Ayurveda is the world's most ancient system of preventive health care. Developed in India over 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda is a natural approach for creating balance and strengthening the body's healing abilities.

  • Ayu = Life
  • Veda = Science
  • Ayurveda = Science of Life

The Ayurvedic concept of physical health revolves around the theory of Five elements (Air, Space, Fire, Water & Earth) & 3 Dosha concepts. These 3 doshas are the physiological or physico-chemical vital forces in the body.

Vata (Air & Space dominated):

Governs the principle of movement and therefore can be considered as the force, which directs the movements of nerve impulses, circulation, respiration

Pitta (Fire & Water dominated):

Responsible for the process of transformation. The transformation of foods into nutrients that our bodies can assimilate is an example of a Pitta function.

Kapha (Water & Earth dominated):

Responsible for growth and lubrication of joints. The Ayurvedic system is holistic and considers human being as part of collective consciousness or universal soul and nature. Ayurveda clearly defines connection between body, mind and surrounding nature.

The Ayurvedic centre at Burjeel Day Surgery Center aims to restore the natural balance of your mind, body and soul by applying genuine Ayurvedic principles to your day-to-day life.
