Ayurveda is the most ancient natural healing system of the world. The word Ayurveda means the Science Of Life. It is to do with healing through herbs and natural means. This system is a part of Vedic science and goes back to more than 4000 years B.C. This healing system was formulated by the ancient Hindu saint "Dhanvantary," who was a enlightened soul. Vedic sciences include yoga, meditation, astrology, and ayurveda. Thus it is a branch of the holy sciences. Ayurveda includes herbal supplements, right kind of diets, and right kind of living. Therefore the spiritual aspect is very much inherent. Ayurvedic healing became very popular and spread to other parts of the world like Tibet, Sri Lanka, Burma, and China. The Buddhist monks applied the science to their practice. Many monks were Ayurvedic doctors. As per the spiritual culture and belief of ancient Hindu scriptures, diseases arise out of two main reasons. First, because of physical and biological disorders, which is generally treated with herbs, diet correction and certain yogic exercises. Second, because of bad karmic effects, which require greater application and understanding. The treatment for these kinds of diseases may need various kinds of methods like gem therapy, mantric healing, certain prayers, diet, and inner rectification of the self. While the physical body may have a strong energy, the astral body may have dark energies, which can perplex a person.

Ayurveda believes in five great Elements (Devanāgarī: पंचतत्व‌; earth, water, fire, air and space)-- to compose the Universe, including the human body. Doshas are the 3 energies that govern the body; vata, pitta, and kapha. At conception we were created with a unique blend of the 5 great elements (ether, air, fire, water, earth). That unique blend is called our prakruti or individual body constitution. Our prakruti is a combination of the three doshas vata (ether + air), pitta (fire + water), and kapha (water + earth). Since prakruti is made of the 3 doshas, knowing what your dosha(s) is, is key to maintaining your health. Once we know what doshas are dominant in us, we know what our balanced state should be. This is extremely important because with this knowledge we are able to notice when the body goes out of balance AND we know how to bring it back to balance. Since we are little beings of nature and are made of the same 5 elements, we can use the opposite elements to bring us back to balance. In India, Ayurvedic medicine has quite complex formulas with 30 or more ingredients, including a sizable number of ingredients that have undergone "alchemical processing", chosen to balance the three Doshas. Chyle, blood, flesh, fat, bone, marrow, and semen are believed to be the seven primary constituent elements (Devanāgarī: सप्तधातु) of the body. Ayurveda stresses a balance of three substances: wind/spirit/air, phlegm, and bile, each representing divine forces. According to Ayurveda, these three regulatory principles--Doshas (Devanāgarī: त्रिदॊश्)—vata (wind/spirit/air), pitta (bile) and kapha (phlegm)—are important. In Ayurveda, the human body perceives attributes of experiences as 20 Guna (Devanāgarī: गुन, meaning qualities). Surgery and surgical instruments are employed. It is believed that building a healthy metabolic system, attaining good digestion, and proper excretion leads to vitality. Ayurveda also focuses on exercise, yoga, meditation, and massage.Thus, body, mind, and spirit/consciousness need to be addressed both individually and in unison for health to ensue.



The concept of Panchakarma (Devanāgarī: पंचकर्म‌) is believed to eliminate toxic elements from the body. Eight disciplines of Ayurveda treatment, called Ashtanga (Devanāgarī: अष्टांग), are given below:
* Surgery (Shalya-chikitsa).
* Treatment of diseases above the clavicle (Salakyam).
* Internal medicine (Kaaya-chikitsa).
* Demonic possession (Bhuta vidya): Ayurveda believes in demonic intervention and—as a form of traditional medicine—identifies a number of ways to counter the supposed effect of these interferences. Bhuta vidya has been called psychiatry.
* Paediatrics (Kaumarabhrtyam).
* Toxicology (Agadatantram).
* Prevention and building immunity (rasayanam).
* Aphrodisiacs (Vajikaranam).

Peggy,  I do not have enough knowledge in this to offer you any advice, but I would suggest you &/or your friend check out Deborah King at her http://www.deborahkingcenter.com/   She sounds very knowledgeable and I have heard her lecture about the doshas on Hay House Radio.  She is a healer and an intuitive who works with the chakras and Ayurveda.   Another source of help would be Dr. MonaLisa Schultz.  She is an M.D., but also a medical intuitive, and well versed on a wide variety of therapies, including acupuncture and Chinese Traditional Medicine.  

 

I do not any personal experience with these people, but I have listened to them for over a year, (among others), and if I needed such services, they would be who I'd contact.  Just throwing them out here as a possible source of help.

I have a friend who is growing uterine polyps.  This is a new phenomenon. She is in her 60s, and is post-menopausal. This sounds to me like a Kapha imbalance.  Anyone have any comments, suggestions, whatever?
