Constant ill health with one ailment or other, struck a kind of rebel in me.  I chose to visit lesser to see a Doctor as it was becoming a regular practice. One canot go to a Doctor in a big city at the spur of the moment. My sickness were becoming more of a game play or Vudu like. I started a search for various disciplines of Medicine for my problems online. As I am a constant practitioner of practical Yoga postures to keep my body in a mobile codition, I found it more satisfactory to search for my symptoms on various Medical Sites. Naturopathy was always one of my favorites. But the severity of a particular illness always resulted in taking allopathic medicines due to their quick relief. Belonging to a Doctor's family too was a reason for my dependence on allopathy. I started reading Homeopathy, Ayurveda and other practices on various Websites. I am sharing my findings and enlightened knowledge with you so that it might come handy in your times of illnesses.

I found Ayurveda very close to Naturopathy. 'Ayurveda'  is a system of healing that originated in ancient India. In Sanskrit, ayur means life or living, and veda means knowledge, so Ayurveda can be defined as the "knowledge of living" or the "science of longevity." Ayurveda medicine practices utilizes detoxification and purification techniques, herbal and mineral remedies, yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, diet, and massage therapy as holistic healing methods. Ayurvedic system of medicine is widely practiced in India, China, Japan, Gemany, as well as other countries. According to the texts, Ayurveda was conceived by enlightened wise men as a system of living harmoniously and maintaining the body so that mental and spiritual awareness could be possible.


According to the original texts, the Ayurvedic system of Medicine is prevention as well as promotion of the body's own capacity for maintenance and balance. Ayurvedic treatment is non-invasive and non-toxic, so it can be used safely as an alternative therapy or alongside conventional therapies. Ayurvedic physicians claim that their methods can also help stress-related, metabolic, and chronic conditions. Ayurveda has been used to treat acne, allergies, asthma , anxiety, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome , colds, colitis, constipation, depression, diabetes, flu, heart disease, hypertension, immune problems, inflammation, insomnia, nervous disorders, obesity, skin problems, and ulcers.
