Ayurveda helps to deal with those diseases before they get more serious. As a whole, ayurveda seeks to take a preventative position when it comes to diseases, both physical and mental.
According to ayurveda human body is made up of five elements. An excess of one or more of these could imbalance your body and it leads to illness. According to ayurveda your whole body is considered as a mutually responding system.
Originally, ayurveda came up with three bio-energies or “doshas” which are effectively combinations of these five elements.
For instance “pitta” comes from fire and little water, and “vata” which comes from combination of ether and air. All the three doshas comes in perfect harmony and in balance with each other.

The benefits of ayurveda include physical, mental and spiritual aspects of a person. Ayurveda is mainly focused on balancing the “doshas” so as to restore your health.
Most importantly, a discriminating diet according to your dosha type and well regulated life helps strengthen your natural immune system. Ayurveda is beneficial to your health.
