Scope and Application of Fundamental Principles of Ayurveda for the Management of Skin Disorders
Abstract: Our body is covered with a protective sheath called Skin. This not only protects us by atmospheric pollutants and many stressors but also reflects the state of metabolic function. If we go through the ancient ayurvedic literature we find that at many places the treatment module and drugs mentioned for the most internal organ/system- Nervous system has also been prescribed for the most external anatomical structure -Skin. As per the embryonic development of skin and Nervous system both are ectodermal in origin and this very fact was well known to our ancient Acharyas. Regarding the treatment modalities one should follow the fundamental principles of Ayurveda-Ahara (Diet), Nidra(Sleep) and Brahmacharya (Code of good conduct).The matter in detailed shall be discussed and be presented.
