People fall sick not only because of bacteria, infection, wrong food or improper lifestyle, but also due to three main causes, namely Asaatmya indriyaartha samyogam (Incompatible correlation of the senses with their objects), Prajnaaparaadham (wrong use of will), and Kaalam (effect of time). While DNA gives the body one set of instructions, the life experiences at every moment are giving the governing principles perhaps another message. Since these three governing principles are nothing but energy themselves, they can be influenced i.e. increased or decreased by like or opposite energies. When a stimulus and a system have the same energy the stimulus promotes more of its value in the system.
Ayurveda, being the oldest and complete health science explains holistic health view and how a patient should be treated. Ayurveda does not confine itself to treat a disease but goes much beyond. It tells how one has to lead his life, correlate body and mind, and take precautionary measures to prevent diseases. It is ancient wisdom best suited for modern man. Having passed the test of experience it remains essentially the same now as at its inception, although numerous commentators over the centuries have added insight with their analyses. The philosophy of Ayurveda teaches a series of conceptual systems characterized by balance and disorder, health and disease. Disease/health results from the interconnectedness between the self, personality, and everything that occurs in the mental, emotional, and spiritual being. To be healthy, harmony must exist between the purpose for healing, thoughts, feelings and physical action.
Ayurveda is a careful integration of six important Indian philosophical systems, many physical/behavioral sciences, and the medical arts. Health is defined as an experience of bliss/happiness in the soul, mind, and senses and balance of the body’s three governing principles, seven tissues, three wastes, digestion, and other processes such as immune functioning. Health is not the absence of symptoms. Even World Health Organization (WHO) defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Ayurvedic community have also understood the necessity of scientific methods for standardization of manufacturing process and certification needs for wider acceptance of Ayurveda as science worldwide.
