AYURVEDA

Man enjoys perfect health when three factors of the body, vata (wind), pitta (bile) and kapha (phlegm) exist in a state of balance.

When one of them exceeds or declines through bad food or habit, diseases occur. Treatment of the diseases consists in restoring the balance of the three factors.

The vata works in the body in five ways -as Prana, Udana, Samaria, Vyana and Apana. In these different aspects, it enables the upward and downward movements of man. It controls his mind and senses. It regulates his body activities.

There is fire or energy in pitta or bile. It digests food. Kapha or phlegm gives man his bulk, lustre, strength and knowledge.

After Bharadvaja, Atreya was the famous teacher of Ayurveda. He lived in the eighth century B.C. His teachings are collected in a book called Atreya Samhita.
