  • Pitta (Fire+Water): Responsible for body heat, digestion, perception, understanding, hunger, thirst &anger.
  • Kapha (Water+Earth): Responsible for stability, energy, lubrication, forgiveness, attachment and holding.

 

Health (Swastha) according to Ayurveda

Health means when the digestive fire(Agni) is in balanced, vata, pitta and kapha are in equilibrium, the three waste products (urine, faeces, and sweat) are produced and excreted in  normal levels, the five senses are functioning normally and the body, mind and consciousness are harmoniously working as one. When the balance of any of these systems is disturbed the disease process begins.
