The Simple Premise Behind Healing According to Ayurveda

“The path of healing is based on a simple premise. If there is an excess of a particular quality in your body or mind, then reducing your exposure to that quality and taking in the opposite quality will assist your body and mind in returning to its proper balance. It is really just common sense. By adjusting the qualities we take in, the elemental balance of the body is changed and with that, the physiological forces (doshas) that govern its function. As proper doshic balance is reestablished, normal physiology is restored and healing takes place.”
