The principle of Dabur Chyawanprash
Ayurveda looks beyond individual symptoms into the total human system
the sharir (body), manas (mind) and atma (soul).
Ayurveda recognizes three basic forces or elements that control that control all physical and mental processed. Vita controls moments within the body. Pitta controls digestion and all biochemical processes. Kapha controls the tissue fluids, cell growth and firmness of the body. Imbalance of three forces causes illness. Ayurveda prevents imbalance or restores balance.
Ayurveda sees the totality of a human being as a dynamic balance of myriad related, often contradictory, elements in motion. Looks for clues not only in the body, but in behaviour patterns, moods and thoughts. It seeks to allay symptoms by correcting the total balance, not attacking individual symptoms.
True. Ayurveda cannot compete with modern science in many emergencies. But in an environment of over-drugging, chronic and degenerative ailments, new viruses and super bugs outstripping new cures. Ayurveda does promise real long-term benefits. Sometimes as substitutes, sometimes as effective support therapy and preventives, at a negligible social cost.
