Rejuvenative Medicine

The term rejuvenation implies a restoration of what had become faded or disintegrated, a return to the original state, a renewing by cleansing, repairing, rebuilding or a restoration of youthful vigour, vitality and appearance of the individual.  In Ayurveda rejuvenative medicine intends to improve the quality of life for patients as well as normal people. Since time immemorial traditional approaches to medicine and healthcare have been highly successful in developing treatments for many acute and chronic disease and disorders. With these discoveries also came scientific advances in understanding the underlying mechanisms of disease, leading to innovative therapies that focus on addressing the causes of the disease instead of just treating symptoms.
There has been a wide acceptance to rejuvenation  therapies worldwide with the intention of preventing disease process to great extent. Anyhow rejuvenation requires a pre detoxification of body to eliminate the toxins accumulated over the years in the system. The systems cannot be rejuvenated properly unless it is detoxified properly
Every day you are exposed to toxins that find their way into the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat. Your body works hard, trying to process and eliminate these dangerous substances by transforming and then excreting them through your lungs, liver, kidneys, skin, and bowels. Unfortunately, many times these toxins do not exit your body effectively. They circulate back into your bloodstream and body tissues and often become stored in our fat tissues and cause hazardous diseases. Detoxification otherwise body cleansing aims to rid the body toxins that allegedly exert undesirable effects on human health. Ayurveda reiterates the prime importance of Panchakarma (cleansing therapies) which focuses on solely the cleansing and detoxification of the systems .In fact these procedures largely help the body’s own detoxification mechanisms evolved in itself by birth and the current life styles and environment do a great deterioration in the normal human biological processes in this regard.
The future of medicine lies in understanding how the body creates itself out of a single cell and the mechanisms by which it renews itself throughout life. In view of this new trend, recently quiet a number of research institutes have been established worldwide to work on the cell biology and genomics to study the mechanism of detoxification and rejuvenation in detail. Ayurveda which has been in the field of medicine in India since 3000 yrs, has already found the ways and means to the above problem in an effective manner.
Ayurveda elaborates the sodhana therapy (purification /detoxification) in the name of  Panchakarma ie five  procedures  viz  1)vamana(therapeutic emesis),2)virechana(therapeuticpurgation), 3)vasthi(medicated enemas) 4)nasya(nasal errhines), 5)raktha moksha(blood letting)..These procedures help eliminate the impurities (vitiated doshas) and accelerates the acceptability to further rejuvenation procedures in Ayurveda.
Yoga also plays a vital role in detoxification and rejuvenation which has been originated in India and later got much acceptability worldwide. In fact this creates a mental purification which is badly in need in the current health scenario. Hence Ayurveda and yoga create a synergy of psycho-somatic purity of the systems to great extent..
Due to the current life style our mind also expose to much more negative thoughts and feelings which in turn cause various health problems in psychic levels also .The shad kriyas in yoga (sudhikriyas-purification)not only corrects the mental plane but it also purifies the various systems of human systems .More over the Hata yoga emphasises 8 steps to achieve the ecstasy and salvation in life according to Yoga .
In short at Namami we have intelligently combined the Ayurveda and yoga for detoxification and rejuvenation with its full spirits to achieve the goal of perfect health.
