The significance of Ayurveda.
In India is Kerala, in the south of the country, the paradise of Ayurveda, where the serene climate, the natural abundance of forests (with a large number of medicinal plants) and the cool monsoon season (from June to July, and from October to November) are ideal for a series of treatments offered by specialized and officially recognized centers, for example to treat arthritis, the nervous system or to enjoy special beauty massages for the skin and hair, based on of herbs and special oils. The rainy season, from June to September, is the ideal time for Ayurvedic treatments because the atmosphere, cold, humid and dust-free, helps the pores to open, making the body receptive to vegetable oils and therapy.
The ancient Ayurvedic medicine, born in India, seems almost 5000 years ago, originates from the ancient civilization of the Vedas, sacred texts from which the most ancient religion of the Aryan populations of India takes its name, Vedism, and from which the 'Hinduism. The term, Sanskrit, derives from "Ayur", life and from "Veda", knowledge, or "knowledge of life". Ayurvedic preventive and curative treatments approach the person in a holistic way, ie operating on different levels, in order to achieve their well-being, restoring the balance between body, mind and spirit. The modern lifestyle, the environmental conditions, our incorrect eating habits, the lack of physical exercise and relational tensions can create physical, emotional and spiritual imbalances that cause a disharmony that is the source of our discomforts and diseases. Ayurveda seeks the balance between man and all that surrounds him with which he is inevitably in constant interaction, aiming at the recovery of his self-healing abilities so that he becomes responsible for his natural state of health. According to Ayurveda, also philosophy and discipline of living, health is a balance between the three bodily humors or "doshas": they are the energies Pitta, Kapha and Vata, dependent on the elements present in the body, mind and soul, with which it expresses itself Cosmic Intelligence, and which, according to Ayurveda, are the idea that generated everything that is not spirit, therefore also man. Thus the creation of the Cosmos took place under the control of Pitta, the maintenance under the control of Kapha, the destruction under the control of Vata. According to Ayurveda, Vata, the "moving air", corresponds to air, ether (wind), represents movement and its anatomical site is the pelvic cavity and precisely the large intestine and colon and controls the functions of the system nervous and circulatory; Pitta, the "transforming fire" made of fire and water (heat) represents transformation and governs the digestive and metabolic system, resides in the abdomen, in the lower part of the stomach and in the small intestine; Kapha, the "luxuriant water", is water and earth (liquid), it resides in the bronchi and manages the endocrine and immune system, as well as body fluids. Man is therefore a unique combination of physical characteristics (e.g. those with dominant Kapha may have thicker hair and be slower), psychological and behavioral (e.g. people with dominant Pitta are usually more aggressive) than the individual retains for life and that affect the way he works, thinks and acts. But when the doshas are no longer in balance, Ayurveda intervenes through a non-invasive diagnosis, studying the patient's diet, his habits, his behavior, his physical characteristics and other factors, identifies the dominant dosha of the individual and goes to balance the doshas with each other. Ayurvedic healing therapies include a suitable diet, medical herbs, yogasana and meditation physical exercises, massages and propose social behaviors and positive relationships.
