Ayurveda "the knowledge for long life" or ayurvedic medicine is a Hindu system of traditional medicine in India.It literally means the science of life (Ayur = Life, Veda = Science) which is believed to have been passed on to humans from the Gods themselves.The ancient Vedic literature by sages has clearly laid out instructions to maintain health as well as fighting illness through therapies, massages, herbal medicines, diet control and exercise. The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the Vedic period in India,i.e., in the mid-second millennium BCE. Over the following centuries, ayurvedic practitioners developed a number of medicinal preparations and surgical procedures for the treatment of various ailments.
Ayurveda Rejuvenation Therapy, Anti Aging Treatment & Panchakarma
Rejuvenation means making young again. The term used in Ayurveda texts for the rejuvenation treatment is Rasayanachikilsa or Rasayana therapy. Rasayana is one of the eight branches of Ayurveda. As per an Ayurvedic definition, Rasayana means, that which destroys the old age and disease through the conservation, transformation, and revitalization of energy.
Rasa (Rus) in Sanskrit means juice, essence, emotion etc and ayana means path. Therefore rasayana roughly translates to - The path of the juice. Rasa (Rus) nourishes body, boosts immunity and helps to keep the body and mind in best of health. The main aim of Ayurvedic rejuvenation therapy or rasayana therapy is to restore spirit and vitality and thereby attain longevity.
In this stressful, over-busy and toxic world, our natural health, happiness and the inner sense of well-being are masked by the accumulation of impurities. These impurities or toxins causes deterioration of normal body functioning. A rejuvenation therapy can revitalize senses, detoxify the body, restore good health and young look and even increase resistance to diseases. Ancient Ayurveda texts say that rejuvenation therapy can bring back the youthfulness long after one has past that age and it can also increase the life span by many years. Ayurveda rejuvenation therapy is known to have cured chronic diseases which were otherwise impossible to find treatment for.
Panchakarma - The ayurvedic Rejuvenation Treatment
Panchakarma (pancha meaning five and karma meaning action) is the Ayurvedic rejuvenation treatment practiced today. This therapy is a traditional way of detoxification. Panchakarma is designed to restore the natural state of health and wellness by eliminating the root cause of all diseases. Along with the elimination of disease causing toxins, Panchakarma treatment also replenishes tissues with nourishment, softens and soothes the nerves and bones promoting tranquility of mind and thereby preventing the aging process.
