Benefits of a Complete Ayurveda Treatment in India
Yoga today has become a popular therapeutic approach to improving the quality of a person’s mental, emotional, and physical state. However not a lot of people are aware of the fact that Yoga is only one part of the holistic treatment method to improve the mind and body balance – the other part and equally important is the practice of Ayurveda.
A 5000 year old natural healing technique, Ayurveda aims at eradicating ailments through addressing three of the basic components that the body is made up of – fire (pita), air (vata), and water (kapha). Practitioners of medicine and alternative therapies both agree on the fact that a human body is made up of elements and chemicals, and also that energy – both external and the one emitted by the body – has a profound effect on our psychological and physiological health. The Ayurvedic approach harmonizes and brings a balance in these elements; consequently causing a marked improvement in the overall health.
Benefits of Ayurveda
Literally translated to mean ‘the science of life’, Ayurveda promises both preventive and curative treatment options for a number of ailments. Like modern medicinal procedures, Ayurvedic treatment too is characterized by an overall individual approach based on the adage that one size does not fit all. Ayurveda sessions are tailor-made to suit an individual’s lifestyle, preferences, and requirements.
