Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, where "ayur" means life and "veda" stands for knowledge or science. So roughly translated it means the knowledge of life, or, the science of life. In Ayurveda all living and non living things are linked together. Humans and plants consist of five basic components, called ‘Panchbhootas’. These basic components are earth, water, air, fire and ether (space). The non-material omnipresent qualities, which govern all material forms of basic matter are consciousness or intelligence called "Sattva", motion or action called "Rajas"and inertia called "Tamas". Sattva, Rajas and Tamas are together known as "Gunas". The Panchbhootas and Gunas dictate the medicinal and healing properties of plants. The human body is a replica of the universe. The basic components give rise to three life forces called "Dosha". Dosha is often roughly equated to biologic constitution. Ayurvedic body & mind types are basically divided into three major categories called "Vata", "Pitta" and "Kapha". These three Dosha are constantly formed in the body from the food we eat and other physiologic processes.

 Psoriasis


Psoriasis  is an autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system mistakes the skin cells as a pathogen, and sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis is not contagious.[1] However, psoriasis has been linked to an increased risk of stroke, [2] and treating high blood lipid levels may lead to improvement.[3] There are five types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular and erythrodermic. The most common form, plaque psoriasis, is commonly seen as red and white hues of scaly patches appearing on the top first layer of the epidermis (skin). Some patients, though, have no dermatological symptoms.

In plaque psoriasis, skin rapidly accumulates at these sites, which gives it a silvery-white appearance. Plaques frequently occur on the skin of the elbows and knees, but can affect any area, including the scalp, palms of hands and soles of feet, and genitals. In contrast to eczema, psoriasis is more likely to be found on the outer side of the joint.

The disorder is a chronic recurring condition that varies in severity from minor localized patches to complete body coverage. Fingernails and toenails are frequently affected (psoriatic nail dystrophy) and can be seen as an isolated symptom. Psoriasis can also cause inflammation of the joints, which is known as psoriatic arthritis. Between 10-30% of all people with psoriasis also have psoriatic arthritis.[4][5]

The cause of psoriasis is not fully understood, but it is believed to have a genetic component and local psoriatic changes can be triggered by an injury to the skin known as the Koebner phenomenon.[6] Various environmental factors have been suggested as aggravating to psoriasis, including stress, withdrawal of systemic corticosteroid, as well as other environmental factors, but few have shown statistical significance.[7] There are many treatments available, but because of its chronic recurrent nature, psoriasis is a challenge to treat. Withdrawal of corticosteroids (topical steroid cream) can aggravate the condition due to the 'rebound effect' of corticosteroids.[8]

Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by moderate to severe headaches, and nausea. Although some believe it to be a neurological disorder, there is no evidence to confirm this theory. Migraines are about three times more common in women than in men. The word derives from the Greek ἡμικρανία (hemikrania), "pain on one side of the head", from ἡμι- (hemi-), "half", and κρανίον (kranion), "skull".

The Hidden Secrets of Ayurveda..

 

The Importance of Being Individual

                The message of Vedas is simple: in every aspect of life, including health, carve out your own niche. Everyone may not choose to aspire to immortality, but everyone does suffer from disease at one time or another during life. Because every human is born an individual, with individual peculiarities and idiosyncrasies, every human requires individualized treatment. The Seers therefore provided "The Knowledge of Longevity" with therapies which can be adapted to fit anyone's requirements, beginning with Ayurveda and continuing through Yoga to Tantra and beyond. In a world made for the masses there is little place for the individual, which underlines.

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which means the "Knowledge of life." Its roots are buried deeply in the ancient culture of India. In fact, Ayurvedic medicine is considered to be the oldest natural healing system extant, pre-dating even the Chinese system of medicine. Ayurveda is more than a medical science, however, and can only be understood when one realizes that it is intricately woven into the fabric of nature. Over five thousand years ago, spiritually enlightened persons known as Rishis or Seers, by close observation of nature and its relationship to man through a supramental state of meditation, imparted that truth from guru to disciple. Today, however, Ayurveda exits in texts, scribed in the form of melodious poetry. Because the roots of Ayurveda were born out of the realm of the Spirit, only with a spiritual orientation can one understand this knowledge.
