The two principle objectives of Ayurveda are:
'Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam (स्वस्थस्य स्वास्थ्यरक्षणं)’ – To prolong life and promote perfect health (add years to life and life to years ).
‘Aturasya vikar prashamanamcha (अतुरस्य विकार प्रशमनाम्चा)’ – To completely eradicate the disease and dysfunction of the body.
How does science of Ayurveda work?
The integrity of Ayurveda is that it personalizes the healing process. It perceives each and every person as a unique individual, with a unique body-mind constitution (genetic composition) and a Unique set of life circumstances, all of which must be considered in determining either natural healing approaches or recommendations for daily living. The principle of Ayurvedic science is predominantly based on the 'Tridosha theory' and the 'Pancha Mahabhuta Theory'. These theories explain that the body is primarily composed of the five elements of the universe and all diseases occur due to the imbalance of the three vital forces (Doshas) of the body that are responsible for maintaining the equilibrium of health.
Ayurveda works upon mitigating this imbalance by channelizing nature's energy and resource after analyzing the body constitution and advises the apt line of treatment.
