In Ayurveda, health is defined as a balance between the body, mind and soul, in harmonious relation with the social environment and nature:

“A person whose functional principles (dosha), digestive fire (agni), tissues (dhatu), excretions (mala) as well as their activities are normal and whose soul, sense organs and mind are calm and clear, is called healthy (svastha) .” (Shushruta Samhita, Su IV, 10)

Traditional ayurvedic literature conveys a wide-ranging understanding of physiology, of physiopathology and of the pathological process in a different light from modern western medicine. Ayurveda draws on its own efficient diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic tools, enabling reliable design of treatment protocols and prognostics.

The list of successfully treated pathologies  is a long one. While Ayurveda’s main claim to fame is its efficacy with chronic pathologies, it is also highly effective in a number of acute states.
