How it works
The main belief behind Ayurvedic medicine is that health problems happen when your mind, body and spirit are out of balance.
Ayurvedic practitioners believe we are made up of 3 elements known as doshas.
- air and space (vata dosha) which allows movement
- fire and water (pitta dosha) which allows for change and handles digestion and metabolism
- water and earth (kapha dosha)
which gives structure or cohesion These 3 doshas let the body’s organs work together in harmony. They also create your relationship with the environment and universe.
Ayurvedic practitioners believe that our health depends on the correct balance of all 3.
Practitioners claim that different combinations of Ayurvedic medicine bring balance and harmony into the body to help:
- increase energy and wellbeing balance
- mind, body and spirit
- decrease stress
- prevent and cure disease
