About Ayurveda

What is Ayurved ?
Ayurved literally means the “Science of Life”.According to astronomical records in ancient vedic texts,the vedic system,including Ayurved,was in practice before 4000 BC (Frawley,D.1989 )”.This time proven system of medicine has its origins in ancient India and is still being practiced today in many parts of the world with proven results.

Aspects which distinguish Ayurved in its approach to health care

– It focuses on establishing & maintaining balance of the life energies within us, rather than focusing on individual symptoms.
– It recogonizes the unique constitutional differences of all individuals & therefore recommends different regimens for different type of peoples.
– Ayurved is a complete medical system which recogonizes that ultimately all intelligence & wisdom flows from one absolute source (Parmatma). Ayurved assists Nature by promoting harmony between the individual & Nature by living a life of balance according to her laws.
– Ayurved describes three fundamental universal energies which regulates all natural processes on both macrocosmic & microscopic levels. These are known as Tridosha.
– Finally, the ancient Ayurvedic physicians realized the need for preserving the alliance of the mind & body & offers mankind tools for rembering & nurturing the subtler aspects of our humanity.Ayurved seeks to heal the fragmentation & disorder of mind-body complex & restore wholeness & harmony to all people.
Panch Mahabhutas – The Basic of all things .

Ayurved is also called as Ashtang-Ayurved meaning science of life having 8 main branches encompassing Internal medicine, Surgery, Treatment of supra-clavicular, disorders, Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Toxicology, Geriatrics including Rejuvenation Therapy, Science of Aphrodisiacs.

A distinguishing feature which sets Ayurved apart from other alternative systems of medicine is the fact that Ayurvedic treatment treats patient as a “whole” ie.a combination of the body, the mind and the soul.
This Vedic system of medicine repeatedly emphasizes the common origin of mankind and the universe.Our relationship with our environment is intrinsic.The elements which compose the universe also constitute the human body and therefore the laws which govern the universal elements also govern the human realm.

These profound concepts based upon an astute understanding of the universal laws and practical observations about the world around give us the indication about the holistic approach of Ayurved and its potential in alleviating many health related problems afflicting the whole of humanity.

Health is essential for enjoyment of all the worldly pleasures in a righteous manner. Ayurved goes much beyond the realms of ordinary medicine and gives practical measures on how to maintain and protect one’s health and well-being and promote longevity of life. Ayurved is thus not just a system of medicine,rather it’s a way of life !
Illness, according to Ayurved is a condition of imbalance which originates from some fundamental deficiency and something more than symptomatic relief is needed for its cure. Ayurvedic medicines predominantly being plant based are in close harmony with nature and hence easily assimilable by the human body.Ayurved thus helps maintain the integrity of the unique elemental balance in each individual and treats the ailment at its root cause.



The five element can be seen to exist in the material universe at all scales both organic and inorganic, form peas to planet. When they enter into the biology of a living organism, man for example, they acquires biological form. This means that the five elements are coded into three biological forces which governs all life processes. These three forces are known as the three doshas, or simply as the tridosha.


The term vata stems from a Sanskrit word “vaayu” which means “that which moves things”; it is sometimes translated as wind. It is composed of the element space or the air—the lightest and subtlest of the five elements. It is considered in some ways to be the most influential of the three doshas because it is the moving force behind the other two doshas, which are incapable of movement without it. Vata dosha is responsible for all the somatic activities and sensations. It is the intelligence which channels perceptions (temperature, pressure, sweetness, lightening, violin music, etc.) through the appropriate sensory organs, converts them into internal psychological events, and then orchestrates the appropriate response via the organs of action. It is responsible for all movements in the mind and body; the movement of the air in and out of the lungs, the flow of blood through the circulatory system, nutrients through the alimentary tract, and thoughts through the mind. Vata promotes a healthy balance between the through and emotion and gives rise to creativity, activity and clear comprehension. Because among other function, Vata regulates the nervous processes involved with movements, thought, emotions, eating, drinking, elimination, and our general functioning.


The term pitta comes from the Sanskrit word pinji meaning “to shine” (according to sir Monier Williams its exact entomology is a mystery). It carries the meaning of “that which digests” ans is associated with the idea of being yellow-tinged or bilious. In its widest sense, Paittika digestive function includes all chemical and metabolic transformation in the body as well as processes which promotes heats production (i.e. conversion of iodine to triiodotyrosine in the thyroid gland). Pitta also governs our ability to digest ideas and impression and to therefore perceives the true nature of the reality. It stimulated the intellect and creates enthusiams and determination. Pitta is often regarded as the “fire” within the body. Think of it as the energy stored in the chemical bonds of all the organic substances which makes us up; its encoded in our hormones, enzymes, organic acid, and neurotransmitters. Charaka Samhita, an ancient Ayurvedic text, teaches that pitta functions in digestion, heat production, providing color to the blood, vision and skin luster.


The term Kapha derives from the Sanskrit word “shlish” which means “that which holds things together; to embrace; coherent;”. In fact, one of the other designation for kapha appearing in some of the older literatures is shleshma. It is the force which provides structure to everything from an individual atom or the cell to the sturdy musculoskeletal frame. It gives strength, stability and endurance—both physical and psychological—and promotes human emotion and capacities such as love, compassion, empathy, understanding, forgiveness, loyalty and patience. One very important function of kapha dosha in the human body is that it governs immunity and resistance against disease; it’s energy promotes self-healing and the ongoing processes of self-repairs of which we are largely unaware. Where vata and pitta effects becomes active in the body, kapha acts to limit and control these two forces and prevent their excessive activity. The two mahabhuta which compose kapha are water and the earth. Together these two prototypical elements from the fundamental protoplasm of life. Kapha imparts mind-body-spirit stability and resilience. It is the anabolic force in the body which governs the formation of neuropeptides, stomach lining and all new cells and tissues of the body which are constantly being destroyed and re-created


Panch Mahabhutas-The basis of all things

Everything in the universe is made up of combination of the five elements (Panch Mahabhutas). These includes the human being which also acquires a soul or spirit .These five elements are : 1.Space or Akasha 2.Air or Vayu 3. Fire Tejas 4.Water or Apa 5. Earth or Prithvi

These five elements are to be understood in a material sense as well as a subtle sense .

By Earth we are to understand not only the terrain of our planet or the iron in our red blood cells & spleens, but also the quality of steadfastness of mind, strength of one’s moral fiber, one’s slow & quiet undeterred advancement towards a goal & the resistance to the menifestations of others.

By Water we mean to imply the cohesive aspects of reality which flows into & holds things together, perfectly & simply witnessed in the ubiquitous-H20 molecule.

By Fire we mean the universal forcein nature that produces heat & radiates light; it is our passion to persue despite obstacles & delays; it is what buns away the clock of ignorance (avidya) & allows the Truth to shine with brilliance.Fire removes doubt from mother-substance of human heart & replaces it with joy.

By Air we mean the transperent rarefied, kinetic force which sets the universe in motion; it moves the blood through vessels, waste from the body ,thought through the mind; it moves the birds to warmer climates in winter, it moves planets around their suns.

By Space we mean the subtlest of all elements which is everywhere & touches everything, in the mind it is the vessel which receives all impressions, in the heart space accepts love; space is receptivity & non resistence to what is true .

Balancing these elements in just the right way for each unique individual is the key to maintaining health & treating disease should it arise, whether it be physical, mental or spritual.
