The three doshas

The basic concepts of Ayurveda are the three Doshas, literally meaning 'fault". They are Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which are a combination of five elements of nature, namely Earth, Water, Fire, Esther and Air. The core of Ayurveda is that these principles can be related to the basic biology of the body. The three doshas are energies, which regulate the life of all living being. The doshas determine and affect the biological, physiological and physio-pathological functions of the body, mind and consciousness. The composition of doshas varies from one individual to another. An excess deficiency of Vata, Pitta or Kapha causes an imbalance and is believed to be the root cause of ailments, physical or mental in nature. This in turn can influence your physical wellbeing, appearance, personality and character. Using botanical preparations, natural herbal supplements and their oils, adopting time-honored traditional therapies, a perfect physical and mental harmony and balance are derived to ensure a healthy life.
