Ayurveda or Ayurvedic Medicine is one of the worlds most sophisticated and mind-body health system. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally translates as “the wisdom of life” or “the knowledge of longevity”. It is designed to bring the body back into balance and it’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
Ayurveda’s fundamental approach is that you must reach your state of balance in your whole being- body, mind, and spirit. It is determined by 3 constitutional principles: pitta, vata and kapha.
Pitta energy brings forth the qualities of fire and water. Its domain is the principle of transformation. Pitta is thought to oversee digestion, metabolism, temperature maintenance, sensory perception, and comprehension. Imbalanced pitta can lead to ulcers, inflammation, digestive problems, anger, heartburn and arthritis.
Vata energy is composed of air and space. It regulates the principle of movement as such, it is linked any bodily motion—chewing, swallowing, nerve impulses, breathing, muscle movements, thinking, peristalsis, bowel movements, urination, menstruation which requires a balanced vita. When out balanced, any numbers of these movements may be deleteriously affected.
Kapha energy composed of earth and water. It governs stability and structure and forms the substance of the human body. An excess of kapha leads to obesity, diabetes, sinus problems, insecurity and gallbladder issues.
