Arising from ancient India, thousands of years ago, Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word translated as "The Science of Life" is an ancient healing system based on a deep understanding of eternal truths about the human body, mind, and soul.
Its approach emphasizes the importance of addressing the roots, rather than the symptoms, of health and disease. Its "whole body" philosophy offers us advice about how to keep ourselves healthy and to rebalance us when we are unwell.
Your unique mind-body constitution comprises the five great elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Together they are the building blocks of our world. They create our foundation and structure (earth), movement and circulation (ether and air), transformation and metabolism (fire), and cohesiveness factor (water).
The five great elements translate into three Doshas or energies in our bodies. These Doshas are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. They comprise your Ayurvedic constitution, or in Sanskrit, your Prakriti. Every individual has all three Doshas present but in varying proportions. Once we know our Prakriti, we can integrate Ayurvedic practices that help keep us balanced, healthy, and happy. Balanced Doshas shield the body against disease. When out of balance they can contribute to the cause of disease. In Ayurveda, wellness equals absence of disease.
Small changes can have profound effects. It is a viewpoint that is simple without being simplistic and can be grasped by any one of us wanting to maximize our healing potential through a deeper understanding of our unique selves and the world around us.
