Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India that aims to prevent illness. It emphasises re-establishing balance in the body through diet, lifestyle, exercise and body cleansing.

Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of 5 elements: air, fire, water, earth and ether. These elements are represented in humans by 3 doshas, or energies: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

The three doshas

When any of the doshas accumulate in the body beyond the desirable limit, the body loses its balance. Every individual has a distinct balance, and our health and well-being depend on getting a right balance of the three doshas.

  • Vata relates to air and ether elements. Vata is seen as the force that directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration, and elimination.
  • Kapha relates to water and earth elements. Kapha is responsible for growth and protection - the cerebral-spinal fluid that protects the brain and spinal column are examples of Kapha.
  • Pitta relates to fire and water elements. Pitta governs metabolism – the transformation of foods into nutrients, as well in the organ and tissue systems.
