About Ayurveda

Ayurveda and your body type (Dosha)

 

Ayurveda is a holistic healing science based on the fundamental principles of life designed to achieve health and longevity.  The term 'Ayurveda' literally means knowledge (Veda) of life (Ayur) in Sanskrit. Originating in India around 3,000 BC this science was developed by vedic sages and passed down through generations. 

The Ayurvedic system provides insights into your unique mind-body type (Dosha) , daily and seasonal regimens to preserve health and prevent disease, effective ways to build immunity and minimize the impact of age and when and how to detoxify and rejuvenate your mind and body through various panchakarma therapies. 

In Ayurveda everything is composed of five elements - ether, air, fire, water and earth. These five elements form the basis of three biological humours or 'doshas'  : Vata, Pitta, Kapha. Everyone of us has a unique combination of the three doshas and the fundamental goal of Ayurvedic practice is to maintain or restore your innate doshic balance. The seasons, our age, dietary habits and lifestyle choices have a profound influence on the balance of our doshas.
