Balance your health with Ayurveda! Ayurveda, which translates as “knowledge of life,” dates back over 5,000 years to the ancient Sanskrit texts, the Vedas. Hinduism and Buddhism have been an influence on the development of many of ayurveda’s central ideas, particularly its fascination with balance, known in Buddhism as Madhyathmaka. Balance is emphasized; suppressing natural urges is seen to be unhealthy. However, people are cautioned to stay within the limits of reasonable balance and measure.
According to the philosophy, universal life force manifests as three different energies, or doshas, known as vata, pitta, and kapha. We’re all made up of a unique combination of these three forces. Though everyone has some of each, most people tend to have an abundance of one or two of the doshas, which leads to imbalance. This unique combination is determined at the moment of conception, and is your own personal blueprint, or prakriti (nature). The key is to preserving your personal balance is to hone your sensitivity for noticing potential imbalances that may arise from your environment or from dietary or emotional imbalances, and to adopt practices that will counter-balance these influences.
