Lifestyle Diseases : Prevention & Cure through Ayurveda

Preservation & Prevention through Ayurveda

Ayurveda has two fundamental aspects of good health. The first one is to prevent diseases through preservation of the harmony and balance of a healthy body. Similarly, the second one is to cure through therapies & treatments to heal the diseased body. The list of lifestyle diseases ( also known as ‘non-communicable diseases’ or ‘chronic diseases of lifestyle’) is growing fast. It now includes insomnia, cardio vascular diseases as well as diabetes mellitus. It also includes dyslipidemia (lipids over the limit in one’s bloodstream), hypertension and overweight/obesity. Ayurveda can control these because 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, we consider the health and wellness of an individual, as a sum of different factors. It is the sum total of his/her physical activities and the immediate environment. Additionally, Ayurveda also considers 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

As per a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, “Cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes, and other NCDs account for 60% of all deaths in India“. It thus makes them the leading cause of death. It is far ahead of other reasons like 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% !
