“This holistic system of healing is very safe because it uses natural herbal ingredients and as a result, it is totally harmless and at the same time highly beneficial, effective, and curative.”
WHAT IS AYURVEDIC MEDICINE?
The ancient Indian medical system, also known as Ayurveda, is based on ancient writings that rely on a “natural” and holistic approach to physical and mental health. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest medical systems and remains one of India’s traditional health care systems. The ayurvedic treatment combines herbs, diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
WHY CHOOSE AYURVEDA TREATMENT?
To make a diagnosis, the Ayurvedic practitioner at Ayur Healthcare will do disease analysis with a deep and detailed examination of each individual. This examination helps the Ayurvedic practitioner not only to diagnose the disorder but also to decide customized treatments for each patient.
At Ayur Healthcare the Ayurvedic practitioner will not just focus on treatment or medicine to heal the illness but also concentrates on the techniques that will strengthen the healthy elements inherent in the body, which will in turn help the individual to prevent diseases and to recover. Treatments and medicines are a vital part of this process, and it supports the body’s self-reparation.
According to Ayurveda, diseases are due to an imbalance of Vata, pitta, and Kapha dosha. Determining the individual’s predominant or aggravated dosha, and then identifying the root cause of a disease or imbalance of dosha, requires precise training. At Ayur Healthcare highly knowledgeable and well experienced Ayurvedic doctors will provide authentic Ayurveda treatment in Sydney.
TREATMENT PRINCIPLES IN AYUREVDA
Herbs and herbal formulas
This ancient practice is key to Ayurvedic medicine, which explains that the mode of action and effectiveness of every herb is determined by its virya (active principles), ras (taste), and vipak (post-digestive effect on the body). Thus the Ayurvedic administration of herbs is considered a precise science, requiring deep knowledge of plants and their effect on human physiology, biochemistry, and psychology.

The regimen includes massage, steam treatment, Vamana (induced vomiting), virechana (use of prescribed herbal and oil-based laxatives), and Basti (medicated enema), and Nasya (a nasal treatment). These treatments are followed by a strict dietary and herbal regimen, a rejuvenating therapy, and recommendations for daily routines.

AYURVEDA DIET AND NUTRITION
How does it work?
The Ayurvedic diet sets guidelines for when, how, and what you should eat based on your predominant dosha, or body constitution type.
According to this diet, your dosha determines which foods you should eat to get the inner balance of dosha. And this also involves eating or restricting certain foods based on your dosha, or body type.
For example, the pitta dosha focuses on cooling, energizing foods, and limits spices, hot and fermented food, nuts, and seeds.
Meanwhile, the Vata dosha favors Lukewarm, moist, nourishing, and grounding foods while restricting dried fruits, bitter herbs, and raw veggies.
The Kapha dosha limits heavy and cold foods like nuts, seeds, and oils in favor of light and easy fruits, veggies, and legumes.
Red meat, artificial sweeteners, fermented food, preservatives, and processed food items are limited or restricted for all three doshas.
The Ayurvedic diet is an eating pattern focused on promoting balance within your body by following guidelines for your specific dosha, or body type.
Ayurvedic diet and nutrition practices are vital to healthy living and are important components of treatment, recovery, and disease management. Dietary practices are customized to each individual’s constitution, with six primary “tastes” forming the basis for Ayurveda doctor’s recommendations:
Sweet: promotes strength and nourishes all tissues
Sour: stimulates digestive power
Salty: maintains water-electrolyte balance
Pungent: improves digestion and absorption
Bitter: stimulates all other tastes
Astringent: helps in absorption
The Ayurvedic diet has specific guidelines for each dosha, but in general, Ayurveda encourages eating whole foods like grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and legumes.
Ayurveda also recommends minimizes processed foods, which is unhealthy and often lack important vitamins, fibers, and minerals.
Eating higher amounts of processed foods may be associated with a higher risk of heart disease and cancer.
Thus, the Ayurvedic diet helps to prevent chronic disease and promote better health.
The Ayurvedic diet is a meal plan based on the principles of Ayurvedic medicine, a form of traditional medicine dating back thousands of years.
