THEORY OF AYURVEDA
One of the key ideas within Ayurveda is the one of five basic elements: Water, Earth, Air, Fire, and Ether. Each of us consists of different combinations of these elements, and together they form our uniqueness. These bio-energetic forces constitute the so called ''dosha system' and they also help us to better understand ourselves.
- Vata dosha - Air and Ether
- Pitta dosha – Fire and Water
- Kapha dosha – Earth and Water
Proceeding from pulse analysis (Prakruti), the Ayurvedic therapist/physician determines the predominant doshas which control one's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self. Based on the diagnosis, the therapist/physician recommends appropriate diet, lifestyle (sleep, sport, meditation), therapies, oils, herbs and Ayurvedic medicines to harmonize and heal one's body, mind and soul.
