Ayurvedic treatment is based on personalized regime for each individual. God and nature created each of us in a unique way and medicine should take our individuality into account. Ayurveda stands for our individuality in theory and practice.
The personalized approach of Ayurvedic medicine is manifested in several conditions – when we consider the conditions of the Ayurvedic doshas or humors and when we select the Ayurvedic body types, when we select herbs, when we consider the age and timing of treatment, when we consider the geographic location of the person when providing advice on diet and lifestyle, when assessing an individual’s physical and mental capacity, and in virtually dozens of other situations.
Some medical authorities attribute the advent of social and preventive medicine entirely to modern medicine. Ayurveda has proven itself from the start two basic purposes – Improving health and preventing diseases. There are guides on nutrition, daily routine, hygiene, strengthening immunity and rejuvenation.
Ayurveda regards the appropriate treatment as that treatment which alleviates the disease and does not cause any other disease as a result of the treatment. This is achieved through the balance of qualities and the synergistic design and formulation of medicinal herbs. However, treatment without side effects is the most difficult goal for any therapy system.
Rejuvenating treatment is given so much importance in Ayurveda that one of the eight branches of ancient Ayurveda was dedicated entirely to rejuvenation, anti-aging, health promotion and old-age health.
Ayurveda views every human being as a physical, social, mental and spiritual being. For social integrity, Ayurveda supports both moral and spiritual principles and teaches that they are essential to the health of society.
