Importance of vata

Vata - listed as the first among doshas - is said to be the leader of them. Without it, everything is sedentary and dead. It is movement and sensation which is the basic expression of life! There is no balance or imbalance possible without the involvement of vata. In the chapter of Diagnosis of Vata diseases, Vagbhata (author of Ashtanga Hridaya) says – “Vata is the creator of universe, and vata itself transforms into the universe, it sustains the universe and finally destroys it! It seems to be the merging point of trinity into unity!!” 

Pathology

Being so vital, the imbalance of it results in severe conditions – both physically and mentally. Neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, parkinsons disease, paralysis are few examples of it. Degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis, spondylosis, etc., also fall under Vata Vyadhi. Many convulsive diseases like few kinds of epilepsies also come under this group. We see a wide range of diseases from gastric irritation to Alzheimers being listed here. It’s the same vata in different intensities, in different places, expressing different symptoms.

Treatments

It is interesting that the treatment of Vata became a part of wellness and wellbeing treatment in Kerala in the history, and nowadays all over the world. “Sukha S’eelata” – indulgence in soothing things – is explained as the basic line of treatment of vata. Oil massages, oil baths, poultices, shirodhara, sweet sour & salty food, fresh wine, meat soup of fatty animals …. thus goes the treatment principle. But oil Vasti & cleansing Vastis are the strongest means of managing these conditions: these are serious interventions which could be challenging as well! In the internship we will give ample attention to all these treatments and interventions, their possibilities and their challenges.

Dr. Vijith and Dr. Vidya are great teachers of authentic ayurveda – and it is our personal experience that when you study with such teachers – your understanding speeds up at least 3-fold. Also – and especially so – on a deeper level! They teach straight from the Classic Texts, but in a way which is super-accessible as well as modern in its applications. With depth and humor, and supported by a team of very experienced ayurveda experts.
