FUNDAMENTAL ENERGY COMPLEXES ACCORDING TO AYURVEDA
Ayurveda seeks to know the aspects of life both subjectively (internal) as well as
the objectively (outer).
According to Ayurveda the functioning of the body, can be understood as the
interaction of three fundamental energies called doshas. The three energies are
vata, pitta and kapha.
Vata rules respiration, circulation, elimination, locomotion, movement, speech,
creativity, enthusiasm, and the entire nervous system.
Pitta rules digestion, metabolism, vision, complexion, body temperature, courage,
cheerfulness, intellection and discrimination.
Kapha rules growth, lubrication, fluid secretions, potency, patience, heaviness,
fluid balance, compassion, and understanding.
In the human physiology these three energies interact in a harmonious way to
govern and sustain life. The functioning of these energies depends on each person's
unique DNA. This is constitutional typing is called prakruti. Pakruti helps explain
why people react differently to the same things.
