Ayurveda

Ayurveda - the ancient Vedic (Indian) medical science, whose origins can be traced to centuries, over 5000 years.
'Ayurveda' - a word derived from two roots: 1. 'Ayu' - a life that is reasonable and complete combination of four aspects: the soul, mind, senses and body. Each of the four aspects performs its own functions and contributes to the integrity, which we call life. 2. 'Veda' - knowledge.
Ayurveda - the science of life, dealing not only with the treatment of certain diseases, but also a complete way of life, how to live long, healthy, harmonious, and the best possible life.
Health in Ayurveda - not just physical well-being, it is - mental, physical and social well-being of the individual.
Ayurveda helps to know and understand their own nature (individual constitution), the method of feeding, hygiene and prevention of many different ailments.
Ayurveda states that health is, first and foremost, is composed as a basic characteristic of human mentality, but it is understandable, perhaps, only at the level of quantum mechanics, since it is closer to what we call the primordial energy and the key to managing body lies in our minds. With the right to use it, we can completely control the functions of our body and gets rid of the disease and maintain good health.
Five elements
According to Ayurvedic theory of five elements, man - it is a small likeness of the universe. All that is in the human body, is present in one form or another in the great body of the universe. Ayurveda is that everything is composed of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. The properties of these "building blocks" essential for understanding the causes of balance and imbalance in the body.
Plot - the personification of the solid state of matter. Its distinctive features - stability, stiffness and hardness. In the outside world the stones and the soil firmly resist the action of the destructive forces of wind and water. The same "earth", stable structures are present in our body. This bone cells and tissues - a system which circulates blood and oxygen. Land - is a stable substance.
Water symbolizes change. In the outside world is involved in water cycle: evaporation - cloud formation - precipitation. Streams of water flowing down from the hills into the sea, gradually erode the hard rock. River water moves soil particles and it contains nutrients, and thanks to the rivers at the dawn of civilization began to develop trade and cultural exchanges, all life on our planet exists due to the presence of water. In our body, blood, lymph and other fluids, washing the cells in the body and moving vessels that supply the energy of all parts of the body, removing waste, regulate body temperature and delivered to the relevant organs of substance required to deal with foreign substances, as well as transfer from one organ to other hormonal information.Water - a volatile substance.
Fire - a force that transforms solids into liquids and gases, and vice versa. Under the action of sunlight the ice melts and turns into water, and water - evaporates. Due to the fire water gains the ability to transform, and so there are climatic cycles. The sun - the reason the cycle of heat and other forms of energy in nature. Solar energy arise food chain. In our body, the fire element is present in the form of interatomic and intermolecular attraction. The fire digests food, partly converting it into fat (long-term energy stores) and muscle, and partly by distilling it into accessible energy. The fire - the cause of nervous activity, including its highest forms, such as feelings and thoughts. Fire - that form without substance.
AIR - a gaseous form of matter. He is mobile and volatile. We can not see the wind, the swaying branches of trees, but we feel. We see how the material can be air, watching the hurricane, typhoon or tornado: developing, they incorporate the power to destroy - give it. We feel the air with each inhalation and exhalation. We feel, as he passes through the respiratory tract, getting into the lungs. If breathing is interrupted even for a moment, we feel with all my being that the air is strongly needed for life. In our body through the air (oxygen) oxidation reactions occur, ie the transfer of energy from one form to another. Without air there can be no fire. Air - this being without form.
AIR - is a space in which resides all things. The inner space of our body like outer space, in which the heavenly bodies are separated by a million miles away: in the composition of each atom at 0.001% of the charged particles have 99,999% voids.That space, that is, the distance between objects, allows us to distinguish things from each other. Broadcast - it's just the distance separating the material objects from each other

Ayurveda and human potential
Ayurveda teaches that man - a microcosm of the universe. The man - a child of the cosmic forces of the external environment, the macrocosm. His individual existence is inseparable from the total cosmic manifestation. In a holistic sense of Ayurveda views health and sickness "take into account the inherent human connection between the individual and the cosmic spirit, individual and cosmic consciousness, energy and matter.
According to the teachings of Ayurveda are inherent to man four biological and spiritual aspirations: the religious, the financial prosperity, and freedom of reproduction. Good health is necessary for the implementation of these requests.Ayurveda helps the healthy to maintain health and restore it to the patient. This is - health metaphysical healing science of life, the mother art of healing. Practicing Ayurveda - means to promote the welfare, health and creative growth.
Working knowledge of self-improvement can be grasped through the study of each of truths of Ayurveda. Can significantly prolong life and to get rid of suffering by means of the proper balance of all energy in the body. Individual's ability to self-improvement - the basic concept of Ayurvedic science.
