Tridoshas in Ayurveda - Vata, Pitta and Kapha

Presented here is a video of Dr. M. Prasad,  Ayurveda doctor and the Director of Sunethri Ayurvedashram & Research Centre at Thrissur in Kerala, India, tells about how a human body maintains equilibrium. A human body is It is controlled by the three bio-regulating principles, that is the Tridoshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

In Ayurveda the body is considered to be a blend of the five basic elements: Sky, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. When these elements are in perfect equilibrium, the body houses the universal consciousness and echoes the harmony of nature. It is controlled by the three bio-regulating principles – the Tridoshas – which when in equilibrium are called Tridhatus. Vata, Pitta and Kapha are three doshas in Ayurveda.

Each of the three doshas has its own duties to be performed at various sites in the system. Kapha is responsible for giving strength required to perform work and to resist decay and degeneration. The duty of the Vata humor is to maintain balance in the psychological activities of the other two doshas keeping itself in tune with them. When all the tridoshas perform their respective duties in a balanced manner, we say that the person is in a healthy state or enjoying ‘wasthyam’ (well being). The physician at the time if diagnosis finds out the cause illness and he decides what therapeutically interferences is necessary for its restoration.
