The Science of Ayurveda

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

Ayurveda is India’s holistic, integrated, physiotherapeutic medical system. It is based upon the universal natural law of balancing the five elements that make up the physical body:

  • ether

  • air

  • fire

  • water

  • earth

When one or more of these elements go out of balance because of improper diet and life style, various diseases and mental disturbances can manifest. Ayurveda explains that these five elements are kept intact in the body by three subtle forces called doshas. The key to maintaining physical and mental health is in keeping these elements and doshas in harmonic balance through proper diet, herbs and life style, otherwise early aging and various diseases can manifest.
