5 countries where we can practice Ayurveda

Treatment of all diseases with the power of nature

For the Eastern World Ayurveda is a traditional medicine. Originated from India thousands of years ago, it is being applied in a finished state as a science and practiced for at least 5 millennia by finding a cure for all diseases.

It has had a very strong influence on the healing systems throughout the ancient world, which is seen today, for example, in the traditional medicine of Tibet and China. In Nepal and Sri Lanka, Ayurveda’s application is remarkably widespread. It comes as close as possible to Indian classical methods, the differences are in some herbal remedies. In Nepal, as well as in India, about 80 percent of the population resort to Ayurveda treatment. Which is natural because Ayurveda there is a state health policy. India has more than 180 college and university training centers in Ayurveda, and specialists are licensed by the government.

For several decades, this Eastern medicine has also been widely used in the practice of Western civilization. In 1985, the United Nations officially recognized the role of Ayurveda in preventive and effective treatment in an environmentally sound manner. Many Ayurveda clinics are found in the US, and there are also in Europe – Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Russia.

Therapies are entirely environmental – the different Ayurveda recipes mainly include combinations of herbs and natural curative oils. In some of the ancient treatises with descriptions and guidelines for the treatment of various diseases, small amounts of metals and minerals are also mentioned to be added to ointments to enhance the impact of other ingredients. The curative extracts can be obtained from  fruits of plants, leaves, stems, roots, seeds, from the rind. The combinations are numerous – ancient texts refer to 50,000 herbs with recipes for combinations. In some cases, animal products such as bones or milk are also used. The treatment complex also includes the complete purification of the organism – externally and internally from the accumulated different toxins, also yoga exercises, meditation.

Healthy or sick – depends on nutrition

For Ayurveda treatment should be known that it is strictly individual. Even in cases of one and the same illness, one should not use the remedies prescribed to another patient. When prescribed by Ayurvedic doctors after diagnosis they are effective, but when these are wilfully self-administered by another one, without a check-up and consultation with the doctor may not have affect, or even get to complications.

This is because Ayurveda heals the whole organism by regaining its energy balance, thus removing the basis for diseases development. These balances are an equilibrium between three forces in the body – Doshas. In this equilibrium, one Dosha, or two of them, have to some extent a preponderance. The exact ratio is determined by the human’s Dosha, according to which the treatment takes place. Thus, for one and the same disease, the beneficial for Pitta Dosha is one, for Kapha Dosha – another one for Vata Dosha – a third one. Apart from this, the patient may have concomitant illnesses that need to be had in mind. Therefore, a precise diagnosis is needed, such as at  Ayurveda Clinic Sofia, where Indian specialists work led by Ayurveda guru-doctors.


Another important thing about Ayurveda is that for this medicine the wrong diet gives the basis for the onset and development of all diseases. Incorrect meals are foods that do not comply with Dosha; inappropriate combinations; inappropriate meal times and harmful eating habits. That is why the principles of Ayurvedic eating must be respected also after healing, otherwise diseases will return again. Particularly harmful are bad eating habits. It’s about the mass practice of eating while watching a game or something on TV, listening to or watching news, doing some work, or simply “surfing” the Internet, and so on. With these habits we usually eat too much, and thus even useful food becomes detrimental.
