Benefits Of Ayurveda


Ayurveda is the well-known ancient Hindu traditional holistic system of medicine dating back to almost 5000 years. It originates from two Sanskrit words – “Ayur” meaning life, and “Veda” meaning knowledge. It concentrates mainly on health and wellness through practices like Yoga, Herbal Medicine, Massage, and Meditation. According to Ayurveda, each individual has a combination of any of the three life forces which include Vata Dosha, Kapha Dosha, and Pitta Dosha, wherein one of the three forces play the dominating role. If that particular dominating Dosha is identified and balanced accordingly, all the health-related problems of an individual can be eliminated.

Unlike Allopathic treatment, the Ayurvedic medical system can be very effective but does not create any side effects in the body. However, it should be noted that Ayurvedic treatment does not cure any illness in a short span of time, as in case of Allopathic treatment. In order to understand, how Ayurveda is very beneficial for a human body, let’s take a look at various benefits of Ayurveda and why you should avoid Allopathic treatment:


Hormonal Balance

As natural herbs and extracts are used in Ayurvedic treatments, a human body can be treated in a more natural way. Researchers have proved that essential oils can be used as an effective way of treating any hormonal imbalance in the body. Moreover, in Ayurvedic treatment, no chemicals are used in any medicinal formulation. That being said, any hormonal imbalance can be treated in a natural way without causing any type of side effects. Especially in case of women, Ayurvedic treatment can be very effective for treating abnormal menstrual cycle which is caused by hormone imbalance.

Treating High Blood Pressure

 High Blood pressure has become much common in modern society due to which people do not take it more seriously. It is worth noting that high blood pressure can cause sudden heart attack, kidney failure, heart failure, coronary heart diseases, etc., that can very much risk the life of an individual. When we take a look at the root cause of high blood pressure in a human body, it is caused by the accumulation of fats and impurities on the inner walls of blood vessels. Ayurvedic treatment does not only prevent the latest fat accumulations but also eliminates the existing accumulations in a natural way. Moreover, it also prescribes a nutritional diet that can prevent any future chances of accumulation.

Eliminating Impurities From Body

Any presence of impurities in your can cause various health-related problems like poor body growth, stress, and can affect the overall bodily function. Ayurveda provides a treatment known as Panchkarma which can help in eliminating the impurities present in the body. Using various essential oils and massage therapies, all the impurities are released from the body, cleansing the entire body from tissue level up to the intestinal levels. This method of treatment improves digestion, respiration, and psychological capabilities, which in turn improve the overall functionality of the body.

Treating Immune Disorders

 The capability of resisting various illnesses can be determined by the immune system of a particular human body. Stronger the immune system more will be the strength to resist various illnesses and diseases. Ayurveda provides a complete package of various natural herbs, vitamins, and minerals that can be very useful for improving the defense system of your body. Unlike other allopathic medicines, consumption of Ayurvedic vitamins and minerals do not result in any sort of kidney stones.

Treating Body Imbalance

Ayurveda focuses on the entire body of an individual and treats it both for internal as well as external illnesses. A simple practice of spiritual activities can recalibrate the body and maintain the overall body balance. This will then result in eliminating all the internal and external diseases like stress, poor nutrition, and other health issues.

Treating Diabetes

 Millions of people from all around the world suffer from Diabetes. That being the reason, medicines made of chemicals are widely consumed by these patients throughout the world. But it is worth noticing that even if these chemicals cure diabetes up to a great extent, but they can also cause various side effects like low blood sugar, skin rashes, weight gain, dizziness, bloating, diarrhea, etc. On the other hand, Ayurveda suggests certain changes in the lifestyle along with some natural medicines (like Aloe vera, Holy Basil, Ginseng, Curcumin, Cinnamon, etc.) and diet. This not only treats diabetes but also prevents any side effects on the body.

Isn’t it very strange that nature has itself provided various cost-effective methods to treat various diseases, but still we opt for expensive and harmful modern medical procedures? One must understand that Ayurveda is not a new medical practice, rather it is thousands of years old, which proves its genuineness. So, next time your body is upset with you, give a try to Ayurveda and gift yourself a happy and healthy life.
