Ayurveda, a word originated from Sanskrit consists of basically two words. Ayus, which means life and veda which means knowledge. Vedas have been acknowledged as the oldest written records in the history of civilizations. But more than a written record it is a compendium of the knowledge systems that were in vogue at that particular age in India.

Ayurveda, the knowledge of life and longevity, is the oldest, most comprehensive scientific discipline, a complete health care system or healing system that was preached and practiced in the ancient times by omniscient sages.  Thus it not only is concerned with treating of a disease but bringing about a whole change in the person that he begins to feel harmony with the universe. After a stint with the science you not only gain freedom from the ailments but in turn gain a new attitude towards life itself.

The treatment procedures followed in this institution are called as Ayurvedeeya Pancha Karma or the five procedures of Ayurveda are :-

» Vamana{emesis},
» Virechana{purgation},
» Nasya{nasal medication},
» Vasti
   {administration of medicines through rectum} and
» Raktamokshana{blood letting}.

Internal medicines are also prescribed according to the disease. The treatments need a personal touch by the Vaidya since it also helps in making the physician understand the condition of the disease better. Therefore the treatments done at this institution are invariably done with a personal touchof the physician.This serves in fostering a parent-child relationship between the physician and the patient which is quite essential for the successful curing of a disease.
How Ayurveda works?
Ayurveda is based on the principle that the Universe is composed of five basic elements - the Panch Mahabootas, namely: Prithivi(earth), Apya(water), Teja(fire), Vayu(air) and Akash(space). Ayurveda exists on the fact that the Tridoshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha - in the human body should always be in equilibrium. The unbalanced state of these three elements results in a disease in the body.

The first step in Ayurveda treatment is diagnosis to determine the constitution of the person. That is a unique way by which the patient who is diagnosed first and not the disease.The same disease might appear in different forms in two persons because of their different constitution. Due to this variation in constitution the medicines and treatment may be different for two people for the same illness. This difference in treatment methods according to the constitution is essential to bring back the natural balance of the biological humors. The constitutional approach is the essence of the Ayurvedic system. Understanding the patient’s constitution helps one to lead a life style that is most befitting his constitution, thus optimizing his health and creative potential.

According to Ayurvedic system, human body consists of three primary life forces or biological humors, which are Vatha, Pitha and Kapha. These three doshas are called the tridoshas. A balance among these life forces is essential for proper health. Any imbalance among the tridoshas causes a state of unhealthiness or disease. After analyzing the patient’s constitution  and treat accordingly helps one to lead a life style that is most befitting his constitution, thus optimizing his health and creative potential.
