Ayurveda Medicine
« on: October 15, 2016, 01:49:36 AM »
Note from Barb: I must admit  I am not an expert in Ayurveda. I have picked up some info here and there over the years...
The practice of Ayurveda is over 5,000 years old, at least.

Stray notes: I have been told I am predominantly Vata but am probably tridoshic. [Being a vata-pitta-kapha type means that all three doshas are strong forces in your constitution.]

Dosha:  (in Ayurvedic medicine) each of three energies believed to circulate in the body and govern physiological activity.

I will be posting info as I find it. This is listed as a psudoscience in wikipedia. I just read that. For whatever reason I am being led back to an interest in this method.
Please feel free to post what you know, your thoughts and experiences.

Here are just a few links to start out with:  the first is a free ebook download and other info:

https://www.banyanbotanicals.com/info/prakriti-quiz/

Prakriti is your basic constitution. It is determined at the moment of conception and relates to your genetically inherited physical and emotional qualities. Prakriti specifically relates to those qualities, characteristics and tendencies that are stable. For instance, while you may experience temporary changes, like gaining or losing ten pounds, feeling nervous or irritable, developing a cold or flu, etc., in the natural course of life you will never gain or lose five inches on your height or experience a change of eye color.

Prakriti is enlivened and described by three main doshas or forces: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These are loosely translated as Air, Fire and Earth, respectively. Each of us has all three doshas in our constitution, in unique proportions.

In Ayurveda, seven dosha-predominant Prakritis are described: Vata-predominant, Pitta-predominant, Kapha-predominant; three dual Prakritis, where two doshas are equally, or nearly equally predominant: Vata-Pitta predominant, Pitta-Kapha predominant and Vata-Kapha predominant; and one Prakriti that has all three doshas equally prominent: Vata-Pitta-Kapha predominant.

Note: Even a thoughtful test cannot take the place of an evaluation by a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner. The results of this test may give a good indication of the primary doshas in your Prakriti but the evaluation of your practitioner may be more accurate.

Thank you for posting this.  I have one dvd video on Ayurveda and it's really dynamite.  And it only touches the surface.  They feature a number of separate ailments/illnesses and how each is treated in the particular situation.

Further there is a discussion among some of the practitioners regarding the many, many manuscripts that still to this day have not been scrutinized and/or translated.  They even showed some of the "scrolls" or whatever form/medium they are in, and discuss the fact that many of them haven't been seen for hundreds of years, or longer.

IIRC, the title of what I saw on DISH years ago is:  Ayurveda:  The Art of Being.  If anyone can see it, I urge you t do so.
