HerbWorks is a family run business with deep connections to India and holistic healing treatments. Based just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland. We believe all people should have access to 100% Vegetarian treatments where there are Zero Side Effects and the Root Cause of the ailment is corrected rather than just fixing the symptom (which most treatments from your traditional doctor / pharmacy will provide). This is why we are passionate about spreading the word about Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is a traditional holistic health care system, older than any other system of medicine which has been practiced in India for more than 5,000 years. Ayurveda otherwise also known as the “medicine of the gods” is derived from its ancient Sanskrit roots - ‘ayur' (life) and ‘ved' (knowledge) – and it offers a rich, comprehensive outlook to a healthy life, especially in this modern age where sickness and diseases are widespread.
Ayurveda, is recognized as an alternative medicine now, represents the science of healthy life and longevity originating from the Vedic traditions of India. Based on the principle of eternal life, this holistic health care system has a vast body of knowledge covering eight branches. Its major premise involves the symbiosis of mind, body and spirit. Any imbalance in this synthesis could result in physical ailments. This ancient Indian medicine seeks to re-establish the harmony between the body and its habitat by creating the optimum health environment.
From India, the art of Ayurveda had spread around in the 6th century BC to Tibet, China, Mongolia, Korea and Sri Lanka, carried over by the Buddhist monks traveling to those lands. Although not much of it survived in its original form, its effects can be seen in the various new age concepts that have originated from there.
Concepts of the body
In Ayurveda, the body is seen as a microcosmic universe in which the five great primordial elements (panchamahabhutas) - ether (akasha), air (vayu), fire (agni), water (jala) and earth (prithvi) - combine to form three humours (doshas), known as wind (vata), choler (pitta) and phlegm (kapha).
Each dosha has its own qualities and functions in relation to the body. The balance between these doshasdetermines individual constitution (prakriti) and predisposition to disease. Constitution is also affected by the strength of a person's 'digestive fire' (agni) and bowel function (kostha).
Seven tissues (dhatus) and their waste products (malas) make up the physical body and a network of channels circulate fluids and essences around the body. Three interdependent universal constituents, the three gunas - purity (sattva), activity (rajas) and solidity (tamas) - also influence health and determine mental qualities. Disease occurs if lifestyle, mental or external factors cause an imbalance in one or more of these components
Ayurveda operates on the precept that various materials and mineral origin have some medicinal value. The medicinal properties of these materials have been documented by the practitioners and have been used for centuries to cure illness and help to achieve good health. Ayurvedic medicaments are made from herbs or mixtures of herbs, either alone or in combination with mineralsand other ingredients. Themetal and minerals are purified by individual processes before being used for medicinal purposes.
Today, Ayurveda is gaining popularity in Western countries, but most Ayurvedic research has been carried out in India. Studies have shown it to be effective for many disorders including digestive, skin and gynaecological problems. Ayurvedic techniques are said to be particularly effective for nasal congestion, sluggish digestion and stress.
Patients are classified by body types, or prakriti, which are determined by proportions of the three doshas. Illnesses and diseases are considered to be a matter of imbalance in the doshas. Treatment is aimed at restoring harmony and balance to the mind-body system.
