The principles of many of the natural healing systems now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda, including Homeopathy and Polarity Therapy.

Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one's life. 

By balancing the body, it will automatically bring itself to wellness. 

Ayurveda: clears disturbances & balance metabolic and energetic patterns.

Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, each person has a particular pattern of energy—an individual combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics—which comprises their own constitution.

Project's name

Balance is the natural order; imbalance is disorder. Health is order; disease is disorder. Within the body there is a constant interaction between order and disorder.

Ayurveda identifies three basic types of energy or functional principles that are present in everyone and everything.  In Ayurveda, body, mind and consciousness work together in maintaining balance. 

Doshas

Ayurveda recognizes that each of us is unique, each responds differently to the many aspects of life, each possesses different strengths and weaknesses. 

Vata, Pitta and Kapha

Vata is the energy of movement

Pitta is the energy of digestion or metabolism

Kapha, the energy of lubrication and structure.

kapha

Kapha is the energy that forms the body's structure — bones, muscles, tendons — and provides the “glue” that holds the cells together, formed from Earth and Water. Kapha supplies the water for all bodily parts and systems.

It lubricates joints, moisturizes the skin, and maintains immunity.

In balance, kapha is expressed as love, calmness and forgiveness.

Out of balance, it leads to attachment, greed and envy.
