It is said that Ayurveda is the world's oldest form of medicine, tracing its origins in India back at least 3,500 years. It is based on the body's innate healing ability, and is thought to be the first healing system in the world that is based on natural principles rather than on superstition or magic. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach to a person's health, and considers emotional and physical aspects of a person's wellbeing, and its treatment methods include the use of herbs and exercise, as well as nutrition and detoxification.

Like all good health modalities, Ayurveda is concerned with the prevention of ill-health, so that the individual can enjoy a long and healthy life. According to its teachings, the constitution of an individual depends on the balance of the three vital body energies called "doshas". If they are balanced, then good health is enjoyed by the person concerned. Of vital importance according to Ayurvedic principles, is the need for the digestive system to be functioning properly. The balance of the doshas is affected by emotional factors and by overindulgence, and this in turn has a negative effect upon the digestive system.

The holistic nature of Ayurveda is reflected in the diverse nature of possible treatments, which may include nutritional and herbal treatments, as well as lifestyle recommendations.

The three doshas are called Vata, Kapha, and Pitta. Vata is considered to be the dosha that produces movement, and is symbolized by air. Kapha is considered to be a stabilizing force which is involved in the structure of the body, and is symbolized by earth. Pitta is symbolized by fire. It is associated with dehydration, heat and digestion. Because of its fiery association, Pitta is considered to be the force that provides the impetus for the Kaphic or material substance to be converted into the Vatic or gaseous force which animates and activates.

If there is a disturbance in any of the three doshas, then that disturbance will be reflected in both the physical and emotional wellbeing of the patient. According to Ayurvedic principles, each person is born with their own unique balance of doshas, and a person's constitution and potential health problems reflect the nature of this balance. Ayurveda has a huge number of herbal cures for a range of health issues, and even has a history of surgical intervention for a number of health problems.

Ayurveda has been recognized by the World Health Organization and is widely practiced in India today.
