menopause and Therapeutic principles of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is considered as one of the oldest healing systems of the world still being practiced. The basic principle of therapeutics in Ayurveda is preventive as well as therapeutic. Preventive measures are significantly preferred.

Two approaches as described in Ayurvedic text “Charak Samhita” are –

  1. Swasthyashya Swasthya Rakshanam (To protect the health of the healthy)- The preventative approach. This is practiced through daily routine, seasonal routine, lifestyle, food, diet and eating habits, yoga, mantra, meditation etc.
  2. Aturasya Vikara Prashamanancha (To relieve the maladies of mind and body)- The therapeutic approach of Ayurveda is achieved through various Ayurvedic approaches. They include but are not limited to herbs and herbal formulations, prepared as powder, paste, teas, hand rolled tablets, and various detoxification modalities such as Panchakarma.

For good health, Ayurveda emphasizes on maintaining the homeostasis of the body. (Dhatu Samyama Kriya cha ukta, tantrasyasa prayojanam).
Various measures described in different Ayurvedic texts, that help maintain the homeostasis through changing seasons, age and against various factors that influence mind and body are-

  1. Tryopastambha (Three pillars of health- diet, sleep, and healthy sex)
  2. Ahara Vidhi Visheshayatanam (Food and eating habits)
  3. Rasayana (Rejuvenating herbs and therapies)
  4. Vajikarana (Aphrodisiac herbs)
  5. Swasthavritta (Code of conducts- daily and seasonal routines)
  6. Sadvritta (Social and personal ethics)
  7. Achara Rasayana (Ethics having Rasayana effects)

These ancient and time tested tools of Ayurveda help maintain the homeostasis of the body. These are the tools that help women transition through the turbulent period of menopause uneventfully. They help ease the pain as well as improve the quality of life.
An intelligent selection of various variables suited to an individual’s unique mind- body type and presenting symptoms is the best Ayurvedic approach.
