Health And Disease In Āyurveda

About

Traditional Āyurvedic Medicine (TAM) outlines the pathogenesis of several diseases, their contributing causes, and their treatments. Yet it is also well versed in health. In Āyurveda, maintaining your health is as important as reversing disease.

How Āyurveda Defines Health

Good health is indicated by the presence of happiness, satisfaction and pleasure. It is the complete absence of disease.

Health is the goal of Āyurveda and it is known by the presence of certain indicators.

  • Satisfaction
  • Pleasantness
  • A content mind
  • Strong intelligence
  • Healthy sense organs
  • Strong physical body

A complete state of health is found when five factors are met:

  1. The fundamental physiological forces of your body must be functioning at optimal levels.
  2. The digestive strength must be in a state of equilibrium.
  3. The result of the digestive process or the growth of your body must also be at optimal levels – neither in excess or deficiency.
  4. Waste products must be functioning and eliminated from your body properly.
  5. You must be happy on the level of the mind, sense organs and soul.

How Āyurveda Measures Health And Disease

We measure your health by gauging several factors. When you’re healthy, you experience contentment upon waking in the morning. You have a normal and unimpaired release of urine, stool, flatus and ejaculate. Your mind, intellect and sense organs are free from disorder or disease.

When healthy, you should be able to do or experience the following things.

  • Manage pain or suffering correctly
  • Speak properly
  • Have a healthy complexion
  • Heal and recover properly
  • Build physical strength
  • Desire food
  • Have a proper, normal presence of an appetite at regular mealtimes
  • Digest food properly
  • Understand the importance of a regular sleep schedule
  • Not experience abnormal dreams

Traditional Āyurvedic Medicine (TAM) assesses your state of health and the presence of disease by considering both external and internal factors.

A thorough assessment considers the climate in which you live and the season of the year. Your personal daily routines, sleep quality and quantity as well as the proper release of bodily wastes are also assessed. Your health concerns, symptoms and health history are evaluated and your digestive power, strength, mental state and stage of life are also determined.

An assessment with Traditional Āyurvedic Medicine (TAM) determines the state of health, stage of disease and quantum and quality of dosha or impurities in your body.

Impurities are managed with diet and lifestyle changes, Āyurvedic formulations and a medically supervised pañchakarma cleanse.

How Āyurveda Defines Disease

Disease in Āyurveda is marked by unhappiness, dissatisfaction and displeasure. It is defined as the abnormal condition of the body’s seven layers or dhatus. In Āyurveda, dhatus are the body parts that grow as a result of the digestive process.

They are the digestive fluid or rasa, the red fluid within the blood or rakta, the body fat or medas, the muscle or mamsa, the bone or asthi, the bone marrow or majja, the reproductive fluid or sukra and the ojas, a subtle essence indicative of wellness and unique to Āyurveda.

Symptoms of ill health may be generated in your body by internal factors like an improper diet or by external factors like a wound. If the initial aggravation of these impurities or symptoms is left unchecked, they can exacerbate into symptoms of ill health. If they are not managed properly, they may spread throughout your body and full blown disease may manifest.

Restoring Your Health With Āyurveda

At every stage of disease it is necessary for you to end the use of or participation in the contributing causes to your discomfort or illness. You must stop the causes. The entire Āyurvedic management protocol gives you the support you need to take this important step. Modification of diet and lifestyle is advised and Āyurvedic formulations or body therapies may be recommended to assist you on your path to good health.

When you experience the beneficial effects of lifestyle changes your path towards health becomes clear. Good health is achieved with good living. Let us support you with effective methods for relieving discomfort and finding good health once again.
