Ganga's Purity Is Our Responsibility!
गंगा की पवित्रता हमारी जिम्मेदारी है!
The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to human physicians. In Sushruta Samhita ([Sushruta's Compendium]), Sushruta wrote that Dhanvantari, Hindu god of Ayurveda, incarnated himself as a mythical king of Varanasi and taught medicine to a group of physicians, including Sushruta. Ayurveda therapies have varied and evolved over more than two millennia. Therapies are typically based on complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances (perhaps under the influence of early Indian alchemy or rasa shastra). Ancient Ayurveda texts also taught surgical techniques, including rhinoplasty, kidney stone extractions, sutures, and the extraction of foreign objects.
Although laboratory experiments suggest it is possible that some substances in Ayurveda might be developed into effective treatments, there is no evidence that any are effective as currently practiced. Ayurveda medicine is considered pseudoscientific. Other researchers consider it a protoscience, or trans-science system instead.Close to 21% of Ayurveda U.S. and Indian-manufactured patent medicines sold through the Internet were found to contain toxic levels of heavy metals, specifically lead, mercury, and arsenic.The public health implications of such metallic contaminants in India are unknown.
Some scholars assert that Ayurveda originated in prehistoric times, and that some of the concepts of Ayurveda have existed from the time of the Indus Valley Civilization or even earlier. Ayurveda developed significantly during the Vedic period and later some of the non-Vedic systems such as Buddhism and Jainism also developed medical concepts and practices that appear in the classical Ayurveda texts. Humoral balance is emphasized, and suppressing natural urges is considered unhealthy and claimed to lead to illness. Ayurveda names three elemental substances, the doshas (called Vata, Pitta and Kapha), and states that a balance of the doshas results in health, while imbalance results in disease. Ayurveda has eight canonical components, which are derived from classical Sanskrit literature. Some of the oldest known Ayurvedic texts include the Sushruta Samhita and Charaka Samhita ([Charaka's Compendium]), which are written in Sanskrit. Ayurveda practitioners developed various medicinal preparations and surgical procedures by the medieval period.
AYURVEDIC RESTORATIVE YOGA MASSAGE HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE BENEFICIAL FOR MANY CONDITIONS, EITHER AS A CURE OR AS A MEANS OF PROVIDING RELIEF, PROMOTING RECOVERY FROM INJURY AND ILLNESS, SUCH AS:
Reduces stress:Meditation, yoga, herbal treatments, and breathing exercises are some of the many techniques that can help reduce stress and anxiety. A medical research review conducted by St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Massachusetts found that over the corse of 35 trials, investigating the effects of yoga, 25 trials showed significant reduction in signs of stress and anxiety. Other research says that regular yoga practice can improve autonomic nervous functions by reducing sympathetic activity, which is our fight or flight response.
Weight Loss Or Maintenance:While weight loss isn’t a main concern, Ayurvedic medicine promotes shedding excess weight by consuming a natural and healthy diet. A study conducted by NutriHealth System in New Delhi found that changing someone’s health diet helped clients lose weight effectively.

Hormonal Balance:Ayurveda can help balance hormones naturally, resulting in a healthy menstrual cycle/pregnancy. In 2010, a study done by Institute of Indigenous Medicine at the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka found that using essential oils can help with balancing hormones. Ayurveda prescribes natural formations and various therapeutic properties to help with all ill effects of hormonal imbalance.
Minimizes Inflammation:Inflammation can be caused by inadequate sleep, poor diet, and deficient digestion. The Ayurvedic method of healing reduces inflammation to regulate the heart system and digestive tract by eliminating waste. Consuming a combination of herbal treatments, exercise that gently boosts metabolism, and antioxidants can help lower inflammation and increase energy.
Reduce Symptoms of Illness and Disease:Eating an illness-specific diet, getting sun exposure, and breathing in and out can help the person eat better and treat symptoms of illness. Metals like iron are thought to have healing properties to keep diseases away and reduce the chances of getting sick. Some supplements claiming to be approved by Ayurveda may contain toxic metals, so proceed with caution before purchasing them, especially online!
Cleanses The Body:Ayurvedic medicine promotes internal cleansing for improved health. “Panchakama” is the process of getting rid of food and toxins that interfere with efficient body function. Enemas, oils, and massage therapy help get the body working properly by moving toxins from the tissues to the intestines to remove them from the body.
Overall Balance:The benefit of Ayurveda is that it focuses on individualized treatment and improve the entire body, internally and externally. When someone has emotional stress or health issues, physical activity, nutrition, and spiritual connection can recalibrate your body and promote balance.
Help Cure InsomniaHaving a late dinner, drinking caffeine before bedtime, watching tv, staring at the phone, or eating a spicy or heavy meal for dinner can disrupt your sleep and aggravate your nervous system. Ayurveda can help induce a restful sleep with simple tips like rubbing jasmine or coconut oil on the scalp or soles of feet, drinking a cup of warm almond milk or chamomile tea, or stating a positive affirmation can effectively help cure insomnia and inspire peaceful sleep.
Regulate Bloating:Practicing Ayurveda can help manage bloating and poor digestion by expelling the buildup of waste. Spices, herbs, and roots like cumin, cardamom, fennel, and ginger can cure indigestion in the body. Chewing cumin and ginger before eating can promote digestion, and drinking cardamom and fennel in boiled water can calm the digestive system as well as relieve cramps.
Healthy and Glowing Skin :Ayurveda has a ton of proven tricks to help keep your skin soft and radiant without spending money. Consuming veggies like cucumber, lettuce, and daikon radish are easier to digest because of their purifying properties and high-water content. Exercising keeps your joints and muscles toned and helps your body expel toxins through sweat. Nuts and seeds contain healthy fats and Omega-3’s, which have active components responsible for maintaining healthy skin and lowering inflammation in certain skin conditions.
