Ayurveda is an ancient health care tradition that has been practiced in India for at least 5,000 years. The word comes from the Sanskrit terms ayur (life) and veda (knowledge).
Some researchers who study Ayurveda believe that understanding a patient's doshas — and in turn his or her prakruti — can help determine that patient's risk of developing certain diseases or health conditions
Ayurveda describes the Vedic wisdom of how to live a healthy and peaceful life. Together with Yoga, it gives a detailed blueprint for a fulfilled enlightened life. Ayurveda is based on the premise that the universe is made up of five elements:Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Aether. These elements are represented in humans by three ‘Doshas’, or Energies:
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 the right balance of the three Doshas (Tridoshas). Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to help individuals reduce the excess Dosha.
