Ayurveda, a Comprehensive Traditional Hindu System of Medicine

Ayurveda a Comprehensive Traditional Hindu System of MedicineHealth is essential to human life. On that account, people who cannot afford the expensive modern medicines tend to use this kind of herbal medicine and Ayurveda. Even, the enthusiast of this healing system shows a growing number. Aside from being eco-friendly, it does not have any side effects.

Director of the Ayurvedic School of the Hindu University of Indonesia (UNHI), IB Putra Suta, said the Ayurvedic healing system provided a thorough treatment. It did not only cover the physical treatment, but also mental and spiritual improvement. “It is different from modern medicine which only treats the physical or mental aspect partially,” he said.

When being met in the local campus, IB Putra explained that in responding to such condition the UNHI then established the Ayurvedic School. The program was also an attempt to help preserve the ancestral heritage almost being abandoned. “The Ayurvedic healing system is based on the indigenous wisdom with the core of usadha science that should be preserved,” he said.

According to him, the word Ayurveda was composed of two words namely Ayur meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge. Therefore, Ayurveda was a science of healthy living and longevity. “Having a long life but unhealthy is not good. On the contrary, having a healthy body but having no long life is not good, either,” he exemplified.

He explained the program was established in 2003 named the Usadha Study Program. Having been completed in 2008, it was then renamed into the Faculty of Ayurvedic Health. It had 13 lecturers consisting of practitioners, doctors and people who were experts in the healing practice. Meanwhile, the number of students had now reached 100 people. “The enthusiast of this faculty continues to increase,” he said.

Despite being an educational institution, the Faculty of Ayurvedic Health also served patients. Therefore, other than having a classroom it was also equipped with clinical laboratory. “This faculty also collaborates with hospital as a place to perform internship or field work and observation,” he concluded.
