What is Ayurveda?

Wellness. Fitness. Health. These terms have now become a trend and have fortunately reshaped people's awareness of their health. In the course of this development, many people are also becoming increasingly interested in Ayurveda.

What many do not realise: Ayurveda is much more than just oil massages or relaxation treatments. Ayurveda is an ancient science that originated from traditional Indian philosophy and was first described in the ancient Indian scriptures "Vedas". The term Ayurveda is made up of "Ayu" - life - and "Veda" - knowledge - and is therefore also known as the science of life or the knowledge of life. Yoga and meditation also have their roots in the Vedic sciences. Long forgotten in India, Ayurveda experienced a renaissance, mainly on the initiative of the Vedic master Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who opened up the ancient knowledge to modernity. Ayurvedic experts as well as Western doctors and scientists have been working on this comprehensive topic for many years.

The 3 doshas

Ayurveda is also the knowledge of the three doshas called Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These in turn are influenced by the 5 elements of space, air, fire, water and earth. It is therefore not surprising that the term "dosha" translates as "influencing factor". Every person is characterised by an individual blueprint, an individually pronounced influence of these all-determining 5 elements. Every life is made of the same "building blocks". Vata, the "principle of movement", is characterised by space and air. Fire and water characterise the "metabolic principle" Pitta, while the "structural principle" Kapha is derived from the elements earth and water.
From birth, every person carries all three doshas in different combinations, interacting and constantly changing. The combination determines the predominant individual constitution of a person, their current state of mind. All doshas are at work in each individual, but one is in the foreground over the others. In addition to the "pure" constitutional types, there are the so-called mixed types with two dominant doshas, but also the three-dosha type, in which the dominances are equally distributed (10 types in total). There are no good or bad constitutional types.

Kapha - The structural principle

... is significantly influenced by the element water (and also earth), through which it has a unifying effect. Where there would otherwise only be dryness and drift, water holds together and enables new structures and growth. Kapha gives people strength, stability, suppleness and structure, it keeps the fluid balance in equilibrium and is a source of energy. A balanced Kapha gives strength, endurance, a good immune system, patience and mental stability. The properties of Kapha are heavy, oily, cold, tough, firm, soft and sweet.

Pitta - The metabolic principle

...directs the processes of exchange. The element of fire is predominant: the acting heat transforms forms or states. In the human body, Pitta regulates the metabolism and body temperature. Pitta causes everything to constantly change and therefore also stands for mental flexibility, intelligence, warmth, courage and discernment. Pitta digests everything and transforms everything - whether food or sensory impressions. Fire and water characterise the properties of "pitta": light, hot, somewhat oily, sharp, pungent, liquid, flowing, mobile, acidic.

Vata - The principle of movement

...causes the change of position of all things in the universe. As such, it is responsible for the nervous system, respiration, elimination, circulation, musculature and all movement in the body. Balanced Vata brings energy, creativity, enthusiasm and an alert mind. Air and space characterise the properties of "Vata": dry, light, cool, mobile, rough, clear.

The Ayurvedic view of man

In Ayurvedic teachings, the human being is not viewed in isolation, but as a unity of body, mind and soul in its interrelationship with the environment and nature. Each person differs from all others in their individual physical and mental constitution. With a comprehensive, holistic view of nature, man in nature and all the factors surrounding and influencing him, Ayurveda is a health teaching that emphasises health. While today's conventional medicine mostly looks at illness and its symptoms, thus analysing the body separately from the mind or other influences, Ayurveda has a completely different starting point: the balance or rather the equilibrium of the 3 all-determining principles Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Where does Ayurveda come in?

Every individual has an individual, constantly changing balance with a natural dosha distribution. Influences such as phases of life, times of day or seasons, life situations have a permanent influence on the individual balance, on the different characteristics of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The balance is therefore not static, but always in flux. Health is, so to speak, constantly recreating itself; the human being is actually a self-regulating (cybernetic) system. However, our regulatory powers can be exhausted by the influence of stress, anger or poor nutrition, for example, or by losing the ability to listen to ourselves in our often overly noisy world, to endure silence, to recognise the quiet power within ourselves, in our nature. In other words, to be able to feel joy in ourselves and not just joy through external factors.
From the very beginning, Ayurveda endeavours to shape the environment in such a way that disturbances are avoided. Ayurvedic teachings therefore contain instructions for building, living, eating, drinking, sleeping, partnership and much more. Of course, the aim is always to keep the 3 doshas in balance. In this respect, Ayurveda is a preventative health teaching with the aim of staying healthy. Even the smallest disturbances can lead to "illness" or discomfort - conversely, small corrections in the way of life can lead to a healthy lifestyle.
