Ayurveda considers health as harmony between body, mind and spirit with the universe we live in.
Ayurveda is based on the theory of 5 basic elements found in the universe; space, air, fire, water and earth. The five basic elements combine in the living beings to form 3 doshas /energies/humours which are responsible for our health and ill health. The three doshas are Vata (space and air), Pitta (fire and water) and Kapha (earth and water).
Ayurveda believes that everyone inherits the unique combination of doshas. They are all in different proportions and strongest doshas decide our unique constitution (unique physical and mental traits). These doshas control the different functions in our body. The balance of the these doshas lead to health and imbalance leads to ill health.Read more
