Ayurvedic Prana Chikitsa
Ayurvedic Prana Chikitsa
In Ayurveda, the oldest system of healing still practiced, our experience of wellbeing is directly related to the energetics and biochemistry sustaining and harmonizing our body, mind, and spirit/consciousness. Prana is a Sanskrit word used to describe this biological masterwork. Prana is our vital energy. It governs our gross body movement as well as the processes of motion within our body, mind, and consciousness. For example, Prana relates to our respiration as well as the changes within our mental and emotional states.
Seasonal changes, life transitions, unsustainable methods of managing stress, worry and anxiety are a few root causes of misdirected Prana within our body, mind, and consciousness. However, we often to do not notice subtle signs of imbalance until we experience physical, mental, or emotional hinderances within our wellbeing.
Ayurvedic treatments for imbalances within the body, mind, consciousness are defined by various forms of Chikitsa. Chikitsa literally means inquiry, investigation, or exploration in Sanskrit; however, it is used in the Charaka Samhita, a Vedic medical text, to describe any method of addressing and treating disease within the body.
