Basics of Ayurveda - How to maintain disease resistant body.

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is composed of ayus which means "life", and veda which means "knowledge" or "science". Ayurveda is thus the Science of Life, Knowledge about Life or a Sensible Way of Living based on Knowledge.

What is meant by therapy?
It derived from Greek word(therapie) means service. Phytotherapy means Phyto=Plants and theraphy means service altogether service through plants or healing with plants. Ayurveda is a phytotherapy.

Ayurveda is the concept of living harmony with plants. Plants give us Food, Oxygen, Wood for - building houses; objects; paper, Medicines(herbs), Flowers, Perfumes and cloths to cover us.They also giving recreation in parks. Plants are giving so many things to us. But what we are giving in return, answer is with you.

Ayurveda is not considered to be a state of freedom from all diseases, It is considered as uninterrupted happiness - physically, mentally and spiritually.

What is difference between Allopathy and Ayurveda?
Can Penicillin(antibiotic) given to healthy person? No Right. But All Ayurvedic products can be used on healthy person, no side effects.
Coming to topic, Our body is composed of three fundamental elements(Doshas / Dhatus)
​Balance between 3 doshas are very important for good health. Vata is very active and drive passive Kapha and Pitta.

Vata can cause 80 disturbances in body when it is not balance.Vata governs air and space in our body. Ex: Pain, Hypertension, Heart pumping, Excretion, Paralysis are due to Vata
Pitta can cause 40 disturbances in body when it is not balance. Pitta governs Fire and Water. Ex: Body temperature, Digestive fire, Hunger, Thirst, Ulcers are due to Pitta
Kapha can cause 20 disturbances in body when it is not balance.Kapha governs Water and Earth(solid) Ex: mucus, joints, obesity, laziness, sexual power

​It is important to understand these doshas(fundamentals) and dependency on each other.. Will explain in different view.
​Our body is like Lightened Candle. Vata(Air+Space), Pitta(fire +Water), Kapha(Water+Soild).
What happens if we blow more air(vata) on this candle, Fire(pitta) will off and water(kapha) solidifies. This is imbalance of Vata(Air) and distrubing Pitta(Fire) and Kapha(Water).
What happens if fire(pitta) is more, All Wax(kapha) will burnout quickly and Air(Vatta) becomes hot.
What happens if Wax becomes Solid(kapha), Wick cant pull wax water and makes flame(pitta), flame will become dull and air(vata) becomes cool.
