Every individual has a self-healing power. The body uses this power in many occasions, even without our knowledge. The self-healing power is inherent in every individual. Ayurveda excavates the healing power inside a person.
Ancient medical systems have been insisting the self-healing power of every individual. It is the basic principle of Ayurveda to treat the patient and not the disease. This means that the Ayurvedic system finds out the inner constitution of the person who is ill and tries to rectify the imbalance that has caused that illness in the person. Every person has the power of self-healing and the medical system or the physician heals the sickness by making use of the self-healing power inherent in the person.
What causes a person to be ill?
Most of us will immediately give an answer that an infection, of a virus or bacteria has caused the illness or some breakdown of proper functioning of a certain organ led to the illness. We believe that it is the failure of some organ or excess flow of a hormone causes illness in us. Some of us believe that the toxic environment where we live in has triggered an illness.
All these answers reveal one truth – physical symptoms are caused by physical causes. This truth is verified by laboratory test and other clinical tests, by which the physician can see the defect and begin the treatment. Taking antibiotics to recover from an infection, injecting insulin to normalize the level of sugar or taking antidepressants to sleep for the night are based on the fact that physical causes can be regularized by another physical approach.
Many diseases still baffle the medical world. There are still many diseases which have not come under the realms of the medical experts. The medical world stands as blind-folded, unable to find out the causes of many diseases. Doctors become impatient and insurance companies turn sceptical in the treatment of such undiagnosed patients.
Excavate the power of inner healing. Nature has placed in every one the power of inner healing. Most of the times, the body heals itself by making used of its self-healing power which we may not even realize. Paracelsus says that the art of healing comes from nature and not from the physician which means that nature has put in every creature the capacity to heal oneself or itself.
Ayurveda believes in the self-healing power of nature. Ayurvedic system is based on the self-healing power of individuals. The basic principle of the system is to achieve healing by understanding oneself, by identifying one’s own constitution, and by recognizing sources of doshic aggravation.
Excavate your inner abilities to enjoy a good health. Healing is coming from inside, and not from outside!
