Ayurveda, Indian medecine

An ancient science

Ayurvedic medicine is rooted in Indian culture. It's an ancient science based on a holistic approach to medicine. Traces of Ayurveda were found in Vedic texts which bring together the wisdom of India. Time to learn about it !

The principals of Ayurveda

  • Lifestyle can restore harmony between man and his environment.
  • Eating, digestion and assimilation are essential for health.
  • Medicine is a natural part of plants (341 recorded in the book), animals (177 identified) or minerals (64 listed).
  • Medicine is preventive rather than curative.
  • Emphasis is on practices such as yoga, meditation and massage.

The Doshas

Ayurveda believes in 5 five elements that make up the universe: earth, water, fire, air and ether. The balance of three doshas, present in every human being, Vata (wind / spirit / air), Pitta (water / fire) and Kapha (earth / water) is important for the body’s balance and harmony with the universe. Each type has its peculiarities, strengths and weaknesses.

To be healthy all 3 must be balanced!

  • Vata

Vata governs the movements of the body and mind. Too much Vata leads to anxiety, insomnia and constipation.

  • Pitta

Pitta controls the metabolism of body and spirit. Too much Pitta causes anger, ulcers and hair loss.

  • Kapha

This Dosha maintains the resistance of the body. It gives energy to the heart and lungs and promotes a good memory. Too much Kapha leads to weight gain and allergies.

  • Diagnosis

According to the Charaka Samhita, a patient must be examined ten times by the Ayurvedic physician, the Vaiday. It uses several methods such as observation, questioning and palpation (including the pulse, nadipariksha). It assesses the stability, abnormalities, measurements, nutrition, strength, digestion, age, etc.. and he deduces imbalances present and prescribe treatment.

The Care

Sweating is a way to open the channels and to dilute the Doshas responsible for blocking and various ailments. The steam baths are recommended to eliminate toxins.

Ayurveda treatments operate on the principle of dermal raw materials applied to the body, massage is thus a way of absorbing material adapted to the patient profile, such as sesame oil, castor, coconut, mustard Etc..
Massages are also support a broader cause (plants, diet …) and can cover all parts of the body.


In 1970, the Indian Medical Central Council Act was passed by the Parliament of India, to standardize the qualifications required to practice Ayurveda. In India, more than 100 colleges offer degrees in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.
