Ayurveda: Doshas 101 by Dr. Christie Smirl

Ayurveda is an ancient holistic health system originate over 5,000 years ago in India. Ayurveda is now widely practiced internationally. To understand the foundation tenets of Ayurveda is, the doshas must be mastered.  Here are the dosha basics. There are three doshas that control physiology of the human body - Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The health science of Ayurveda is also based on the Panchamahaboota theory. Panchamahaboota means 5 elements - Akasha (space), Vayu (wind), Agni (fire), Aap (water), Pritvi (earth). Each dosha is formed by a paring of these elements.  Let's take a look at how these elements compose Vata, Pitta and Kapha to better understand Ayurvedic physiology.
