Ayurveda is considered to be one of the most valuable contributions of India to the world. It has been an integral part of the Indian culture for more than three thousand years. Ayurveda (आयुर्वेद) in Sanskrit means ‘the knowledge of life‘.
The definition of Ayurveda as given in one of the famous Ayurvedic textbooks Charaka Samhitha
(Soothrasthanam) is as follows:
HITHAAHITHAM SUKHAM DUKHAM
MAANAM CHA THATHCHA YATHROKTHAM
AYURVEDA SSA UCHYATHE.
The science that describes what is appropriate and inappropriate, a happy or unhappy life, and the guidelines for a long life is known as Ayurveda. It is considered as the auxiliary limb (upaveda – उपवेद) of Atharva Veda. The Vedas (Totally 4 i.e. Rig, Yajus, Sama, Atharva) are the earliest forms of documented knowledge of ancient India, which are considered to be the root of Indian culture.
Ayurveda assumes fundamental continuity between all elements of the universe and as a natural extension of this ideology, perceives man as an integral part of nature. Ayurveda underscores the basic common factors seen in man and nature and attempts to explain human life in its totality. It starts by stating that “Purusha” (the individual being) is a blend of the mind, soul, sense organs, and body. The structural and functional units of the human body are categorized and represented in Ayurveda in terms of bio physicochemical energies of the living body (Tridoshas), Tissues (Dhatus), and metabolic end products (Malas).
Health is defined by Ayurveda as a state wherein the dynamic balance of the doshas, dhatus and malas are maintained, the metabolism is at optimum level and the mind, soul and sense organs assume sublime position. Ayurveda essentially emphasizes a holistic vision of life
SAMADOSHA SAMAGNISCHA SAMADHATHU MALAKRIYA
PRASANNATHMENDRIYA MANA SWASTHA ITHYABHIDHEEYATHE.
This definition is in full consonance with the integral vision of health as envisaged by the World Health Organisation.
According to Ayurveda, the human body is composed of 5 basic elements known as Pancha Mahabhutas which includes Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, and Space. The recognition of this identical elemental basis of the human body and outside world has profound implications in the practice of medicine.
Diseases are the manifestations of disturbance of equilibrium of body constituents including Doshas, Dhatus and Malas. According to Ayurveda, medication when well administered, acts as an equalizer of increased or decreased elements to keep the equilibrium of the body.
The maintenance of positive health and treatment of diseases are the two main objectives of Ayurveda. On the basis of these objectives, it can be divided into two parts; the healthy man’s regime and the patient’s regime.
The healthy man’s regime includes systematic daily routines, the lifestyle to be observed in different seasons, healthy diet and balanced exercise. Ayurveda targets preventive medication through these routines. Prakshalanadhi pankasya dooradasparsanam varam is an expression that means it is better to avoid dirt than to wash it off, implying prevention is better than cure.
The patient’s regime provides for the curative and palliative measures. The therapeutic approach is focused not only on the disease as such, but directed at the patient as a whole.
