Ayurveda, the traditional medical school in India, comes from a time before> 4000 years. It is based on the theory that disease from an imbalance of the life force (prana) is produced in the body. It aims to restore the balance in the body. Determining for the balance of the Prana is the balance of the three bodies qualities (doshas) – Vata, Kapha and Pitta. For most people, a dosha dominates, and the specific balance of all three doshas is individually unique. Evidence for Ayurveda There have been carried out only a few well-designed studies of Ayurveda practices. The use of Ayurvedic herbal supplements for the relief of symptoms in patients with RA was examined. A systematic Überprüfung1 from 2005 has identified randomized controlled trials that have examined the effectiveness of Ayurvedic herbal combinations for the treatment of RA. Few high-quality studies were identified, but the existing evidence does not demonstrate the efficacy of the treatment of RA. The use of Ayurvedic practices for the treatment of diabetes is currently under investigation. 1Park J, Ernst E: Ayurvedic medicine for rheumatoid arthritis: a systematic review.
