The principle of Chyawanprash

Ayurveda looks beyond individual symptoms into the total human system…the sharir (body), manas (mind) and atma (soul). Ayurveda recognizes three basic forces or elements that control that control all physical and mental processed. Vita controls moments within the body. Pitta controls digestion and all biochemical processes. Kapha controls the tissue fluids, cell growth and firmness of the body. Imbalance of three forces causes illness. Ayurveda prevents imbalance or restores balance. 

Ayurveda sees the totality of a human being as a dynamic balance of myriad related, often contradictory, elements in motion. Looks for clues not only in the body, but in behaviour patterns, moods and thoughts. It seeks to allay symptoms by correcting the total balance, not attacking individual symptoms. 

History of Chyawanprash

According to the Mahabharata the classic hindu epic, Chyawan was one of the eight sons of Bhrigu and Puloma. He was physically weak due to his premature birth. Maharashi Chyawan married King Sharyati’s daughter Sukanya at an old age. Sometime after the marriage, the twins Ashvini Kumaras came to the hermitage of saint Chyawan and offered him a medicine after the use of which the saint regained his youth. That drug was named as ‘Chyawanprash’ after the name of Chyawan.
