Ayurveda is a science and an art of appropriate living, which helps to achieve longevity. It has gained importance nowadays as a healing system. Ayurveda can guide every individual in the proper choice of diet, living habits and exercise to restore balance in the body, mind and consciousness, thus preventing diseases.
According to Ayurveda, each human being is a unique phenomenon (manifested by the five basic elements - ether, air, fire, water and earth) of cosmic consciousness. Vata (ether plus air), Pitha (fire plus water) and Kapha (water plus earth) are called the Tridoshas, meaning the three humors or the three organizations of the body, which are also derived from consciousness. The balance of Vata-Pitha-Kapha is the natural order, thus when this balance is disturbed, it creates disorder. Order is health and disorder is disease. As there is a constant interaction between order and disorder within the body, with a proper understanding of the nature and structure of disorder, one can re-establish order.
Ayurveda has stood the test of time and is becoming more and more popular nowadays. Ayurveda is the alternative solution for today's ailments which have no cure in modern medical science. In today's fast paced world, Ayurveda is your means to vibrant good health!
