DOSHAS

The dosha principle is mainly for establishing the fact that, the functioning of the body is in accordance with the surroundings. Everything in nature, including our bodies, is made from the five eternal elements of space, air, fire, water and earth. These five elements combine to form the three basic body-mind profiles, called doshas. Doshas govern the psychological, biological, and the physiological aspects of the mind and the body. As morning, noon, evening, night, wind and sunlight create changes in the surroundings our body inclined to react and interact with the surroundings and various changes take place in the subtlest cellular level of the body. Function wise these changes are manifested in our body in the form of doshas. Ayurvedic ‘Panchakarma’ (Five step purification therapy) procedures are mainly for balancing these dhoshas and help the body to regain its rhythm with the surrounding nature.
