"If someone wishes for good health,
one must first ask oneself
if he is ready to do away
with reasons for his illness.
Only then it is possible to help him."
Balance and Imbalance:
Ayurveda defines that health is a balanced state of Doshas i.e Vata, Pitta & Kapha and sickness is due to an imbalance of one or combinations of doshas. A balanced state of dosha in Sanskrit is called Prakriti and an imbalanced state is called Vikriti.
Personalized Health program for prevention or restoring balance:
Our individual body/mind type, as determined by the relative dominance of the three doshas, is identified through our physical traits, biorhythms, mental state, personality, behavior, life style, likes and dislikes. Each of these doshas can either be in a state of balance and harmony or in a state of imbalance. A very effective way of diagnosing imbalances in the doshas is through a consultation with a physician trained in the art of Ayurveda and pulse diagnosis. Pulse diagnosis is an invaluable tool, as it allows the physician to detect imbalance in the early stages of the disease process, and therefore sickness can be averted even before symptoms arise.
