What is Ayurveda & Why does it Take Long To Work?


Updated:

You’re probably wondering that even after being on the Traya treatment for months, we’re still prescribing you with your regular dose of natural supplements. Well, Ayurveda believes in a natural and internal healing process where the body does take time to heal. Compare it to a tree, had the tree not developed a strong foundation, it could not sustain its life as it grew.    

We’ve come to realize that although you have been taking your herbal mixes day in and out, you don’t exactly know what Ayurveda is and how it fights hair loss. So, let’s first try and understand what it’s all about.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient science that holds the secrets to life and health with holistic (whole-body) healing. It’s not just about taking herbal medicines but also about following strict lifestyle changes to regain internal balance of the mind and body. According to this philosophical science, every individual is made up of elements found in the universe like water or fire. This further combines in the human body to form three forces or energies called - The Doshas (Pitta, Vata & Kapha).

The Pitta dosha is responsible for metabolic processes like digestion and imparting warmth to the body, resulting in the generation of heat and energy. Vata dosha bears the responsibility of bodily movements like absorption of nutrients and excretion. Lastly, the Kapha dosha offers support and stability to the entire body. But, if there is any kind of disruption in this dosha balance, it can cause serious damage to the body.

Why does Ayurveda take so long to show results?

Ayurveda works to cure diseases from the root by focusing on regaining the balance with these bodily forces rightly called doshas. The fact that there are no side effects on being on an Ayurvedic medication makes it a more preferred option than modern medicine. The use of natural and authentic ingredients with no added preservatives makes the entire process 100% safe to use. This is one of the reasons why Ayurveda has such a mass following even though people don’t really understand how it exactly works.

So, how does it actually work on hair?

When it comes to hair health, Ayurveda encourages you to look deeper into your hair, as it can say so much about what’s going on inside your body - bone tissue to be more specific.

As per Ayurveda, there are several essential body tissues namely plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone tissue and reproductive fluids together called Dhatus. (too many words to remember right? I know!) Hair according to Ayurveda is an inferior byproduct of the bone tissue. Ayurvedic treatments for hair work initially by treating plasma, blood, muscle and fat tissues of the body. Once these tissues are healed completely, only then does the treatment focus on hair health. In short, for Ayurveda to reach hair, it has to first pass through a number of road blocks till it finally gets to fixing hair health. 

 

How long does it really take?

Ayurveda is a magic pill if you follow it in the right manner. It is a personal and time consuming experience. If you wish to see improvements in your hair and health, you need to really be patient. The important thing to remember is that no two individuals are the same, which means Ayurvedic treatments that worked for some in about 3 months could take an entire year for the other. It all depends on the severity of the condition. 

As a patient that has chosen Ayurveda as one of their treatments, you will not just be subjected to a herbal supplementation but rather lifestyle interventions as well. The key is to understand that changes take time and being regular or staying true to the regime requires a lot of practice. As for the answer to this question, Ayurveda is time-consuming and the duration depends from individual to individual. 

Few things to remember while on an Ayurvedic Medication

Yes, Ayurvedic medicines do take time but they are simultaneously also working with you and the rest of your body. Here are a few points to remember if you’re already on an ayurvedic treatment or are planning to get on one.

  • Consistency is key:
  • If you want to see results, protocols need to be followed to the T. Ayurvedic medicines will work when they are taken with care. This means that when and how you take these medicines also do play an important part. 

  • Intake of medicine:
  • Ayurvedic medication requires the stomach to be in the right state of mind. This means that in some cases it needs to be consumed on an empty stomach while some after food. Some might even require you to follow a particular diet recommendation.

  • Complete the course: 
  • This is the most crucial part of being on Ayurvedic medication. Many tend to drop out when they don’t get the desired results out of Ayurveda but the important thing to remember is no journey is complete before reaching the desired destination. The results will only be seen if they are taken in the right dosage, at the right time and in the right manner.

     

    Takeaway:

    Although Ayurveda is a slow process, it not only regains energy but also maintains well - being of the mind and body. The trick is to follow the regime and co-operate with the healing process. Be a little patient, get the best out of Ayurvedic medicine and watch your life change.

    I feel much better after taking up the treatment. The treatment does not just include tablets and minoxidil.

    Treatment includes ensuring proper sleep cycle and proper diet. Surely there is notable changes after 9 months of treatment.

    It's all about patience and consistency. Traya helped me to grow my hair back, as well as to live a healthy lifestyle with the customized diet. Before Traya I lost all my hopes. If a person like me can grow my hairs back., I'm 100℅ sure with the help of Traya everyone who is facing hair fall issues can grow back their hair. Trust me it's worth it.
