A brief introduction about ayurveda
Ayurveda provides a holistic approach to life by maintaining a dynamic equilibrium between the three element named doshas , dhatus and malas of which the human body is composed of .
Ayurveda says, inside the body there are three types of doshas which govern the physical and chemical activities. They are vayu (air) , pitta(bile) and kapha (phlegm) . These doshas are again divided into five each .
Dhatu is basically the body tissues which is responsible for the functioning of the systems and organs and the structure of the body. The seven dhathus are rasa( chyle including lymph) , Blood, muscles, fat , bone , bone marrow and semen.
Stool , Urine and sweat are the three important types of malas recognised in Ayurveda. Maintaining the equilibrium between these elements are important in Ayurveda for healthy living.
A disease is caused by the obstruction of the channels of circulation. The obstruction is caused by accumulation of waste products. The waste products can be eliminated if the enzymes of the locality are stimulated. Ayurvedic medicines do exactly that to control the diseases.
