The simple secret for our wellfare is to feed our body and mind in full consciousness  with the elements of the nature and to remain connected  with Mother Nature and the seasons. 

 

What is Ayurveda?

Our constitution is based on the 3 DOSHAS  Vata Pitta Kapha. Each individual was born with a mix of the 3 Doshas V P K with a different percentage of each.
These Doshas are based on the 5 elements called BHUTAS: ETHER, AIR, FIRE, WATER and EARTH - they are our 3 cosmic energies Air (Vata) Fire (Pitta) and Water (Kapha).
PRAKRITI is like our DNA. It is our Constitution for life. They are called Doshas. They are unique to every individual because it has been given at our conception and even before, from our parents and ancestors. It explains why all factors are taken on board in Ayurveda from parents and seasons, to environments and even astrology. Ayurvedic Doctors were also Astrologers.

VIKRITI it is looking for the unbalanced Doshas at the origin of problems and deterioration of health. For example, too much air in Pitta increases fire which dries the intestines. The nature of the imbalance is defined by the observation of the 5 senses and studying the symptoms which include the mental and the psychological temperament and behaviour of the patient.
The unbalanced DOSHAS are caused by the changes of the seasons and the rythm of the day which is dictated by the elements.
