A Survey of Ancient Wisdom of Life – Ancient Indian Ayurveda VS TCM

Both Ayurveda and Huangdi Neijing originated from the wisdom of life thousands of years ago, and their true origin time is too long to be verified, so we call it originated from mythology.

However, when we study these two teachings from different cultures and languages together, we will find that the content of these two important life science research materials can be connected with each other and explain each other’s theories.

Ayurveda written in Sanskrit and Siddha medicine in Tamil are based on the material universe we exist in, from a macro perspective, telling the orientation of the universe, the stars, the geography of mountains, rivers, lakes, seas, forests, and various medicinal plants. The unique attributes of the wind, divided into six different wind directions – seasons, so as to understand “how to maintain physical and mental balance and comfort in this lush and changeable natural environment”

On the other hand, the earliest written record about Chinese medicine is “Huangdi Neijing”.  It is also based on the five elements theory of the material universe, but from a microscopic perspective, it deeply summarizes and systematizes the structural anatomy theory of “qi / blood, yin / yang, excessive syndrome / deficiency syndrome” of the human body, and develops physiology and pathology from it. – Medicine, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, acupuncture, meridians, etc., laid the main foundation of TCM theory.

In the TULA WELLNESS system, we have integrated these two important ancient classics, and developed various exercises and treatments to help maintain the coordination of body, mind and soul.

Tula – derived from ancient Sanskrit, means “balance”, but balance does not mean staying still, but fine-tuning our thoughts, observing our own breathing, and maintaining awareness and understanding of the changing information and environment around us at any time & the ability to respond.

In the next chapter, let’s take a look together – the five elements of the material universe – explained from a macro perspective to a micro perspective.
