Ayurveda medicine is one of the oldest medical systems and originated in India (niccih.nih.gov, 2021). The practice is based on the natural and holistic approach to both physical and mental health utilizing diet, exercise, and lifestyle. (National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, 2021).
Clinical trials have been done utilizing Ayurveda medicine for pain, osteoarthritis, diabetes and colitis in comparison with conventional treatments and or other herbs, with inconclusive results.
According to Ayurvedic medicine, illnesses may occur due to the imbalance that occur between the psychological and physiological body, causing the unbalance of your three life forces or energies (Dreier, 2021). Ayurvedic medicine suggests a consumption of “hot” foods and or drink such as ginger which is good for colds and congestion (Dreier, 2021).
As a proponent of holistic health, I find common sense with this practice and in conjunction with traditional medicine one can remain healthy and well.
