Ayurveda is the most ancient and traditional science, whose basic principles deal with the natural way of living a healthy life. In Ayurveda, health is defined as a state in which the structure and function of a particular individual is working optimally and the individual is in a state of physical, mental and spiritual equilibrium.
Ayurveda is based on certain theories like Panchamahabhutha theory and Tridosha theory. Ayurveda believes that everything in this universe is made up of five basic elements. These five elements are earth , water , fire , air and ether or space and collectively they are termed as Panchmahabhuta. Ayurveda believes that every living creature in the universe is made up of the five elements, which serve as the building blocks of life. Life doesn’t exist without these five elements . The permutation and combination of these elements and its quantity in a given matter determines its properties. Tridoshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha are biological derivatives of the five basic elements present in the Universe.
At the time of conception, permutations and combinations of Vata, pitta and kapha determine the constitution of the new individual. These three metabolic forces govern all biological, psychological and physiological functions of the body, mind and consciousness and have subtle properties. Vata Dosha is responsible for movement, Pitta Dosha is responsible for transformation and lubrication is provided by Kapha Dosha. Kapha Dosha also binds two things together.The nervous system functioning by modern physiology for example, can be identified with Vata. The chemical process being carried out in the human body can be attributed to Pitta, including enzymes, hormones and the complete nutritional functioning and the activities of the skeletal and the anabolic system, actually the whole physical volume of an organism and all body fluids, can be identified with Kapha.
Vata, Pitta & Kapha are considered in Ayurveda to be the representative of Air, Sun and Moon respectively in the body. Their function is similar to that of Air, Sun and Moon in nature. Moon and its representative Kapha performs the function of nurturing or greasing in the universe and body respectively. Sun and its representative Pitta performs the function of absorbing and transforming in the universe and the body respectively. Air and its representative Vata performs the function of movement in the universe and body respectively.
This reveals that the ancient medicinal form of Ayurveda is closely related to Mother Nature. Ayurveda focuses more on healthy living than treatment of diseases. The main concept of Ayurveda is that it personalizes the healing process.
