We, at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic, carry out extensive studies on the Principles and Theory of Ayurveda to be able to serve you with the best Ayurvedic remedies.

In conventional medicine, drugs are developed based on the concept that the elimination of specific causes of a disease, such as microorganisms, will cure a disease.
On the other hand, the belief in Ayurvedic medicine is that a disease is the product of an imbalance in the body and mental elements that reduce the body’s resistance to diseases.
If the imbalance is corrected and the body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by herbal formulas, lifestyle changes, and diet, then the body will resist a disease with a goal of eliminating it.
Herbal and herbomineral products regularly used in Ayurveda are believed to strengthen the body’s defences. Scientific evidence is gradually developing in support of the Ayurvedic concept.
The basic philosophy of Ayurveda is that everything in the universe, including life, is composed of 5 elements, called panchamahabhutas. These 5 elements are space (ether), air, fire, water, and earth. These elements are not recognized as physical elements but rather they represent principles unique to the particular element.
These five elements, in turn, give rise to 3 basic types Humours (or forces) that regulate the life cycle and control the entire human body. These humours called Doshas, are vata,pitta, and kapha. Vata arises from space and air, pitta from fire and water, and kapha from water and earth.
These Doshas(humors/energies ) contribute in various proportions to make up prakruti (the essential constitution) of an individual. Prakruti is the genetic in nature. Just as 3 doshas control regulatory aspects of the body, 3 gunas(physiological factors )—sattva, rajas, and tamas—influence and control the mind.
Ayurveda also recognizes 7 dhatus (tissue elements): plasma, blood, muscle, fat, bone, nerve, and reproductive tissue; 3 malas (excretory products): faeces, urine, and sweat; and agni (energy metabolism). Any disturbance in any of these factors can give rise to disease. Because Dosha imbalance is at the core of every dysfunction, keeping doshas in balance will maintain good health.
Ayurveda emphasizes the intrinsic relationship between the body, mind, and consciousness. According to Ayurveda scholars, any imbalance in consciousness (or awareness) leads to undesirable personal lifestyle practices resulting in disharmony and disease process. That is why, in Ayurveda, mind–body interventions such as meditation and yoga are essential to disease treatment and prevention.
The concepts stated above reflect the depth of Ayurveda as a complete health care system. Over the years we have been using these Principles and Theory Of Ayurveda to render Natural Therapies in Knox Melbourne.
