Questions about Ayurveda

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient natural medical science which uses nature’s energy in a scientific manner for the healing and well-being of your life. Its origins date back more than 5000 years in India and Sri Lanka. Ayurveda translates into ‘science of life’ (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge).

How are Ayurveda Treatments done?

Ayurveda works by focusing on the detoxification and harmonization of the body by the use of medicinal herbs, special ayurvedic diets and with treatments such as massages, steam baths or oil applications.

What are Doshas?

Doshas are the energies in your body. Each person has their own unique constitution type (Prakruti), personality and health based on the individual levels of these energies/doshas in the body. The three doshas: Vatha, Pitta, and Kapha correspond to the five elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth). Also known as mind-body types, the doshas constitute a unique blend of the physical, emotional, and mental characteristics.

What are Vatha, Pitta, Kapha?

VATHA is connected with the nervous system, the mind and joints. It is like air and changeable like the wind; sometimes soft and sometimes turbulent. Anatomically, it is located just below the belly button and governs the hip area of the body.

PITTA is connected with the digestive system, metabolism and hormones. It is like fire and responsible for all the hot factors in the body. Anatomically the PITTA region is located between the heart and the belly button.

KAPHA is connected with the body fluids and skeletal structure. It is like water and is responsible for all fluids, mucous and muscles in the body. The corresponding body region is above the heart.

What can Ayurveda do for me?

Many physical complaints can be considerably reduced in an ayurveda cure and – more often than not – even chronic diseases can be alleviated. In general ayurvedic medicines and therapies are able to achieve success even with illnesses that are considered hard to cure with Western medicine. In contrast to conventional Western medicine, the ayurvedic approach to healing also scrutinizes the mental condition and background and potential other causes of an illness.
