Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a traditional medical practice known in India since ancient times; today it is still more popular in the sub-continent than western medicine. Traditionally, Ayurvedic medicine is based on a series of elements, on which also its effectiveness depends. Typically, these elements are:

The patient, or person, who experiences needs, ailments, or an illness;
Medicinal and therapeutic instruments: a person’s lifestyle, eating habits, body cleansing and purifying routines;
The patient’s relatives, or his/her assistant, or the Ayurvedic practitioner performing the treatments;
The doctor, who has formulated a diagnosis and planned a therapy, and who coordinates all activities.

In Italy and, more generally, in the western world, Ayurvedic doctors perform several crucial activities, among them:
a critical assessment of the patient’s diagnosis, obtained following Traditional Allopathic Medicine: interpreting the outcome of medical tests and exams according to Ayurvedic medicine;
coordinating the different therapeutic treatments a patient may already be undergoing (Allopathic or Homeopathic medicine) with Ayurveda-based therapies;
providing the patient with information about conceptual and practical similarities and/or divergences between the Allopathic approach and the Ayurvedic one.

Quite often Ayurvedic medicine turns out to be a sort of last resort, elected after other therapeutic treatments have either failed or proven unsatisfactory. Ayurveda then is seen as a last “hope” – while keeping up hope is quite the Christian approach, it has nothing to do with any kind of medicine. Recovering from an illness is certainly possible, however, it is normally the result of a conscious and responsible choice to follow closely the path toward change one has been advised about.
To prove efficacious, all therapeutic treatments imply some kind of change.
Changing means “resetting” one’s habits and the therapeutic treatments one is undergoing. It is therefore necessary to lay out a new “values” system, as it were: emotional, rational, physiological, and relationship-based. An ailment is the outcome of a pre-existing energetic/psychic/spiritual imbalance, it is our organism answering a need.
Taking care of one’s health is, therefore, a conscious, responsible behavior aimed at achieving a real change; as such, owing to the need to modify certain ingrained habits, it requires some effort and it may result in “suffering” in some degree. Ayurvedic medicine’s instructions may minimize dedication, willpower, or hurt; however, they cannot be completely erased.
In order to feel better, you must listen to yourself.
