Ayurveda is a traditional branch of science that originated in India thousands of years ago. The study of Ayurveda is divided into eight parts, Kaya, Bal, Graha, Urdhwa, Shalya, Dhanstra, Jara and Vrishan. It is believed that every human is composed of Doshas which regulate and guide the structures and substances of the body. The understanding of the Doshas provides the base for the study of Ayurveda in India. Often considered as an alternative medicine, Ayurveda in India is more than a medical system, it is a science of life. It helps human beings to maintain equilibrium between the mind and the body. Ayurvedic medicines are made of herbs, minerals, metals and ingredients of animal origin. The treatment therapies of ayurveda really make for a refreshing experience.
Unani is a popular form of alternative medicine. Like Ayurveda, Unani too is based on the presence of classical elements in the human body. According to the belief, the elements are present in different fluids and their imbalance leads to ailment. Most medicines are made of herbs and food. The base of most Unani medicines is honey. Honey is believed to be endowed with healing properties.
Naturopathy believes in the natural therapy of healing diseases by using natural elements like sunrays, water, air and natural herbs complimented by a natural diet. It is also believed that naturopathy helps treat the most complex of diseases effectively. The success of naturopathy depends on the belief in this science and the self-healing properties of the body.
Homeopathy is a kind of alternative medicine that believes in treating patients with extremely diluted elements. It is believed by practitioners of Homeopathy that the therapeutic ability of a remedy can be increased by continuous dilution of the drug combined with shaking and succussion. Opposing the laws of Physics and Chemistry, Homeopathy believes that the potential of a medicine is enhanced by diluting it as it increases the spirit like medicinal properties. Homeopathic medicines are prepared from herbs, non-biological substances like salts, animal matter like duck liver and substances of human origin called nosodes.
