Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential, providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behaviour and the proper use of our senses.
Health happens, according to Ayurveda, when the mind, emotions, body and spirit are all balanced. This occurs through proper thinking, diet, lifestyle and proper use of herbal remedies. Health is defined in this ancient Ayurveda sutra (aphorism) from the Sushutra Samhita:
“The one who is established in the Self, who has balanced doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), balanced agni (digestion that is quiet and regular), properly formed dhatus (tissues), proper elimination of malas (waste products) properly functioning bodily processes, and whose mind, soul, and senses are full of bliss, is called a healthy person.”
The aim of this system is to prevent illness, heal the sick and preserve life. This can be summed up as follows:
To protect health and prolong life ("Swasthyas swasthya rakshanam")
To eliminate diseases and dysfunctions of the body ("Aturasya vikar prashamanamcha")
It is for this reason that Ayurveda is primarily a prevention system. If we become ill it has medicine to treat the illness, but staying well is the best. medicine.
Ayurveda holds that specific disease conditions are symptoms of an underlying imbalance. It does not neglect relief of these symptoms, but its main focus is on the big picture: to restore balance and to help you create such a healthy lifestyle that the imbalance won't occur again.
Living in health and balance is the key to a long life free from disease.
Vata pertains to air and ether elements. This energy is generally seen as the force, which directs nerve impulses, circulation, respiration, and elimination.
Pitta pertains to fire and water elements. This dosha governs metabolism, e.g., the transformation of foods into nutrients. Pitta is also responsible for metabolism in the organ and tissue systems.
Kapha pertains to water and earth elements. Kapha is responsible for growth and protection. The mucousal lining of the stomach and the cerebral-spinal fluid that protects the brain and spinal column are examples of kapha.
