Understanding Ayurveda: In Pursuit of True Health

Does absence of disease indicate “good health”?  True health can be achieved only through a holistic approach that targets physical, mental, and social well being.


Ayurveda is the oldest surviving medical system in the world. This intricate system of healing originated in India nearly 5000 years ago. The evidence of ayurveda can be found in the ancient books of wisdom known as the Vedas. Derived from its Sanskrit roots “ayus” (life) and “ved” (knowledge), ayurveda offers a rich and comprehensive outlook to healthy life. 

Ayurveda aims at attaining physical, mental and spiritual and emotional health. This makes ayurveda a holistic medicinal system that can provide “true health”. As per the ayurvedic theories, the health of an individual is greatly influenced by the lifestyle and environment. Ayurveda is therefore based on basic principles of panchmahabhutas and tridosha that greatly rely on correction of lifestyle and environmental factors. To understand the deep meaning of ayurveda we need to understand these basic principles.



Ayurveda believes that all living and non-living things in the universe are made of five basic elements Prithvi (Earth), Jala (Water), Teja (Fire), Vayu (Air) and Aakash (Ether). Even the human body is made up of these elements, which are collectively known as the Panchamahabhutas



Ayurveda works on the concept of tridosha (Vata, Pitta, Kapha), which are actually the physiobiological properties of a person.  Any imbalance caused in tridoshas can lead to disease and therefore creating a balance of tridosha in the body has been considered as a basic target for therapeutics in ayurveda.

By applying these concepts, Ayurveda aims to deliver physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health.
