The objective world of the five elements of Sound, Touch, Vision, Taste and Smell – the five fine elements that give rise to the dense elements of Space, Air, Fire, Water and the Earth – from which all matter of the physical world is derived. To use Ayurveda in daily life, one has neither to accept nor even understand this philosophy. But it does provide a deeper insight into how Ayurveda works towards betterment of your health: Five dense elements that go into the making of the constitution of each individual, called Prakriti (Nature). Which in turn is determined by the vital balance of the three physical energies: Vata, Pitta, Kapha – and the three mental energies: Satwa, Rajas, Tamas.
According to Ayurveda human body is a constitute of –
*Tri Dosh (Three physical energies)-VATA, PITTA & KAPHA
*Saptadhatu (Body tissue) RASA, RAKTA, MAMSA, MEDA, ASTHI, MAJJA, SUKRA.
Vata-vayu (Air) + Akash (Space).
Kapha-Jala (Water) + Pirthvi (Earth).
Normal function of Tridoshas:
VATA: Energy, respiration, different body movements, maintain the normal movement of body elements, Control act of defecation etc.
PITTA: Vision, Digestion, Maintain the body temperature, Natural urge of Thirst & Hunger, Pigmentation, Complexion, Intelligence etc.
KAPHA: Lubrication, Steadiness, Strength, Patience, etc.
Depending upon the predominance of the dosha prakurti of an individual is determined. Like Vataprakruti, Pittaprakruti and Kaphaprakruti.
Normal function of Spatadhatu (Body tissues):
RASA (plasma) – prinanam – Nourishment
RAKTA (Blood) – Jivanam – Life
MASA (Muscles) – Lepa – Covering
MEDA (Fat) – Snehan – Lubrication
ASTHI (Bones) – Dharana – Hold’s
MAJJA (Bone marrow) – Purane – Feeling.
SUKRA (Sperm) – Garbhadhan – Progenies.
In normal condition Tridosha & Saptadhatus are responsible for the growth & the proper function of the body. But when they get vitiated they are responsible for various diseases.
AYURVEDIC APPROACH TOWARDS DISEASES:
Depending upon the vitiated dosha or vitiated dhatu’s the approach is different ,like if the vitiation of the dosha is minimal – SHAMAN therapy is adopted & if vitiation is more, then SHODHAN therapy is adopted.
SHAMAN THERAPY: This treatment is done with the help of different herbs, minerals & metals, having no adverse reaction.
SHODHAN i.e PANCHAKARMA THERAPY: With the help of herbal medicine, medicated oils and ghee. Vitiated doshas are eliminated out of the body that are responsible for various diseases. This can be done in healthy individuals as well to maintain the normal Physical & Mental health.
Ayurveda, therefore, is not simply a health care system but a form of lifestyle adopted to maintain perfect balance and harmony within the human existence.
Ayurveda thus offers a unique blend of science and philosophy that balances the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual components necessary for holistic health.
