Adolescence is the age of major physical, intellectual, and emotional growth. Youth – the critical phase of life, is a period of major physical, physiological, psychological, and behavioral changes with changing patterns of social interactions and relationships. Youth is the window of opportunity that sets the stage for a healthy and productive adulthood and to reduce the likelihood of health problems in later years. To make this transition smoother, Ayurveda offers practical advice on how to take advantage of the characteristics of this age and create healthier and happier teens.
Most young people are presumed to be healthy but, as per WHO, an estimated 2.6 million young people die each year and a much greater number of young people suffer from illnesses ‘behaviours’ which hinder their ability to grow and develop to their full potential. Nearly two-thirds of premature deaths and one-third of the total disease burden in adults are associated with conditions or behaviours initiated in their youth (e.g. tobacco use, physical inactivity, high-risk sexual behaviours, injury and violence and others).
“Svasthasya svasthya rakshanam”: protection, preservation, and promotion of the health of the healthy. No other medical science today speaks of maintaining the health of healthy people as one of its objectives. Also, “Vikara prashamanam”: pacifying the disease of the diseased. Of Ayurveda’s significance, Charakacharya states:
“The wise regard the science of life as the supreme science, because it teaches mankind what constitutes good in both worlds, here and hereafter. That is the importance of Ayurveda.”
Ayurveda has different treatments for different diseases, which are well established and consistent over the period. Multiple therapeutic approaches exist in Ayurvedic medical science such as Shodhana, Nidan Parivarjan, Shamana, Rasayana, Pathya vyavastha, and Satvajaya.
Shodhana therapy is a type of purification treatment where toxic factors are eliminated from foods by the application of various unit operations. Peeling, polishing, sorting, cleaning, cleaning, sifting, straining, de-husking, washing, and distillation are different techniques used in Shodhana therapy. According to Shodhana therapy, the unit operations are designated with different nomenclatures like frying process of Hingu(Asafoetida) with ghee to eliminate moisture is called Bharjana. Cleansing and sifting of cumin and mustard seeds are known as Virechana. Removal of ginger (Zingiber officinale) outer skin through washing is known as Svedana. This therapy not only removes the impurities but also improves the nutritional value of foods.
