Vat Pit Kaf

Ayurveda is a hundred percent natural science. The causes of illness are spiritual factors when you loose faith in the divine presence, internal factor like liquids and food substances we consume and external factors like lifestyles or seasons. The major cause of disease is imbalance like poor digestion and low immunity. When our body is unable to digest the food we eat, it remains in the body. The essential nutrients in the body are not absorbed and the food starts decaying. This decaying food releases toxins cause diseases in the body. Thus, good digestion is the most important factor that influences your health.

According to Ayurveda all life forms are made from three energy elements namely Vayu or Vat i.e. air, Pitt is fire and Kapha or water. When all the three elements vat, pitt and kapha are balanced a person is healthy and when not, he is ill. The imbalance of one or more of these elements causes all disorders. Every person's constitution or Dosha has one or more of these elements. A vayu dosha (air constitution) has a bony, thin constitution with drying skin, constipation and gas. The mental state of such persons is nervous and anxious.

The persons with the fire constitution or pit dosha, Ayurveda says these are strong, good leaders, goal oriented and are warm in nature. In case they have the imbalance in the pitt dosha they are impatient and hot tempered. The physical symptoms are rashes, acne, liver, kidney, heart and spleen diseases. The kapha dosha or water constitution persons are loyal, calm and strong. When they have imbalance in the kapha dosha they become lethargic with a greedy nature. Their physical problems may range from overweight, congestion, kidney or heart problems etc.
