Ayurvedic Principles

The Practice of Ayurvedic Medicine is derived from the philosophy of Ayurveda. In essence, Ayurveda explains the laws of nature and the guidelines to follow these laws.Thus, it helps in understanding the cycle of day & night, environmental factors, changes in seasons and physical qualities of living things that greatly influence the life (Ayu)

  • Body (Sharira)
  • Senses (Indriyas)
  • Mind (Satva)
  • Spirit (Atma)

Ayurveda, a universal knowledge with universal principles that, can be applied into practices of health & well-being

Tridosha Theory

The basic view of Ayurveda is that all of the living beings, people, food, animals, plants, rocks, and nature, are made up of the five great elements (panch mahabuta): space, air, fire, water & earth. These elements represent 20 qualities or 10 pair of opposite qualities. The five elements, when combined in a specific pairs, release the energy forces that makes up the tridosha(three doshas).

The tridoshas are Vata (space & air) Pitta (fire & water) Kapha (water & earth). These doshas inherits the qualities from their combined elements thus representing them at all levels of existence. Each individual innate constitution has a specific combination of dosha, known as Prakriti in Sanskrit. Each dosha relates to a certain physical, mental and emotional characteristics, and health concerns. Deepening your relationship to your natural constitution, with supportive diet and lifestyle, are the key in maintaining the state of balance.

Health & Disease

Charaka, the father of ayurvedic medicine, states
Health ‘Swasthya’ as “Dhatusamyam Prasanna-Atma-Indriya” meaning:
Well balanced metabolism a happy state of the being, mind & senses.

Disease “Asasthya” as “Dukkha Samyoga” meaning:

The main objective of Ayurveda is restoration & maintenance of metabolic equilibrium i.e. “Dhatu samya kriya” in Sanskrit.
