The Ayurvedic approach is that
the body should be always kept in
balance and the immune system should be at peak efficiency so that infections and ailments
does not affect the body. If there is a lapse in balance, then rebalance and
specific herbal treatments may be necessary to bring the body back to health.
To stay healthy, the five basic elements
of the Universe (Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Ether) need to remain balanced and
in harmony within the body. These elements exclusively design each one of us
and are known as our Dosha.
Knowing your Dosha will help you
determine lifestyle choices and the nutritional needs that will benefit you
most on the quest to create optimal wellness and beauty.
