According to Ayurveda, an individual's health depends on a delicate balance among mind, body and spirit. Ayurvedic medicine aims to improve the health of an individual by creating harmony among mind, body and soul. Though Ayurveda usually promotes good health, it is also used to treat a number of health conditions.

According to the theory of Ayurveda, the human body is comprised of five basic elements – space, air, fire, water and earth. Each of these elements combine with each other to create three life forces (doshas) namely Vata dosha (space and air), Pitta dosha (fire and water) and Kapha dosha (water and earth). In everyone's body, these doshas are present in a unique mix whereas there's one dosha that dominates the other two. And the well-being of health depends on the balance of these doshas.
