The word “ayurveda” means “life-knowledge”. The central theoretical ideas of Ayurveda was developed in the mid-first millennium BCE, and show parallels with Sāṅkhya and Vaiśeṣika philosophies, as well as with Buddhism and Jainism. In Ayurveda balance is emphasized, and suppressing natural urges is considered unhealthy and claimed to lead to illness. Ayurveda in Nepal is just about these balance and suppression.
Human beings are part of nature. Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments. In addition to that movement, transformation, and structure. In Sanskrit is called as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth). These primary forces are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Each human being has a unique proportion of these three forces that shape their nature. If Vata is dominant in our Ayurvedic Consultation system, we tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable. If Pitta predominates in our nature, we tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented and we have a strong appetite for life. When Kapha prevails, we tend to be easy-going, methodical and nurturing. Although each of us has all three forces, most people have one or two elements that predominate.
