Now, the most interesting thing about these aspects is that with Western medicine, you have to address each of these individually and separately to live a wholesome life. But if you adopt an Ayurvedic lifestyle, you will cover all of these together.
This is because Ayurveda is not just about yoga or meditation alone. It is a holistic healing system and wellness science that’s based on centuries-long and in-depth knowledge about the human body in its entirety. Ayurveda is founded on the belief that all external symptoms and indications can be traced back to their roots, internal imbalances, whether those imbalances are in the body or in the mind.
For example: let’s say you have trouble falling asleep at night. You stay awake for hours and hours, tossing and turning, counting sheep, but you often see the clock well past 3 AM before you’re actually asleep. And just when you’ve dozed off, the alarm goes off again.
What does your doctor recommend? Tablets or pills to help you fall asleep at night.
Similarly, if you have some vitamin deficiencies due to poor nutrition, they’ll recommend you take a vitamin supplement or multi-vitamins.
But those merely mask the symptoms. They don’t address the root cause of the disease.
Poor sleeping habits may be caused due to disease in your body, but may also come through an imbalance in the mind. And that doesn’t get fixed by taking sleeping pills which often lead to dependency.
Instead of fixing every issue individually, Ayurveda goes deeper and looks at the root cause of those imbalances. And because of that, you’re not simply masking one symptom at a time, but you’re actually initiating holistic health from the inside out.
Result? You may see improvement in more than one aspect, only by making one simple tweak in your diet or lifestyle.
The 6 dimensions listed above have been pillars of Ayurveda for thousands of years.
