Ayurvedic doctors regard physical and mental existence together with personality as a unit, each element having
the capacity to influence the others. One of the fundamental aspects of ayurvedic medicine is to take this into
account during diagnosis and therapy.
Nevertheless, it is not an 'alternative medicine' - it doesn't aim to replace the conventional medicine. On the
contrary, it is based on the concept of comprehensive medicine making use of everything that has revealed to be
of benefit to the human being. Moreover it supplements 'material science' with aspects of spiritual science in order
to assess the individual as a whole entity. For instance, this may include physical body features, personal history,
behaviour, emotions, habits and many other aspects besides - all of which determine an individual's personality.
Ayurvedic medicine therefore attempts to include the individuality of the patient, as well as accepted features of an
illness, in the treatments process. For just as each person is unique, so is each treatment - even through some
may appear to apply to many people.
Even if, owing to their characteristic features, the same disease pictures constantly recur, each illness manifests
itself differently in each patient - a manifestation inseperable from the
uniqueness of the individual. Ayurvedic medicine therefore aims to form
a picture of the physical, psychological, and personal circumstances that
have paved the way for an illness to take hold. Taking such factors into
consideration during diagnosis and therapy and re-applying the process
to every new patient, guided by scientific findings, medical experience,
personal discernment, and intuition, is fundamental to ayurvedic medicine.
Any medicine that ignores the person as an individual cannot claim to be true
