The Basic Concept of Ayurveda

Ayurveda States that their are 5 Basic Elements found in the universe : Air, Water, Fire, Ether and Earth

During the course of life, the dosha proportions deviate (vikrti) from its original state (prakrti) for various reasons and subsequently, it has an impact on our mental and physical health condition. Psychic consciousness, thoughts, emotions, relationships, diet, daily rhythm, lifestyle, season and our environment, all influence the balance or imbalance of the doshas. These three primary life principles cannot be perceived separately and independently. Their functions are mutually linked and complementary.
