Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 5000 years ago in India.
It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Is main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared towards specific health problem.
Ayurveda And Your Life Energy
If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe, you have good health. When something disrupts this balance, you get sick
Those who practice Ayurveda believe every person is made of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water, and earth.
These combine in the human body to from three life forces or energies, called doshas. They control how your body works. They are Vata dosha (space and air); Pitta dosha (fire and water); and Kapha dosha (water and earth).
Everyone inherits a unique mix of the three doshas. But one is usually stronger than the others. Each one controls a different body function. It’s believed that your chances of getting sick—and the health issues you develop—are linked to the balance of your doshas.
