Ayurveda stresses on offering natural health by preventing from various illnesses. If any ailment attacks a person, Ayurveda does not treat directly like the modern medicine that tries to suppress symptoms of the diseases in the body. Rather it searches for imbalance to the natural health of the individual because it is a natural health lifestyle. Along with this, this treatment can be taken hand in hand with other treatments, or even combined with other healing processes as a subsidiary healing method.
According to the concept of Ayurveda, chronic and neglected imbalances trigger ailments. The symptoms are the outcome of a long term’s disproportion in the Tridoshas. The patient approaching Ayurvedic, Naturopathic, Homeopathic or any kind of natural ways of healing to health should learn to be patient and cool because in these natural ways of treatment, healing and outcomes will never be seen overnight. Some comfort and progress might be visible within the first few weeks; nevertheless, actual and effectual healing of the ailment may take a long time (even more than a year) as these natural healing processes are done by modifying lifestyle, taking proper diet, and mutual aid of the individual along with their specialists.
As per Ayurveda, when there occurs an imbalance and disproportion among three doshas — vāta (air and space, or wind), pitta (fire and water, or bile) and kapha (water and earth, or phlegm), there originates a certain process of ailment within. It is merely the Ayurveda’s natural way of healing technique that alerts the patient about the constitutions of the Tridoshas and the impact of the imbalance of them on the patient. Besides this, it also recommends him/her with modified ways of life that can be precautionary and safe, and helps in equipping him/her with certain knowledge for stress. Undeniably this self-knowledge can facilitate the patient to catch hold of a balance and disease free life.
