Madhup Yadav. Chandigarh. 24th February :Centre for Swami Vivekananda Sutides, P.U. held a one-day workshop on ‘Ayurveda Lifestyle for the Prevention and Healing of Ailments’. The workshop was conducted by Dr. Vinod Verma of Ayurvedic Health Organisation, Noida at the Golden Jubilee Hall, Panjab University. Stressing on the need for prevention rather than expensive cure later, Dr. Verma showed the importance of knowing our basic nature first.
Each human being has unique constitution, which is composed of Vata, Pita and kafa. We need to understand the personality type and then prescribe medicine accordingly. Our diet should also depend on these three personality types. Illness is produced when the balance between Vata, Pita and kafa is disturbed.
When this happens, the body might cleanse itself through natural processes like vomiting or diarrhea. We should not unnecessarily rush to take medicine in such cases. There was a lively interaction with the students throughout the seminar.
