed on the basis of characters of Dosha. Majority is categorised as dual types (vatapitta, vatakapha, kaphapitta). Some are single types (vata, pitta, kapha). Very rarely we see balanced types (vatapittakapha). Among these,single types are poor, dual types are moderate and balanced are best.

Due to the different configuration of dosha each person differs from another. That is why persons with similar disease are advised to take different medicine and diet.
AGNI means the fire or enzymes which helps in digestion and metabolism. They are:
Ayurveda & Sidha          Modern
Jataragni                             Gastric juice
Dhathwagni                       Hormones
Bhuthagni                           Enzymes
Dhathu                                 Tissues.

There are seven tissues in the body which are as follows;-
Ayurveda                            Modern                     Sidha
Rasa                                       Plasma                        Oonee
Raktha                                  Blood                          Cheneer
Mamsa                                  Muscle                       Oon
Medas                                   Fat                                Koluppu
Asthi                                      Bone                            Elumbu
Majja                                     Marrow                      Elumbu Majja
Suklm                                   Semen and ovary   Suklam
Mala                                      Wastes

There are three ways to excrete the waste from the body;
Ayurveda&Sidha           Modern
Mutra                                   Urine
Sakrut                                  Stool
Sweda                                  Sweat

Each of these basic structures has its own quantity, quality and functions which in its normalcy is conductive to health. They sometimes undergo increase or decrease, which leads to ill-health.
The basic reason for the imbalance of dosha is said to be due to the inadequate, improper or excess union of season (climate), objects of sensory organs and activities.

SEASON is counted as six according to Indian climate.
January 15 – March 15 Sisira (cold , dewy season)
March 15 – May 15 Vasantha (Spring season)
May 15 – July 15 Grishma (Summer season)
July 15 – September 15 Varsha (Rainy)
September 15 – November 15 Sarath (Autumn)
November 15 – January 15 Hemantham (Winter)
In Kerala the rainy season is twice. June, July and August, which is considered a good time to do a Panchakarma treatment to balance the doshas. The other is from mid October to mid November.

OBJECTS OF SENSE ORGANS are those which are perceptible by the sense organs, including food. Food is an essential part of Ayurveda because the tastes have influence on Tridosha. The five elements are the basic components of tastes also as well as Tridoshas which are as follows;
Madhura – Sweet (Earth and Water)
Amla – Sour (Fire and Earth)
Lavana – Salty (Water and Fire)
Thiktha – Bitter (Ether and Air)
Katu – Pungent or spicy (Fire and Air)
Kashaya – Astringent (Earth and Air)
Sweet, Sour, Salty increase Kapha and decrease Vata
Bitter, Pungent, Astringent increase Vata and decreases Kapha
Sour, Salty, Pungent increases Pitta
Sweet, Bitter, Astringent decrease Pitta.
The condition of human body depends on the continuous interaction between internal and external factors. Environmental factors include the nature of the land, water and various atmospheric phenomena such as temperature, humidity, wind, rain and snow, duration of the seasons and climates. Food and its proper digestion in our systems is considered vital to maintain a reasonable balance of the three doshas. Food is digested by the agni (heat/fire) within us just as it is cooked by agni (heat/fire) outside. According to Ayurveda, there is a “stimulus-response??? relation between the agni within us and the outside agni—the sun. When the agni outside is strong (i.e. summer) the agni inside us (the digestive energy) is weak and vice-versa. Based on this principle, the Indian food customs (even festival delicacies) and of course, the diet and lifestyle regimen (Dinacharya and Ritucharya) of ayurveda have been adapted to seasonal changes.

There is a clear explanation regarding daily regimens and seasonal regimens to keep the body healthy. Daily regimens include Oil massage, exercises like yoga, Powder Massage, bath etc. Seasonal regimens include special food intake, therapies, purification processes etc.
For keeping the mind healthy one should avoid chances of increasing Rajas and Tamas. Negative emotions like anger, fear, insecurity, jealousy, greed etc., affect mental health. The food which imbalances the Thridoshas also affects the mind. Mental illness will affect the strength of the body as the hot ghee in the pot.
Suppression of urges of flatus, faeces, urine, sneeze, thirst, hunger, sleep, cough, breathing on exertion, yawn, vomiting also will cause different illness.
The cure includes proper food, different therapies which are part of Panchakarma (the elimination processes), Yoga and medicines.
Indian health science is the only health science that gives such a deep explanation regarding health and illness.
We bow down before the knowledge of the sages and are very happy to serve our guests with the essence of Ayurveda, Sidha and Yoga, which are working together.
