Origin and basic principles of Ayurveda!

The origin of Ayurveda cannot be fixed precisely in terms of time.
 It is based on the Vedas, the oldest sacred scriptures of ancient India.

The ancient Indian Sanskrit term "Ayurveda" means "The knowledge of life"!
Actually nothing more than to live according to one's nature and one's needs.
If you are already doing this and are satisfied with it, then you are actually already doing Ayurveda!

Ayuveda is considered to be one of the most comprehensive medical systems in the world, it is a health system

that includes all aspects of life, both physical and material, as well as mental and spiritual.

Health in the Ayurvedic sense means:

* balanced digestion/metabolism
* A well-built tissue and adequately eliminated waste products
* Properly functioning sensory and tactile organs
* the life energies Vata, Pitta and Kapha should be in harmony

Ayurvedic teachings focus on a holistic view of man, nature and the cosmos.
It is the concept of the three doshas.
It is nature's three simplest patterns that govern life.

 

These life energies (Doshas) are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. 

They determine our physical and mental nature.
They determine what talents and physique we have, what suits us and what doesn't.
Whether we are mentally, musically or more mechanically inclined. You control all processes on a physical level.
