Balancing body, mind, spirit, and social well-being
In Ayurveda, perfect health is defined as "a balance between body, mind, spirit, and social well-being." In fact, the twin concepts of balance and connectedness echo throughout all Ayurvedic texts, thought, and practice.
Like all holistic health systems, Ayurveda emphasizes the unshakable connections between the body, mind, and spirit. However, Ayurveda's connectedness extends far beyond the individual, reaching into the community and nature itself.
Basic but Vital Components of this Philosophy
All things in the universe, both living and nonliving, are joined together.
In fact, everything in the universe is actually made of the same five gross natural elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water, Earth
A need for yoga, healthy food, conversation and drinking water.
There is a deep connection between the self and the environment.
We are all initially connected within ourselves, to the people surrounding us, to our immediate environment, and to the universe. This balanced connectivity ensures good health.
We remain healthy if we retain balance, interacting with our environment in an effective and wholesome way.
The ayurvedic concepts of prakruti & doshas
What are the Ayurvedic Concepts Of Prakruti & Doshas?
Ayurvedic philosophy maintains that people are born with a specific constitution, which is called the prakruti. The prakruti is established at conception and is viewed as a unique combination of physical and psychological characteristics that impact the way each person functions.
Throughout life, an individual's underlying prakruti remains the same. However, one's prakruti is constantly influenced by various internal, external and environmental factors like day and night, seasonal changes, diet, lifestyle choices, and more. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention of illness, and recommends maintaining health through following daily and seasonal regimens which create balance.
Ayurveda teaches that three qualities, called doshas, form important characteristics of the prakruti, or constitution. These doshas are called vata, pitta, and kapha, and they all have a specific impact on bodily functions.
Adherents of Ayurvedic medicine believe that each person has an individual, "tailored" balance of the three doshas. Individual doshas are constantly "in flux," and are influenced by eating, exercising, and relating to others. This explains what makes each of us so unique from one another, even if some traits may be similar.
Dosha imbalances and your health
Ayurvedic philosophy believes that dosha imbalance produces symptoms that are related to that dosha and are different from symptoms of another dosha imbalance. (For example, if the aggressive and "hot" pitta-prominent person aggravates pitta, he/she may develop a prickly rash or an acidic stomach.) Many factors can cause imbalance, including a poor diet, too much or too little physical or mental exertion, chemicals, or germs.
As a result, what each person needs becomes highly individualized.

“I really love this salt. I’ve been mostly using it as a finishing salt … it does have a slightly different flavor than regular salt, but I like it and just like regular salt, it enhances the taste of my food. I was pleased with my order from delivery to use. If you are looking for a different – possibly healthier – version of salt, give it a try.”
