Ayurvedic Doshas– An Age-old Science Of Health: Part 1
Ayurveda is the millennia-old science of keeping the body, mind and soul healthy. Ayurveda helps us to understand how the energies work in the body and how we can achieve a state of health, contentment, vitality and joy in daily life.
Signs of a healthy body and mind:
- Shining eyes
- Shiny skin
- 3x hunger a day
- Regular bowel movements
- Creativity and love of life
The basic principle of Ayurveda is that the body consists of three basic energies – called doshas. The three doshas are composed of the five elements and are called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The three bio-energies are in balance in a healthy body.
According to Ayurveda, every illness arises from non-digestion. As a result, bio energies become unbalanced. Frequent causes for this are improper nutrition, stress and negative environmental influences.
Whether a food is healthy or not depends on what property and effect it has in the body and what constitution the person is inclined to. It is important to know about your own constitution.
To find out which type you belong to or whether your energies are in balance, we offer you a free constitution test on Ayuronics website. In our online shop you can then filter for the products that are suitable for your constitution.
