Ayurvedic Medicine has supported the health of millions of people for centuries. Ayurveda is a health and wellness protocol. Through generations of documented study, Ayurvedic practitioners have observed cause and effect in human health.
A basic premise is that every person is different, so what causes a particular response in one, may not in another. The same foods, environments, stressors and other inputs can cause widely different effects in different people.
However, within groupings, called doshas, and sub-groupings, similarities occur. As a health protocol, much of Ayurvedic Medicine focuses on determining the dominant dosha of each person – a fairly simple technique.
Once that is known, the subject can be told (or learn themselves, through their own research) about the ascribed features, attributes and expressions of their dosha.
From there, they will learn what foods and environmental factors they should seek more of, and what they should avoid. The whole basis is that of seeking balance, as an excess of any dosha will cause an imbalance, which is the root of disease and ill-health.
From an Ayurvedic viewpoint, restoring balance is the starting point to health and wellness. This eBook, in some depth, discusses some common afflictions that have been addressed by Ayurvedic Medicine.
It provides an understanding as to why certain aspects of ill-health affect some more than others, what causes them, and how they can be overcome, often mainly by dietary means.
