According to Ayurvedic philosophy, the entire cosmos is an interplay of the energies of the five elements— aakash (space), jala (water), prithvi (earth), teja (fire), and vayu (air). A combination of each element results in three doshas i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
Together, they are also called the Tri-Doshas – i.e. 3 energies that are crucial to the healthy functioning of the different body systems and the mind. Each dosha is made up of two of the five elements (air, earth, space, fire, and water).
Vata Dosha – Air + Space
Pitta Dosha – Fire + Water
Kapha Dosha – Earth + Water
These doshas are believed to be responsible for a person’s physiological, mental, and emotional health. Any imbalance between these 3 doshas makes your body prone to diseases. Traditional Ayurvedic Medicines based upon Ayurveda helps in balancing these doshas so that you can live a holistic life.
