Ayurveda and health


Ayurveda and health - the need to know how to maintain health


The main purpose of Ayurvedic knowledge

Since the dawn of civilisation, the traditional AYURVEDA system has prioritised health. For Ayurvedic practitioners from ancient times the rules of health became an integral part of their spiritual life.

That is why in traditional Ayurvedic works there are many descriptions of practical methods to ensure a healthy lifestyle. In these writings, it is described in detail how to live healthily and how to proceed in order to maintain your health.

The main purpose of traditional Indian knowledge of life - AYURVEDA - is to preserve the health of the healthy and eliminate the diseases of the sick.

A perspective on the present situation

Nowadays human nature tends to become more and more taken over by the mirage of the senses. Everyone wants happiness, but the real basis of happiness is health, but very few are really interested in it. People take a greater interest in their bodies only when they fall ill and then go to the doctor.

Patients often ask their doctor to offer them remedies that can quickly suspend the symptoms of the disease. Many people want this to happen instantly and the corrective intervention to take place as soon as possible, without being interested in real healing and deep regeneration of their being.

Because of this constant disregard for real health, the vast majority of people do not have sufficient immunity to fight disease, and their vitality decreases day by day.

Most of the time people get sick from common causes, most of which are avoidable. When someone goes to the hospital, he finds there a few people or even a lot of patients who are admitted, and then he has to spend a lot of money for treatment. Also, every day new drugs appear on the market. New and new advertisements for medicines appear and so the man ends up spending more and more money on medicines.

Yet, seemingly paradoxically, with all the new medical facilities and despite the advent of new and very powerful drugs, it is still not possible for humans to stop diseases or stabilise health. This is because people are becoming increasingly indifferent to their health.

Education and prevention

Of course, to treat a disease it is essential to do a proper treatment and to this end to use effective remedies, but if we also take care of natural prophylactic measures and proper health education, so that the disease in question can stop occurring, the number of those sick will continue to grow.

In fact, what is very necessary today is to create conditions so that human society needs less and less medicine. This goal can only be achieved if people will attach more importance to their health than to "inviting" disease into their bodies and then depending on medicines.

People need to keep active, alert and most of all interested to maintain their health.

The formative role of Ayurvedic science

As a science of life, AYURVEDA teaches us that knowing how to maintain your health is a vital necessity for everyone. Such knowledge, like traditional Ayurvedic knowledge, is very valuable. However, not only knowledge is essential, but whenever we learn something practical about how to maintain our health, it is also essential to apply this knowledge.

By realising the importance of health and applying what we learn from this ancient science - Ayurveda - we can maintain our health.

This kind of inclination to use all available knowledge to maintain our health comes from within, because it results from a natural habit.

We must realize that having a healthy body is one of the greatest achievements of our lives and that success in life depends on our health. Keeping ourselves healthy is a great personal achievement and getting sick is the greatest shortcoming, because diseases destroy human health and well-being.
