Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian medicine system that uses different kinds of treatments and techniques. The word Ayurveda is derived from an Indian word, where Ayur means life and veda means knowledge. It is an ancient Indian medicine system that began 5,000 years ago. Therapies for Ayurveda are based on complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances. Ancient Ayurveda texts also taught surgical techniques, including rhinoplasty, kidney stone extractions, sutures, and the extraction of foreign objects for Ayurvedic Practitioners. The main goal of Ayurveda is promoting good health, but not fighting diseases. There are 3 main elements known as doshas. 

 

  • Vata dosha (air and space) which allows movement
  • Pitta dosha (fire and water) which allows for change and handles digestion and metabolism
  • Kapha dosha (water and earth) which gives structure or cohesion
