Episode Description

Ayurveda is holistic medicine based on the five elements - space or ether, air, fire, water and earth. We will discover how the five elements affect physical health. The energies of the the five elements are described as VATA, space and air or “That which moves”, PITTA, fire or “That which transforms” and KAPHA, water and earth or “That which sustains.” These are the “THE DOSHAS” and are one of three pillars of health described in ayurveda. Any imbalance is a disease according to ayurveda and it is the aggravation of the DOSHAS that cause disease. In ayurveda, digestion means not only the digestion of food, but the digestion of thoughts and experiences. Strong digestive fire is one of the main pathways to health and if food isn’t digested properly it creates toxins which accumulate in the body over time and cause disease. Sleep is the diet of the mind and is crucially important to complete health. Videos and blogs on “Physical Health” can be viewed at the web-site www.ataytv.com
