Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient form of holistic treatment practice from the East. Ayurveda is believed to have originated in India over 3000 years ago. Ayurveda uses a whole-body approach or a comprehensive approach to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions.

The philosophy behind Ayurvedic medicine puts great emphasis on harmony, a healthy body, and a healthy immune system. The first step in Ayurvedic treatment is the diagnosis which can help the practitioner determine your individual and body type or the dosha type. A dosha analysis is done by a series of tests including observation of the tongue, reading the pulse and specific questioning.
According to Ayurvedic theory, there are three main body types or doshas. According to the principals of ancient Ayurvedic medicine, these body types are Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, which each feature specific physical, mental and emotional attributes. While Vata is the wind element, Pitta is the element of fire and Kapha is the element of earth and water. Every human being is a mix of these dosha types, but most of us may have one and sometimes two dominant dosha types.
As per Ayurveda, one of the causes of illness is dosha imbalance. Practitioner adopts a customised treatment and diet plan which will depend on your dosha type and the particular dosha involved in a specific condition or illness. Treatments are a combination of Ayurvedic herbal medicines and supplements, ayurvedic treatments and an ayurvedic diet. Strategies used may also include modification to long-term diet and lifestyle changes.
