Ayurveda, Ayurvedic Medical Science and Treatment


What is Ayurveda? What does Ayurveda stand for?

Ayurveda is Sanskrit, and Chinese is generally translated as Ayurveda or "Life Vedic Medicine". Ayurveda is Sanskrit, which is composed of two words: Ayur means "life", Veda means "knowledge", So the word Ayurveda means the science of life. Ayurveda medicine is not only a medical system, but also represents a healthy lifestyle. Ayurveda and yoga are sister disciplines and are known as "Mothers of Medicine". Yoga focuses on the harmony and unity of the body and mind, while Ayurveda focuses on the balance between the human body and external nature.

Ayurveda is a traditional natural remedy in India. It has a history of more than 5,000 years and is considered to be the oldest medical system in the world. Ayurveda can be said to be an all-encompassing medicine or science, which includes observation, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, detoxification and renewal of the body, surgery and herbal medicine. Maintaining energy balance through diet, yoga, meditation, and massage not only treats illness, but also reduces pain and prevents recurrence.

The Indian medical system includes Ayurveda (also known as Vedas of Life) medicine and Siddha medicine

It is considered the oldest medical system in the world. It has been used in countless traditional Indian families for more than 5,000 years. It affects almost all medical systems in the northern and southern hemispheres, so India's Ayurveda is known as the "Mother of Medicine".

From the early literature, it can be seen that Ayurvedic doctors have prophetic opinions on the powerful medical properties of plants, and can be said to be the pioneers of modern pharmacology. They also knew how the body works, and there was even evidence that Dr. Ayurveda had undergone human surgery.

In addition, this system has also emphasized the importance of diet and spirituality from ancient times to the present. Ayurveda's shadow can be seen in Chinese traditional Chinese medicine and the medical method of Hippocrates, "the father of modern medicine".

"In yoga, we use the body to serve the mind; in Ayurveda, we heal the body, but this body is not only the physical layer, but it contains all layers."

What historical origins does Ayurveda have?

Ayurveda traditional medicine dates back to the Vedic era of the Ayurvedic Vatican Museum in 5000 BC. It is known for the oldest documented comprehensive medical system in the world.

According to Indian mythology, the origin of Ayurveda is legendary. It was created by Brahma, the creator of one of the three major Hindu gods, to protect humans before they were created. Brahma first taught Ayurveda to the twin twins (Aswins) of the twin gods of medicine, and they taught them to Indra, the god of thunderstorms. Indra taught to the wise men who practiced in the world, and they passed on to their offspring and disciples.

For the first time in history, Ayurvedic records appear in Rig Veda, an ancient collection of Indian poetry dating back to 6000 BC. From 3000 BC to 2000 BC, Atharva, one of the four Vedic classics, was introduced. Among them, Ayurveda was a supplement to the Vedic sacred scriptures-Veda, attached to Awapova. Tuo. Although Ayurvedic medicine has long been used in practice, it was not until then that it was compiled into a book by word of mouth and became an independent science.

Around 1500 BC, Ayurveda medicine was divided into two schools:

Atiyah-the internalist school and Dhanvantari-the externalist school, making it a more systematic science.
These two colleges have authored two major books on Ayurveda medicine-Caraka Samhita and Susruta Samhita. Both medical classics were written in the first half of the 1st century BC.

The Book of Zoroga was written by the great Indian medical ancestor Zorogar, and was supplemented and modified by Atiyah. It is still the most widely used medical book in Ayurveda.

Miaowen inherited the theories of the Vatican school, the ancestor of Indian medicine. His "Miaowen Collection" compiled various knowledge of repair surgery, including limb replacement surgery, plastic surgery, laparotomy and even brain surgery. At the same time, he is also famous for inventing rhinoplasty. 

Ayurveda Medical Classics

Around 500 AD, the third important Ayurvedic medical work, Astanga Hridaya, was published. It synthesizes the views of the two universities of Ayurveda. From 500 AD to 1900 AD, 16 important medical monographs, Nightus, were introduced as supplements to Ayurveda's medical classics. They collected and recorded various new drugs, expanded their usage, and discarded old drugs. And material identification methods.

There is evidence that Ayurveda medicine has enriched almost all medical systems in the world. Through maritime trade with India, the Egyptians learned about Ayurveda medicine. The invasion of Alexander the Great brought Greeks and Romans into contact with Ayurveda.

Traditional UNANI medicine is formed in this communication. In the early years of the first millennium, with the spread of Buddhism to the east, Ayurveda medicine also spread to the east, and it has a huge impact on Tibetan medicine and traditional Chinese herbal medicine.

Origin of Yoga and Ayurveda

Brief content

Ayurveda and yoga are both ancient life sciences of ancient India. The two are closely linked and complement each other; they were both created for the happiness of mankind. Ayurveda focuses on physical well-being. Yoga is to achieve spiritual happiness and open up awareness.

Ayuhu = Span of Life

Veda = Teaching, the ancient knowledge

According to the philosophy of yoga, our bodies have 5 layers:

  1. Material layer, also known as food body, thick body
  2. Life energy layer
  3. Emotional layer
  4. Mental layer
  5. Spiritual layer

The dimensions that Ayurveda focuses on are how subtle energy in food and beverages affects our bodies, emotions, energy, and thoughts, rather than physical dimensions such as protein and minerals measured in western nutrition. Ayurveda believes that these subtle energies come from the source of the universe. From the place with the highest frequency of vibration, the energy gradually slows down, forming five major elements such as ether, air, fire, water, and soil. These elements combine in pairs to form the three major Dosha duas, namely Vatta / Vata (Vata), Pitta / Pita (Pitta), and Kapha (Kapha). Each person and even everything in the world is composed of three major cities Xia in a certain proportion. Our bodies shape Sapta Dhatus (Seven Major Organizations) through these energies. Sanskrit Sapta, English translation seven, Chinese translation "seven"; Dhatus / Datus, English translation tissues, Chinese translation "organization".

The seven major organizations include:

  1. Rasa Dhatu body fluid (translated as "plasma" in the video, in fact "body fluid" is more commonly used)
  2. Rakta Dhatu blood tissue
  3. Masma Dhatu muscle tissue
  4. Meda Dhatu adipose tissue
  5. Ashti Dhatu Skeletal Tissue
  6. Shukra Dhatu Reproductive / Regenerating Tissue
  7. Prakruti contains a specific proportion of Dosha, which is our innate attributes, qualities, and our "nature".

In addition to nature, there are acquired influences. Food, lifestyle, what we see and think about, the environment, and the people and things in our lives will all change our attributes and affect our physical, emotional, thought, and energy. This is called Vikruti and it is your current Dosha proportion.

Ayurveda believes that as long as the ratio of the three major doshas is in balance, we can be physically and mentally healthy, otherwise disease will occur. Ayurveda is a preventive medical system. It believes that energy imbalance is the root cause of disease. To prevent disease, we must pay attention to balance and maintain balance. However, depending on the environment, lifestyle, eating habits, and stage of life, it is not easy for most people to maintain balance.


Therefore, through Ayurveda theory to deeply understand your body (physical, psychological, spiritual, energy and other aspects), consciously pay attention to changes in your body, through scientific and reasonable diet, lifestyle, yoga asana meditation Exercises to help you achieve a balance between body and mind, and minimize the friction that hinders our spiritual growth. This is why yoga people learn Ayurveda.
