Ayurvedic medicine is based on the existence of an equivalence between the universe and the person, as well as the interrelation between the mind and the body, considering that any experience suffered by any of them interferes in the other.

What is Ayurvedic medicine?
Ayurvedic or traditional Indian medicine has a strong holistic root, considering the human being as a whole and not as the sum of its parts, combining mind, body and spirit. Based on the millenary medicine practiced in India, Ayurveda has more than 5,000 years of history. A medicine that is based on the Vedas, the oldest texts of wisdom of Indian literature and the basis of the disappeared Vedic religion (religion prior to Hinduism).

The principles of its philosophy are governed by the theory of the five elements: air, fire, water, earth, ether (space) whose predominance determines the doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

The three doshas or humors, constitute basic forces that interact and are present in the organism of all people. Vata (air and ether) expresses the force of movement, Pitta (fire and water) that of transformation and Kapha (water and earth) that of stability and structure. The dowsic constitution is the manifestation of the predominance of these forces in our being, representing a map of our strengths and weaknesses.

It is important to know that these three energies of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, manifest as forces that act in the organisms of all people.

The knowledge of this body constitution is one of the pillars of Ayurveda as it enables us to design and implement balance plans to improve our quality of life.

There are many factors that can alter our natural balance such as stress, lack of sleep, negative thoughts, an incorrect diet. Issues that are an aggression to our health, and that derive in some cases, in disease.
