Ranjana Radhakrishnan, a medical student, was taken to a kerala ayurvedic resort a few months back for a treatment for her chronic stomach ache. ``I have been a student of the modern medicine and what we learn from our books is that our body is made up of water, tissues, blood vessels etc. But it was from an Ayurvedic practitioner there I first heard that our body is made up of three humours – vata, pita and kapha,’’ she says.
Ranjana agrees that this factor amused her first and she was a bit skeptical about the curing capacity of the Ayurveda. But two weeks into the treatment, she felt much at ease with her body and could say adieu to the chronic stomach ache.
The first step involved in any Ayurvedic treatment was determining the body type (prakriti) of the patient – that is to find out the predominant humour in the body. Next is identification of the vikriti –detecting the responsible humour for the disease. The Ayurvedic practitioner also analyses the lifestyle, diet, genetic predisposition of the patient before prescribing the treatment. S/he also looks into the emotional factors and the psychological factors like stress, anxiety etc of the patient before finalising the therapy.

I am personally not very familiar with this type of treatment. My mom had breast cancer and we were willng to try ANYTHING to heal her. I wish I had heard of it, because we would have probably tried it!
