Did you know, that most emotional, physical and mental health issues are actually rooted in your biological set up?

 

Ayurveda began about 5,000 – 6,000 years ago when Indian monks were looking for new ways to be healthy. Revering their bodies like temples, the monks believed that preserving their health would help them meditate and develop spiritually. Over thousands of years of observations, they gathered all their conclusions and advice and preserved it for future generations. This collection of knowledge came to be known as the “science or knowledge of life” — Ayurveda.

In Ayurveda it is believed that people are made up of five elements: Air, Space, Fire, Water, Earth and the Soul. These elements are also known as Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It is believed that every activity and is based on whether the Doshas are balanced or unbalanced.

Once you become aware of your DOSHAS you can adjust them to increase health and well-being.
