What is Ayurveda? 

Core Principles

1. Five Elements: Ayurveda posits that everything in the universe is made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether.


2. Tridosha Theory: These five elements combine in various ways to form three primary life forces or energies, known as 'doshas': Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.


3. Balance and Harmony: Health is perceived as a state of balance among the doshas, while disease is a state of imbalance.

4. Mind-Body Connection: Ayurveda places a significant emphasis on the interconnection between the mind and body for achieving optimal health.

Key Components

- Diagnosis: In Ayurveda, diagnosis is often made through pulse reading, tongue examination, and a detailed patient history.


- Treatment: Treatment plans may include a combination of herbal remedies, diet changes, physical activities, and lifestyle adjustments.


- Panchakarma: This is a detoxification procedure aimed at cleansing the body of impurities.

Therapeutic Approaches

2. Herbal Medicine: Various herbal concoctions and supplements are used for treating conditions.


3. Yoga and Exercise: Physical postures and breathing exercises are often integrated into the treatment plan.
