Ayurveda et médecine Ayurvédique





Ayurveda is the world’s oldest medical science, originating in India over five thousand years ago. The written source of this science is the Vedas and Ayurveda is one of the branch that treat about health in a very profound and precise way as much in the physical domain than more subtle subjects.


The disciplines of Ayurveda are divided into 8 branches of medicine: general or internal medicine (kaya cikitsa), ophthalmology: ear, nose, throat and eyes condition (salakya tantra), chirurgy (salya tantra), mental health or psychiatry (bhuta vidya), procreation and reproduction (vajikarana), paediatrics (kaumarabhritya), toxicology (agada tantra), geriatrics and longevity (rasayana).


As “Science of Life” Ayurveda propose a global vision of Man considering that every human being is not only a physical body, but a mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. This knowledge propounds the principle of natural balance within the body and harmony with the environment, as integrated entities and not separated from the natural world. Obtaining and maintaining balance within the body and mind, and the external environment, is one of the goals of this knowledge.


Living in harmony with the nature and according to natural principles

ensures complete physical health and peace of mind.


Modern life often violates the principles of natural living and make us lose contact with nature, through an increasing polluted environment in many aspects of life. Man has constantly to adapt to different conditions of life and as a result of this stressful and hectic life, we often feel empty and unsatisfied as well as physically sick, for reasons we can’t really identify. So, in case of being in harmony with Earth, we have adopted artificial practices that disturb the equilibrium of the mind and body and then make us anxious and depressed, not eating and sleeping properly, unable to concentrate or relax, lacking energy…


People are raised without a basic education of how the body functions, what is beneficial and detrimental from physical and psychological perspectives, how to prevent illness and how to achieve peace and happiness and enlarge the perspective of life.


Living naturally according to some principles can prevent the need of expensive medical treatment or suffering coming from debilitating conditions.


Learning to listen to the body and read the signals of distress

can help us to maintain health, making us more productive as well as contented.


Maintaining the physical health is based on nothing more complex than understanding the characteristics of the body and the qualities of the food we eat. Many of the remedies for common ailments can be simply and quickly prepared in our own kitchen with commonly available herbs and species. So, this ailment has no side effects or negative environmental impacts from the treatments, and the root causeof illness is treated rather than just the symptoms. These treatments need a regular maintenance and the need to see a doctor or specialist that can give you guidance for adapted treatment, nutrition and herbs according to the constitution and nature. To follow the Ayuvedic principles, we don’t need to reject modern life, but to be aware that we can avoid some things that disturb the being.



Ayurveda leave the space for spontaneity, for intuition, but always with a certain discipline to do the right things, to eat the right foods, to reach a more balance (“Sattvic”) attitude in everything, in all aspects of life.

The objective is to treat with a global and most complete understanding of every aspects of the patient physical, psychological and emotional nature to make accurate diagnosis. The patient is treated with dignity and respect, as a unique human being who has the responsibility and ability to recuperate fully with caring support.


Ayurveda propose different steps on the way of diagnosis


It can start with an introduction of some aspects of Ayurveda and its philosophy, followed by a consultation with the doctor in Ayurvedic medicine that consist on checking the pulse in conjunction withDarshana (pure observation and inspection), and Prashna (questioning). It is all three of these that must be employed to reach a complete diagnosis.

This diagnosis will determine the birth constitution (Prakruti), see the present imbalances and problems the person has (Vikruti) and decide accordingly for an adapted treatment that includes nutrition, dose of herbal supplements, all kinds of body care, through massages, Yoga and meditation for the subtle body, to prevent or detoxifying and regenerating the patient.


About the pulse

Ayurvedic Medicine has been using the pulse as a form of diagnosis since it was created 5000 years ago. Those who are familiar with modern Ayurvedic medicine think of the scenario where an Ayurvedic doctor takes your pulse, looks and check different part of the body.


The overall method of taking the pulse begins with the placement of the fingers. The index finger is placed below the radial styloïd. The radial styloïd is the protruding wrist bone on the thumb side of the hand of the pulse recipient. The middle finger and ring finger are placed next to the index finger. The pulse taking fingers are adjusted along the underside of the arm to find where the pulse is the strongest.





The basic principles of Ayurveda


  • The theory of Creation that describe the evolution and the different aspects of Life and Nature.
  • The 5 elements (Pancha Mahabhuta): earth, water, fire, air, ether that are contain in different ways and proportion in the human being according to the constitutions or in the nature.
  • The five bodies (koshas): the physical body, the senses, the vital energy, the mental or emotional body, the intuitive or subtle body (the Spirit and the Soul)
  • The 3 gunas: Ida (Tamo guna), Pingala (Rajo guna) and Sushumna (Sattwa guna).
  • The 7 subtle centres of energy (Chakras): Mooladhara, Swadisthan, Nabhi, Anahat, Vishuddhi, Agnya, Sahasrara.
  • The Marmas: They are vital areas or points that are much more affected by injuries than other parts of the body. It is an anatomical area where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet to form the seats of life. These places, as junctions are pulsating structures where pain exists, used by physicians and surgeons to heal and for massages to relax the body and get a general well being.
  • The 7 body tissues (dhatus):  there are the constituent that sustain  the physical body that have to be working well for a good health. They are: Rasa dhatu: plasma – circulating nutrient fluid in channels – Nutrition; Rakta dhatu: blood – Haemoglobin part of the blood- Oxygenation; Mamsa dhatu: muscle – Muscular tissue – Movement; Medha dhatu: fat -Lubricating wax –Lubrication;Ashti dhatu: bone – Supporting structure – Support; Majja dhatu: nerve – Nervous tissue – To transmit information, understanding; Shukra dhatu: semen/ ovum – Reproduction – Reproduction
  • The 3 biological elements (Doshas)Vata-Pitta-Kapha which are the 3 concepts of energy, the 3 concepts of Nature associate to elements or the 3 constitutions (humours). This 3 doshas find a position and have an action also in the body.
  • The constitution: it is the way to better understand our deep nature. It is the combination in a specific and different proportion of the doshas where one will dominate more than the other(Vata/Pitta/Kapha/Vatta-Pitta/Vatta-Kapha/Pitta-Vatta/Pitta-Kapha/Vata-Pitta-Kapha). Ayurveda consider the basic constitution that cannot change (Prakruti) and the constitution at a certain present time influenced by external parameters (climat, style of life), internal parameters (nutrition, hygiene, emotions, etc…) and variations (seasons, age, events, etc…) as human being is constantly moving and confronted to different things in life that can modify the basic constitution or disturb it. This changes are called vikruti. Ayurveda will try to correct some imbalances provoked by these changes according to the nature of each patient.
  • There are also 13 specific “flowing channels” of nutriment or “fires” in the body call Srotas: 1- circulation of Prana through respiratory system with origin in the heart that distribute the blood and plasma and also absorb through the colon (Pranavaha); 2- circulation of food (digestive system-gastro intestinal tract) with origin in the stomach and left side of the body (Annavaha); 3-channels of the water metabolism that govern assimilation of water and water containing food (Ambuvaha); 4- channels to convey perspiration with origin in adipose tissue and hair follicles to which sebaceous glands are connected (Apastambha-Svedavaha); 5- excretory system with origin in colon and rectum (Purishavaha); 6- urinary system with origin in bladder and kidneys (Mutravaha); 7- the plasma and lymph(Rasavaha); 8- blood circulation (Raktavaha); 9- muscle tissue (Mamsavaha); 10- fat tissue (Medovaha); 11- nervous system (Majjavaha);  12- bone tissue (Asthivaha); 13- reproductive tissue(Shukravaha);  we can had two more srotas for women menstruation and lactation.
  • The 13 physical needs that we have to avoid to repress because they may accumulate toxins: to sneeze, to cough, to urinate, to defecate, to swallow, to yawn, to sleep, to cry, to find its breath, to eliminate intestinal gas, to eructate, to vomit, to ejaculate.
  • The  3 malas: it is the elements in the body to eliminate as defecation, urination and perspiration that can take also a mental or emotional aspects ( to eliminate a thought)
  • Toxins (amas): if we eat in excess, not enough, some old food or food taken irregularly, not digested or some heavy medication, changes, etc… we may develop toxins that are the enemies of health. All the treatments will tend to eliminate these toxins for the good health and well-being of the patient.
