Ayurveda: The Science of Life
Ayurveda in Sanskrit means “the science of life” – an ancient system of health care which is widely practiced in Sri Lanka and India. It roots back deep into prehistory: description of a basic kind of Ayurvedic medical theory is found as far back as the second millennium BC, in the sacred proto-Hindu texts known as the Vedas.
Ayurveda is a holistic system which regards illness as the result of a derangement in a person’s basic make up. The Ayurvedic system holds that all bodies are composed of varied combination of five basic elements – ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Each body is governed by three doshas or life forces: pitta (fire and water), kapha (water and earth) and vata (air and earth). Illness is seen as an imbalance of these influences, and specific diseases are considered symptoms of more influential problems. Ayurvedic treatment aims to rectify such imbalances and Ayurveda doctors will typically examine the whole of a patient’s lifestyle, habits, diet and emotional proclivities in order to find the roots of a disease. Treatment often consists of encouraging a balanced lifestyle as much as administering specific therapies.
We at Giman Free Ayurveda Centre (Suwa Piyasa) attempt to create the atmosphere that is fundamental to the systematic approach to balance the three influences above.
Unspoilt beaches with no human disturbance, calm and shallow waters in the sea, large garden and wild vegetation which is home to medicinal plants, creates the ideal atmosphere that will meet the needs of the natural healing process.
