In Ayurvedic studies, every person is made of five basic elements found in the universe: Space, Air, Fire, Water, Earth. These elements combine in the human body to form three life forces or energies called doshas. Each dosha is made up of two of the five elements:
Vata- Space & Air
Pitta- Fire & Water
Kapha- Water & Earth
It’s believed that your chances of getting sick and the health issues you develop are linked to the balance of your doshas. Once you understand your body's natural habits, you can apply Ayurvedic remedies to help create more balance in your life.
