The main cause of imbalances in Doshas, Dhatus (Tissues) and Agni (Digestive Fire) is the lack of co-ordination between mind, body and consciousness. In addition to this, polluted environment, polluted thoughts, processed, polluted food, unhealthy lifestyle also contribute to diseases.
Ayurveda focuses on spiritual upliftment, Diet (Ahara), Lifestyle (Vihara), Panchakarma (Detoxification) and Herbs as the primary tools for treatment of diseases. Ayurveda along with Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation is the best combination to treat a disease at its root cause and promote optimal health.
Ayurveda’s holistic approach of healing cleanses the Mind, Body and Consciousness by eliminating the root cause and restoring Health (Swasthya), Bliss and Harmony.
Ayurveda revolves around three main life energies (3 Doshas / Tridosha) viz. Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Tridosha are the governing energies of our physiology. These are responsible for the balances and imbalances in our physiology when they are healthy and vitiated respectively.
Agni (The digestive fire) is responsible for digestion, metabolism and transformation in our physiology. Agni is regarded as the most influential factor for the wellbeing of an individual. A vitiated Agni is responsible for diseases in our physiology.
The 7 Dhatus (Tissues) in our physiology viz. Rasa (Lymph, plasma), Rakta (Blood), Mamsa (Muscle), Meda (Fat), Asthi (Bones), Majja (Bone Marrow) and Shukra (Semen) are vital for the functioning of our body. The essence of these 7 tissues is known as ‘Ojas’ which is responsible for maintaining immunity in our physiology. Thus, it is necessary to ensure that all seven tissues are in a healthy state.
The 3 Malas (Excretory products) viz. Purish (Feces), Mutra (Urine) and Sweda (Sweat) : Balanced excretion of these three malas everyday helps in keeping the body healthy.
