Systems Ayurveda

Updated: Jun 14, 2022

This ‘Systems Ayurveda’ graphic notation describes schema of Ayurveda knowledge base. Comprehensive view of concepts and logic is possible through this approach. In addition to logical, sequential linear flow, Ayurveda also adopts multi-dimensional, one-to-many and many-to-many cause effect relations. 'Systems Ayurveda’ will illustrate potential and practical applications of logic and vast knowledge base of Ayurveda. ‘Systems Ayurveda’ is an entity relationship notation based on Systems Biology Graphical Notation (SBGN) concept .

This first poster broadly describes logical flow, forward loops, backward loops, entity relations and their applications in health and diseases. The foundations and logic of Ayurveda is mainly based on Sankhya and Vaisheshika philosophy. According to this, every matter (Padartha) is composed of five primordial elements (Mahabhutas). The manifested parts of matter are microcosm (the living) and macrocosm (universe); both could be assessed by similar logic and method.

Main aim of Ayurveda is to promote health, longevity and alleviate diseases. This is achieved through homeostasis of Dosha, Dhatu, Mala and Agni. Appropriate conduct including proper lifestyle and diet leads to health. Effects of Dravya as diet, drug also as causative factor depends on properties and activities relative to the context. The processing (Samskara) enables augmentation of health promoting properties and reducing toxicity of medicines. The disease process initiates from causative factors (Hetu) and any disturbance in organs (e.g. Dhatu). The Samprapti is process through several steps (Sadkriyakala) and manifests into disease.

The holistic approach of Ayurveda management aims at establishing health through multifarious treatment modalities including counselling, avoiding causes, Pancakarma, medicines, diet and surgical procedures. Every aspect of ‘Systems Ayurveda’ logic is linked to other components and has specific role in maintenance of health and/or treating diseases.

The ‘whole to part’ relation of Ayurveda philosophy is important for better understanding of comprehensive account. The immense data consisting of near 300 variables describing logical flow and concepts of Ayurveda have been presented using SBGN approach for processes, entity relationships and activity flow.

Vedavidhya Consultants in our Brahmi Ayurveda Clinic utilize the Systems Ayurveda and also adopt Rishi Parampara based unique theory practice from Vedas that is not yet documented in present Ayurveda Samhitas like Bṛhat-Trayī or Laghu-Trayī.
