Ayurveda – The Science of Life
Ayurveda is the indigenous medical system of India, which is making its own place in the western world to its unique, pure, natural and holistic approach towards life.
The key to AYURVEDA is in treating mind, body, spirit as one entity to ensure total harmony and well-being and the focus is upon the individual, not the condition.
The belief of Ayurveda
AYURVEDA believes that everything in this universe is made up of five elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. These five elements combine in pairs to form three dynamic forces called DOSHAS which governs our inner and outer environments known as VATA (air), PITTA (fire), KAPHA (earth).
Each of us has a unique proportion of these three forces that shapes our nature (constitution). For each dosha there is a balanced and imbalanced expression.
