Ayurveda is one of the most ancient systems of health sciences, originated in India around BC 3000 and is practised throughout India. It is based on sound fundamental principles and follows unique approaches towards life, preservation of health and treatment of various diseases. In contrast to the analytical approach of western medicine, Ayurveda adopts a holistic approach to life and health. It defines health as a state of comprehensive equilibrium of all bodily functions whether it is physical or mental. Ayurveda emphasises on "health" more than "disease", and always advocates to restore the health of a patient as the means to eliminate the disease.
In the treatment of a patient, Ayurvedic physician is more concerned with the elimination of the cause of the disease and a suitable life style and diet for the patient. The use of drugs and medicaments has only a subsidiary place in an Ayurvedic prescription. In contrast, the western modern medicine is a drug and disease-oriented system. Ayurveda mostly uses natural herbal products as medicines, which are both bio-friendly and eco-friendly. By way of its holistic approaches and safe unique natural medicaments Ayurveda is very popular now a days throughout the world.
Another specialty is that most of the Ayurvedic massages and treatments can be used for the diseased people as well as the healthy people. In the diseased it cures the disease and in healthy people the same treatment helps in preserving the health.
Ayurveda also gives great emphasis to the mental and spiritual dimensions of an ailment than on its gross physical aspects. Ayurveda includes yoga and recognize the existence of vital energy systems conceived as Tridosha, which governs all the activities of a living being. Hence modalities of treatment in ancient Indian tradition vividly include a variety of non-drug energy modulating approaches, which have been gaining more and more popularity in present times. This is one of the reason we included some of the holistic complimentary therapies like Reiki, Pranic healing, Energy link healing system and Color therapy in our training programs.
The globalization of Ayurveda has also helped it to be in the mainstream of world medicine. With The fast-growing global order, all knowledge of Ayurveda is now known through out the world. People are interested to know more about it and also practise it as a complementary medicine throughout the world. Thus there is a need for good authentic training program on Ayurveda for those aspiring students.
At present a number of Ayurvedic Treatment centers have started in different parts of India especially in tourist places. But most of them lack trained therapists to carry out different Ayurvedic treatments and massages. So people are not getting the proper Ayurvedic treatments if they goes to those centers, and ultimately this can lead to misunderstanding about Ayurveda.
