Ayurvedic medicine or Ayurveda is the ancient, natural medicine of India. It is a science thousands of years old, tested through time and researched today.

What Is Ayurveda Really?
You may have gleaned from the media that Ayurveda has some relationship to yoga and health. That there’s some body-type diet involved. That spirituality is a big part of this movement. That somehow it has a connection to nature or herbs. This is actually a very limited and flawed view. Ayurveda is a complete, holistic medical system and spirituality has little to do with the science.

Like Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda is based on the five elements of nature and the natural laws that govern the universe. Strong digestion is the seat of all wellbeing and so diet consultation is an important aspect of healing. Homeostasis is the cornerstone to good health and a variety of methods are used to achieve that goal.

Ayurveda can help you throughout any stage of your life. It can help you maintain good health and soothe dis-eased health conditions. It can also help you prevent new health conditions from forming.

Young, old, and everyone in between can avail themselves of Ayurveda.

Practitioners of Ayurveda (Ayurvedic practitioners) are trained in disease management through proper diet, proper lifestyle, the use of herbal medicine, and unique body therapies like abhyanga massage, Netra basti, and Shirodhara.

An Ayurvedic cleansing process called panchakarma is a profound detoxification method that rids the body of excess morbidity and strengthens the cleansed tissue systems.

Ayurveda offers extensive care for the healthy, the sick, the young and old.

Education In Ayurveda
In India, Ayurvedic practitioners receive 5 years of rigorous training equivalent to western medical school. The last year is an internship year where students receive hands-on training at local ‘hospitals’. These are government-supported and private institutions that offer complete medical care.

Outside of India, training in Ayurveda is dependent on the country and its laws. Check the World Health Organization’s benchmarks for training practitioners of Ayurveda for thorough guidelines for practitioners throughout the world.

In the United States, the National Institute of Health lists Ayurveda under Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM).

If you wish to see an Ayurvedic practitioner, be sure to keep your primary care doctor informed of any changes you make to your diet or lifestyle. Ayurveda is not a substitute for primary health care. If you need to see a medical doctor, do so immediately.

How Ayurveda Works
Ayurveda works as science does – through observation, measuring, logic and inference. Branches of Ayurveda include internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and pediatrics, pharmacology, toxicology and more.

An extensive list of healing formulas and unique Ayurvedic procedures used appropriately and at the right time allowing the body to regain health.

Here’s a list of 50 health conditions Ayurveda can help with. Of course, this list is in no way comprehensive. By its nature, Ayurveda may help with a wide variety of symptoms that have not yet manifested as a particular, definable health condition.
