An overview on Ayurveda
Here you find a short introduction into the Ayurveda teachings
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the world-wide oldest and well-known life and health teaching and it comes from the advanced Vedic culture of old India.
The knowledge was kept verbally for thousands of years; the oldest writings in Sanskrit are 5000 years old. Ayurveda is considered as "the mother of medicine".
"Ayus" means life, "Veda" the knowledge, the science. Ayurveda is the science of the long life; it is about a healthy lifestyle in view of the unit of body, spirit and soul with consideration of all environmental factors.
The basis of Ayurveda is formed by the three principles of performance or energy (Doshas):Vata - the movement principlePitta - the fire principleKapha - the structure principleAll three principles are necessary for surviving and cooperating appear everywhere in nature.
Type of constitution
These three Doshas work in each human. They perform determined functions in the body. Each human has his individual equilibrium of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, usually one or two Doshas are prevalent. The Doshas shape physical and mental characteristics.
If the Doshas are in the individual equilibrium, humans are healthy.
As a small assistance for the determination of the own Dosha prevalences you can consult a constitutions table. However, this cannot replace a constitution regulation done by an experienced Ayurveda physician (e.g. by pulse diagnosis)
Daily rhythm, seasons, weather
Times of the day influence on our Doshas.
The seasons with their typical weather conditions affect the Doshas considerably.
The summer, for example, is controlled by the element Pitta (heat). That automatically effects our body and spirit: Pitta increases.
The day is divided into six time periods, in which a Dosha prevails in each case.
For example, the time between 6:00 – 10:00 o’clock in the morning is Kapha time. In this time the Kapha in our body increases.
Nutrition in Ayurveda
Nutrition plays an important role in Ayurveda. Nothing is really forbidden, but Ayurveda recommends a balanced food, appropriate to the constitution.
Balanced in the Ayurveda sense means to consider all six taste directions: sweet, sour, salty, hot, bitter and astringent.
Each of these tastes affects the Doshas: sweet tastes reduce Pitta and Vata and increase Kapha.
Food intake is power consumption. By the correct food and the appropriate composition of a meal you can thus positively affect your Doshas.
The meaning of metabolism
A central task in Ayurveda is a well working metabolism.
There are different causes of a disturbed digestion, all of them have in common that the indigested food leads to metabolic poisons, which overload the body and lead to many different diseases in the long term. In Ayurveda, these metabolic poisons are called "Ama".
The increase of the digesting strength and the decomposition of Ama in the body is an elementary task of the Ayurveda.
The Panchakarma health cure
The king discipline in the Ayurveda is the Panchakarma health cure, a cleaning and rejuvenation course.
The combination of internal and external applications of oils (among other things Ghee, enemas, massage), Ayurveda cooking, Yoga and meditation work, a holistic cleaning to bring body, spirit and soul into a harmonious union.
In the west, the gentle massage with warm oils enjoys great popularity in the meantime. Often the Ayurveda is exclusively reduced to this treatment here. In the Ayurveda teachings, massage is considered an independent therapy form, however within many other further therapies.
The synchrony massage is known best, with two massage therapists doing the massage at the same time and leaving you with a marvelously holistic feeling, developed by the synchronous treatment of both body halves.
Beside the oil massage, there are still many further massage types in Ayurveda.
