Ayurveda (Science of life)
Ayurveda is one of the oldest healing science. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “The Science of Life.”
Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is often called the “Mother of All Healing‘.
Ayurveda was officially recognised by WHO (World Health Organization) in 1976.
Ayurveda is also known as the science of living a healthy and illness free life. In olden days, man used to live close to nature and whenever he got exposed to some disease, he used to cure himself using resources and material provided by the Mother Nature. Ayurveda has natural healing ways that work on illnesses and improving the general wellness of the human body and mind.
Ayurveda emphasize on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health by balancing one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs.
Ayurvedic medicines heal your spirit and minds instead of just treating the affected body parts. It is based on purification of the body in a natural way and the environment created helps remove all toxins and help regain body’s natural tolerance or resistance from the diseases.
Ayurveda helps us to balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to maintain this balance. To learn how to balance the body, mind and consciousness requires an understanding of how vata, pitta and kapha work together. According to Ayurvedic philosophy the entire cosmos is an interplay of the energies of the five great elements—Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
Vata, pitta and kapha are combinations and permutations of these five elements that manifest as patterns present in all creation.
In the physical body, VATA is the subtle energy of movement, PITTA the energy of digestion and metabolism, KAPHA the energy that forms the body’s
VATA is the subtle energy associated with movement — composed of Space and Air. It governs breathing, blinking, muscle and tissue movement, pulsation of the heart, and all movements in the cytoplasm and cell membranes.
In balance, vata promotes creativity and flexibility. Out of balance, vata produces fear and anxiety.
PITTA expresses as the body’s metabolic system — made up of Fire and Water. It governs digestion, absorption, assimilation, nutrition, metabolism and body temperature.
In balance, pitta promotes understanding and intelligence. Out of balance, pitta arouses anger, hatred and jealousy.
KAPHA is the energy that forms the body’s structure — bones, muscles, tendons — and provides the “glue” that holds the cells together, formed from Earth and Water. Kapha supplies the water for all bodily parts and systems. It lubricates joints, moisturizes the skin, and maintains immunity.
In balance, kapha is expressed as love, calmness and forgiveness. Out of balance, it leads to attachment, greed and envy.
