Ayurvedic Medicin – Pt.3 – The Doshas, Vata, Pitta, Kapha

The primordial nature, the natural state or constitution of the human being, is known in Ayurvedic Medicine by Sanskrit word Prakruti.
The five basic elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether (to which we have already referred in the last article), manifest themselves in the human body the way we referred by Tridosha, which consists of three humors (doshas): Vata , Pitta and Kapha.

The air in the body, Vata, manifests itself from ether (Akasha) as well as air elements.
Pitta manifests itself both from the Fire and Water, while Kapha does from Earth and Water.
