Ayurveda Treatments

Ayurveda is a form of alternative medicine that is native to India. The earliest texts that speak about Ayurveda remedies belong to the second century BC. Ayurveda emphasis that balance in the body can be established by proper lifestyle, diet, body cleansing and exercise.

According to Ayurveda, everything can be said to be made of five elements, air, water, fire, earth and space. Ayurvedic medicines are mainly plant based but a few also make use of milk and minerals. Fats, like clarified butter or ghee as it is known in India is also consumed and used externally. Various kinds of oils are also used in food, smearing, Ayurveda massage, anointing and application to areas that may be infected.

Ayurvedic practitioners are trained in the science for up to five years in an undergraduate course of study, so they are extensively trained. Others will study Ayurveda before or after their training as doctors, nurses, naturopathic doctors, etc.

Ayurvedic therapy has become popular in the west. Though many spas and salons offer Ayurveda treatments, they may not have received any formal training in Ayurveda. If you are interested in Ayurveda treatment, you must look for an Ayurvedic practitioner trained in the various Ayurvedic treatments.
