How to Avoid Falling Sick During Monsoons? Follow These Ayurvedic Tips

Ayurveda is made up of two Sanskrit words: Ayu which means life and Veda which means the knowledge of. Ayurveda is more than just a medical system. It is a Science of Life.

We all are part and parcel of nature. We are all part and parcel of nature. Just as the animals and plants live in harmony with nature and utilize the Laws of Nature to create health and balance within their beings, we, too, adhere to these very same principles. Therefore, it is fair to say that Ayurveda is a system that helps maintain health in a person by using the inherent principles of nature to bring the individual back into equilibrium with their true self. In essence Ayurveda has been in existence since the beginning of time because we have always been governed by nature's laws. Ayruveda is a holistic form of medicine. That means it treats you as a whole - body, mind and spirit.
‘AYURVEDA’ an old medical science of India evolved from the strong cultural and philosophical back ground. In ancient India all Knowledges available at that time were compiled in ‘Vedas’. Vedas are known as the oldest scripts of knowledge.
According to the philosophy of ancient India everything in this universe are made up of five basic elements. This theory is called ‘Panchamahabhutha theory’. Ayurveda accepted Panchamahabhutha theory, and the science is built upon the basis of this theory.
These five elements are ,
1 Prithwi bhutha (Earth element)
2 Ap bhutha (Water element)
3 Agni bhutha (Fire element)
4 Vayu bhutha (Air element)
5 Akasa bhutha (Ether element)
These five basic elements combined in different ratios and combinations to form every thing in the universe .But in the case of living things there is a special ratio of combination to produce three functional elements, they are called as ‘Doshas’or bioenergies. These doshas are ‘Vatha’, ‘Pitha’, and ‘Kapha’.
Vatha is formed from the combination of elements air and ether
Pitha is formed from fire and water element
Kapha is formed water and earth element
Doshas control all the body activities
General Description of Ayurvedic Doshas and Their Manifestations in the Body
Most of us have a predominant dosha in our constitution, and some people have a dual doshic constitution, where two doshas are equally predominant. It is extremely rare to find someone with all doshas in equal proportions. In any case, is it important to remember that the body mind complex is a dynamic unity and all three doshas are constantly interacting with each other and with the environment. In Ayurveda, there are three dosha-predominant constitutions or Prakrutis (also prakritis): Vata predominant, Pitta predominant, and Kapha predominant; three dual dosha constitutions, where two doshas are equally or nearly equally predominant: Vata-Pitta, Pitta-Kapha and Vata-Kapha; and one tridoshic Prakruti with all three doshas equally prominent: Vata-Pitta-Kapha.
