Ayurveda is the oldest system of health care and is still practiced today. The roots of Ayurveda are sown deep into the Indian traditions, but are still relevant in today’s times. Ayurveda is a system that is based on fundamentals that stay relevant irrespective of the age or times. The birth of COVID has witnessed the world coming even closer to Ayurveda. With the unavailability of medical facilities, Ayurveda became the savior of many. People started making Ayurvedic concoctions at home to prevent getting infected by the virus or even to increase immunity. Ayurveda is known to effectively cure many diseases without its medicines having much side-effects. The diseases have advanced, but so has Ayurveda. Just like you need to bring in some modifications to keep up with the everchanging world, it is also important to stay rooted. Similarly, Ayurveda is also rooted, but in order to cure the new age diseases, it has embraced the modern medical science.
Ayurpathy is a modern perspective on Ayurveda that uses a traditional Ayurvedic knowledge as its base while using modern science for bringing out the efficiency for the cure. Ayurpathy involves modern medical science tools and even biotechnical inventions along with the traditional Ayurvedic knowledge to bring about a revolution in the medical science. Rasa, Guna, Veerya, Vipaka and Prabhav are going to be the conventional Ayurveda. But Ayurpathy has the base of the conventional Ayurveda and the modern scientific disciplines like biotechnology, clinical pharmacology, etc. Ayurpathy is basically the mechanization and pharmaceuticalization of Ayurveda.
The science of Ayurpathy binds the base of the age old science of Ayurveda and the modern science well enough to catalyze the process of curing the ones that are diseased. Since the modern science of Ayurpathy carries the essence of the conventional Ayurveda, the branch of Ayurpathy being derived from the world of Ayurveda seems methodically reductionist. Ayurpathy as a practice goes a long way in providing a proper cure to the diseases rather than just a temporary relief to the pain caused by the diseases. The world of Ayurpathy is said to have the same benefits as Ayurveda, however, Ayurpathy is proven to be more modernized and a better fit to catalyze the process of permanent cure for the diseases of the modern world. Also, according to the Vedic knowledge, Ayurveda is interlinked with Yoga. Thus, it provides numerous health benefits. Similarly, since Ayurpathy is derived from the holistic science of Ayurveda, it too, is linked with Yoga and thus even though it is modernized, it is extremely good for the health.
Ayurveda has come a long way in curing many diseases without causing much side effects. The new science, is
derived from the same science of Ayurveda plus the benefits of the technology of the modern world. And when the best of two worlds meet, one being Ayurveda and the other being mechanization and technology of the modern science, the beauty of Ayurpathy is born. The science that deserves much more attention in today’s era.
