The emergence of modern medicine and technology dominates the existing health system. Meanwhile in today’s world the traditional Indian approach to health care called “Ayurveda” is gaining the greatest momentum.

Ayurveda, which translates to “science of life,” is based on the balance of three fundamental energies, or doshas, within the body: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Imbalance of these doshas affects our physical and mental attributes leading to ill health. Ayurveda is an ayurvedic practice which focuses on the individual constitution of people by advocating for dietary, lifestyle and therapeutic changes as well as herbs as part of therapy for those affected.

Several reasons could account for this revival. Secondly, many individuals are tired of side effects that come from using traditional medicine that is not personalized anymore. The Ayurvedic model is holistic and personalized providing both preventive and curative options. The modern wellness movement advocates for mental and emotional wellness along with physical health, which is reflected in its focus on balance and harmony.

Moreover new scientific researches are confirming the Ayurveda system’s practices. The studies mentioned above have proven that turmeric and ashwagandha are effective in several ailment treatments. This connects ancient wisdom with modern medicine thereby strengthening the authenticity of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda presents an individualized road map towards better health depending upon one’s original constitution and requirements in the era of personalized wellness. It is mindful, promotes a healthy lifestyle and uses naturally-connected practices which is what many people look for when they search for natural medicine. Nevertheless, one should seek professional guidance of adequately educated Ayurvedic professionals to maximize its benefits as well as minimizing risks involved.

The revival of Ayurveda is proof it has a place in the future where people try to restore balance between nature knowledge and modern technology for better health.
