Preservation & Prevention through Ayurveda
The two fundamental aspects of Ayurveda are preventing diseases through preservation of the harmony and balance of the healthy body, and the curative properties through therapies & treatments to heal the diseased body. The ever-growing list of lifestyle diseases ( also known as ‘non-communicable diseases’ or ‘chronic diseases of lifestyle’) – be it insomnia, cardio vascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia ( lipids over the limit in one’s bloodstream), hypertension, and overweight/obesity can be effectively checked and controlled by Ayurveda for the simple reason that it looks at the holistic wellness of the body while addressing a condition, and not just the condition alone. If you are looking for lifestyle diseases prevention or cure, Ayurveda provides the best options.
In Ayurveda, the health and wellness of an individual, or the human body as such, is the sum total of his/her physical activities, the immediate environment, the mental and emotional activity with others, the seasons and how the body reacts to them – in short, good health is a multi-layered concept in Ayurveda.
The Economic Threat of Lifestyle Diseases
According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health for the WEF, “Cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, and other NCDs are estimated to account for 60% of all deaths in India, making them the leading cause of death – ahead of injuries and communicable, maternal, prenatal, and nutritional conditions.
Furthermore, NCDs account for about 40% of all hospital stays and roughly 35% of all recorded outpatient visits.”
The probability of dying during the most productive years (ages 30-70) from one of the four main NCDs is a staggering 26% !”
The Common Causes in Lifestyle Diseases
One doesnot need to look far to get to the heart of the common causatives that bring about these disease conditions of the human body – it is well-integrated into the ‘modern lifestyle ‘ that moves us from day to day. In a broad sense, our lifestyle diseases can be traced back to our eating habits ( irregular, binge-eating, dependency on comfort food), daily habits ( late rising, smoking & drinking)
and work ( repetitive physical activity, stress, stationary work mode, working environment that restricts access to sunlight and fresh air) and the unavoidable factors of heredity & age. Almost all of the above lifestyle diseases prevention can be effectively done with a holistic approach of treatment to the lifestyle disease, which is what Ayurveda does to help heal.
