No germ- theory in Ayurveda

Ayureda is based on the right balance of " space, water, air, fire and earth" in the human body. To the best of my knowledge there is no germ- theory in ayurveda as well in Unani system of medicine. Yoga is physical exercise. more

Mr Lal your post has really stimulated our thoughts. Comming tio think of the Treditional methods, it advises and prescribes for Good Health without diseases. Diseases are all atributed to IMPROPER LIFE STYLE. That is NOT OBSERVING, * Appropriate diet, * Regular exercise, * Rest & Recreation, * Sleep, * Meditation. When one observes and follows there will not be ny diseases as all body parts will be taken care of. We are mostly afflicted with Cardio vascular, diabetic, Kidney, joint, Nervous Diseases. May be the Environment was clean Centuries back and Germs, Bacteria, Virus were not much, people had good immunity due to good diet other practices. more

Bondada ji, I am unable to see/open the post you are referring to ..! more  
Vijay ji, you have two options to reach to the post. 1) Link (which I can give again, and 2) My post is titled "Does any of the AYUSH systems depend on Germ Theory?", and this is available in this circle, just scroll down for posts below and you will see it.

I will also be writing more posts challenging the Germ Theory in the coming days. more  
This seems to be true when we read literature on Ayurveda. At the same time, we cannot ignore surgery practiced by eminent saint physicians like Charaka, Sushruta, and others - they boiled their instruments, used herbs that would reduce inflammation and destroy infection besides increasing bodily immunity (? the balance between the mentioned 5 tatvas), and such examples. The current Jain Gurus and many disciples also cover(ed) their mouths, claiming that they would avoid killing unseen "germs". Therefore, yes, there is little mentioned in literature, so far as I have come across as a practicing Allopathy Army doctor, and with long exposure to working in large medical laboratories, but to say there was no germ theory at all may not be totally acceptable. Perhaps some of us could explore more on this, Bansi Lal ji, and enlighten readers of our views. more  
Bansilalji, the theory of sukshma kitanu is very much present in ayurveda. Pls. follow the link to hear my guruji on ashtang ayurveda. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=guruji+mehulbhai+acharya more
