Nature Heals not Physician :
The human body has the inherent ability to restore health. Healing is an ordered process which includes the generation of symptoms that are part of mechanism of the biological system attempting to heal it self . The physician's role is to facilitate & augment this process with therapeutic actions complementary to, and synergistic with this healing process. Uropathy strengthens this Natural Healing Power by purification and detoxification of whole person.
Whole person treatment :
Health & disease result from a complex interaction of physical, mental, emotional, genetic, social, environmental, spiritual & other factors. The harmonious functioning of all aspects of the individual is the essential to health. In body all the systems are intimately interlinked, interdependent & dynamically balanced. Hence Disease or imbalance in one part directly affects the ones other parts of that whole. There is never a single cause for disease. All the pieces must be integrated in order to create a whole picture of an individual and his/her illness. Therapy can then be directed for underlying as well as immediate causative factor, thus treating the whole person.
The World health Organisation [WHO]in drafting its constitution sought a definition for health, which conveys the need of every person enjoy the ability to take advantage of their potential for vigour & happiness. Health according to the W.H.O is a state of complete physical, mental & social well being and not merely the absence of disease are infirmity.
Still more closer to Holistic attitude Dr. Henry Lindlahr has defined Health as normal & harmonious vibration of the elements and forces composing the human entity on the physical, mental and moral planes of being in conformity with constructive principles of Nature applied to individual life.
Ideal characteristics of Healthy person according to text of anxiety Indian
Healthy person is and who follows regulated life regulated diet & conduct, one who would be able to face the dual situations with balance, one who could detatch the himself from the worldly things, one who is kind & donates a portion of his income for the weaker sections, one who consider others equal to him ( Universal brotherhood) and one serves the suffering humanity.
Identify & Treat the Cause :
Deasease does not occor without cause. The main cause for most of the illnesses is Violations of Nature's Laws.
According to Ayurveda, Rishis say that a man betrays his own conscience.(Nature), overindulges in physical pleasures like eating and gets indigetion which is the root cause of all diseases.
Bapu (Mahatma Gandhi) said," Due to ignorance , Carelessness, Violating eating and leaving limits, disease is caused . "Symptoms are not the cause of illness. Symptoms are signals that the body is out of balance, and are the expressions of the body attempt to heal itself. Causes originate on many levels, but are often found in patients life style, diet, habits or emotional state. When only symptoms are treated the underlying cause remains and the patients may develop a more serious chronic condition. All treatments in Uropathy are directed to root cause and are not for just symptomatic relief.
The basic cause for all disease is the violation of laws of Nature at physical, mental & social levels. It could be in thinking, living, breathing, eating or excreting. This is the main cause for all illness although disease may manifest in various form, in different degrees of serverity at different levels. Violation of law's of Nature may include.
·ABNORMAL COMPETITION OF BLOOD & LYMPH
·DEPOSITION OR STASIS OF MORBID MATERIAL & POSITIONS.
· Stress, tensions and mental agitation.
· Running behind wordly pleasures.
· Eating unwholesome food - inadequate or excessive intake of nutritive food.
· Living in unhealthy, unhygienic dwellings.
· Lack of exercise, inadequate or too much reat and sleep
· Doing things untimely hours.
· Superssion of Natural calls and instincts.
· Association with wicked and negative thoughts.
· Much of sophistication and fascion. Use of various stimulants & drugs.
· Progressively spoiling surplus surrounding and bad environmental sanitation.
Those who always live according to the laws of Dharma (nature of ones own self) who respect and regard God (true consciences), who always take Satwik food, conquer Indrias, who possess noble character, the life of such person will be prolonged liberally - says shastra.
A healing crisis is an acute reaction, resulting from the ascendancy of Natures healing forces over disease condition. Its tendency is towards recovery and in reality in the result of cleansing and healing efforts of Nature.
· All microbial agents are secondary cause for disease, primary cause is deposition or stasis of morbid substances. This disposition of morbid & toxic substances occur only due to violation of Natural laws & heriditory tendencies.
Pathology can only occur where there is morbid stasis & deposition, leading to lowered resistance. No infection can occur, unless there is already fertile soil, in which the germs can thrive.
These morbid toxic substances could be endogenous or exogenous unutilized, unaccimilated products or end products of metabolism or any foreign or excessive substances in the body.
Modern science recognizes these morebid substances as 'Free radicals' These are solitary radicals attach themselves to stable biological molecules and cause breakdown of cell membranes. In Ayurveda these are considered as excessive dosa.
The main abode of these morbid toxic substances is alimentary tract but deposition, stasis occurs all over the body. It inhabits and hinders various physiological & biochemical process in the body leading to diminished immune resistance, abnormal composition of blood & lymph.
In Panch Karma it is said, that effect off vatta cause spreading of morbid toxins all over the body. The modalities of Uropathy like Urine fast & Urine massage first reduce the vatta and brings all accumulated toxins in its abode for elimination Shivambu Chikitsa is an eliminative line of therapy helps to attain Samyak Shudhi.
Shivambu And Life Style :
The complex biochemical processes and physiological functions in the body are directly or indirectly influenced by certain internal and external factors of the organism. Shivambu is the product of such widely exposed, but still dynamically balanced human organism. Hence contents and ingredients of shivambu are dependent on internal and external environment of the organism. And it is because of this reason in Modern Medicine Urine is tested and chemically analyzed for diagnostic investigations, in Chinaise Medicine and panic Healing the physical properties of Urine are checked to understand the condition of vitality(Qi or Prana) of the organism.
In simple words the contents of Shivambu are depends on our eating, drinking, excreting, living, thinking habits, attitude s and surrounding environment(weather conditions and seasons ).
Human organism is dynamic and in continuously changing. Because of this, the taste of morning Urine is different from afternoon or evening the contents of the Urine is different from contents found is diseased condition.
Every human being is unique in his or her physical and mental constitution, hence the urine. That is, the ingredients of urine vary from person to person. Thus the contents of Urine are also dynamic.
Therefore if Urine has to be used and produced as therapentic agent or tool from pharmaceutical factory of human organism, Yogic way of living, thinking and Satwick food
described in ancient texts is essential, mandatory.
