Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, every person contains some of the universe’s five basic elements: earth, air, fire, water and ether (or space). The combination of these elements in each individual breaks down into three metabolic body types, or doshas. They are known as vata, pitta and kapha. The theory behind Ayurveda states that sickness is caused by an imbalance in one ore more of the doshas, resulting in toxicity in the body and mind.
