Ayurvedic medicine is considered one of the oldest systems of medicine. It is based on 3 different doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. As a result, diseases and health problems arise from an imbalance of these three energies.
The main purpose of Ayurvedic medicine is to help people to live longer, healthier, and more balanced without the need to resort to medicines or surgery or live with long-term illnesses. In fact, it is not by chance that the word Ayurveda in Sanskrit could be translated as The science of life.

What are the Foundations of Ayurvedic Medicine/Treatment?
Ayurvedic medicine is based on a simple but well-established and effective principles. In fact, as in all the oriental disciplines, the Ayurveda relies on the five elements of the universe and the doshas that characterize the human being.
This type of treatment is very different from Western therapies because people are not treated from a physical point of view but the emotional cause of a disease is examined. In modern terms, Ayurveda was the first to admit the existence of psychosomatic diseases. In an Ayurvedic massage session, the Ayurvedic practitioner in Turkey or Istanbul will carefully evaluate the dosha of the person undergoing the treatment. Based on this evaluation, the appropriate massage oil and technique will be chosen. Thus, it is normal to have a short interview with the best Ayurvedic doctor before the treatment to maximize the benefits of this technique.
The balance of the three Doshas
What does it mean to undergo an Ayurvedic visit? The five elements of space, air, fire, water, and earth, can be divided into three factors called Doshas: Vata, which encloses space and air, Pitta, fire and water, and Kapha, water and earth. When we are born the relationship between the three doshas is in balance, but in the course of life, it can break, in these cases the disease takes over.
Balancing energies through nutrition in Turkey and Istanbul
In Ayurvedic medicine, a healthy diet, stress management, and herbal remedies go hand in hand to try to restore the energy balance in the body. Everything is therefore aimed at keeping the three doshas as balanced as possible.
According to Ayurvedic medicine, each of us has its own unique balance of these three forces that manifest themselves in personality. So, we have Vata, Pitta, and Kapha characteristics, although, generally, one of the three doshas prevails over the other two.
The predominant aspect or Dosha is the conductor that influences and determines the constitution, appetite, energy levels, mood, and character. Each Dosha possesses both physical and emotional characteristics. So, in Ayurvedic treatment the first requirement to consider is the uniqueness of the person.
If you rebalance the doshas, it will also be easier to manage stress, have a diet more suitable to your body, have the ability to deal with changes and to maintain more stable relationships.
Ayurvedic treatment can help to relieve stress and to restore a healthier rhythm, whose benefits are reflected in every field. Another important aspect taken into account by Ayurvedic medicine is the power of the mind and its connection with the body.
