Ayurvedic Treatments

Samana (Herbal Remedies)

After detoxification the practitioner may prescribe herbal or mineral remedies to correct imbalances in the doshas. These have the necessary medicinal qualities to stimulate agni and restore balance in the doshas. They are not prescribed to eradicate disease because the disease is just a symptom of dosha imbalance.

Herbal remedies are usually prescribed in liquid form or as dried herbs, although they can also come as powder or tablets. The ingredients are pre-prepared, but the blends are prescribed individually. Each ingredient is classified by the effect it has on lowering or increasing levels of the doshas. Prescriptions are usually made up of groups of herbs, to which you add eight cups of water and boil until the liquid is reduced to one cup. You may have to take the remedy two or three times a day.

Most Ayurvedic practitioners will also advise you on lifestyle, food and exercise. There is no one healthy diet in Ayurveda, just a diet that is suitable for you. It is important to eat to suit your constitution and the practitioner may prepare a special diet sheet for you.

Exercise, such as yoga, is also important for physical and emotional health and the practitioner will advise on the exercise that is best suited to your constitution.
