ayurvedic medicines

Ayurvedic medicine (also called Ayurveda) is one of the world’s oldest medical systems. It originated in India more than 3,000 years ago and remains one of the country’s traditional health care systems. Its concepts about health and disease promote the use of herbal compounds, special diets, and other unique health practices. India’s government and other institutes throughout the world support clinical and laboratory research on Ayurvedic medicine, within the context of the Eastern belief system.

Ayurvedic medicine uses a variety of products and practices. Some of these products—which may contain herbs, minerals, or metals—may be harmful, particularly if used improperly or without the direction of a trained practitioner.

What are the Main Differences between Ayurveda and Conventional Medicine?

  • The first and most significant difference between the ancient Ayurvedic medical system and modern medicine is that Ayurveda is a complete health care system.
  • The second difference is that Ayurvedic medicines are without any of the side effects typically experienced with conventional medicines.
  • The third main difference is that we work on the cause instead of the symptoms. You might ask -how is this done? Take, as an example, someone who has arthritis that is expressing symptoms of swelling and pain.
  • We must first find out how this condition is being created - that is, what is the cause? What is triggering the pain our patient is feeling? What has caused the swelling? There are many blocks in such a situation - one block is pushing another, which is in turn is pushing another, and still another is pushing it all. In this particular case we have to work through all the blocks to remove the first block, then the second, the third and, finally, the original block that was causing the symptoms of the disease, and then finally we can recreate the original balance.

    Another distinctive feature of SRS Ayurveda Clinic is that our customized medicines work simultaneously on the mind, the body and the emotions. They work on all of these levels together, not just the physical. We acknowledge that every individual is unique - people are not all the same. The mind works differently in everyone. This also sets Ayurveda apart from conventional medicine, which doesn't take people's individual differences into account.

    How Long do I Have to Take the Ayurvedic Herbal Medicines?

    There's an old saying: an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Although it depends on the disease which a person presents with, people will experience improvement within 10 to 15 days of being in treatment, or often sooner. The full course of the herbal treatment should be taken so that the disease is properly treated and the complete benefits can be achieved. One must remember that the longer one has had a disease, the longer it will take to completely restore the body to good health. Although most patients report feeling better very quickly, it still takes time to fully rebuild damaged tissues and muscles.

    For example, someone suffering from irritable bowel syndrome may experience relief from their symptoms and assume they are ready to discontinue the herbs. However, this is a mistake. Why? Because the herbs are essential to continue strengthening the bowel musculature, which will have atrophied because of the patient's long-term bowel problems. If treatment is discontinued before the appropriate time, the untreated disease can very quickly express its symptoms again.

    Similarly, women with menstrual problems taking our Ayurvedic/naturopathic herbs may experience relief after the first menstrual period. However, a more complete result will be achieved after the third menstruation when the reproductive system has had time to fully regain its proper functioning. So, it is important to continue the treatment without interruptions until the healing cycle is complete, otherwise the symptoms will reappear in a short time.
