How we respond to alternative medicine just shows how we as a culture have gotten used to the fix-it-fast mindset of mainstream medicine which doles out a pill for relief of the sympton, thus we think we are cured. This method releases us from personal responsibility to our bodies. I only realised this because i had an Ayurvedic analysis and when I implemented the advice and so no quick changes I gave up. I've learned it's a whole-person/lifestyle approach which requires a lot of patience and can be affective given the chance.

That's been my experience so I thought I'd share.

Is it me or is there an ad for rvita here?

Also interesting is that I gave a Web Site to visit and the "evaluator" has chosen to remove it, and yet has allowed for the "millers" to submit theirs... I suspect this statement will also be edited or chosen not to post.

I must ask... who is writing these articles and for what purpose. I am a PR graduate and hate the use of PR for "free" advertising. The Western goal of the all consuming dollar is frustrating, but I would like to simply give some honest - nonfinancially motivated perspective. For all you who care (which may be no one) Many bloggers are really corporate advertising agents who spend all day writing and posting online so that the unknowing can get hooked into a fear campaign. Consider your source and its motivation. Consider the information being presented... and if it can be validated by fact or if it simply subjective claim (?). if you would like ot know something legitimate about Ayurveda visit the Ayurvedic Institute online and you can find links and "free" information. I am NOT associated to the institute in any way, just simply a yoga practitioner who has completed many university credits in the biology sciences as well as dietary sciences. If you want to understand your body, Ayurveda is the right direction. Good luck to all!!! :-)

If anyone cares... the comments from the "millers" look like a bold advertizement for a new Web Site and I guess it bothers me and may bother others. One cannot look at Ayurveda as any form of alternative medicine. This is such a challenge in the West. One must accept personal accountability to ones own body and actions. Ayurveda is lifestyle habits that help to prevent "ama" and to elimitae the affects of "ama". If you try to use Ayurveda as a medicine, than you have lost an understanding of what Dosha is. This article is accurate and yet inaccurate... it is miss leading and confuses while giving the illusion of clarity.

When going the alternative medicine route one is often left to research and experiment to find the right products and resources. Here is a new site that is beginning to gather all the resources in one place. You can research conditions for various therapeutic modes, including Ayurvedic medicine, and get information about the effectiveness of therapies and remedies. The site is also a launching point for researching integrated alternative medicine therapies on the web. Go to http://www.rvita.com .

T.S.SUNDARAM. FROM INDIA.

The ancient scince of Indian Medicine namely Ayurveda offers practical solutions to our health problems. According to it, the five elements of Nature such as Ether or space, Fire, Air, Water and Earth are also the basic components of our body. The more we attune ourselves to the laws of Nature, the more healthy we be in body, mind and soul.
