What Makes An Ayurvedic Diagnosis Unique

Ayurvedic medicine and Ayurvedic diagnosis are not intended to replace Western medicine but rather to complement it. Its focus is more preventative, whereas conventional medicine’s concentration is far more symptomatic. For Example, an Ayurvedic diagnosis would be pretty pointless in a trauma situation, where allopathic medicine is far better equipped to deal with the situation.

Ayurveda’s approach to health is to inhibit the disease from appearing in the first place, although an Ayurvedic diagnosis will also be used to treat pre-existing conditions. Today, Western medicine is highly advanced in treating acute conditions and physical trauma due to its technical sophistication and ongoing advancement.

The Western approach to health is to deal with the disease or condition after it has appeared. However, it lacks the understanding of the interconnectivity of these symptoms and the reasons why they keep reoccurring within the body, which Ayurveda diagnosis uncovers.

Why Ayurvedic Diagnosis Differs from Allopathic

For example, If a person is experiencing liver issues, an Ayurvedic practitioner will ask them about their unresolved anger issues during diagnosis. If a person is overweight, during diagnosis, they will ask them what they may be emotionally holding on to. If someone is unable to sleep, they will recommend they ground themselves by walking in nature.

Ayurvedic medicine upholds that our physical conditions reflect our mental conditions and vice versa. An Ayurvedic practitioner will only diagnose curative suggestions once they know about your childhood, your eating patterns, your daily schedule, your sleep patterns and in some cases, even your dreams.

A Diagnosis of Mind, Body and Spirit

They offer a holistic approach, including the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. They do not look just at a problem, but rather at all of the factors that may have caused the problem. Ayurvedic medicine does include surgeries, medical examinations, and other procedures, which we discuss later, and today, those procedures are still practised along with Ayurveda’s everyday dietary and lifestyle recommendations. As with any medicine, it’s important to know what you’re putting in your body rather than taking something just because it says it’s Ayurvedic.

Many Ayurvedic herbs used in diagnosis are used in treatments for a variety of ailments—some being pure and highly effective as a primary medication, while others are complimentary, However, in Ayurveda, the best and most effective medicine you can consume is the food on your plate, even if it comes from your ayurvedic doctors’ diagnosis
