Frequently Asked Questions

Referred to as the ‘Mother of all healing’, Ayurveda is the world’s oldest system of medicine that is around 5000 years old. The term ‘Ayurveda’ is a Sanskrit word where ‘Ayu’ means life and ‘Veda’ means knowledge. Ayurveda focuses on three aspects of life – physical, mental, and spiritual. It is not only the science of diseases but also the science of life. It dictates a way of life that will ensure a fulfilled and joyful existence. Ayurvedic treatments strive to holistically treat a disease by focusing not just on its symptoms, but also on its root cause.

Ayurveda runs on two principles:

  1. ‘Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam’ which means to prolong a joyful life and maintain good health.

  2. ‘Aturasya vikar prashamanamcha’ which means to completely cure diseases.

According to Ayurveda, the human body is made up of 5 basic elements – ‘Panch Mahabhutas’ – Aakasha (Ether), Agni (Fire), Vayu (Air), Aapa (Water), and Prithvi (Earth). Another important component of life is Aatma (spirit). The three physiological entities responsible for carrying out bodily functions are known as Tridoshas (bio-energies) –

  1. Vata dosha – constituted by the elements of space and air that govern our body movement

  2. Pitta dosha – constituted by the elements of fire and water that govern our metabolism, temperature, digestion and nutrition

  3. Kapha dosha – constituted by the elements of water and earth that govern our structure and lubrication.

An imbalance in any of these Tridoshas lead to various diseases. Ayurveda strives to bring back the balance in the three doshas by focusing on habit, constitution, environment, and illness.
