The word “Ayurveda” comes from Sanskrit and means roughly “the knowledge of life”. Indian physicians have been practicing Ayurveda for over 5,000 years. Ayurveda is not only an alternative cure but a concept that encompasses virtually all aspects of life.

According to the teachings of Ayurveda, there are three doshas – biological principles associated with the five basic elements:   

Vata (air and ether/space)

Pitta (fire, air and water)

Kapha (water and earth)

Every human being is born with a combination of these three factors – his or her basic pattern. This original pattern composed of Vata, Pitta and Kapha  should be preserved to the extent possible. The better the balance in the body, the stronger the immune system – which means better health.

The art of living consists in finding and maintaining the best possible balance – not only at the physical level but mentally and in terms of energy as well. Ayurveda comprises a number of proven rules for maintaining or restoring optimum balance. 

People who follow traditional approaches like Ayurveda develop the desire to abandon firmly establish habits and try new ways of living.

Healthy people are those with happy and satisfied souls!
