The World Health Organization defines health "as a state of complete physical, mental and Social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". Physical Health, Mental Health and Social well-being are the three important pillars of health in a human being. Ayurveda is known as the "Science of Life". It is derived from two Sanskrit terms "Ayur" which means life and "Veda" which means knowledge. Ayurveda is the knowledge of life and longevity, is the oldest, most comprehensive scientific discipline, a complete health care system or healing system that was preached, practiced and documented in the ancient times by omniscient sages. This knowledge was revealed to them in their spiritual pursuits and was then dissipated to mankind around 5000 years ago for their well-being.
The current synthetic lifestyle of modern man has led to many health hazards. The stress and strain of day-to-day life is a major factor for many chronic diseases. Lack of exercise, polluted environment and climatically unsuitable menu further drains away energy. There are no side-effect-free treatments in the modern system of medicine for ailments like Arthritis, Spondylitis, Lumbago, Slip Disc, Frozen Shoulder, Stress & Strain, Sciatica, sinusitis, depression etc. However thousands of years back, in antiquity, remains a science that is today gaining wide acceptance and popularity, a system of medicine which could deal with its natural remedies, most of the so called incurable diseases. The science, the mystery, that is "Ayurveda" was preached and practiced in ancient times by the omniscient sages. As revealed to them in their spiritual pursuit, it evolved into a complete health-care system. But the modern medicine has put this science in the shade, albeit temporarily. The failure of modern medicine to counter these ailments without side effects has again brought the science into the limelight.
The basic philosophy of Ayurveda is to make people aware of their life style, diet, exercise and mental activities to achieve a prefect balance in mind, body and soul. Literally, it focuses on uninterrupted physical, mental and spiritual happiness and fulfillment. So, Ayurveda focuses on absolute perfect health and not disease. On the other hand, the modern medicine stresses only on the body and neglects the mind, senses and the soul. Any infirmity in the mind, senses and soul leads to illness in the Ayurvedic definition.
The system of Ayurveda has evolved into a most practical and sensible preventive system in the world over the years through processes of experience, observation, experimentation and intuition. It is practiced intact even in today's technology-driven world. Ayurvedic Panchakarma Therapy has methods to totally rejuvenate the body and mind. These procedures improve the physical and mental activity measurably. While modern systems prescribe medicines which concentrate on maladies, Ayurveda focuses its main attention on health, its insistence on keeping the mind and spirit strong by orbiting the inherent vital strength with herbal remedies and natural invigorating methods.
The popularity of Ayurvedic medicines and philosophy is fast growing even in most Western countries due to the growing popularity of Yoga. It is simultaneously social, spiritual, emotional, psychological and medical science. It has gained significance in this modern world due to its uncannily holistic approach to the well-being of the individuals. In the health care centers, Ayurveda is the governing principle behind integrating treatments and developing specific life style management programs. Founded on the wholeness of mind, body and spirit, the art and science of Ayurveda is emerging as an important health care option even in other part of the world. Holistic health is one of the trends of the modern world and complementary medicines is viewed by many as a solution to the rising incidence of chronic illness and diseases and spiraling health and medical care costs.
