Ayurveda, which translates to "knowledge of life," is an ancient Indian healing system aiming to preserve health and wellness. It achieves this by maintaining a balance among the mind, body, and spirit, thus preventing diseases rather than solely treating them. Ayurveda is composed of three doshas—vata, pitta, and kapha—representing different energies that are present from birth.
The doshas symbolize the five elements present in nature: Air, Fire, Water, Earth, and Ether. These elements constitute the fundamental components of life. Your doshas are determined at the moment of conception (Prakruti), and although each person possesses all three doshas, typically one or two hold a more prominent role. These doshas exhibit a continual state of change as you progress through life; factors such as age, diet, surroundings, seasons, and daily routines exert an influence on your doshas. As the doshas fluctuate and shift in balance over time, they wield an impact on your well-being, vitality, and overall emotional state.
