Vata, Pitta and Kapha are three energies. When they are in balance state they govern our psychophysiological functions very well. However, when they become out of balance they start to pollute tissues and create diseases. It means disease is a state of imbalance of doshas, Vata, Pita, Kapha.
Ayurveda philosophy is based on five elements. They are space, air, fire, water, and earth. These are the building blocks that govern entire cosmos, all living and nonliving things, even our body as well. Based on this, Ayurveda classified human bodies in seven categories we call this “Prakriti’ or bodytype. “Prakriti” tells us the level of dosha in a person, which dosha is more prominent and which dosha is less. It will guide us how to maintain our health, know which food and diet is good and what lifestyle will be good to keep balanced three dosha and maintain health and well being!!!
