Ayurveda originated in India over 5000 years ago and is considered the oldest healing science. The knowledge of Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas, which are the world’s most ancient texts.
The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning the ‘Science of Life’. It is composed of two words: Ayu, meaning ‘Life’; and Veda, meaning ‘Knowledge’. Ayurveda is represented by the intelligent coordination of four components: soul, mind, senses and body.
As a holistic science, Ayurveda considers the harmonious functioning between each of the components as synonym of physical and mental well being. Ayurveda focuses in identifying and eliminating the root cause of the problem and strengthening the immune system. It addresses the physical body through specialized body treatments, medicated oils and herbs, and also stresses the importance of following a diet according to our own body constitution and lifestyle routines that will help to maintain and improve health, vitality and quality of life.
Ayurveda acknowledges that everything that exists and every living being is composed of five fundamental elements: air, ether, fire, water and earth. These elements give rise to the three biological intelligences called Doshas, which are:
Each of us is born with a particular proportion of all of the elements that manifest in our physical traits, physiology, behavior and even thought tendencies. This unique combination represents our constitution. By understanding our constitution, we empower ourselves to choose wisely whatever is best for our health that will support our journey through life day by day.
