How could Ayurveda Tea help you?
The practice of Ayurvedic medicine / Ayurveda Tea is one of the worlds oldest holistic healing systems, developed five thousand years ago in India. Based on the belief that health and wellness was dependent on a balance between the mind, body and spirit. It emphasises the cleansing of the body to promote healthiness. The term “Ayurveda” derives from Sanskrit words; 'Ayus' meaning life and 'Veda' meaning knowledge.
It is based on the belief that every person is made from a combination of five basic elements of the universe; Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.
These elements are combined in the human body to form three energies called “Doshas” which control how the body works;
- Vata dosha (space and air)
- Pitta dosha (fire and water)
- Kapha dosha (water and earth)
They blend of physical, emotional and mental characteristics. Everyone has a unique mix of doshas but one is usually more dominant, and each dosha controls a different body function. In Ayurvedic medicine, health is defined as a state of balance between mind, body and the environment- achieving a joyful state of health by creating a life style that supports your unique dosha.
