What is Ayurveda

Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life.

Based on the idea that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in a person’s consciousness, Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.
Ayurveda treatment starts with an internal purification process, followed by a special diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation.

How does it work

According to Ayurveda,  human body has Prakriti (Basic Characteristic OR nature) and Vikriti (Impurity). This is based on 3 elements of human body – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Healthy body has these three elements in Balance. When any one OR a combination dominates the other element (s) then body becomes sick or unhealthy body.

Ayurveda practitioner (Also called Vaidya) will read your Pulse to understand your Prakriti and also Vikriti. Every human physiology works in it’s unique way, so same medication OR prescription may/may not work on the same ailment across 2 people.

What to Expect in your First Consultation

First consultation is for your wellness consultant to understand your physiology, your Prakriti and Vikriti in a very friendly and safe environment. If consultation is ‘In Person’  then your pulse analysis will be done as the first step and remaining steps are same as online consultation.

During consultation,  Vaidya  Kavita will discuss your life history, life style, food habits, sleep pattern and various other information concerning your health.

First consultation will be approx. 45-60 mins long. Subsequent consultations duration will vary based on the progress and other issues.

Elements of Ayurveda



Prakriti means one's psychosomatic constitution or mind-body type. Our prakriti is our own permanent biological blueprint, a snapshot of our combined Doshas at our first moment of existence.


Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs.



Vikriti is synonymous with a disorder, disease, or pathological manifestation. Vikriti represents our current state of Doshas, or, in other words, a deviation from our inborn constitution.



In the physical body, Vata is the subtle energy of movement - composed of Space and Air. It governs breathing, blinking, muscle and tissue movement, pulsation of the heart, and all movements in the cytoplasm and cell membranes.



In the physical body, Pitta the energy of digestion and metabolism - made up of Fire and Water. It governs digestion, absorption, assimilation, nutrition, metabolism and body temperature.



In the physical body, Kapha the energy that forms the body’s structure - bones, muscles, tendons — and provides the “glue” that holds the cells together, formed from Earth and Water.
