Ayurveda, called a ‘Science of Life,’ originated in India 5,000 years ago. In Ayurvedic theory, individuals are composed of five basic elements:
air - associated with the nervous system
fire - with metabolism
water – with body fluids
earth - with the minerals that make up bone and muscle
space - everything that holds the body together
The predominance of elements make up three primary constitutions (body-mind types) in individuals. In Ayurveda, these are called ‘doshas.’ They are named: Vata, which has air as the predominant element; Pitta, with fire predominant; and Kapha, with earth and water predominant.
Ayurvedic system of healing works with the Laws of Nature to create health and balance – a state where body, mind, emotions and spirit harmonize in perfection. Based on the principle that the body will heal itself if imbalances are corrected and maintained, Ayurveda relies on the use of herbs and oils and some minerals for therapeutic use.
