Ayurveda believes that the body is made up of five elements – earth, water, air, fire, space. Any problem in the balance of these elements leads to disease, or dis-ease: lack of ease. By dividing people into three categories, or doshas – Vata dosha, Pitta dosha, Kapha dosha – Ayurveda helps us to understand what our minds and bodies need and to choose food to suit our own individual constitutions.
