Hyms and charms of Ayurveda

Ayurveda, the mother of all medical systems, proves the saying ‘old is gold’. It is 5000 years old and helps in some great cures. It does not emphasize on fighting specific diseases as such but focuses on the well-being of the whole system, and helps to develop total good health. In medical science too, despite the many branches, it is said that there is one ultimate medical system from which every other system arises. This ultimate medicine system is Ayurveda. While biology and modern medical science deal with knowledge and remedies of specific diseases, Ayurveda deals with every aspect of life – dharma (essential duties as per status or position), artha (wealth or goals), karma (actions and obligations) and moksh (liberation from every bondage).

Western Herbal medicine is very limited in its approaches to chronic pain conditions and instant reliefs. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers various techniques and different formulas for treating the sick after good amount of time is spent on diagnosis while on the other hand Ayurveda looks into the holistic well-being of individuals and global societies. Ayurveda considers eating mushrooms as tamasic in contrast to Chinese medicine which claims eating mushrooms in good for mind and ability to meditate.

Causes of diseases, signs and symptoms, and drugs to restrict their spread were thus learnt through a scientific methodology. This resulted in the holistic and integrated approach of Ayurveda.
