There are many methods, which can help you, depending on the illness, used by academic medicine. However, they are usually called as quick fix. True healing takes place longer but doing some things for ten minutes daily or even more often will improve your health significantly and permanently.

What Is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is one of this healing methods. It is a system of self-care, holistic Indian medicine, which has been practiced for 5 thousand years. You can apply it to both physical and mental illnesses. This ancient philosophy that is based on the understanding of the age-old truths according to which well-being depends on the balance between body, spirit and mind. Ayurveda is a combination of the words Ayuh – meaning "life" and Veda, or knowledge, which in total means "knowledge of life" or "course of life".

The concept of Ayurveda has been recognized since 1979 by the World Health Organization as one of the few unconventional medicine systems that uses surgery. Unfortunately, still some people perceive this system as pseudoscience because it is a combination of empirical phenomena and metaphysics.

But Ayurveda is not only medicine, but a combination of medicine, philosophy, psychology, alchemy and spirituality, as well as astrology. The whole concept of this discipline includes leading a healthy lifestyle, herbal prevention, natural biorhythm, nutrition, detoxification of the body and energy balance.

The Concept of Doshas and Five Elements

The philosophy of Ayurveda claims that each person is unique, which means that there is no universal recipe for well-being, and everyone comes to their Ayurveda individually. Hence, there are three types of physique distinguished there as Doshas (i.e., vata, kapha and pitta) plus their combinations. More about them below. Prevention is crucial and should focus on lifestyle, regeneration of the body and diet. Only then can we achieve longevity and health.

The concept of the Five Elements

The Five Elements: ether (akasha), air (waju), fire (agni), water (jala) and earth (prythwi) are another conception, like the Chinese one. However, there is one more important detail in ayurveda: living beings consist of one more element – it is prana, which is life force, the energy responsible for physical, mental and spiritual health.

Why are five elements so important? Because we are a mixture of them, just like all the elements of our reality. Depending on the contribution of elements in our body, soul and mind, the energy in your body manifests itself in three ways (called Doshas) vata, pitta and kapha. Doshas define your appearance, character, habits, tendencies to certain behaviours, or susceptibility to diseases. Therefore, the lack of energy fluency and any energy disturbances in the individual elements can lead to diseases and other imperfections that manifest in the physical body. Let’s read a couple of words about of each Dosha:

Vata consists of wind and ether, and it is an energizing force for the mind and body. It is considered as the energy of circulation, movement, breathing, heartbeat.  

Pitta consists of fire and water, which means the energy of transformation that and is involved in digestion, absorption, regulates body temperature.

Kapha consists of earth and water, the elements of protection and structure. They are nourishing the body and its growth; hydration and they support the immune system. Kapha is consistency.
