Philosophy

Ayurveda transforms to “The science of life” literally. The basic guiding principle lies in the believe that everything in universe living or nonliving originates from a singularity which is absolute in nature. Human body is a perfect being in existence as infinite cells work on micro molecular level, magically self-correcting in harmony just as Universe does.

Dosha Theory

The word “Dosha” primarily means that which gets easily vitiated. Human body (tissues and cells) is always in the process of metabolism which is comprised of catabolism and anabolism. Catabolism refers to the energy consumption along with wear and tear of cells and tissues in the process. Whereas anabolism refers to the opposite process which includes making and maintain of cells and tissues. A healthy state is obtained by balancing these processes. The basic constituents of cells and tissues are formed of Five elements namely earth, water, fire, air, and air which are also called as Pancha Maha Bhootas. The deficiency or excess of their involvement results in various diseases.

Ancient Ayurvedic Experts have conceived this "Pancha Maha Bhootas" theory into "Thri Dosha" (Vatha, Pittha and Kapha) theory for their easy diagnosis and treatment.

"Thri Doshas" are also made up of "Pancha Maha Bhootas". The functions of "Thri Doshas" should be taken in a broad spectrum. "Thri Doshas" decide the "Prakrithi" (body constitution) of a being. If "Vatha" is predominant it is known as "Vatha Prakrithi" (Vatha constitution). A "Vatha Prakrithi" person is prone to be afflicted by "Vatha diseases" if exposed to conducive surroundings and causes. Similarly for "Pittha Prakrithi" and "Kabha Prakrithi".

The "Dosha" theoryis one of the basic theory of Ayurveda. The word "Dosha" is a Sanskrit word whose expansion is "Dooshayati iti Dosha" i.e. That which get easily vitiated is "Dosha".

Body constituents (tissues) are always in the process of metabolism which is a combination of deterioration (Catabolism) on one side and construction (Anabolism) on the other. Health is maintained by balancing these activities. The five maha boots include earth, water, fire, air and ether.

The basic constituents of human body are also the same "Pancha Maha Bhootas." Each and every cell, system and organ is made up of these constituents. The proportion of five "Pancha Maha Bhootas" is different in different systems and organs, based on their involvement, the qualities and functions are also different. The deficiency or excess of their involvement results in various diseases.
