Ayurvedic treatment involves various types of therapies, herbs and ayurvedic medicine, but there’s a lot more to it that people are usually not aware of. Spirituality is an important aspect of Ayurvedic treatment and without it, desired results will be difficult to achieve. The importance of spirituality has been described in Charak Samhita, which is considered as the primary knowledgebase for Ayurveda and Ayurvedic treatment. The Charak Samhita clearly states that the healer has to connect with the patient at the spiritual level in order to achieve the desired treatment. This is why it is important to choose an Ayurveda doctor who can resolve your core spiritual issues rather than focusing solely on therapies and medicines.
Ayurveda goes a lot deeper than modern science can interpret with its existing tools and equipment. As per Vedic scriptures, we all are born with a specific goal in life and it’s not a random event. Even great scientist Albert Einstein espoused a similar belief when he said “God does not play dice with the universe”. As per the Vedas, we are here to realize our divine nature and as long as we are on that path, we would experience good health and happiness. When we feel connected to a greater power, it gives us hope and courage and keeps us in a positive frame of mind.
In many cases, disease and health issues are manifestations of our disconnect with our divine self. We feel that we are alone in this battle of life, which makes us anxious and worried. It makes us move towards negative forces such as greed, jealously, hatred, etc. When we lose faith in our divineself, we lose our purpose in life and our connection with the greater power. Overtime, unfulfilled and repressed desires manifest into disease. Rising cases of cancer are perfect example of how disease can ravage our bodies when we lose our spiritual connection. There have been many cases where spiritual healers have reversed cancer by helping cancer patients realize theirdivine purpose in life.
The right Ayurveda doctor will focus on identifying the root cause of your illness, which can be stress, career or financial problems, relationship problems, etc. The Ayurveda doctor will then guide you to the right path, which is the path of spirituality and the endeavor to discover our divine self. With spiritual development, you will achieve a calm and positive frame of mind and imbalances in your body will be eliminated. It will also help you realize your true purpose in life. With spiritual awakening, you will respond faster to ayurvedic treatment and medicines that the doctor may have prescribed.
