Ayurveda is based on the understanding that the universe is made up of five elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Ether (space). These elements are represented in the human body by three “doshas” or energies. They are Vata, Pitta and Kapha, and are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. When any of the doshas accumulate in the body, or get out of balance, the body also loses its balance. Each individual has a distinct proportion of these three forces that shapes their nature, health, and well-being. In Ayurveda, each individual is considered one-of-a-kind, with a unique blueprint for health. Whenever the doshas become imbalanced, Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritional guidelines to assist the individual in reducing the dosha that has become excessive
