Prevention is better than cure — it’s an old saying that most of us remember hearing only in school. Although a very good quote, its application in real life is rarely seen. We live fast-paced lives and barely worry about our own health. Eating junk food, finding no time to exercise, making no room for meditation or self-care activities are some of the downsides of a fast-paced lifestyle. It’s a lifestyle that leads to illness, giving rise to the ‘pill life’. There’s a pill for anything and everything. Be it a headache or a fever, there will be an over-the-counter medicine that will be handy. Prolonged use of such medicines leads to dependency and long-term side effects.
Ayurveda is a more natural approach to treatment, and it works in a different way than chemically manufactured medicines do. The latter cure an illness after it occurs, but Ayurveda helps build a healthy immune system. It’s an age-old science with many mentions across ancient scriptures. Ayurvedic medicine covers everything from the tip of your hair to the tip of your toe. In times such as these, when a virus has killed millions across the globe, it’s important that we focus on building up a stronger immune systems.
Prolonged use of Ayurvedic medicine won’t lead to any side effects or dependency. Instead, it will help you live a healthy and sickness-free life. Preventing a disease is better than curing it, and 2020 has been an eye opener for this. Ayurveda helps you prevent disease more effectively than mainstream medicine. This is one of the major reasons why people lived longer and healthier lives in ancient times.
