Ayurveda provides rational means for the treatment of many internal diseases which are considered to be obstinate and incurable in other systems of medicine. Ayurveda places a great deal of emphasis on the maintenance of positive health for normal and healthy persons by following prescribed regimens during day, night, and different seasons. It thus is both disease prevention and a cure.
According to ayurveda, humans are exposed to disease because of many internal and external factors. Recognizing the existence of viruses and bacteria, ayurveda acknowledges that the individual must ensure health by proper maintenance.
The approach of ayurvedic medicine is based on the experience of thousand of years of practice. It relates constitutional strength and susceptibility to disease to a “tridosa” analysis of nutrition, digestion and other physiological functions. Ayurveda provides a coherent and systematic approach to understanding the human condition. It is highly effective in diagnosis and treatment of disease.
