Ayurvedic Medicine

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda”) is one of the oldest healing systems (“whole body”) in the world. It was built over 3,000 years ago in India. It is based on the belief that health and wellbeing depend on the delicate balance between mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not to fight disease. But treatment options can be addressed for certain health problems. In the United States, it is considered a practical and alternative medicine (CAM). Those who work with Ayurveda believe that everyone is made up of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water and earth. These combine in the human body to form three life forces or super powers, called doshas. They control how your body works. They are Vata dosha (space and air); Pitta dosha (fire and water); and Kapha dosha (water and land).
