## Frequently Asked Questions
#### What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is one of the oldest medicines known to man, originating over 5,000 years ago.
Ayurveda emphasizes re-establishing balance of the elements in the body through diet,
lifestyle, exercise, and body cleansing. When the elements are balanced the body is healthy.
#### What is a Dosha?
Everything in our body and in our world is composed of five elements: air, water, fire, earth, and space. These elements combine to form the three doshas, vata, kapha, and pitta. When these elements/doshas are out of balance disease can occur in the body and the mind.
The Vata dosha is a combination of space and air. It controls movement and is responsible for basic body processes such as breathing, cell division and circulation. Vata body areas are the large intestine, pelvis, bones, skin, ears, and thighs. People with vata as their main dosha are believed to be quick-thinking, thin, and fast, and are susceptible to anxiety, dry skin, and constipation.
The Kapha dosha represents the elements of water and earth. Kapha is believed to be responsible for strength, immunity, and growth. Kapha body areas are the chest, lungs, and spinal fluid. People with kapha as their main dosha are thought to be calm, have a solid body frame, and are susceptible to diabetes, obesity, sinus congestion, and gallbladder problems.
The Pitta dosha combines fire and water. Controls hormones and the digestive system. Pitta body areas are the small intestines, stomach, sweat glands, skin, blood, and eyes. People with pitta as their primary dosha are thought to have a fiery personality, oily skin, and are susceptible to heart disease, stomach ulcers, inflammation, heartburn, and arthritis.
