AYURVEDA

WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

   Ayurveda is the Indian traditional medicine which has more than 5.000 years of antiquity, in fact, it is considered that it is the most ancient form of healing in the world. This practice, which looks for a harmony between body, mind and spirit, it is deeply connected to yoga and meditation.

A little of theory…

In Sanskrit language, “ayu” it means “life” and “veda” means “knowledge”. The Ayurveda is so the “science of the life “. It is related to a life style, since it does not only centers on treating illnesses but on maintaining an optimum state of health and to prevent any diseases. Its main focus is to find harmony between the body, the mind and the soul.

In order to have this harmony, Ayurveda believes that is necessary to eat healthy and balanced, to rest, to do some physical exercise and maintain a correct breathing technique. This last two is where yoga and meditation have a big impact.

The doctrinal base of Ayurveda:

Ayurvedic Medicine describes the pañchamabhutas or ‘five (fundamental) elements’:

  1. bhumi:’earth’
  2. yata:’water’
  3. agni:’fire’
  4. vaiú:’air’
  5. akasha:’ether’

We can find these elements within our whole body, which combined together form 3 main energies known as doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.  Everyone has these three presents, however one or two are usually predominant.

Every dosha brings to each individual, physical and mental characteristics known as PRAKRUTI.

The Charaka-samhita defines the doshas the following way:

 Dosha VATA: People who have a predominance of this dosha present a thin constitution, limited bony structure, sensitive, dry and rough skin, clear color, dry hair, very marked veins. They tend to be active, intelligent, anxious and creative.

 Dosha PITTA: People who have a predominance of this dosha present medium-sized bony structure sensitive sometimes greasy skin, thin hair of soft tones and translucent veins.

Dosha KAPHA: People who have a predominance of this dosha present big constitution (big tendency to the increase of weight and to possess major physical force), greasy skin, thick and greasy hair, of dark color. Its character is predominantly pacific and much calmed. Its appetite and digestion are slow.

 

When an imbalance takes place between the doshas (VIKRUTI) it is when the illnesses might appear.

  • An imbalance with vata can lead to insomnia, digestive problems, lack of attention, constipation, pain in the joints, among others.
  • An imbalance with pitta causes changes of humor, acne or stomach acidity, for example.
  • And a kapha disorder can bring obesity or depression, nasal congestion, diabetes.

  • Understand your unique mind-body constitution and therefore its specific needs.
