Ayurveda The "Science of Life" is a holistic healing system that is over 5000 years old and still traditionally practiced in India according to the teachings of the Vedas. According to their teachings, health is a state of perfect balance between the 3 bioenergies called the Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) of the body, as well as the balance of body, mind and soul.
The doshas are constantly influenced by changing the season, the outside environment and the age as well as by our thoughts and feelings, as well as the quantity and the quality of our food.
If we learn to understand our constitution and juggle with the 3 Doshas and to strengthen or diminish according to the current requirements Vata, Pitta, Kapha, we can get our health through a simple procedure and achieve a more fulfilling life.
Explanation of the 3 Doshas, Vata, Pitta, Kapha, which are connected with the 5 elements of space, air, fire, water and earth, and the "digestion fire - Agni.
Vata is the energy of movement. Although it is the air principle, it is not considered as identical to the air in the external physical world, but as the subtle energy that controls the biological movement.
Vata is irrevocably connected with the life essence called Prana. Prana is the pure essence of Vata, the vitality and the game of intelligence. This flow of inelligen is necessary for two cells to communicate with each other, and they maintain the vital function of both. As a principle of movement, Vata regulates all activities in the body, both the mental and the physiological. Vata is the subtle energy associated with the movement of the body that controls breathing, blinking as well as movement of the muscles and tissues, the beat of the heart, and all movements in the cytoplasm and in the cell membranes.
When Vata is in balance, it promotes creativity and flexibility, a feeling of freshness, ease, happiness and joy; If the balance is disturbed, Vata produces anxiety and fear, nervousness, insomnia and even tremors and spasms as a result.
Pitta is translated with fire, but this is not to be understood literally. It is the principle of fire, the energy of heating or metabolism.
Pitta controls all biochemical changes occurring in our body and regulates digestion, food intake and body temperature. Pitta includes the enzymes and amino acids, which play an important role in the metabolism.
Through the chemical transformation of food, Pitta regulates body temperature and promotes appetite and vitality. At the same time, every impression we take from the outside is also processed and digested.
Thus, Pitta promotes equilibrium intelligence and understanding and is also also crucial for learning. If the balance is disturbed, fiery emotions such as frustration, anger, hatred, criticism, and jealousy can be aroused.
Kapha combines the elements water and earth. This is the energy that forms the body structure, the "glue" that holds the cells together. Kapha provides fluid that our cells and body systems need to live.
Kapha makes our joints supple, moisturizes the skin, promotes wound healing and preserves immune defense. Kapha provides strength, strength and vitality.
On the psychological level, Kapha is responsible for sticking to things and people, greed, sexual desire, and envy.
When this energy is balanced in a balanced state, it is expressed in the tendency to love and rest as well as willingness to forgive
In Ayurveda it is said that every human being is as old as his digestive fire. In the Charaka-Samhita, one of the great classical works of Ayurvedic medicine, it is said: The life span as well as health, immunity and energy, the metabolism, the skin color, strength and enthusiasm, the shine and the life-death all depend on Agni. If this fire fulfills its function adequately, the man enjoys a long, healthy life.
He gets sick when Agni is disturbed, and he dies when this fire is completely extinguished. Adequate nutrition of the body, tissues (Dhatus), ojas, etc., depends on the function of Agni in the digestion process. The 5 types of Agni which correspond to the elements ether, air, fire, water, earth digest the corresponding components of the food. In this way Agni cooks the adequate chosen and properly consumed food and promotes health.
Agni is necessary for the normal course of the digestive process and the subtle energy of Agni transforms the lifeless molecules of food, water and air into consciousness.
What is Panchakarma?
Panchakarma means five actions in Sanskrit. Pancha translates to 5 and karma means action.
Ayurveda emphasizes preventive and healing therapies along with various methods of purification and rejuvenation.
The primary intention of an Ayurvedic cleanse is to restore the body’s natural processes. This occurs through the vital forces; whose task it is to rid the body of it’s waste.
This process is strengthening the immune system, preventing disease and improving overall health.
Why to experience Panchakarma:
• Eliminate toxins and toxic conditions from your body and mind.
• Restore your constitutional balance improving health and wellness.
• Strengthen your immune system and become more resistant to illness.
• Reverse the negative effects of stress on your body and mind thereby slowing the aging process.
• Enhance your self-reliance, strength, energy, vitality and mental clarity.
• Bring about deep relaxation and sense of well-being.
According to Ayurveda, our natural state is one of health, happiness and an inner sense of well-being. Health is defined as the body being clear of toxins, the mind is at peace, emotions are calm and happy, wastes are efficiently eliminated and organs are functioning normally. In a busy, stressful and toxic world, our physical and mental systems accumulate toxins causing deterioration in bodily functioning. This eventually weakens our systems, which opens the door for chronic, degenerative, and non-specific diseases to develop. These can evolve into serious specific diseases, ultimately damaging an individual’s health and wellness.
Panchakarma can help by reversing these negative effects of daily living. It can restore your natural state of health and wellness by cleansing your body of toxins, bringing balance into your system and improving bodily function. It can also help you sustain this process by making positive changes in lifestyle.
