Ayurveda is the traditional holistic healing system from India that views each person as an individual, with a unique mind-body constitution and set of life circumstances. It is known as the oldest medical system and current science proves what Ayurveda said 5000 years ago eg. about gut & brain connection or the importance of the circadian rhythm to maintain vitality and longevity.
The aim of Ayurveda is to treat the root cause of the illness by balancing our 3 doshas back to a natural state for optimum well-being. According to Ayurveda, our bodies are controlled by three bio-energetic forces called dosha which is made of a combination of 5 elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth. The doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha run all the body functions, and when in balance they maintain life. However, when one or more doshas are out of balance due to stress and the wrong diet, lifestyle, emotional blockages, or challenging life circumstances, it leads to various health conditions. For example, Vata dosha represents movement in the body it controls breath, the nervous system, and all the movements in the body. When balanced you experienced healthy blood circulation, bowel movement or regular menstruation. On a mental level, it brings creativity, inspiration, and imagination. When it goes out of balance you may notice constipation, dry skin, catch often infections and experience more emotions like fear, anxiety, feeling restless and lack of concentration.
