Ayurvedic medicine, or Ayurveda, is a 5,000-year-old, holist healing system that was developed in India. Its fundamental principle for health is based on the balance of body, mind and spirit. While Ayurveda does have treatments for different conditions and diseases, its first aim is the prevention of disease and the promotion of good health. When the harmony of the body, mind and spirit is achieved, you will have a better chance at good health. Situations in life can affect this harmony, and this is when sickness and poor health may happen.
Some of the life conditions that may cause you to be out of balance are:
- Seasonal changes
- Emotional trauma
During a consultation with our specialist at the Sajune Institute for Restorative and Regenerative Medicine in Orlando, you can learn more about Ayurveda and how it works. We often combine this form of medicine with other traditional Western medicine practices. You may be asked to consider a healthy, well-balanced diet, stress relief, lifestyle changes along with various herbal remedies to bring your body back into balance to heal a wide variety of conditions.
Ayurvedic medicine offers several benefits when used to address various conditions. There are several meditation exercises in Ayurveda that calm nerves, promote restful sleep and improve hormonal function for people with depression and anxiety. These treatments have become very popular over the past few decades as people are looking for treatments that do not involve taking drugs.
Ayurvedic medicine can also help to lower cholesterol and blood pressure. The healthy diets our expert prescribes along with relaxation techniques may lower inflammation and reduce plaque buildup, which lowers blood pressure. Research shows it may even reduce the thickness of artery walls. This may help to reduce your risk of stroke and heart attack.
Ayurveda targets inflammation, which is the source of most diseases. It helps with recovery from illness and injury. Studies in 2011 showed that the results of rheumatoid arthritis patients who were treated with Ayurvedic medicine were just as good as those treated with prescription drugs. The Ayurvedic treatment had no side effects or drug interactions.
An Ayurvedic diet promotes a plant-based diet that contains whole-foods. While each body type requires a different diet, the general dietary guidelines focus on fresh herbs, vegetables, spiced teas, healthy fats, protein and high-antioxidant foods.
This type of medicine can help with weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight. It focuses on stress reduction, healthy oils and a customized healthy diet. It may be based on the individual’s food preferences. The aim is to promote weight loss for those who need it and maintain a healthy weight for those who are not overweight.
Ayurvedic medicine may naturally help hormonal balance. This may be beneficial for people who have trouble conceiving, have an irregular menstrual or ovarian cycle or uncomfortable menopause symptoms.
