Ayurveda is the traditional method of treatment, yes the most ancient one, but yes no doubt it goes hand in hand with the present era.
Are you believing in certain myths regarding ayurveda?
So let’s cover some basic myths and clear them with reality that could come in your mind at a certain point of time.
AYURVEDA CAN DEAL WITH ONLY CERTAIN NO. OF DISEASE.
Reality – Hold on guys! The no. of diseases you go through in the ayurvedic era is beyond your imagination.
From head to toe, deep to superficial, each cell, tissue, organ, organ system & whole human body can be treated with AYURVEDA.
LATE ACTION!!! & NO EMERGENCY TREATMENT
Reality – ayurveda believes in eradication of root cause not only symptomatic relief.
I would like to clear here with leaving an option for you… on one hand you will be provided with fast acting drugs that give symptomatic relief with definite chances of relapsing illness and on the other hand gradually but the root of the illness is treated. Now the choice is yours!
And yes I want to assure you that research is going on emergency treatment very soon it will get reflected in practice.
MYTH NO. 3
AYURVEDA MEANT ONLY FOR SPIRITUALITY
Reality– Ayurveda is science in its own.
I agree spirituality is a part of ayurveda, as mentioned in previous blogs ayurveda is not limited to life but also deals beyond life.
Main aim of Ayurveda is to maintain the wellbeing of the healthy and cure the sufferer. So how come it’s not a way of treatment!
DOES NOT FOCUS ON DOSE
Reality– The accuracy of doses cannot be seen in any other pathies as it is solely noted in ayurveda. It sets its dose on the basis of age, sex, preparation of medicine and most importantly according to the prakriti of body.
AYURVEDA IS HOME REMEDY AND NO DRUG SCREENING IS PERFORMED
Reality –first of all ayurveda has its own testing labs as well as preparatory units, yes certain formulations can be prepared at home, as it also provides a way for home remedies. But home remedies are just a part of ayurveda, not whole ayurveda is based on home remedies. Every drug has to pass the screening and quality checks by quality control labs and can be given to the patients only after the approval of authorised regulatory bodies of India.
WORKS ONLY ON PREVENTION AND NOT ON CURE
Reality – Yes ayurveda promotes prevention but along with it deals with numerous methods of curing diseases.
It is believed from ancient times, if one succeeds in preventing the disease then what’s the need of curing! It is vouched that it has never lacked anywhere in curing illnesses.
