AYURVEDA Treatment in Goa

AYURVEDA TREATMENT


The sources of Indian history say that some 5,000 years ago a group of men left their villages and towns and went to live in the foothills of the Himalayas. The reason was that they had decided to find a way to check the ailments and suffering that the people were going through. During this time people often died of simple ailments, so these people aimed to learn how to eradicate illness and disease from the world. These men, known as the Rishis (Learned men), meditated together and from their meditations they acquired the knowledge which was then codified as Ayurveda.


The Ayurvedic system was believed to be divinely inspired. The principal text, known as the Charakra Samhita and regarded as sacred, opens with a description of the Rishis' meditations and forms part of what is the oldest and most complete system of medicine and healing known to mankind. When the Ayurvedic texts were being written, disease was regarded as an evil visitation which prevented the individual from attaining self-realization. To free someone from disease was to enable that person to follow a truly spiritual path, liberated from the constraints of the physical body. A body afflicted by disease resulted in a spirit tied down by worldly concerns and unable to soar. Enlightenment could only be attained by those who enjoyed both good physical and mental health.

Ayurveda Treatment in Goa


Ayurveda is a Sanskrti word and is a combination of two words "Ayur" and "Veda". Where "ayur" means life and "veda" means knowledge/science, together "the science of life". It is the holistic ancient Indian medical science which deals with the body, mind and soul. It is not merely knowledge of curing ailments, but it provides measures for a disciplined, disease free long, happy and healthy life.


Ayurveda is a great gift to mankind by ancient Indian medical scholars. It is based on the principles of Pancha Mahabhuta (five great elements) and Tridosha Theory (three biological humors). Designed to treat man as a whole, Ayurveda describes, in detail, the principles of preservation and promotion of health as well as prevention and cure of diseases. As the medicines used are mainly plants, the side effects are almost nonexistent.


Ayurveda treatment has attracted the attention of scholars of modern medical science in other countries also. Hence the recent rise in curiosity, awareness, and desire to know and utilize Ayurvedic knowledge is increasing all over the world.
