Ayurvedic medicine, or Ayurveda, is a medical philosophy developed in India thousands of years ago to address disease and the overall health, wellness, and balance of an individual. Today, it is used as both as a primary method of healthcare and also as medicine complementary to Western medical practice. However, there is much more to Ayurveda than Ayurvedic medicine—Ayurveda is a philosophy of health that can be applied to all areas of one’s lifestyle, including the physical. The best Ayurveda hospitals understand this and help to address all areas of well-being for their clients who seek better wellness.
The Physicality of Healthcare
According to Human Kinetics, a dedication to wellness is the devoted pursuit towards an enhanced quality of life, potential, and personal growth by adopting specific attitudes regarding our health. From this point of view, the various aspects of wellness are physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual health—and the physical aspect is important! Just think of how many times you’ve heard the compound phrase “diet and exercise.” What is the Ayurvedic equivalent, you might ask? Yoga!
The Connectivity of Yoga And Ayurveda
Kashinath Metri of the SVYASA Yoga University describes how Ayurveda promotes the seeking of balance to restore health or prevent pathology. Similarly, the practice of yoga and associated meditation and breathing exercises promote the restoration and maintenance of this balance within those dedicated to the practice and adherent to a lifestyle yoga program. In this way, Ayurveda and yoga complement one another in both goals and lifestyle applications.
In other words, the practice of yoga is said to aid in the relief of spiritual suffering, which is inherently linked to physical and mental areas of health and wellness.
