In Ayurveda, people generally belong to one of three doshas (primal metabolic forces): kapha, pitta and vata. Dual-dosha types and even a tri-dosha type are also possible.

Ayurveda, the holistic healing system of India, is in the news often these days, but it is actually one of the oldest continuing healing systems on the planet. Best of all, it can help you live a longer, healthier life.

Translated from Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “the science of life.” Ayurveda is a huge collection of interrelated practices that encompass literally every aspect of a person’s health and lifestyle. This health system emphasizes the science of longevity, in particular, while focusing on promoting good health throughout that lengthened life.

Ayurveda is sometimes called “the mother of all healing.” According to scholars of Ayurveda, this system is the origin of most of the world’s healing systems — all Asian medical systems evolved from the core of Ayurveda. Although historians debate the dates, some authorities maintain there is evidence for written records of Ayurveda going back 5,000 years and an oral tradition going back thousands more years.

Recently Ayurveda has been popularized in the West by Deepak Chopra, M.D., and, to a lesser degree, by a handful of other authors. Yet the system is not well understood in the United States.

Mind, body and spirit are utterly entwined in Ayurveda. The practice looks to create a balance between all aspects of our being, including emotion and environment, and it places emphasis on the ability of the human body to heal itself, with the assistance and support of a variety of nontoxic therapies, including medicinal foods, dietary programs and herbal medicines.
