What is the relevance of the offense and defence strategies?

In fighting any war or conflict, we need both an offense and a defence strategy.

We see this phenomenon in several scenarios:

  • Championship-winning coaches win the game by using both strategies.
  • During the medieval era, warriors fought with both a sword to attack their opponent, and a shield to defend themselves.

In the war against disease, modern medicine is fighting with offense strategy only and losing the battle. Without a defence strategy, we are unable to prevent disease.

What is the need for Symbiohealth?

Our current system of medicine is an excellent disease-management system. Using state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures, medicines with a specific point of action, sophisticated surgical procedures, transplants and vaccines, physicians have been able to help a large number of patients find relief.

However, there is a large number of patients who find partial to no improvement along with adverse effects from medication or treatment. Moreover, the cost of healthcare is escalating at a rapid pace and treatment is becoming less and less accessible to the public. In the US, businesses are finding it to be increasingly difficult to provide healthcare to their employees, and the government is reforming the healthcare system to provide coverage to over 40 million uninsured Americans.

With the health needs of the population not being fully met, people are looking for medical care that is more effective, less toxic and within their means. Symbiohealth provides an answer to this problem by directly addressing the needs of the population.

What is Symbiohealth?

Symbiohealth is a healthcare system that utilizes both offense and defence strategies to prevent and treat disease. Combining ayurvedic principles with modern medicine, Symbiohealth practicing physicians can provide more personalized and comprehensive treatment to their patients. The result is a healthcare system that is more effective, less toxic, less expensive and creates a healthier society.

What is Ayurveda and why is it important?

Ayurveda is a healthcare system that originated in India over five thousand years ago. It works primarily by making the body strong to fight disease. Health is defined as a balanced state of biophysical and psycho-spiritual components. With Ayurveda’s built-in defence strategy of prevention, it serves as the perfect solution to providing more comprehensive care to the masses.

What are doshas? Why are they important?

According to ayurveda, the doshas are the three essential components of body that govern different functions. Vata governs movement in the body, pitta governs the metabolic and digestive processes, and kapha governs structure, cohesion, growth and repair of the tissues. Each person has a unique proportion of the three doshas, which gives light to the person’s physical and cognitive characteristics. In ayurveda, health exists when the natural proportion of doshas is maintained. To maintain this natural proportion, it is important to ensure that your lifestyle is conducive to your body type. Eating and exercising should be done according to what your dosha can handle. This will help to keep the body strong enough to fight disease.

How do we incorporate Symbiohealth into our lifestyle?

In order to incorporate Symbiohealth into our lifestyle we must focus on adopting a strong defence strategy. With our offense strategy already intact, we must build our defence strategy to preserve our health. A strong defence strategy is made up of several components: diet, exercise, meditation, breathing and massage are some of the most basic methods of rejuvenation and health preservation.
