 Origin and Development :- 
Ayurveda is a science which evolved in India around 600 B.C. legend has it that ayurveda system of medicine was instructed to the ancient sages by the gods themselves. It is not just another system of medicine, it is indeed a science and way of life. It is the harmony of body, mind and soul. The word itself is derived from two sanskrit words - AYU meaning life and VEDA meaning knowledge. According to ayurvedic texts, the human body is comprised of five elements of nature: ether, air, fire, water and earth.

Ether - is space, in particular the cellular, synaptic and visceral spaces which allow the tissues to function efficiently.

Air - governs movement in the body. The sensation that is felt when someone touches The skin is transported to the brain through movement. Other examples include breathing through the movement of diaphragm as well as shifting of thoughts & desires.

Fire - represents the qualities of change and transformation. It is therefore, the element Relative to digestion, absorption, assimilation and body temperature.

Water - takes many forms in the body such as saliva, plasma, mucus and urine - at the Same time it is necessary for healthy cell functions.

Earth - is the element which forms the solid structures of the body like bones, cartilage, teeth and skin etc.

As in the traditional Chinese medicine, the ayurvedic system views the human body as a miniature of nature and therefore, the elements listed above are used to creat e the structure of the body. These structural aspects are then combined to creat three doshas (a sanskrit word for forces that disturb) which are responsible for the functional aspect of the body. The three doshas are a combination of two of each of the elements and are used to determine the individual's primary constitution and the factors which contribute are detrimental to the harmony in the body.

The 3 doshas are:
VATA - is the combination of the air and ether.
PITTA - is the combination of water and the fire.
KAPAH -is the combination of water and the earth elements. 

The Science of Life :-  Ayurveda, with its tridosha or three humours system, is able to provide a complete understanding of the cause of health in terms of metabolic balance. Disease is simply understood as an imbalance between the nerve energy (vata), catabolic fire energy (pitta) and anabolic nutritive energy (kapha). All foods and experiences have an effect on the overall balance of these respective humours. Ayurveda therefore aims to keeps the three humours in equilibrium for only then can perfect health be attained and maintained. In ayurveda diagnos is more subjective than objective. But the comprehensiveness of the examination offsets any deficiencies because of subjectivity of the diagnosis. Ayurveda aims to solve many health problems.
