The system of Medicine that is said to have been revealed to the people by God himself. That is named Ayurveda (the science of life), wherein are laid down the good and bad of life, the happy and unhappy of life and what is wholesome in relation to life, as also the span of life” - Charaka Samhita.

Ayurveda is a holistic, ancient , time tested and traditional system of medicine that is indigeous to and widely practiced in India. The word Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term meaning “science of life”. Ayu means “life” or “daily living” and the word “veda” is “knowing”. Ayurveda was first recorded in the Vedas – the ancient texts of the Himalayan sages. The world’s oldest existant literature.

The Ayurvedic healing system has been practiced in daily life in India for more then 5000 years.The Vedas, made up of the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva Vedas in which the ancient scriptural knowledge is found, have been handed down to us generation by generation over several thousand years of oral tradition, before finally being recorded in written form. Rig veda, the foundation pillar and oldest of the vedas, contains many references to Ayurvedic principles, although Ayurveda itself was primarily developed from the Atherva Veda, the most recent of the Vedas. The mainstay of Ayurvedic knowledge we have today is found in two treatise, Charak Samhita and Sushrut Samhita, each of which first appeared at the turn of the first millenium B.C.

The main objective of Ayurveda is to impart health-full longevity and to relieve human suffering. This is achieved through appropriate regimes of Ahara, Vihara, and Ausadhis and systemic Samshodhana {detoxification} of the body.


Health, Disease & 3 Doshas (Kapha, Pitta, Vata)

In your Ayurveda Course, you will learn in depth about one of the most important parts of Ayurveda, the doshas. The Tridosha are the three biological units of the living body, which are responsible for its total functions. They are the result of a combination of the panchamahabhuta, or the five great elements that constitute the building blocks of life. The Tridosha control psychological and physiological bodily functions and, in equilibrium, uphold a person’s health. However, they are susceptible to imbalances, which cause disorders and illness. These vital elements of the cause, diagnosis and treatment of diseases are listed below:

Vata or wind:
Governs all motion in the body. It is composed of ether and air, which make it light, dry, mobile and cool. People with a predominance of vata in their body tend to exhibit these characteristics. When the Vata dosha is offset, it causes weight loss, constipation, arthritis, restlessness and digestive challenges.

Pitta or fire:
Governs all processes related to conversion and transformation throughout the mind and body. Pitta is primarily composed by fire, which make it hot, light, sharp and fluid. It also contains water, and thus is not moist nor dry. People with a predominance of vata in their body exhibit these characteristics, often in the shape of a fiery personality and oily skin. Pitta imbalances commonly manifest in the shape of infection, inflammation, rashes, ulcers, heartburn and fever.

Governs growth in the body. It is composed of water and earth, hence why it is moist, heavy, static, soft, cold and sticky. People with a Kapha energy are generally thicker and have denser bones and skin. They also have moist, soft skin and full, thick hair. Kapha imbalances are related to obesity, some types of cancer, bronchitis, lung congestion and fluid retention syndromes, among others.
