Ayurvedic treatment

Ayurvedic treatment has three main aspects: removal of the cause, purification and palliation of the Three Principles, and rejuvenation.

1. Removal of the Cause

Disease is produced because of the Law of Cause and Effect, which is the Law of Action and Reaction. Any action which you perform is bound to have some reaction on your organism. Unhealthy actions cause a disequilibrium of the Principles, which is their effect, and until these causes are removed such actions will continue to produce their effects. Your physician cannot effect a cure for you. Physicians exist to expedite the healing process, to help make conditions in the organism more favorable for the re-establishment of normal equilibrium. The surest way of doing this is to remove the situation which caused the disequilibrium, because thereafter the disease will no longer be able to progress. For example, if a man has arthritis because of vitiation of vata due to excessively frequent unsatisfying sex, curtailing his lust will ameliorate his condition better than any other therapy.

2. Purification and Palliation of the Three Principles

Once the cause can no longer act on the patient, the devitalized products of the malady must be removed. There are five major methods of purification, collectively called panchakarma: emesis, purgation, enema, bloodletting and nasal medication. Of these enema is specific for vata, purgation for pitta, and emesis for kapha. Enema, because it controls vata, which is the main cause of most diseases, is regarded by some authorities as 50% or even 100% of successful treatment These purificatory procedures are also used to prevent disease. In spring, for example, emesis is indicated so that the kapha which accumulated during the winter is expelled from the body before it has an opportunity to cause disease. Likewise, purgation is used in summer to remove accumulated pitta, and enema in autumn to control vitiated vata. Pancha Karma should usually be performed under expert supervision, for when these techniques are improperly administered they may themselves cause imbalance in the Three Principles and induce disease. Also, because of feebleness, season, or age, some patients are not fit for these purificatory measures.

After purification, or instead of it in those people who cannot withstand it, palliative treatment is indicated. Animal, vegetable and mineral products, both alone and in combination, are used to help balance the Principles. Medicated oils, used internally and externally, are the best palliatives for vata; clarified butter is best for pitta; and honey is best for kapha. As a group the palliative medications, which are usually herbal compounds, are aimed at increasing the power of the digestion. The strengthened digestion then girds up the body to expel the morbidity on its own.

Therapy may be internal or external, and the choice of one or another mode is usually made according to the location of the malady. Massage with medicated oils, which is used both to prepare a patient for purification and as an independent therapy, is one such external treatment. It has been raised to the level of a fine art in the South Indian state of Kerala, and is very useful when the vata Principle resists ordinary treatment because it has been vitiated all throughout the body. In such cases massage therapy is accompanied by internal medication.

Internal treatment has three components: the medication, its vehicle, and the diet. The texts say, "Fasting is the first medicine," and it should especially be employed in acute diseases in which there are many accumulated toxins. Fasting is prohibited in diseases like tuberculosis which are characterized by wasting of the body. A total fast is ordinarily prescribed only for two or three days. Thin rice gruel is given thereafter, followed a few days later by soup of mung beans or meat, and finally by a return to more normal food, in smaller quantity than usual. The diet prescribed is most often one which is antagonistic in Taste and "temperature" to the Principle which is in excess. For example, the diet in a disease caused by excess pitta should be cool, liquid, and bereft of spices and oil. Rice and mung bean soup is an ideal regimen in such a condition. Specific diets are described for most diseases, and many diseases can be cured by changes in diet alone.

"Vehicle" is a concept unique to Ayurveda. Its purpose is threefold: to enhance the effect of the medication; to prevent any possible side-effects; and to promote quick, thorough absorption.

Butter and honey are common vehicles for diseases of vata; for pitta, clarified butter or sweet fruit juice; and for kapha, honey or warm water. The medicine is mixed thoroughly with its vehicle before being taken.

Because herbal medicines are the most commonly used Ayurvedic treatments, some people believe that Ayurveda is purely herbal medicine, which is untrue. Ayurvedic texts describe the activity and uses of hundreds and hundreds of herbs, and provide explicit directions for their collection, preservation, preparation and use. Climate and soil characteristics affect a plant's inherent qualities to such an extent that an herb grown on a rainy plain may exert different effects on an individual from the same species of herb grown on an arid mountainside. Herbs are often potentiated by grinding them repeatedly in a small quantity of their own expressed juice or with the juices of other plants.

Sadly, much irretrievable herbal lore which had been passed down verbally from guru to disciple for centuries has been lost because it was never written down. Even today, gurus who cannot find fit disciples will allow their knowledge to die with them rather than permit it to fall into unworthy hands. Much other plant and mineral lore is so perfectly hidden in obscure passages from the Vedas and other texts that without a key, available only through a knowledgeable guru, their meaning must remain forever locked up.

3. Rejuvenation and Virilization

Ayurveda is said to have eight limbs. Of these internal medicine, surgery, eye-ear-nose-throat, gynecology and obstetrics (which includes pediatrics), and toxicology are the five which have identical parallels in modern medicine. Ayurvedic psychology is part of the wider topic called demonology, the treatment of spirit possession. This is really the province of Tantra, but since Tantra and Ayurveda are identical in origin an differ only in emphasis some information on demonology is also included in Ayurveda.

Ayurveda's last two limbs have no real parallels in today' medical science. Both rejuvenation and virilization are concerned with the nourishment of all the tissues which make up the body This is especially true with the semen (and its female equivalent which is the culmination of the body's nutritive processes and is the origin of the body's aura. Rejuvenation if properly done need only be done once in a lifetime, but usually it needs to be performed after every illness to enhance the system's immunity. Virilization must be done repeatedly as long as semen is being depleted. The substances used in these therapies undergo complex preparations, and strict regulation of diet is necessary for the duration of the therapy.

Internal Flight - Estas Tonne 2016

We had a long story with this film. The first frames for this project were shot in the spring of 2013, already then we thought that we could quickly compile a fully finished version in a month but at the stage of editing it became clear that the film would have to work a long time still. The material was clearly not enough. From that period to the mid of 2016 in all our travels we filmed something for the "Internal Flight" project, it was always with us in our soul, everything that was filmed was considered through the prism of whether we could use it for the film or not. Finally, in the fall of 2016, we were able to sit down and in a couple of weeks finish the final version of the film that you now see in front of you. The project was written in two languages: Russian and English. Today we present to you the English version of the film, which has not yet appeared anywhere and has not been published anywhere, except for participation in festivals. You can see it on our channels on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/214881201 And Youtube: https://youtu.be/qApaVLZmH1A Even at the stage of editing we made a short 3-minutes film, which immediately took a couple of prizes at festivals. The full version of "Internal Flight", over the past 2 months, has won 19 different prizes at festivals around the world and does not intend to stop at this. On the approach in the coming months the results of several more festivals where we hope to take some awards. Well, the most important thing! What is this 29 minutes movie about? It's a reflection on life and about finding yourself in this world. This is all that comes to mind in sleepless nights. Who am I? Why are we in this world? Why is this world created in this way and not otherwise? The text and music were born by the brilliant musician Estas Tonne and we are happy that we have become a part of this Creative Way. We did this project for our own pleasure and now we are downloading our many years of work in the open space of the Internet because we are sure that the film will be of interest to many. Especially for Paganel travelers, the most intelligent, well-read, interested individuals who discover the Universe together with us on travel! Have a pleasant viewing and good mood! Appreciate Life, Love, Travel! With all the best, Team Paganel Studio & Estas Tonne Music

Dying to be me!

Doctors had given Anita Moorjani just hours to live when she arrived at the hospital in a coma on the morning of February 2nd, 2006. Unable to move as a result of the cancer that had ravaged her body for almost four years, Anita entered another dimension, where she experienced great clarity and understanding of her life and purpose here on earth. She was given a choice of whether to return to life or not, and chose to return to life when she realized that “heaven” is a state and not a place. This subsequently resulted in a remarkable and complete recovery of her health. Anita’s riveting talk will inspire you to transform your life by living more authentically, discovering your greatest passions, transcending your deepest fears, and living from a place of pure joy. Her true story will radically alter your current beliefs about yourself, your purpose on earth, your health, your relationships, and your life!

Jim Carrey's Secret of Life - Inspiring Message

You wouldn’t expect Jim Carrey, a well-known comedian and actor, to go out of his way to inspire people. The man has had a long, and successful career. Instead of taking the money and running, so to speak, Carrey is now using his influence to impart passionate words of wisdom to all of us. Carrey has been talking a lot about living full lives, being happy, escaping fear, and living up to our full potential. “Ultimately, we’re not the avatars we create. We’re not the pictures on the film stock. We are the light that shines through it. All else is just smoke and mirrors. Distracting, but not truly compelling.I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.”
