Ayurveda is an ancient medicine system of the Indian subcontinent.
The ideology of Ayurveda says that disease occurs in the body because of an imbalance in the body’s energy. In Ayurvedic medicine, there are 3 energy types or doshas – Kapha, Pitta and Vata. Everyone has a combination of the doshas as a part of the body system. When these energy centers are imbalanced, Ayurveda, helps to restore balance to the body.
According to Ayurvedic perception the entire universe is composed from the 5 elements: Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space. Their interaction shapes nature on a macrocosmic level. Humans, as a microcosm of these interactions, express thre edifferent constitutional types: the three Doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Each of us is born with an individual Dosha, but its dominance can change depending upon the age of the person, their circumstances, and the season.
