Q.What is the basic philosophy of health treatment in Ayurveda?
As per Ayurveda, ‘Health’ is a state of equilibrium of normal functions of doshas, Dhatus, malas and Agni with delighted body, mind and soul. It means that when Dosh-Dhatu-Malas and Agni are constantly in a state of functional equilibrium, then the health is maintained. Otherwise distortion of the equilibrium results into diseases. Erratic lifestyle is believed to be one of the basic causes behind the failure of mechanism of maintaining equilibrium.
Treatment either with or without drugs and application of specific rules of diet, activity and mental status as described, disease wise, brings back the state of equilibrium i.e. health.
Q. Diagnosis in Ayurveda?
In Ayuveda diagnosis is always done of the patient as a whole. The physician takes a careful note of the patient's internal physiological characteristics and mental disposition. He also studies such other factors as the affected bodily tissues, humours, the site at which the disease is located, patient's resistance and vitality, his daily routine, dietary habits, the gravity of clinical conditions, condition of digestion and details of personal, social, economic and environmental situation of the patient.
Q.Treatment in Ayurveda?
The basic therapeutic approach is, 'that alone is the right treatment which makes for health and he alone is the best doctor who frees one from disease'.

Treatment of the disease consists in avoiding causative factors responsible for disequilibrium of the body matrix or of any of its constituent parts through the use of Panchkarma procedures, medicines, suitable diet, activity and regimen for restoring the balance and strengthening the body mechanisms to prevent or minimize future occurrence of the disease.

Q. Does Ayurvedic treatment take a long time to heal ailments?
No. This is a common misconception regarding Ayurveda. The question you have to ask yourself is: are you looking for a quick fix or mere suppression of symptoms or are you actually seeking to dissolve the deep rooted cause of the imbalance and rejuvenate deeply? We recommend if you are looking for a quick fix or a quick suppression then Ayurveda is not the right modality for you. But if you are looking to get to the bottom of your imbalance then Ayurveda, in a relatively short time (you will be surprised) will begin to offer its benefits. In reality, the time to heal any imbalance depends on various factors – age, type of disease, degree of imbalance, whether it is acute or chronic, how many doshas, tissues, organs and channels are involved in the disease process. If the disease is newly formed and is with a single dosha and tissue involvement, then Ayurveda can balance this condition very quickly. On the other hand if the condition is formed with the aggravation of two or three doshas, and if more organs and channels are involved, and it has become somewhat chronic then naturally, the treatment takes longer time to restore this imbalance.
Q. Does Ayurveda offer Surgery?
Ayurveda does not recommend resorting to the knife at the first instance. It advocates simple parasurgical measures like blood-letting, application of warm and cold poultices of drugs, cauterization with alkalies and fire. These are best suited to persons unfit for surgery, and for non-emergency diseases. Many a time these act as supplements to surgery, help to avoid surgery and even complementary to it. Ayurveda expounds the concepts and skill in surgery from ancient times. Infact, Susruta the founder of Ayurvedic School of Surgery is rightly called as ‘Father of Surgery’. All surgical techniques such as incising, excising, scraping, puncturing, probing, extracting, draining and suturing are carried out even today. Surgical treatments for difficult diseases like Haemorrhoids, fistula-in-ano is offered. A unique method of treating rectal fistula by plugging it with a thread processed with vegetable alkalies (ksarasutra) has been found very satisfactory by modern surgeons and is becoming popular in western countries.
