Ayurveda

March 26, 2012

Did you know that Ayurveda is probably the oldest healing system in the world? It was born in India more than 5.000 years ago, in the Vedic era, and has a strong relationship with yogic philosophy. Ayurveda has influenced many systems of medicine throughout history, from ancient Greece to Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The Ayurveda treatises they explain that the knowledge was transmitted from a higher spiritual level, and that the sages explained in poetic/metaphorical language what quantum physicists are discovering today. Impressive! According to Ayurveda, the energy of people is composed of five elements: earth, air, fire, water and ether. And from there originate dosha (metabolic body types that are born from the combination of the elements). The dosha They are classified into three large groups:Wadding: It is composed of ether and air. It is related to lightness and movement. -Pitta: is made up of fire. It is related to metabolic processes aimed at producing energy, for example, digestion. -Kapha: It is made up of land and water. It is associated with structure and stability. Thus, these three types of pure energy or dosha They are combined in different ways in each person, giving physical, metabolic, psychological contexts, etc. different. What happens when one or more of the dosha are unbalanced? Well, what do we accumulate? toxins in the body and in the mind that will give way to the disease. The therapist in this case tries to see what has caused the imbalance, and through different dietary guidelines, herbs and other techniques such as Ayurvedic massage, helps the person recover it. Contrary to the Western view, the Ayurvedic therapist will never see someone who comes to his office as sick. In the first place he considers himself as a companion of the person on his own path of discovery of health, which on the other hand he never lost, since he was only out of balance. Interesting opening argument, right? Irune
