How is Ayurveda different from modern medicine?

Modern medicine tries to treat and remove symptoms rather than treating the patient suffering from it.

Ayurveda makes special contributions by addressing the uniqueness of each patient and by helping each body to heal itself.

It is one of the oldest scientific medical systems in the world, with a long record of clinical experience.

It is also a way of life that teaches us how to maintain and protect health. It shows us both how to cure disease and how to promote longevity. Ayurveda treats man as a “whole” – which is a combination of body, mind and soul. Therefore it is a truly holistic and integral medical system.

Does Ayurvedic treatment take a long time to heal ailments?

No. This is a common misconception regarding Ayurveda. The question you have to ask yourself is: “are you looking for a quick fix or mere suppression of symptoms or are you actually seeking to dissolve the deep rooted cause of the imbalance and rejuvenate deeply?” If you are looking to get to the bottom of your imbalance then Ayurveda, in a relatively short time will begin to offer its benefits.

What are the methods of diagnosis in Ayurveda?

There are three main methods mentioned in Ayurveda for diagnosing the Dosha imbalance and disease process in a person. They are –

  • Darsana Pareeksha - By observing the patient’s physical signs and symptoms, example – color of skin, hair, eyes, behavior, body condition etc.
  • Prasna Pareeksha - By asking minute questions regarding the imbalance of each Doshas
  • Sparsana Pareeksha – By pulse diagnosis, palpation, percussion and auscultation are included in this method

What are Panchkarma procedures?

There are gentle therapeutic procedures used for complete cleansing of the body. A milder approach is to begin with an appropriated light diet for each of the three body types of constitutions, which will cleanse the digestive system. Ayurveda states that food is 60% of the medicine it uses to treat disease.

As part of your Panchkarma experience, fresh food is prepared for you every day during your program. Also, if you are interested, we will show you how to create delicious, nutritious, simple Ayurvedic meals that you can continue to enjoy in your life. When you treat the cause, imbalance, you treat the effect, disease. The purpose of Panchkarma is to support the body in creating balance, and in that way disease is addressed. These procedures actually detoxify the body through various routes.

How often to receive Panchkarma?

Each Panchkarma session expands on the previous one, healing of body, mind and emotion deeper and deeper with each consecutive year. The ancient Ayurvedic texts suggest receiving Panchkarma three times per year for optimum cleansing and rejuvenation. With every year it is truly possible to grow healthier and younger, rather than older and diseased. It is possible to grow in health and Ayurveda shows us how.

How soon will I see any results with Ayurveda?

That would depend on your particular state of health, your lifestyle, and how disciplined you are in following an Ayurvedic regime. Often times, following an Ayurvedic regime can have rather quick effects, but since Ayurveda is a holistic system and herbs act more gently and synergistically, patience and self-effort are important. As far as diet and lifestyle changes are concerned, we believe that slow change is lasting change, since trying to make radical changes all at once can often times become overwhelming. Remember that true healing and optimal health is a journey, not a one-shot deal.

Is my treatment medically supervised?

Our resident Vaidyas (Ayurveda doctors) sets up an Ayurveda treatment program and monitors your progress throughout.

Can I take allopathic medicines, including prescription drugs, and Ayurvedic herbal supplements at the same time?

Before altering the schedule of prescription medications you follow, or additionally taking Ayurvedic herbal supplements, it is always better to check with your physician or doctor. Ayurveda can be used in conjunction with Western allopathic medicine. Drugs save lives, but because of their toxicity, sometimes they can also weaken or damage the body. Ayurveda can help protect and make the body stronger after or along with drugs or surgery.
