Serendipity to enhance and restore Health & Happiness through the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, the science of life

Ayurveda is considered to be the most ancient system of medicine and been in the continuous use by human over 5000 years. Ayurveda is not a mere system of treating of diseases, but it is a total life science that teach about life, quality of life, how to maintain a quality healthy life and how to enjoy life with a total health and wellbeing.  Ayurveda is a powerful natural healing art which adopts a holistic approach to balance and enhance the integrity and vitality of the body, mind and spirit. 

The human is treated as a part of the macro cosmos and thus a part of the nature. Therefore it is essential that we live in harmony with the environment and nature. The building blocks of both the micro-cosmos and macro-cosmos are of five basic elements. The material and energy exchange that takes place between the two cosmos result in an exchange of theses five basic elements and stagnation or reduction of these five basic elements creates imbalance that would manifest as impairments of physiological and mental components in the human. The five basic elements are represented in the body as three fundamental energies, and they govern all the physiological functions of the body. The balanced state of these three vital factors (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) is essential for maintaining health and preventing disease. 

Digestive and metabolic energy is known as Agni and the correct functioning of this bodily fire is also fundamental for the health. When Agni is weaken the nutrition, cellular and tissue functions would be impaired, improperly digested food particles will become toxins (Ama) causing damage to the cells and tissues. As a result of weak Agni quality of metabolic products will deteriorate and behave as toxins in one hand, and on the other hand it becomes difficult to eliminate the digestive and metabolic waste products. 

The nutrients absorbed after digestion of food are assimilated to tissue elements and then to tissue structures known as Dhatu. High quality tissue elements are produced when Agni (digestive and metabolic energy) and Dosa (three vital factors; vata, pitta and kapha) are acting properly. The highest form of biological transformation of nutrients assimilates Ojas which gives the biological strength, vitality and immunity. 

All these physiological components are essential to maintain health and they are governed by mind which is influenced Prana (life energy), sattva (principle of intelligence and purity), Rajas (principle of kinetic energy) and Tamas (principle of darkness, inertia and ignorance).
