Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system that is prevalent in India since ages. The practise is mentioned in Atharva Veda (Religious Sanskrit literature) and passed down to us by our ancestors. It is mainly a holistic approach to keep our mind, body, and soul in a balance of health and peace. It not only provides a cure for various diseases but it is rather a way to live life. It helps our body to form a more connected relation with the surroundings.
The Ayurvedic practice helps us to cleanse our body, mind, and soul in relation to that of our surroundings by focusing on three energies or “Doshas” which are:-
- Vata (Air) – Gets rid of toxins and stabilizes body functions
- Pitta (Fire and water) – Improves digestion, metabolism, and appetite
- Kapha (Earth and water) – Increases body strength and boosts immunity
With time, even Ayurveda has transformed to meet requirements of convenience and accessibility. The traditional formulations are now available in modern forms like tablets, capsules, or ointments. They provide the same benefit and have the same effect that is promised by the Ayurvedic system.
