What is Ayurveda?

Basics of Ayurveda

Ayurveda aims in bringing harmony in all levels of our existence the body, mind, intellect, senses and the soul. The perfect balance of these factors results in health and any disharmony results in disease.

Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether. These elements are represented in humans by three “doshas”, or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting a right balance of the three doshas / three bioenergies (“tridoshas”)

Ayurveda is not a “one-size-fits-all” system. Instead, its regimens are tailored to each person’s unique prakruti (Ayurvedic constitution), taking into account his or her needs for nutrition, exercise, personal hygiene, social interaction, and other lifestyle elements.

Ayurveda has two main objectives, maintenance of health of a health person and curing disease of the patient. To achieve these objectives- specialized dietary, life style, seasonal regimens, medicines made from herbs and spices, various external and internal treatments are used.

Ayurveda therapy is either palliative or purificatory. Panchakarma or the detox therapy is the most popular modality of treatment in Ayurveda. Customized treatment protocol is designed for each person after a detailed consultation to analyse the body-mind constitution, age, imbalances of doshas or bioenergies in the body etc.

How important is Ayurveda in the present era?

Most of the healing modalities treat only a part of the patient – the part which is considered as being ill — the material part. Ayurveda addresses the well-being of an individual in physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual planes in the belief that one cannot safely split a person into parts. For example, the Ayurvedic doctor may inquire into the way the person thinks, believing that thoughts manifest themselves in the biochemistry of the body. So in western medicine, after extensive diagnostics, often the disease or cluster of symptoms is isolated, and the disease becomes the sole area of attention. Triumph over that particular disease or set of symptoms is considered restoration of health. Not so in Ayurveda, which address the root cause of the disease, cause of its manifestation, triggering factors etc.

Also, Ayurveda is a natural therapy; hence it has fewer side effects when taken responsibly and on the advice of an expert. Most of the diseases we seen in today’s world needs a holistic approach as it is because of the result of stress, erroneous life style and diet.

Ayurveda helps us to understand about the body mind complex in a new perspective, understanding about body type, bio-energies their imbalances will help us to develop a body mind awareness. Rather than relying upon a pill to cure, Ayurveda triggers the healing energy from within.

The Ayurveda enables us to develop a tailor made diet and life style specially customized for you. Mostly adapting minor changes in the diet and life style patterns, introducing few spices and herbs can be life changing.

Testimonials

Anandakrishnan, Mumbai

I am happy to share my recent experience with ayurvedic treatment. I am 39 year old and the current COVID condition and the consequent work from home situation (sedentary lifestyle) resulted in me losing significant weight with 2-3 months. I was told to test my blood glucose levels (HBA1c) and was shocked to see the levels (~12). To confirm I even rechecked with Fasting and PP and the result correlated with the earlier tests (~250 and ~415 mg/dL). While just a year ago my levels were normal this sudden change of me becoming a diabetic worried me a lot. I knew a lot of people who take allopathic medicines and continue that for life. While I was exploring indigenous/alternative medicines, I did not know whom to contact. I was lucky enough that one of my colleagues referred me to Dr. Aparna.

Dr. Aparna listened to me through video consultation I was advised the next course of action on the diet, lifestyle changes which I needed to make along with ayurvedic medicines. I strictly followed the same and within weeks, I was able to feel the difference. Doctor keeps track of my health regularly and how I feel to adjust the medicines accordingly. Now (less than 2 months since I started the treatment), my levels are back to normal (98 / 107 mg/dl). Many of my friends whom I spoke earlier couldn’t believe that such significant changes can happen within the short span. All these happened even without meeting the doctor face to face. I would highly recommend both ayurvedic treatment methods and Dr. Aparna to anyone who seek my opinion.

Aparna was the lead Ayurvedic doctor during a Panchakarma retreat I attended in Bali. During the retreat she attended me with kindness and an inclusive manner often missing in Western medicine and opened my eyes to the world of Ayurveda; its history, heritage and benefits as an approach to both wellness and healing. All of which added to the benefit I obtained from the retreat and interest I have in continuing to use Ayurveda in my life.

Anneliese, Belgium

I had the privilege to have Dr. Aparna as my doctor during a 28th days Panchakarma. She is very caring, loving, supportive and she actually listens to you. She has an incredible knowledge and provides a lot of information and feedback in such a passionate and humorous way. Essential is, she healed my chronic pains and even after the treatment, she makes herself available to help you. Just the type of doctor everyone needs!

Shailaja, UK

“I would recommend Ayurveda to everyone, as it cures the ailments at a root level and not just the symptoms.
I found my consultation with Dr Aparna to be invaluable. My long standing acid reflux/heartburn and other issues due to pitta aggravation have significantly come down, very grateful for that!!
Dr Aparna has been amazing help and her simple dietary and lifestyle suggestions have made a huge difference to my health and well-being. She is very knowledgeable and has a genuine interest of patient’s health at her heart. I trust her advice and highly recommend her to anyone who needs the best Ayurvedic treatment.”

Nefrititi, USA

Dr. Aparna is an amazing doctor, she not only uses her medical knowledge, but she is very intuitive. Dr. Aparna is always open to explore other alternatives to help her patients heal. She makes herself available, so you never feel alone or as if you’re just another patient on her to do list. I had the honor of being treated by Dr. Aparna while in Bali and she really set the bar high for future doctors. I wish there were more doctors like her that made you feel valued and truly cared for.
