Ayurveda is a 5000 year old medical system from the ancient Indus Valley and is a proven system of prevention and healing. Ayurveda's goal is to achieve health by working toward balance and harmony within ones mind, body and soul. The primary focus of ayurveda is to promote wellness rather than fight disease. Ayurveda states that every person is made of a combination of five basic elements found in the universe: Space or air, fire, water, earth.
These elements combine in the human body to form three life forces or energies, called doshas. They control how your body works. The three doshas are:
Vata dosha (space and air)
Pitta dosha (fire and water)
Kapha dosha (water and earth)
Everyone inherits a unique mix of the three doshas. One dosha is usually more dominant. Each dosha controls a different body function. It is believed that your chances of getting sick are linked to the balance of your doshas.
