Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. It is an integral part of the life of an Indian and there are tens of thousands of Ayurvedic healers who provide routine holistic advice and recommendations.  Dr. Navneet Sharda integrates the art and science of ayurveda with the most modern parts of western science to create a synergistic effect, thus enhancing the effectiveness of both therapies.  Dr. Sharda recognizes that many western medicines are merely highly extracted herbs that have been used by humans for tens if not hundreds of thousands of years.  Many Ayurvedic practices predate written records and were handed down by word of mouth. Ayurveda in cancer treatment bookBeat cancer with ayurvedaThree ancient books (known as the Great Trilogy) were written in Sanskrit more than 2,000 years ago (estimates at 5,000 years ago are common) and are considered the main texts on Ayurvedic medicine—Caraka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, and Astanga Hridaya.  Tibetan medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine have their roots in Ayurveda. The action of herbs and spices on the body are elucidated in Ayurveda.  Detoxification and periodic cleansing of the body and mind are essential teachings of Ayurveda.  Early Greek medicine also embraced many concepts originally described in the classical ayurvedic medical texts that were written thousands of years ago.  These ancient Ayurveda texts also taught surgical techniques, including rhinoplasty, kidney stone extractions, sutures, and the extraction of foreign objects.  Yoga was enumerated in the ancient texts of Ayurveda and continues to be popular today.  Western thought has recently accepted Ayurveda and it is becoming increasingly accepted.

The guiding principles of Hinduism and the healing art of Ayurveda are that the mind, spirit, body and world are different expressions of the same thing, and nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind. Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. With such expanded awareness the bodies immune system is strengthened.  Knowledge is obtained and retained by the mind based on observation and experimentation as well as transmitted from teacher to student. By optimizing the mind we can optimize the body and spirit.  When we meditate we enter a state of expanded awareness and inner quiet that refreshes the mind and restores balance thus improving the mind. Since the mind and body are inseparable, the body is naturally balanced through the practice of meditation. In the state of restful awareness created through meditation, your heart rate and breath slow, your body decreases the production of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, and you increase the production of neurotransmitters that enhance wellbeing- serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins.  Although this may not result in a complete cancer cure, it will certainly impact how you respond to cancer therapy.  Dr. Sharda believes that the physiologic environment of your body can either allow cancer to progress or strongly oppose the growth of cancer.  One aspect that is becoming understood is that the immune system is integral in identification of cancer and auto-destruction of that cancer.
