According to Ayurveda
, man is believed to have a universe within himself, also known as microcosm. He is the manifestation of the macrocosm which comprises all the cosmic forces of the external environment. The individual existence of a man cannot be separated from the entire cosmic manifestation. Health and diseases in Ayurveda
reflect holistic terms which take into consideration the inherent association between the cosmic spirit and the individual, energy and matter and also cosmic consciousness and the individual.
Ayurveda teaches that every human being constitutes four spiritual and biological instincts namely procreative, financial, religious and the instinct towards freedom. The fulfilment of all these instincts can be accomplished by a balanced good health. Ayurveda is immensely beneficial for regaining health by a diseased person and for maintaining the state of well being by a healthy person. This medical-metaphysical life-science of healing is in fact regarded as the mother of all healing arts. The practice of Ayurveda bestows great benefits and helps in promoting health, human happiness and creative growth.
Anyone can acquire the practical knowledge of self healing by studying the teachings of Ayurveda. The proper balancing of all the bodily energies is the prime requisite to reduce the physical deterioration and diseases. Thus the self healing capability of the individual is the central concept of Ayurvedic science.
