Ayurveda – medicine and life philosophy
Ayurvedic medicine is over 5000 years old. This makes it the oldest practised health system in the world. The translation of Ayurveda from Sanskrit means roughly “knowledge of life”. Two definitions help give an indication of how modern its view of health is. One of these is over 2000 years old and originates from one of the most important fundamental works in Ayurvedic medicine, the Sushruta Samhita:
“A person is deemed to be healthy if their physiology is in equilibrium; with their digestive system and metabolism working well, their tissues and excretory systems functioning normally and their soul, spirit and senses in a state of enduring, inner contentment.”
The other definition comes from the World Health Organisation (WHO): “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Ayurvedic medicine’s holistic approach is also the reason why it has enjoyed such an exemplary position over the last two decades. People from industrialised countries, in particular, are increasingly recognising that this traditional Indian medical system not only cures illnesses but can prevent them too Ultimately: Ayurvedic therapies revitalise body and soul, they enhance well-being and restore strength that has been lost due to people’s lifestyles.
