How You’ll Achieve Balance

Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of prevention and health maintenance. There are several elements involved in this:

  • Balanced mental and emotional health
  • Diet & Lifestyle
  • The use of spices, herbs & herbal formulations

The knowledge of Ayurveda enables a person to create balance in body, mind and consciousness according to individual constitution. With that, you can adopt diet and lifestyle changes unique to you for optimal health and balance.


Every person has a unique fingerprint. Similarly, you have your own pattern of energy that is unlike anyone else’s. It’s comprised of your physical, emotional and mental characteristics that make up your constitution. One’s constitution is determined at their conception through various factors, remaining the same throughout life.

A disturbance in the balance can occur from many factors, such as

  • Stress & trauma
  • Diet & lifestyle choices

  • Seasons & weather
  • Phase of life


Maintaining balance of your unique constitution, is vital to health.

Ayurveda recognizes three functional energies in the body. Each are present in everyone and everything. There are no adequate words in English, so the original Sanskrit words are used:

Vata. The energy of movement.

Pitta. The energy of digestion or metabolism.

Kapha. The energy of lubrication, structure and stability.

Everyone has their own unique combination of these qualities, which combine to create movement that enables the body to function.

In Ayurveda, the cause of disease is viewed as lacking proper cellular function because of a deficiency or excess in vata, pitta or kapha. It may also be due to the presence of toxins.

Body, mind and consciousness work together to maintain balance, with each viewed as a different facet of your being. To balance the body, mind and consciousness one must understand how vata, pitta and kapha work together.

The Ayurvedic philosophy states that our cosmos is an interplay of the five elements: air, water, fire, space and earth. Vata, pitta and kapha are each a combination or permutation of these elements, manifesting as patterns seen in all of creation.

Vata is composed of space and air, governing all functions of movement such as breathing, blinking, heartbeat and more. It promotes your flexibility and creativity when in balance. When out of balance, it produces degeneration.

Pitta is made from fire and water, governing all functions of metabolism such as digestion, hormones, nutrition, body temperature and more. When balanced, pitta promotes intelligence and understanding. When out of balance, it produces inflammation.

Kapha is comprised of earth and water, governing all functions of lubrication and stability such as moisturizing, nourishing, and maintaining immunity. It brings water to the body, moisturizes skin and maintains immunity. In balance, kapha is expressed as calmness and peace. When out of balance, it will lead to lethargy and obesity.
