Modern Medicines and Ayurveda
Ayurvedically, the process of disease starts in the energy body of a human being. The mind is oblivious to this change and allows the person to alter their natural rhythm and habits. In this ignorance the mind inevitably dips into a low energy and morbid factors enter deep into the tissues. The process of change upsets the conscious networking and disease enters into the healthy body.
The process of impaired awareness begins in the unconscious mind as we engage our self in incorrect lifestyle patterns. Slowly the TAMAS forces (also known as stagnant/ bad energy, bacteria, and viruses) take over our activities & thought patterns. Initially we cannot see the effects & causes, & we only become aware of the subjective symptoms once our vital organs or physical body is affected.
Most of us are familiar with visiting a modern medicine (allopathic) health care provider when we feel ill. Such providers diagnose the sickness and determine what has caused it. The treatment offered is geared towards selecting a technique/product that battle with the pathogens. Invariably the same procedures, medicines and doses are used for all those battling the same illness. By comparison Ayurvedic diagnosis and subsequent treatments differ from this western process in that the diagnosis is based not only on the disease level but also on individual patient level. Each patient differs from the next. This detailed examination helps the Ayurvedic doctor to not only diagnose the disorder, but individualise and tailor-make the treatment for each patient. Ayurvedic medication is natural, herbal-based and completely non-toxic. Most medications are drawn from plant extracts. They are manufactured in India and exported under strict supervision of the health ministry. It is important to note that natural medicines which are used are made up of the herbs and minerals which also constitute our body. That is why there are no side-effects. Besides this, Ayurveda is not just a medical system. Rather it incorporates various aspects such as healing, energy, kindness, compassion, cooking, music, beauty and colours.
Below are some of the most common ailments patients continue to suffer from the improper diagnosis and treatment from allopathic health care. If you see your ailment, or if it is not listed below, contact Dr Ram today for a consultation and start the journey back to balance and health.
Ayurveda for day to day problems.
Flue, indigestion, food allergy, constipation, stress, sinus etc. are the common health situations. Ayurvedic treatment for these common problems is curative as well as preventive.
Ayurveda for chronic disease
Hypertension, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, anaemia, obesity and cholesterol are chronic ailments. If you ask your conventional doctor “For how long do I need to take this chronic medication?” There is no answer.
In Ayurveda we deal with the root cause and try to decrease the dependency on chronic medicines.
Ayurveda For Auto Immune Disorders.
Addison’s Disease, Celiac Disease, Graves’ Disease, Hashimoto’s Disease, IBS, Multiple Sclerosis, Psoriasis, Raynaud’s Phenomenon, Rheumatoid Arthritis,Scleroderma, Sjögren’s Syndrome, Lupus, Thyroid, Multiple Sclerosis, Morphea, Pityriasis Lichenoides Chronic and many more. These are called immunity diseases. Modern medicine uses cortisone and other immunosuppressant drugs to treat such disorders. But these are not the answer because in long term these drugs cause lots of problems besides dependency.
Ayurvedically these disorders constitute bio-spiritual conditions in which our cells lose their memory and do not recognise fellow cells. This then disturbs the normal functions and natural rhythm of our being. Ayurveda treatments are aimed to improve awareness and cellular intelligence.
Ayurveda and hormonal imbalance.
Hormones act like tiny messengers in our being. They are responsible for carrying messages from the physical body to the energy body as well as to our emotional and spiritual levels.
Adrenal Disorders, Hyperparathyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Hyperparathyroidism, Hypothyroidism, Low Testosterone, Menopause, Osteoporosis, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, Reproduction, Turner, infertility, and low sex drive are the common examples of hormonal disorder.
In Ayurveda, we consider hormones as our chakra points (energy centres) which take care of the harmony with our relationships … relationships not only between our own different systems but also between us and nature, between us and our belongings, between us and our emotions. As long as that relationship is in harmony, all hormones will be normal.
Ayurveda and psychology-Anxiety, depression psychosis have become common now days.
A beautiful word “AVASAADA” is described in Ayurveda. Literally it means you are not here. If you are living in the future you experience anxiety; if you are living in the past, you are depressed; and if you swing between living in the past and the future it gives rise to Psychosis. Mano-Chktisa is a special branch of Ayurveda that deals with human mind and problems.
Ayurveda and skin.
Moles, chickenpox, acne. , ashes, hives, Eczema, Sunburn, Allergy dermatitis are considered as skin diseases. In Ayurveda, the skin simply reflects our insides. The skin simply reflects our systemic toxins. To treat the cause is the aim.
Ayurveda and children.
ADHD, slow milestones, learning disability, and addictions are modern children sicknesses, besides the common problems.
Ayurvedic adopts a holistic approach towards the child. Each child is individually evaluated and treated.
Ayurveda and vet.
Our animals and pets can also benefit from the alternative and natural supplements. Ayurveda veterinary medicine focuses on animal welfare. Combinations of herbal products balance the energy of other herbs and lead to a balanced product.
