Vaidya is a Sanskrit word meaning “physician.” Specifically, it refers to a practitioner of Ayurvedic healthcare science, an ancient form of healing with roots in India. Traditionally, a senior practitioner was called a vaidyaraja(physician king), while the personal vaidya of Indian royal families was known as raja vaidya (king’s physician). Today, students of traditional Ayurvedic medicine train for up to 12 years before being conferred with the title of vaidya. Ayurveda treats disease on a mental and emotional level, as well as on a gross physical level. A vaidya has studied all three aspects of healing. Illness and health are seen in the context of a person’s overall personality and circumstances, including family life and daily habits. Vaidyas must study not just medicine, but all aspects of life – individual and cosmic.
The vaidya diagnoses imbalances through observation of the face, eyes, skin and through pulse diagnosis, known as nadi vigyan. The pulse is taken with three fingers representing the three doshas (basic energies): vata, pitta and kapha. The vaidya also observes the patient’s personality and asks questions about lifestyle and diet.
Once a diagnosis is made, the vaidya recommends changes in diet, lifestyle and daily routine to correct imbalances. The vaidya may also suggest herbal remedies and other natural healing methods.
I had terrible digestion issues, and was eating wrong foods, such as cravings for chips & sweet food. I was not satisfied as I did have a healthy diet mostly. I don’t drink alcohol and I was exercising but not feeling good or losing weight. I lost around 14k pretty easily after doing the detox and massages with steam. I took the recommendation of diet changes and medicine that Dr Pradeep suggested to help with digestion. My GP wanted to place me on more cholesterol medication since I had high cholesterol readings. Also I had some sort of liver issue. The cholesterol dropped from 7 to 5 within the first detox period. I was very pleased with that. My GP suggested I lose 7kg a year ago. I have lost a dress size with the detox program. I feel much healthier and my liver has returned to normal. I can eat the vegetarian diet I like as I have learned the best type of foods and how to cook them properly balanced with lentils and grains. In the past I have had to have iron infusions because my digestive system was not good. This has returned to normal. Thank you to everyone at Vibrant Ayurveda for all your care. You’re a very professional team.
