The Original Medicine and Not The Alternative
In this age of urbanisation and globalisation it is practically impossible for one to escape from stress and fatigue. The tone of success has become synonymous with words like debility, exhaustion, feebleness and so on. The human race wants instant results and in this process the brain fags out. To stop and look around is an act which has become obsolete, since men do not have the intent to look at anything which does not concern their financial well-being. “Mainstream medical science” has witnessed humongous and radical changes in its course of time, but what it could not achieve is that mankind has not been taught the need of medicine. We have succumbed to all sorts of weariness around us which brings an imbalance in the body-mind alliance which results in a manifestation of life-long ailments.
Ayurveda, which has become an integral part of the Holistic and Alternative Medical discipline, has changed lives around the planet. In-spite of it being called ‘alternative’ it is actually the ‘original’ source or in other words the roots of medicinal sciences. It stems from a time which has been considered as the most powerful period in human history ever where man and God have been with each other in extreme proximity.
Holistic medicine comprises of all the aspects of an individual’s personality to achieve the optimum state of wellness. It encircles the process of looking into one’s physical, spiritual, environmental, psychological, emotional and nutritional well-being. Though holistic or complementary medicine is not accepted by most conventional medical practitioners, these forms of medicine have changed the contour of human wellness. Rooted from metaphysical components and anti-scientific standards holistic medicine stresses on the fusion of the carnal and the spiritual. Conventional medicine defines individual health by putting a stop on a disease for a time being whereas alternative forms of medicine strive for the non-occurrence of the ailment in further future.
