Ayurveda is an ancient Indian form of alternative medicine that works according to the laws of nature to promote harmony within and without. Just as the weather changes from season to season, so do the practices of Ayurveda. In this sense, an individual gains health, vitality, and balance by living in accordance with the natural rythmic cycles of the Earth. This Philosophy also takes into account that all people are individuals with different body types, different personalities and different needs.
Ayurveda recognises that we all posses a unique constitution, composed of a combination of the Elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. To make things easier these Elements are partnered up to create the energetic forces that govern our psychological and physiological well being.
These energetic forces are known as "Doshas". Ether and Air create Vata Dosha, Fire and Water create Pitta Dosha and Water and Earth create Kapha Dosha. Each one of us is born with a unique combination of these three forces, which make up our genetic Blue Print, or what Ayurveda calls "Prakruti". This Blue Print of the Doshas make us who we are, and when they are in perfect balance we experience a state of optimal health that allows all of our best qualities to come to fruition. However when these forces are out of balance (Vikruti) one may experience emotional instability and physical distress which can lead to a state of Dis -Ease in the body and mind.
