Why should I choose Ayurveda?
Ayurveda aims at rooting out most chronic & degenerative diseases, whereas, other systems of medicine are palliative and relieve only the symptoms. Ayurveda works at three levels viz., prevention, curation, rejuvenation. It works on internal as well as external immunity. It deals with causative factors rather than the symptoms.
Are there any side-effects of the treatment?
No, unless it is prescribed injudiciously. Hence, it is advisable to be treated by a qualified Ayurveda Practitioner only.
How does Ayurveda help in treating chronic and degenerative disorders?
Ayurvedic treatment is based on restoring the disturbed balance of the three Doshas - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The treatment aims at tackling the Doshas effectively to be brought to a state of equilibrium. The Doshas that have diminished activity have to be nurtured, the hyper Doshas have to be subdued, and aggravated Doshas have to be eliminated, through purification procedure (Panchakarma) thus bringing them to normalcy. Ayurveda is known to help in treating chronic and degenerative disorders. Treatment is tailor made to suit individual needs and could be broadly classified into Panchakarma, Diet, Herbal medications coupled with Yoga and Meditation.
Do I have to follow up ? If yes, for how long?
It depends on the chronicity and severity of the disease. It also depends on the doctor‘s assessment and the age of the patient.
