What is Ayurveda?

Dr. Charles Elder, will answer this question, and many more.

Dr. Elder is the Senior Physician in the Department of Internal Medicine at Kaiser Permanente Northwest, the Physician Lead, Integrative Medicine, KPNW and an Ayurvedic doctor of the Complimentary and Alternative Medicine clinic. He has a resume longer than my body at 19 pages referencing his research, articles, education, and positions.

Definition of Ayurveda:

A·yur·ve·da
ˌäyərˈvādə/
noun. The traditional Hindu system of medicine, which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing.
 
Doctor Elder gives his definition in the podcast, yet if you can read the philosophy of this ancient health care system:
In Ayurveda, one’s individual nature is mirrored in their body type, aka dosha. The doshas reflect 3 main governing principles of nature, vata (air), pitta (fire), and kapha (earth-water).
Each person is a unique combination of these 3 principles or doshas, with different proportions of each existing within.
 
One’s dosha depicts what and how they eat, how they exercise, when they sleep, and even where they prefer to live.
