1. What Is an Ayurveda Specialist?
Ayurveda specialists are alternative medicine specialists who approach illness using a holistic approach. In most western countries, a medical degree is not required to practice Ayurveda, and there are no formal training requirements. However there are a number of programs that teach the practice of Ayurveda. A doctor who wants to practice Ayurveda can choose to complete additional training in Ayurvedic medicine.
Ayurveda, an ancient practice developed in India, is one of the oldest systems of medicine. It works on the principal of maintaining balance between three elements: mind, body, and spirit, called doshas. Ayurvedic treatment works to boost immunity, improve overall health, and enhance the quality of life. Ayurveda specialists treat various conditions and diseases including respiratory disorders such as cough, cold, sinus, sore throat, skin problems, digestive disorders, menstrual problems, fertility issues, arthritis, pain, hypertension, mental disorders, kidney stones, and other problems. They manage conditions that affect all areas of the body and treat people with one or more conditions such as high or low blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and more.
Treatment by Ayurveda specialists includes herbal formulas, dietary regulations, and therapies like oil massage, steam, and meditation to detoxify, rejuvenate, and clean your body.
There are significant differences in Ayurvedic practice and its regulation around the world. However, because of the lack of evidence from rigorous clinical trials to support Ayurveda as an effective treatment for any condition, Ayurveda is not generally accepted by Western medical expert organizations as a legitimate medical practice or specialty.
2. When Should I See an Ayurveda Specialist?
You may contact an ayurvedic specialist online if you opt for alternatives to conventional (allopathic) medicine or if conventional medicine is not working for you. You may seek out an Ayurveda practitioner if you notice symptoms including:
• Cold and cough
• High Blood pressure
• Digestive problems such as food poisoning, diarrhea, constipation
• Mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, stress
• Sleep problems
• Headaches such as migraine
• Breathing or lung-related problems
• Joint pain
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Skin and hair problems
• Menstrual problems
• Uterine fibroids
3. What Kinds of Tests Does an Ayurveda Specialist Perform or Recommend?
An ayurvedic specialist will do a physical examination to evaluate your body type and any imbalances that may exist. This may include palpation and percussion. Based on your symptoms, an Ayurveda specialist may ask you various questions related to your diet, age, body, diseases, history of diseases, family history, mental health, exercise routine, and activities.
