    AYUVEDA SYSTEM OF MEDICINE

    Ayurveda is a word from Sanskrit - the ancient language of India - that translates as knowledge or science of life. Ayurveda originated some 5,000 years ago in the oral teachings of ancient rishis (pronounced ree-shees), or spiritual masters, who believed that all living things were based on underlying energies. They developed Ayurveda as a method for balancing these energies and thus promoting optimal health and longevity. Ayurvedic theory influenced Greek and Chinese medicine and evolved into a sophisticated system for preventing and treating disease.

    The term Ayurveda literally means "the science of life". This ancient system of medicine, developed in India over a period of 5000 years, encompasses both Preventive & Prescriptive aspects. Ayurveda offers a great deal of excellent practical advice for the common man on every aspect of life and living. What is unique to Ayurveda is Ayurvedic practitioners teach patients to understand their unique bodily constitutions and show them how to use diet, massage, herbs, and lifestyle adjustments to harmonize body, mind, and spirit. Compared to other systems of medicine, this natural approach to health care caught appreciation of the world as safe and scientific.

    Today, an estimated 300,000 ayurvedic physicians practice in India, often in close conjunction with health care providers trained in Western, conventional medicine or in homeopathy. In recent years a more science-savvy take on Ayurveda has spread to distant parts of the world including the United States, where it has begun to flourish alongside other holistic, patient-oriented, natural, non-invasive medical systems such as traditional Chinese medicine.





    chandrika glycerine soap


    AYURVEDIC SOAPS

    One of the world’s oldest medical systems, Ayurveda originated thousands of years ago in India. The Sanskrit term Ayurveda comes from the word "ayur," meaning "life," and "veda," meaning "knowledge." Over the centuries, Ayurveda became the science of life, providing a foundation for a healthy mind, body, and spirit. Ayurvedic medicine emphasizes natural cures and treatments to restore a person's energy and promote healing. The same principles apply to Ayurvedic products such as Ayurvedic soap.

    IDENTIFICATION

    Various commercial manufacturers produce Ayurvedic soap under a wide range of brand names including Anjolie Ayurveda, Ayurveda Pura, Chandrika and Medimix. Though available in liquid form, most Ayurvedic soap comes in traditional bar shapes, with the soap's exact ingredients determining its color, scent and texture.

    FEATURES

    In accordance with the tenets of Ayurveda, Ayurvedic soap contains only natural ingredients, placing an emphasis on plant products and avoiding man-made ingredients or animal byproducts. One kind of Ayurvedic soap would feature a base of vegetable oils, glycerine and then an assortment of healing oils. The soap never uses harsh chemicals. Coconut oils, ginger extract, orange oil and sandalwood oil are a few of the more common ingredients found in Ayurvedic soap.

    FUNCTION

    Used in the same fashion as traditional soap, Ayurvedic soap cleans and refreshes the skin, with its specific ingredients determining its exact effects. According to Natural Therapy Web, an alternative healing community, Ayurvedic soap uses Coconut oil to nourish the skin, Ginger extract to relax and firm the skin, Lime Seed oil for deep cleaning, and Orange oil to help reduce pimples, blackheads and other blemishes. Benefits Traditional soaps can often strip the natural oils that serve to moisturize and protect the skin, causing irritation. Because they do not include harsh chemicals, Ayurvedic soaps are much gentler on the skin, helping prevent rashes and blemishes while still being strong enough to cleanse. Manufacturers may also tailor certain Ayurvedic soaps to possess anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties or to achieve specific sensations such as increased relaxation or improved circulation for a sense of warming.

    CONSIDERATIONS

    Because it only uses natural ingredients and avoids cheap chemicals, Ayurvedic soap may be more expensive than traditional soaps. Read the product label to ensure the soap follows the true spirit of Ayurveda and does not include any synthetic ingredients or employ animal testing.

His belief and persistence paid of when people who used it realised its value and goodness and came back asking for more. Once people discovered Chandrika, there was no turning back for him. Sri. Kesavan Vaidyar went on to export Chandrika Soap to almost all the western, Middle Eastern and far eastern countries. Using the income from the business Sri.
